Happy Monday everyone!  This week I'm sharing some of my favorite tracks/ scenes from the movie Whisper of the Heart (1995).  I watched the movie in the original Japanese a little while ago and absolutely fell in love with it.  I'll admit that I was surprised how big of a role the song Country Roads plays in it.  Check out the opening sequence featuring the Olivia Newton-John cover of the song, a really cool violin and string ensemble sequence from the movie (it's the English version of the scene though), and outstanding Japanese cover of the song featured in the movie that I didn't know I needed in my life:

  1. I've been meaning to watch this movie. It seems like it has a great soundtrack too. Great picks! :-)

    1. It was such a delight! I hope you enjoy when you pick it up.

  2. Wow this sounds cool. I was NOT expecting to hear Country Roads. :) Or Olivia Newton- John singing it. Double treat. Wow...

    1. I had no idea what to expect from the movie, but it was a great surprise.

  3. This is such a lovely film. Honestly, I never expected to enjoy it as much as I did, but it's become one of my favourite Studio Ghibli pieces.

  4. Never seen the movie but these are good!

  5. I've seen the movie and really liked it. But I didn't remember this song! It's beautiful, thanks for sharing it.
