Since I’m pretty bogged down by loads of things happening in real life, I thought it’s a good idea to write a fun post. I haven’t been doing that for a long time. This time around, I’ll be listing down 5 unforgettable tunes from the anime I saw. Tunes can be a song, part of a song, anything that contributes a melody. That said, this isn’t a post about the unforgettable OP or ED songs, although some of them are.
I chose to say unforgettable because I don’t actually like all of them. You know, sometimes one can’t seem to forget things that bug them. It’s the kind of tune that when people mention about it, I can immediately recall without any problem.
1. Motteke! Sailor Fuku! (Lucky Star)
I remember burst out laughing when I first heard this track. It’s undeniably upbeat, cheerful. I was still very new to anime back then, and I swear I’ve never heard music like this.
2. Dango Daikazoku (Clannad)
Clannad might be one of the saddest shows I’ve ever watched, but it also has one of the sweetest song I’ve ever heard.
3. Fooling Mode (Naruto)
The 101th episode of hit anime series Naruto is a filler. I can still remember what it’s about – Naruto and friends trying to uncover Kakashi and reveals his face. It was a hilarious episode. As I said, it’s a filler; however, it had such a catchy tune and funny scenes that it becomes an episode to remember by many Naruto anime fans. This tune never failed to make people laugh with the wacky sounds. Believe me, I’ve tested it on several people already.
4. Puru Puru Pururin (Welcome to the NHK)
During the earlier episodes in Welcome to the NHK, this song was often heard. It’s not like I like the song, but one can’t argue that it’s hard to get the song out of his/her head. Just like however much Satou hated the song, he actually memorized the lyrics! I admit, it is pretty catchy.
5. A Little Pain (NANA)
I’m putting my most unforgettable song to last. That scene was unforgettable. This was the first time I saw an “anime concert”, so to speak. It’s like I can understand why the characters cry listening to the song. It is a beautiful song, and Olivia Lufkin had her way of drawing the emotions out. To be honest, this is the song that prompted me to take Japanese music seriously. I’m guilty of skipping OPs and EDs before even sampling them whenever I start a new anime. But this. A Little Pain. Changed that. How can it be not unforgettable? >.<
That’s all. Any unforgettable tunes you have in mind? I’ll make it easy for you, what’s the first tune that comes to your mind when I read this post. Do share!
