Morning Cup o’ Music
I’m in one of those weird videogame music moods this week. I just enjoy being “that guy” sometimes and this is a genre where I can do so easily.
Today’s song is from the excellent action RPG, Legend of Mana, that was released on the original PlayStation way back in the early days of the 2000s and was composed by Yoko Shimomura (Parasite Eve, Super Mario RPG, Kingdom Hearts, etc).
The actual vocal performance of “Song of Mana” was performed by Swedish vocalist Annika Ljungberg of Rednex fame. You might recall them, they had that one song “Cotton-eyed Joe” that was moderately popular here in the US at one point. I’ve included a link to that video below if you’re so inclined to take that trip down memory lane with me.
