Day 27: A Song That Breaks Your Heart

Not Pretty Enough, Kasey Chambers

For every girl who's been turned down by a guy. Or maybe it's just me. >.>

Found this one (don't remember how--Pandora, possibly) not too long after being told we were "just friends" by the first guy I *think* I liked (it's complicated). The same guy for whom I chose "I Hope You Dance" earlier. And so I just related to the lyrics a lot. :P

Day 28: A song by an artist with a voice that you love

 

Bokura no Eien [WEAVER]

 

The full name is ridiculously long so "Bokura no Eien" will do.

 

Anyway yes WEAVER has a great voice. It's gentle and special and he adds a certain quality to his singing that one can't quite find anywhere else. That, and it's rare to hear a piano in a rock band. I hope Weaver becomes really famous, because they deserve it.

I do love Frank's voice. Though I will include the other version of this song I love just as much.

Day Whatever: A Song By Some Guy Whose Voice You Love

http://youtu.be/-dWZcF58EgA

JAM Project are pretty much your go-to guys when you need J-Rock to set giant robots punching stuff to. Their individual members have quite the illustrious resume, from providing opening/ending songs from everything from Mazinger Z to Carnival Phantasm (no really) to... Being the voice of Ash Ketchum. No, really.

Masaaki Endoh (said guy who did the ED for Carnival Phantasm, and according to my Related Videos playlist, the latest Yu Gi Oh OP) stands out for me, because he doesn't only produce good stuff of his own, he also does MANLY SUPER ROBOT PUNCHING covers of other popular tracks. Especially entertaining if it's from a moe show like Hidamari Sketch. (no really he went there) Thus, it's highly appropriate that he covered the archetypical manly super robot punching show.

He also covered Power Rangers, once.

Day 29: A song that you remember from your childhood

I think I've covered all the songs I remember from my younger days. Oh, maybe I can try this one.

 

The second opening of the second season of Magic Knights Rayearth, or something.

 

To prove that this was from my childhood, I know neither the name nor the artiste of this song. XD However, there was a time when I was very young that I loved watching Magic Knights Rayearth. It was the only magical girl show that caught my attention. I know the art sucks by today's standards, and the dubbing were pretty meh too, and every one of the 3 girls had a romantic partner (I must admit the green girl's boyfriend was quite a heartthrob) but I just liked it immensely. I liked the magical weapons and the magical transformations and I thought the storyline was cool.

 

And hey, you have the original Mokona and Princess Emeraude in there. Obviously they were great enough to be seen again in Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle.

Day 29; Dem Nostalgia Feels

I didn't listen to much music as a wee lad, so what music I remember of my childhood would be the stuff my parents played in the car during long road trips to my grandparents' place in Malaysia. This one stood out, because the alternative is linking Boney M and I certainly don't feel like subjecting you all to that.

A song I remember from my childhood eh?

 

 

Is it weird that my favorite show from my 'childhood' was Tenchi Muyo? Because I didn't discover Shaman King until I was like 13 which sparked my real love for manga/anime.

I'm hesitant to put something up. I don't feel like I know what people expect of me in terms of a 'theme song'.

Oh, this is only what you think of yourself, dear. We don't expect people to put up certain songs, and I'm sure none of us has any right to choose the kind of theme song for you.

 

Though I must say I need some time to think of this myself too. I've no idea what song best represents me either, hmmm.

A song that describes me. I suppose I'll just stick with living in an old timey 1950's sitcom or commercial.

It's the last day of the month! I really wanted to insert an LM.C song now, because I haven't had a chance before, but none of their songs come close to describing me. It was tough, but I finally settled on this.

Tabidachi Graffiti [FLOW]

 

It's quite silly that I couldn't find the video on YouTube, but this is one of less popular songs by Flow that I really like. It's slower and it's a sort of graduation song, and yes indeed, I have graduated, grown up and matured.

 

The gentle blows of wind
Has become the sign of departure
Flapping my wings, i take flight to the blue sky
In order to grip this feelings.

Everyone have wings--though they are a bit unseen
Everyone have wings--you have them now with your power
Everyone have wings--though they are a bit unseen
Everyone have wings--you have them now with your power

Outside of classroom's window,
Paper airplanes flew to the blue sky of innocent day
As my body grew taller,
Pleasant things, worries and sad things came

Cowardice still attached in my heart
But there are things to protect, right ?

Take a hold of it
Link your heart to continue your unfinished dreams

Farewell, my precious days
I'm going to continue my life
"Goodbye" will give an important meaning
When i have changed from a boy into an adult.
The gentle blows of wind
Has become the sign of departure
Flapping my wings, i take flight to the blue sky
In order to grip this feelings.

Trying again to look cool and strong
Impatience is why it has become useless
I came with too much weaknesses
However, i was too late by realizing what's really important after losing it.
Thus, unaffected by the elapsing time, i lost sight of myself
Take a hold of it
Now i'm protecting my own reputation

Goodbye, my beloved one
You're going to continue your life
"Goodbye" will give a new start
When you've back as a girl who have changed into an adult
The gentle blows of wind
Has become the sign of departure
Flapping my wings, i take flight to the blue sky
In order to grip this feelings, and to move forward.

Future dreams are engraved from local train station to desks in classroom
They all looks somewhat radiant
I embrace all the day we've spent together
I've marked my start line in this town !

If you're not here before
I won't be here now
Since a departure is always for one-person only
Until now, thank you for everything

Farewell, my precious days
I'm going to continue my life
"Goodbye" will give an important meaning
When i have changed from a boy into an adult.
The gentle blows of wind
Has become the sign of departure
Flapping my wings, i take flight to the blue sky
In order to grip this feelings.

Turn around to see the blue sky
Now kick the ground towards the blue sky of future !

Everyone have wings--though they are a bit unseen
Everyone have wings--you have them now with your power

 

And with this, THANK YOU to everyone who has accompanied me in this 30-day song challenge. It's really made much more meaningful because of you. For those who haven't caught up to today, please do so at your own leisure. I hope this was an enjoyable activity!
