SotD: Yoko Kanno + Maaya Sakamoto - Gravity

Submitted by Druss on Sat, 2007-07-21 15:06

Today's song of the day, which has been on repeat for a few hours now is Yoko Kanno's Gravity, sung by Maaya Sakamoto (who is also a noted seiyū) from the soundtrack to the excellent anime, Wolf's Rain.

Yoko Kanno is one of my favourite artists / composers. Pretty much anything she touches is pure gold, and this song is platinum. Gravity serves as the background for the ending credits of each Wolf's Rain episode and fits in perfectly with the visuals which is a loop of a wolf running across the horizon. The simple piano chords overlapped by Maaya Sakamoto's accented vocals along with a few string accompaniments produce a very serene feel which always revives the same feelings I had when I was watching the anime.

Good stuff.
