Do you like soundtracks?
Admittedly, I buy and download a lot of soundtracks. Most of the time, the tracks I like are serendipitous finds—which are really awesome. Then there are times when, though there are many in the soundtrack, all I’m after is just one song.
One song, sometimes, is enough.
For instance, when I was watching the anime “Emma: A Victorian Romance”, I was easily drawn to the opening theme, which is entitled “Silhouette of a Breeze.” Predictably, I downloaded that one, along with the rest of the soundtrack. Besides the original version, there are other versions of the song, which I have come to love but not as much as the first one. When the second season of the series premiered, they came up with a Celtic version. I still loved it. Thus my collection of the versions of the song has grown.
While, yes, I have listened to the song and its versions many times, I never grow tired of the airy, cheerful quality. Other renditions make it sound wistful or grand. But each one always transport me to Victorian London, either on a locomotive passing through the countryside or walking inside a great mansion. Or just being outside, enjoying the breeze, the symphony of the city, and the silhouette of a memory.
