I don't know if it's just a matter of me getting older, and therefore getting more nostalgic and stuff but there are some songs that have been making me all "ah, youth!" recently! XD
Hearing any Weiss Kreuz songs take me back to being in sixth form, when anime was pretty much my only fandom. Even then, the anime I watched back then was pretty limited.
Hearing anything from the Escaflowne soundtrack takes me back to the summer just before I started sixth form. I loved that show so much at the time (still do!), I was proper obsessed with it! XD I also wanted to marry Van Fanel. Which wasn't too bad, seeing as I was also about 16 at the time. Now it'd be creepy! Hahahaa. Man, I'm old.
There are certain ones that make me kinda weepy now too. I loved Arashi's Aozora Pedal before I watched the Honey & Clover and movie, but now it makes me sad and kinda...well, kinda feel like Takemoto. He is my kindered anime spirit after all. I KNOW YOUR PAIN, TAKEMOTO! *gets teary* Poor guy. It didn't help that he was played by the adorable Sakurai Sho either!
Then of course, FMA. I watched it on TV weekly, so it pretty much played throughout my final year of university. Especially since I haven't watched it since then, hearing any of the theme songs makes me all nostalgic. I MISS MY DAYS OFF! Melissa's still a kick-ass song though. Honey & Clover songs (both OST and the songs by Spitz and Suga Shikao) also remind me of my final term in the final year of uni. Especially since Takemoto's graduation coincided with mine. Maybe I need to take a bike trip to the end of Britain so I can find myself and grow as a person.
HAHAHA! I can't even ride a bike! That'd be tragically funny!
Hana Yori Dango music reminds me of the completely swept away feeling I had watching this beatiful, awkward and adorable romance unfold before my eyes. There are some pieces of music from the OST that will literally make me sigh and go "Ahh, Hanazawa Rui. If only you were real." Also with Doumyouji too. They're both awesome. Ah, I've lost track of what I was saying! XD Yes, HYD's music is also awesome.
Watching Long Vacation had a weird nostalgic feeling for me. It was the first time I had watched it, but because of the style of the music, and especially because of the styles everyone had in the show, it made me remember the 90s. Although, give it a year and I'll be all "This music reminds me of the solidification of my appreciation for KimuTaku's hotness, and the first summer I worked all the way through!"
That was weird, wasn't it?! I don't usually get all blabbery like that on the LJ. Apologies! It won't happen again! It was all triggered off by SuneoHair's Waltz. I love that song.
In more normal gabenut
like news, I love Kanjani8. I love em cos they're loud, witty and fun. I like loudness! :D Also, their song Obachan Rock
has to be the catchiest song I've hearing since Morning Musume's Love Machine
Okay, I'm off to eat now!
