Kirmizi composed by Tugkan, Piano Arrangement by Shenna Shepard. Featured in Turkish Series "Erkenci Kus."
I totally fell in love with this beautiful and haunting tune by Turkish artist Tugkan when I was watching the Turkish Romantic Comedy series called, "Erkenci Kus," (Early Bird). The series, which stars Can Yaman and Demet Ozdemir, is certainly worth a watch as the couple has tremendous romantic chemistry and even fell in love in real life while filming this series. This tune plays a couple of times in the series, but most struck me when it was playing in the background during a very romantic scene in which he expresses very how he has fallen in love with her. Here is the beautiful original of this tune with vocals by Tugkan and played on guitar (from YouTube):
Here is a 7 minute clip from the series from YouTube (with English subtitles) that shows the build up to the scene and the music which comes in at 3 minutes and 40 seconds into the clip. When you press on it, due to copyright issues, it will say "video unavailable." However, if you click on "Watch on YouTube" and it will direct you there where you can watch it:
And here is my piano arrangement of the song (also posted on YouTube):
