- Nina Simone Feeling Good
I thought this song was particularly well fitted to Final Fantasy X.
"It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life for me."
The application of this phrase to FFX threefold:
1. When Tidus first arrives in Spira. He starts a whole new life as a guardian even though he knows so very little about the new world he's been brought into. He has no restraints or responsibilities, and chooses the path of a guardian purely because he wants to.
2. When Yuna becomes a summoner. It's the start of a new journey for her - the start of her life as a summoner. Even though she may not he happy all the time, she is certainly happier to have Tidus along with her.
3. The defeat of Sin. Need I say more? All of Spira are now free from living a life in fear of Sin. They can start to build their homes and lives anew, and it's all thanks to the summoner.
I also thought that some of the lyrics applied to various specific scenes in the game, especially when Yuna performs a sending in Kilika. It seems to introduce the seriousness of the Summoners task, and shows the extent to which the threat of Sin reaches.
I really enjoyed making this video. Despite all of what's written above, I also happen to love Jazz and this song is absolutely brilliant to listen to.
