Hiroshi Yamaguchi: Sei-an City (Aristocratic Quarter)

I need to do this less often when I’m about to go to sleep. I tried to go with feel as I was trying to get across something that would be representative of the song’s title, but I’m not sure … Continue reading

Nobuo Uematsu: Trail of Blood

VIQ: Vestige

One listen for this one. Had to restart early as I was distracted and technically I finished the writing after another song started. Such is the way of things sometimes. I tried to talk less about what the music was … Continue reading

Rei Kondoh: The Sun Rises

With this I was trying to articulate the feelings and imagery more than how the song progressed. Despite familiarity with the song it took two listens and I’m not sure as to how successful I was. Rei Kondoh’s (近藤 嶺) … Continue reading

Blind Idiot God: Thunderhead

This was written over one listen. I’m kind of surprised that I got this much out of it as “Thunderhead” moves quickly and is quite relentless. Maybe it was due to familiarity with the song from listening to it a … Continue reading

Five-Hundred Word Challenge 671: Some Words on Some Songs

Spindly limbs and a low roar leads to some push and a slight bit of aggression, but of course a gentle voice will carry it all back down and somewhere closer to a world of calm familiarity. Long the sticks … Continue reading
