Feathery Wings

Posted by shanoah on October 6, 2008

Oh, I had a few other themes in that last post that could have been followed; Rammstein, Voltaire, and madness, to name three.

But Reef was pretty upbeat, and that’s all I was really aiming for.

However, I just found a really good Voltaire AMV, so that, naturally, is what I’m going to play. It was in the “Reccommended for me” section. As was a really sacchrine romantic award-winning AMV, but we’ll skip that:

Feathery Wings – Voltaire

I would already be inclined to like this just for the song. Really pretty, touching vocals and music on it.

I’m trying to earn a set of feathery wings
i wish i could protect you here
oh, please don’t cry
now smile as you’re standing
at the edge of your life
your troubles are over
mine are just beginning
I’m trying to earn a set of feathery wings
to take me away from here
its me you leave behind

But it blends so well thematically with the clips from Haibane Renmei, which was a gorgeous anime graphically, and one I really liked.

All and all this AMV was just so full of win that I couldn’t help but post it…
