Music Monday: Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind


Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Music Monday! Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately!  If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up below.

Rules:

Every Monday share one or two of songs you've been enjoying lately.  It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post's url.


Since this is the last week of Sci-Fi Month, which is hosted by Rinn Reads and Over the Effing Rainbow, I'm spotlighting three of my favorite tracks from one of my favorite Studio Ghibli movie soundtrack's, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984).  While I like the movie itself quite a bit, it isn't quite my favorite Miyazaki film, but the soundtrack is one of the best.  Below I have included the tracks for the Opening, To A Far Away Land, and Nausicaä's Glider.  Enjoy!

  4. I adore Miyazaki and everything Studio Ghibli! Kiki's Delivery Service and Castle in the Sky were my favorite movies when I was growing up. I just watched Nausicca again this summer and felt like it was the first time I really understood it. As a little girl I was always so confused! What your favorite one?
