- Title: Urusei Yatsura - Voices
- Premiered: not yet
- Macross Plus Voices (English)
- Yoko Kano Voices (English)
The main reason I picked "Voices" from Macross Plus by Yoko Kano to use in a Urusei Yatsura video was because I thought the music went well with the one scene in the fifth movie where Lum is traveling under the water and all. Still, it works better most of the time than not, as Beautiful Dreamer's surreal style works well with the eerie sound of the song and, again, the final lyrics ("my traveler returned") go well with the end of the fifth movie, but, as I said with my other Urusei Yatsura video, that scene is so brilliant it's amazing with anything you put it to.
Just in case you're wondering, here are the lyrics:
The first word in my dreams
I could clearly see
Planet Eden high beyond the skies
Beautiful and sad
is this story I`ll tell
of the winged travellers eager
`twas one day
the wind guided him where to go
like an eagle high above he flew
Waving from down below
he flew out of sight
into the mystical darkness
Neither a smile nor a cry
I gave when he left
feeling my spleen decline
one day we`d fly over
back to the places we once shared
Where vessels glide
in silky waves and of gold
deep in the gulf such planet lies
Surrounded by this universe
of love and hate
confusion breaks through and dwells.
Cast a spell, from the old magic book.
Set a path.
In the black magic box, something strange will happen, it
will take you so far.
So try...We can fly, we have wings, we can touch floating
Call me from so far through the wind in the light.
Someone came from the dark over from the stars.
Protecting my heart from crying.
Taken back by surprise my traveller returned.
What went wrong? Why did he change?
Anyway, not my best and not my favorite, but it does have some very good, eerie parts in it. I hope you enjoy!
