Asterisk*

Posted by on Jul 25, 2011 in Anime Music, Japanese Pop | 1 comment

Hubby and I both like the way Japanese people sings…none a care – so we say. They are so carefree when singing and because it’s the way of their life, I think they totally enjoy singing more than any other group of people in the world. Hello Karaoke!

I remember the hubby finding a non-functioning Ipod some years ago. Techie him fixed it, pimped it and downloaded songs, mostly anime opening and ending songs the kids and us are all familiar with. The Ipod is still here with us with the same songs save for some addition of Michael Jackson’s that the kids like.

So for today I’m sharing Bleach’s first opening song Asterisk* by Orange Range. Hubby used it as background music for the video he made of the Aninite, a Cosplay we attended last year.

Video and editing by hubby.

Drei Chinesen mit dem Kontrabass

Posted by on Jul 20, 2011 in Kids' songs | 0 comments

 

Whenever I see this photo I am reminded of a nonsensical German song the kids often sing…

The first stanza is sung in correct German:

Drei Chinesen mit dem Kontrabass
saßen auf der Straße und erzählten sich was.
Da kam die Polizei, ei was ist denn das?
Drei Chinesen mit dem Kontrabass.

In English, it goes like this:

Three Chinese with a double bass
Sat on the street and chatted something.
Along came the police: ‘Now what is this?‘
Three Chinese with a double bass.

My daughter plays this short piece in piano and the boys would sing along playfully. After this the lyrics are changed with all vowels to a, then to e, i, o and u which makes it really fun.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Theme Music

Tim Burton alright. You’d definitely have that “dark,” mysterious, uneasy feeling hearing this as you would watching his movies. The music score was written by Danny Elfman, often working closely with Burton.

One of the performers that I never got the chance to talk to is him…he used to have a dog around but this was taken 2 years ago and the dog is nowhere to be found…I normally would record a short video of the performance too but I think I was hurrying home the day I took this…

Tifa’s theme (Final Fantasy VII)

Posted by on Jul 10, 2011 in Movie Music, Music Monday | 2 comments

Aside from video games themselves, I like the themes that goes with the movies, the action sequence or simply the character introduction.

This is the piano version of Tifa’s theme. Tifa Lockhart is a member of the terrorist group AVALANCHE and owner of the 7th Heaven bar, Tifa is the childhood friend of Cloud Strife, the protagonist of Final Fantasy VII. Convincing him to join the group to keep him close and safe, she later assists him in saving the planet from the game’s villain, Sephiroth. She is hailed as a strong, independent and attractive female character as Lara Croft is in the world of video games.
