Day 16

A Song You Used to Love but Now You Hate

The first time I heard this song, during Final Fantasy VIII, I was like “OMG THIS IS AMAZING ZOOOOOMMMMMMMGGGG”

Then I played the game a second time, and well… despite how really pretty the music is, the lyrics are dull and too literal for my taste, and I don’t like Faye Wong’s voice. And I also don’t like the game.

Day 10
A Song That Makes You Fall Asleep

FF4 Piano Collection – Melody of Lute

Final Fantasy 4 Celtic Moon 08 Melody Of Lute

The Celtic Moon version is my favorite.

I don’t think much needs to be said for this song. I love it. I think it’s one of the prettiest songs from the Final Fantasy series, it’s from my favorite game in the series, and is just… lovely. I could listen to this looping for hours, except I’ll fall asleep during it.
Celtic Moon is one of my favorite albums to put on and fall asleep to. It’s atmospheric, moody, and evocative. I close my eyes and envision ballets, and lyrics, and stories set to these pieces. Some are sadder than others, some are bouncy and wonderful. This one I like for being beautiful and happy and a bit of a lullaby, and also a bit melancholy (for the record the first time this song is heard in the game, it is played by Edward, a bard, and a prince, for his girlfriend Anna, who died saving him, and I think the lullaby quality is a perfect tone for a song that’s both a song for saying “goodbye”, and a song saying “I love you”)

Yes, I am a geek. And chances are things are only going to get geekier here on out.
