Tunes for Tuesday

May 31, 2011, by , posted in Features

I was surprised to discover that the post I made last week was appreciated by a few individuals. I feel confident enough to post a follow up this week with music in a similar vein.

The music last week was generally of a more subdued variety, so I thought I would go to the other end of the spectrum. This is the opening of Michiko to Hatchin, a series that follows the travels of a prison escapee and a young girl on a vespa through a fictional country inspired by Latin America in search of a man. Shinichiro Watanabe, known for directing Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, was involved in the music composition. The OP itself was performed by Soil & “Pimp” Sessions. Please do not let the name dissuade you, as they have produced several albums of fantastic music.

The following track is from the soundtrack of a series I enjoyed watching many seasons ago, Ristorante Paradiso. It is a romance series that revolves around a young woman and the stories of moe old men who make up the staff of a restaurant in Rome. This is a fair representation of the entire album, and at any rate, I often listen to this when I cook.
