- Jimmy Somerville Amnesia
There is a program called 'Pandora's Box'. You put in an artist you like and it tries to play music that is similar. Using this program I stumbled across the song 'Amnesia' by Jimmy Somerville. I fell in love with the song and singer's voice at once. I would pause in my work day whenever it came up on my 'pandora's box'. I bought the cd and have since made 4 videos to songs on his album. But the song 'Amnesia' was the first, the one I had to make. It really seemed to fit the Utena Movie very well and the feel was right as well.
For those who don't know the Utena movie, Akio (Anthy's brother) has been drugging his sister (Anthy), so he can sleep with her. He makes her 'forget' what happens, and where the whole 'Amnesia' thing comes from. Utena meanwhile is wanting to forget her own pain (but I don't really get into that in the video). Utena helps Anthy to remember who she is, to wake her up from her drugged sleep of 'Amnesia'.
Please Note: The singer is MALE. Yes that's a male singing in the most beautiful falsetto voice I have ever heard.
My favorite part of the video is the line of 'We disconnect...from all reality' as you are seen the Utena/Car. Because in the Utena Movie, things make sense until...Utena turns into a car. You can't get more 'disconnected from reality' then that.
