Music Monday – There’s Music Everywhere

If you’ve been following any of my past posts, you might have noted that I’m into tracks that seem particularly uplifting or energetic, so it makes sense that today is really no different. In a way, these speaks passion to me in the way I am most familiar with, which is something I can understand and have a deep respect for. That isn’t to say that slower, more intense songs are less passionate, just that they show it in different ways.

I didn’t anticipate that the song which I really wanted to share today would be so difficult to find, so ultimately I went with an alternative (some of you may have seen this coming…)

Sakamichi no Melody is the OP to Sakamichi no Apollon (Kids on the Slope) and I particularly like it for the mix of instruments (such as the trumpet), all of which blended perfectly with the animation, in a way showing their bonds with each other through music, nomatter how different they are. Even though we can’t all sing or play an instrument or compose a song, we can always enjoy music in some form or another, and music has the power to change people.

(Full version)

The song I wanted to share is the other song from the Sakamichi no Apollon OP Single – Play Ball, which I could only find as a video on DailyMotion. Have a listen if you would like to. It has good energy and I would go so far as to say I like Play Ball more than Sakamichi no Melody.
