Fuuma Monou - "Here I Dreamt I was an Architect" by The Decemberists
Welcome to the third annual "Hyu's Music of.. *insert year here*". As it draws close to the end of the year, I take time to reflect on those songs that just got stuck in my head. The ones that I found myself humming, singing or writing fics to. These songs were generally on repeat for god knows how long for some reason or another. 2008 is upon us and it's now time to say goodbye to those songs that will live forever in my heart and had pretty much shaped me those past twelve months. All of these songs are -excellent- and I strongly recommend them to anyone who would care to give them a listen.
Last year (2006) there was alot of really spazzy happy music, this year I had an even mixture of music that was both sad and happy which is a good balancing influence, and yes it was a good year and I think that I've changed alot over the course of this year (hopefully for the better). Now on to the music. I won't describe -why- I like them, I'll just illustrate my favorite lyrics from the songs *when applicable*. There are some japanese songs on there, but this year, I didn't have an insane ammount of them like I did last year. (and this time they are in order, the songs. Starting from the first of January to December 2007)
And let's start the show.
*By the way, they are all downloadable. So yoink the music as you see fit.
