Music Monday – Yukarin’s Picks

What I love about Anisongs is that there is so much variety as to the music’s style, instruments and genre which all perfectly capture the anime’s themes and characters. Here are the top two of my personal favourite (and under-appreciated) Anisongs. Enjoy!

“Fly Away” by TeddyLoid, from Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

There are lots of people who have watched or heard of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, but oddly enough, this song hardly appears for a few seconds throughout all the episodes. I love the techno-electronica vibes it brings and it really juices me up when I need that energy kick to write those final essays during my all-nighters. Also a fun fact: this song was written by TeddyLoid, who also made the internet-breaking songs “ME!ME!ME!” and “GIRL”, which you are probably familiar with.

“Sky’s the Limit” by Shihoko Hirata; Lotus Juice, from Persona 4

This is one of my favourite chillax songs. It’s got a catchy beat, smooth jazz-style piano riff and an awesome female rapper. Personally I really enjoy all the music from the Persona series, but the mellow, simplistic edge to this piece makes it stand out a lot for me.

Well that’s it folks, hope you liked it!
