Melodies of Life [OST]

It's late, 4:11 am as of this writing (a bit later as of posting).
I'm at work, it's the last stretch before the nights end and it's time to go home.
But I just can't focus on work ... I'm lost in the feelings created by the song Melodies of Life, from Final Fantasy IX.

It's a beautifully composed song, that's equally beautifully vocalized, both in Japanese and English.

While there are things about Final Fantasy IX that really, -really- haven't aged well...
The OST is certainly not one of those things.
It is just as feeling invoking late this year of 2014, as it was when the game was new, early 2001 (European release).

And Melodies of Life isn't the only song from that game that is full of feelings.
Almost all songs invoke feelings and memories (especially for me, since I've poured well over 500 hours (over 20 days) into the game).

But, enough of my ramblings, and on to the song!

I'm leaving you with both versions of the vocals:


Listen to both, it's worth the 12 min of your life that it'll take.

Over and out~
