Tsuki no Akari
This song is absolutely beautiful. I love the melancholic and almost exhausted feeling this song has. The vocals, done by Ida Emi, really capture that. It’s not powerful, yet not weak either. The simple piano melody definitely draws a picture of the night sky. It kind of reminds me of Chopin’s Nocturnes actaully. A sad lullaby maybe. Apparently this song made it into textbooks even, so I’m obviously not the only one who thinks it is pure art.
This song was originally called the Theme of Love but was then redone for the release of Final Fantasy IV on the DS, which by the way is a great game. Of course when listening to the recordings of songs with this title, it becomes more turbulent and surging. Much less mellow and stagnant.
Oh and while writting up this post, I found the longer version. Yata!

If you are new here, please comment unless its not in good taste.
Anyway, I’ll just leave this…
one by one, the light bulbs turn off.
And when the flame finally flickers out it was lonely.

Christmas Song Selection
Vanilla Mood is a Japanese female jazz group. You can find a lot of their videos on Youtube. I really enjoy some of their jazzed up versions of Disney songs, and popular songs I know. Most of the song gives off a very light feeling, and is nice to listen to when under a heavy workload.
