    They are a pretty good combination! And yes, soothing is a decent description of the tune there.

    Wow, this is really nice. I wasn't really expecting something from Kid Icarus: Uprising and I tried to recall a song with strings involved, but I couldn't. I remember listening to this one on Youtube at some point and I fell in love with it, so this brought back memories of listening to it before. Great selection, great blog as always.
    It's maybe not the most memorable tune from the game (heck yeah Dark Pit theme), but it's still quite nice. Glad you liked the first tune proposed!

    Each to their own with the style! And it is a good song moreso for its context, I'd wager. It seems like it'd do well when you're trying to come up with another move or whatnot, but without much tension given it plays when you're winning by a good amount.

    I can certainly give that a go! VG music featuring string instruments, should be interesting. =)

    Maybe - sometimes it's hard to shake a particular rendition of a song in favour of another.

    The Jam Project cover is pretty sweet. No pun intended.

    I quite enjoy how they frolic in the snow... Yes...

    The song is pretty zazzy, for lack of a better word.

    A Music Blog (#21: It knows too much)

    I kind of like how unpredictable this song is. Yet it still has a good melody. Nice find.

    Also, ignore how far behind I am on your blog. I'm subscribed, but it never tells me when you update it oddly. =P

    Anyways, both great songs there! The hairstyle back then, haha.
    Same area of the leg at any rate, I suppose!

    I bet their hairstyles were also musically gifted.

    But there's a double meaning (or triple?). Achilles in the tale is undone by being stabbed in the leg/heel, perhaps in what is currently called the Achilles tendon (which on that note is a horrible thing to break). Robert Plant, the singer, had prior to the song broken his ankle - the song was apparently thought to be initially called The Wheelchair song. I think I prefer this title better.
