Dramatic 東方 Touhou Unplugged/Classic 154

0 Dramatic 東方 Touhou Unplugged/Classic 154Title: 風神少女
Artist: nazz-can
Circle: =NeutraL= (now Neutral2)
Original: 風神少女 (Wind God Girl)

I was listening to this song, and I figured that as far as orchestral Touhou goes, if you haven’t heard this, your life is incomplete, thus it’s one of those “must listen” of Touhou orchestral/classical and consequentially, a must have for Merlin.

I’m not kidding in the video title when I say “dramatic”, I mean “effing” dramatic. Nazz-can is one of those arranger who likes to go “all out” when he’s arranging a song, be it metal or orchestral, take that Remilia arrange (666), I’m not fooling around when I say that it’s one of the most epic things I heard. Nazz-can always arranges his orchestras as if it where the end of the world. Another trait that differentiates him from other orchestra Touhou arrangers, like Morrigan, taste or Aojiru. And a trait this guy and Papos have in common.
This song is no exception. As always, nazz-can does not hold back with his volume either, the intro will make your ears bleed if you have your volume set at max.
After the energetic intro the song “settles down” at 1:20 and the orchestra plays the ever popular main tune of Aya’s theme. The moment of rest quickly starts to subside at 2:20 and it starts picking up again with those dramatic trumpets. Finally at 3:25 everything starts to come back, like it was in the beginning. And so goes on, analyze it yourself if you want to.

The best part? It’s all synth and some keyboards probably. LOL ;__;

God knows what nazz-can is up to right now (I’ve seen some stuff of his in some other businesses), but, here’s to hoping he’ll make a grand return to the Touhou business.

Somehow though I think the arrange goes totally against the original Wind God Girl, I don’t really think Wind God Girl is such an epic song, it’s more… jazz then anything else I’d say, of the Latin kind probably. Recently I’ve been listening to some arranges here and there and got hooked to this rearrangement by ZUN from Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red. It has one of ZUN’s super MIDI piano solos.

Talking about dramatic songs, the previous upload was pretty dramatic too. Since the drama this song boosts is so extreme I challenge somebody to write a story on it, make it tragic.

Thanks for watching!

“It’s Not a Problem” – Mush Kessa Hay
مش قصة هاي
August 27, 2009

Video here

Lebanese dialect

You pass by me and then keep walking, as if Im nothing special
You care for me and then stop caring for me, as if Im nothing special
You have rank and a great reputation
You also have everything I have
But you left even though we agreed not to drift apart, and your excuses are of no use to me
You feel sorry for me and then stop feeling sorry like its nothing trivial, like Im nothing special
You walk out on me and then come back
Fine, its not a problem
Your love is selfish and you think of no one but yourself
Youre lonely and stubborn
What do you base your actions on?
You made a mistake and it annoys me
You befriended me and then stop being my friend
You left me and then came back
But its not a problem
This song is a small part of your mind (i.e. it means nothing), but your misery is great
And as time passes youll lose your fame, and even the world wont seem enough for you
Your days are getting dark, you have no one, and thats not a problem

مش قصة هاي
بتمرق علي إمرق ما بتمرق ما تمرق مش فارقة معاي مش فارقة معاي
بتعشق علي إعشق ما بتعشق ما تعشق مش فارقة معاي مش فارقة معاي
عندك مكانة و صيت كبير
في عندك عندي من التقدير شي كتير
لكن بتروح بترم مش مسموح و أعذارك ما بتنفع معاي
بتشفق علي إشفق ما بتشفق ما تشفق مش هينة علي مش فارقة معاي
بتعلق معاي إعلق ما بتعلق أه القصة مش هاي مش قصة هاي
حبك اناني بالتفكير و مفكر إنك إنتا وحيد و عنيد
على شو مسنود على شي مش موجود
عم تغلط و تزود علي
بتصدق معاي إصدق ما بتصدق ما تصدق قصة مش هاي مش قصة هاي
بتفرق معاي تفرق ما بتفرق ما تفرق قصة مش هاي مش قصة هاي
هيدي الغنية جزء صغير من عقلك و الشقا و التعتير شي كتير
و لو وقت يساع بتصير ما بتنذاع بتجرصنا العالم كفاي
تسودن مساك يلا ما تسودن خير من الله مش أنت مساي و مش قصة هاي
