[ 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.

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 [ 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. ^^
