Music, music and heart strings
As a one of those rabid Apple fans, I have itunes installed and haven't bought an actual cd for years. Now my only complaint with itunes is that their jrock music is really thin on the ground. They also don't have a large catalog of anime music either. Y'all know I'm a huge fan of jrock (japanese rock), so when I saw that itunes was selling the newest Miyavi cd it was a very very good day indeed! I quickly hit the buy button, and for the most part love love love the album. There are a few of extremely slow songs that I haven't managed to make it all the way through yet. What surprised me is how many of his songs have English words in them. And my favorite song is only in English. I know he loves touring in the States, so he might be trying to get a larger fan base here. I'm hoping the next time he comes here that I can see him.
So, here is my favorite song. I picked the video so you can make out what he's saying. But I don't know why the poster didn't pick a more recent pic of him....shrugs shoulders.
If you are looking for something different to listen to, are past tired of the same cycle of songs that the radio plays in tight rotation, pop on over and visit my good blogger friend Lightning Baltimore. He plays stuff that never ever came close to Billboard must less the top 40. Come with an open mind, and to make things easier for you, check out his tags at the bottom of each post. He is the KING of tagging. But hey! be brave and listen to stuff outside of your comfort zone. He does love comments, even the snarky ones. Because half of my comments are way snarky.
If you are unfamiliar with the rose ceremony, its a way for the seniors to show their appreciation to the people that have helped shape their lives. That helped them in some way ease their way through school. That they love. And TH and I kinda fill all of those blanks for her.
