When I first saw it in theater, I had no idea how brilliant Wolf Children was going to be. It’s a little quirky, but is an entirely wholesome story about wanting to protect your family and loving them even when they aren’t right next to you.
Okaasan no Uta (or Mother’s Song on the soundtrack) is a lullaby sung by a young mother to her small child as she wishes for them to be happy and to remember that she will always love them.
It is one of the sweetest songs I’ve ever listened to and reading the translated lyrics only makes it more so… if ever I have children, this would be one of the lullabies I sing them. ❤
Probably one of the best pieces of music in the entire trilogy of games, Suicide Mission gets your heart pumping from the get go!
This is one of the most stressful parts of the entire trilogy, as you’re racing the clock in order to keep your crew alive against overwhelming odds in the Collector Base. I love this song to absolute pieces, because it brings me right back to the game each time I hear it.
This particular arrangement is from the Chinese drama, The Untamed, about two young men who are “cultivators” or magic users charged with the protection of their communities from the forces of evil. Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji are unlikely friends, but together solve mysteries that eventually unveil a much larger plot to subdue all cultivators and control the world!
This song is played many times throughout the series and is so perfect for these two characters. Lan Wangji playing the guqin (a traditional, seven stringed Chinese instrument) with Wei Wuxian accompanying on a Chinese flute.
Have a listen and, if you like this song, maybe check out the show? It is currently available on Netflix and Rakuten Viki, which is where I watched it because I enjoy watching Asian dramas, lol.
