Ryuichi Sakamoto - Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrence

Genre: Classical


Ryuichi Sakamoto's song is truly one of the classics that everyone must hear. I mean even if you hate classical music you can't possibly dislike this, it's one of those songs you listen to and just want to fall asleep and dream, like any Christmas evenings when the magic was still there. I really hope you guys enjoy this song and perhaps have a new perspective for classical music too :)

I can't stress enough about how awesome classical music is. It's probably one of the only genres of music that still requires "active" listening at all times since the sounds you hear are usually strung together differently every time. It really grinds my gears when big movie corporations take a perfectly nice classical piece and insert it into something completely messed up like DeBussy's Claire de Lune in Twilight. I mean the song did not strengthen that particular scene in anyway and was literally wasted. RAAAAAAAAAGEEEEEE. But anyway, if you're interested some of Sakamoto's works, I highly recommend The Last Emperor, by far the most epic Asian classical music ever!

  1. Good point made, I like classical music as well, and this particular song reminds me very much of the Chrono Trigger OST. If you want to see some epic orchestra, listen to any by Nobueo Eumatsu (not sure if I spelled that right...)

    Good stuff, keep em coming!
