Two listens for this one.
Once more just trying to capture the song. Don’t think I did the best job. I think this would’ve worked better had I allowed more listens and not rushed, but that’s not the aim here.
Hitoshi Sakimoto’s (崎元 仁) “Kind Friends” (“やさしい友だち”) is from Breath of Fire V: Dragon Quarter‘s soundtrack, Breath Of Fire V – Dragon Quarter: Original Soundtrack. The soundtrack was also released as part of Breath of Fire Original Soundtrack Special Box a soundtrack collection of the soundtracks for Breath of Fire I through to V.
I hope you enjoy.
Strings rhythmically pulse, a quick fluttering of woodwind and more strings come in, crest and descend. Soon muted horn follows and a sadness comes through, as does a resolve to rise and overcome.
It all loops back and once that fluttering returns, and upon the drift a heaviness comes forward, and perhaps a remembering of a sense of innocence. Maybe thoughts turn inward, and there’s reflection. There’s a firmness in the belief that the right thing was done, and there are no regrets, and it all fades out as the song ends.
