Three more days until my trip! I am so excited for it, and thus my excitement affected my choice for this month’s Symphonic Selections. A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon a gospel version of “Zankoku na Tenshi no Thesis”, the opening song for Neon Genesis Evangelion, a popular anime from the 1990s. This made me think of its ending song, “Fly Me to the Moon”. I will be flying soon, albeit not to the Moon, and I kept singing this song whenever I had a free moment. Therefore, I went on a hunt for an instrumental version of this song.
I discovered this one from the Piano de Bossa album by Febian Reza Pane. Jazz is one of my favourite genres, and I’ve been really digging the bossa nova style lately, so this version really charmed me. This is a lovely piano piece with the accompanying bass and drums. This piece is relaxing, and I can picture myself in my hotel lounge in the evening, enjoying a glass of wine after a long day of touring. I wished I were already there!
Anyway, hope you all enjoy this piece. If you want to keep up with me on my travels, I’ll be tweeting on my Twitter. If you’re already friends with me on Facebook, I’ll also post there a bit. I bought a power bank just for my phone and rented a pocket wi-fi in Japan, so I’ll be properly connected. Keep on blogging, everyone, and I’ll be back!
