[livejournal.com profile] sheron pointed out that the Music Library meme below would be even cooler if one shared the songs in question. So, for a limited time (one week to be exact) and for a limited number of downloads, here are the tracks I mentioned! Please, if you like the songs enough, consider (when possible!) buying the official recording from which I've taken them. I mean this post as a promotion of the artists' work.



A Circle is Cast--Libana
Libana is a longstanding vocal ensemble devoted to women's music.

Yuu from Hikaru no Go Original Soundtrack 1
I believe I bought this from either Right Stuf International or Anime Castle.

Eyecatch from Descendants of Darkness/Yami no Matsuei Original Soundtrack: Also an RSI or Anime Castle purchase.

Drop of Water/Traditional Song--Dana Lyons
Dana Lyons is a singer-songwriter and hardy environmental activist whom I first heard perform when I was in college (we share an alma mater, but he was five years ahead of me). See also his site Cows with Guns.

Waterloo--ABBA
I've had the source album (ABBA Gold) on tape since 1994--actually bought it during a visit to Sweden!--but recently acquired it on CD as well, probably from a brick-and-mortar store. I first heard their music around age nine when I was living in Tonga with my parents--I can still remember hearing the strains of "Super Trouper" wafting from the little store kitty-corner from our house. ^^

A Thousand Miles--Vanessa Carlton
Got it at Borders. First really got to know the song through an anime music video focused on the character Anzu Mazaki/Téa Gardner of Yu-Gi-Oh! It's surprisingly appropriate to her character and to her relationship with Yami no Yuugi.

If I Were a Rich Man from Fiddler on the Roof--got the CD at some music store or other. First saw the movie in the South Pacific; it left a profound impression on me.

From Me to You--Beatles. Tower Records.

EYES (TV-Size) from Yu-Gi-Oh! Sound Duel 4. RSI or Anime Castle, I *think*.

Yesterday--Beatles, from same album as "From Me to You."

Confrontation from Descendants of Darkness/Yami no Matsuei Original Soundtrack.

Deja Blue from Into the Sky: Vision of Escaflowne Original Soundtrack. This one I got from Joy's Japanimation. I think it may be the first anime soundtrack I ever purchased!

"Eternal Flame--The Bangles I got from Tower Records on a Love Songs of the 80s compilation CD.

Family--Dar Williams. Another I-forget-which-store purchase. I first heard this song in the company of a beloved friend and one-time roommate of mine who died at age twenty-five, nearly six years ago. Forevermore, it's one of the songs I associate with her; another is "Sing, O Barren One" as performed by Sweet Honey in the Rock.




And, while I'm at it, here's another music-sharing meme (got this one from [livejournal.com profile] tuuli_chan):

Do you trust my taste in music? Pick around three numbers from 1 to 623 and I'll find the corresponding song in my playlist. I'll upload it for you to grab. When you've gotten a song from me, go post this meme in your own journal, replace the number with the number of songs YOU have so I can grab a random song from you.

P.S. Thanks for the ones you sent me, Tuuli! Liked 'em all. ^^

Since I already uploaded "A Circle Is Cast" (see above), I instead present you with the first track *after* that one: A Face of Glass (http://s52.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0ZBKNI1QMEYYZ0AXY57R58L0R2) from the Descendants of Darkness soundtrack. ;-)

Well... 5, 55, 555. ^^

And thank you for uploading Waterloo. ^^ I've been missing my Abba CD's... for some reason I left them home when I came here. Didn't even copy some songs to my laptop. No idea what I was thinking. :/

Yay ABBA! ^^

Sadly, 5, 55, and 555 are not ABBA songs, but I still like 'em!

#5: A Locked Heart (http://s54.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=2LR7UEZ3QXRDT2CADJ6OTFJQKN) from the Descendants of Darkness/Yami no Matsuei soundtrack. (One of those very atmospheric instrumental interludes!)

#55: Ay, Amor (http://s55.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0B07784S487WL0BTX5DOK5VRHH) by Myriam Hernández from her album Todo lo mío. Got to know this song from its music video when I was studying in Latin America in college.

#555: Todo cambia (http://s54.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3SY9EJC6IXCLQ2GDV5TIU44GKI) as rendered by Mercedes Sosa on 30 Años. I've been listening to MS's music since college, too, but got to know this particular song when someone performed it at a concert I attended.

Hiya! I grabbed it greedily as soon as I saw it, but neglected to write and thank you for't until now. It was, however, greatly appreciated! ::hugs::

(I love how Ono pays serious attention! :-D But poor Tachibana always comes out looking like the bad guy...)
