As it’s been raining and drizzling outside all day, I’ve spent today in my room doing homework and listening to music, which really is not as lonely as it sounds (denial?). However, considering the weather, I thought it would be appropriate to share this beautiful tune.
It’s been a while since I found a Vocaloid song that made me say, “Oh, I want that,” but when I heard this track, I immediately went out and got it. Featuring the darker toned Hatsune Miku, “in the rain” takes full advantage of the lilts that seem to populate Vocaloid songs. The moments when you can tell that it’s an electronic vocal, not a human one actually add to the song’s laid back, peaceful charm. The title really tells you all you need to know about the track. The instrumental backing, featuring piano, synth and guitar, rides secondary to Miku’s gorgeous melody and captures perfectly the mood of standing in a peaceful rain.
“in the rain” clocked in at number 7 on Tower Records’ weekly anime song rankings (if you want to see the full list, go here). It is by the producer keeno. Enjoy the music and have a great Saturday!
