The video I finally found is:
Love Like This (live)
by The Belonging Co.
featuring Hope Darst
I've never known love like this, so beautiful
I'll never get used to this, my heart is Yours
Of this I am convinced, from now until the end
I'll never know love like this, so beautiful
You don't leave me where You found me
You pull me up out ...
Possibly True by Spandau Ballet.
Song has been used in many films and TV shows since its release in 1983
Includes soft male voice in chorus
The structure that was described seems to match the cadence of the melody in the song's chorus (although, it's Hu's instead of Du's :-))
It's a study from Ferdinando Carulli, from opus 241 (Ecole de Guitare).
Don't know exactly where it appears in the original, but you might find it here, if you're willing to do some searching.
And, fwiw, I find it a lovely piece. Delicate, simple, easy, without any frills. Just plain pretty, beautiful. I'm not a big Carulli fan, but he had his moments.
If the lyric is "moving to the rhythm", rather than "moving to the river", I think the song is Deep Motion: 'Rain is falling down'
YT - Xtended mix
Has other lyrics which match the ones you mention : "...to fly without my wings....".
Thanks. I actually found the song. It's "Best Day of My Life" by American Authors.
The word "epiphany" occurs in the second stanza of the song (excluding the chorus), at around the 1:27 mark. The song was recorded in 2012 and released in 2013 as mentioned in Wikipedia.
Thank you for raising it here, I have personally never come across the whole phenomenon myself. Suffice to say that I've never heard the song before.
I haven't begun to read the entire Reddit information, so this is probably useless, but has anyone considered the possibility that it is a B side? Radio DJ's used to regularly play the wrong side of a record ...
