風の音 [English Version]

風の音 [Japanese Version]

This song is a fairly old obsession of mine, but it I still enjoy listening to it years later. A couple of things I like to point out are the unique instrumentation in the song, and how both versions of the song were equally enjoyable. I can’t quite remember what the instruments were, but I do remember that most weren’t common orchestral instruments. I thought that gave the song a really folk like quality to it which, to me, is really neat. Now on the debate with the original vs the English version, I think this song pretty much proves that it is possible to have a decent English version. In this case, the English translation of the lyrics worked extremely well, which is sometimes unusual.
