Thanks to mana-sama ( >///> ) I fell in love with Kanon Wakeshima’s singles… The baroque fusion and gothic pop theme is totally new to me. She’s a learns to play the cello since the age of 3 (GILER), and when she’s sixteen she combines her cello skills with her singing. Awesome isn’t it? What’s more awesome is that she’s produced by Mana (of Malice Mizer)! Her ‘Still Doll’ single is used as the Ending theme for Vampire Knight anime adaptation.
Lurking in youtube for more of Wakeshima, I accidentally found this… male version of ‘Still Doll’. Weird, I thought somebody made a cover…but it turns out this youtube users lowered the pitch of the original song…and it turned out to be really sexy! ❤
YES! I fell in love with that smooth..and soft masculine voice >O< *meltz*
Kinda reminds me of Nobutoshi Canna’s voice <3333 (Hiroki from Junjo Romantica). I want..my name to be called with that kind of voice…. *blushes*
Anyways…If you’re interested…Here’s the original XD; Still Doll Music Video
OverClocked Remix is a store of various video game soundtrack remixes. I often lurk around there to find rearranged tracks and medleys of my favourite game (more particularly my favourite tracks). There are too many to list down though. At first I thought the remixes will sound more like those techno/dance remix like how the popular songs turn into…often heard in the radio. Apparently, not all are like that. Remixers took the effort to “re-record” the soundtracks using the instruments of their desire :3
And even adding lyrics!!
Here’s one of my faves (Remixer: Jovette Rivera)
I got the beat to lay the funk down,
Come on step inside a my town,
Hold your breath and don’t think
There’s a new world ready to lay at your feet.
If I gotta give some point
To the new man trying to run on my joint,
Grab some traction, run and hide,
Betcha catch you now
Gonna meet you on the dark side.
You are the one keeping me
From doing what I
Do but now I see you too
So I’ll give it back to you
You can’t believe everything you hear
And you cannot see everything that’s near
But if I believe you’re gone
Then you’ll disappear
Still you reappear
I’m at the point of no break
Gimme a dime and I’ll make
A million shine but it’s gonna take time
There ain’t no time to be fake
Gimme an inch and I’ll take
A mile long high better reach up to the sky.
Things steadily heavily
Being pushed on top of me
So close that I can hear you breathe.
Each and every day’s the same
Life has left you nothing new
Turn around and you
Will see what has become of you.
Your visions of
Immortality or love
Left you at the crossroads of
What to choose.
FF7 fans, recognize the song? The intro wasn’t that awesome. Kinda reminds you of aliens… But it gets better from 0.36 ….so…FF7 fans, do you recognize the song? :3
Sorry I couldn’t find a better vid. A Cid and Vincent AMV (not CidxVincent, mind you :3 ). The sound quality in this vid doesn’t do justice to the remix, so I suggest you to stream it here and you may download it if you wish. The vocals are just great. ❤ And the “Bridge” is definitely EPIC. I had this tune in my head for days after listening to this. Sometimes it just crossed my mind and makes me feel like i just HAD to relisten to it.
I wish I could master various musical instruments. But I guess my talent goes to drawing and writing. well, we’ve got fanartists, fanfic writers… AMV makers… perhaps it is time to give way for musically oriented fans for a change :3.
More to come~
