Hi everyone! ^^

There were some things I was thinking about concerning the music of Hagaren, and I was wondering if anyone would humor me on these thoughts?

SPOILER WARNING: Movie Spoilers, and for those of you who don't want to know what's on Best Compilation (why not?), then don't click the cut.

For those of you who have either purchased or listened to the Conqueror of Shambala soundtrack, here's my thinking:

Doesn't it seem like track 43 would fit perfectly for Wrath's death scene? I mean, don't get me wrong, the music that they chose for the moment was great, but for some reason I think that the 43rd track (the name of it I can remember ;_;) would fit better? I personally think it would make the scene seem much more heartbreaking.

As for the Best Compilation, I know I'm asking this so soon, since it just came out, but does anyone have even the romajii lyrics for 'GOOD!'? My friends and I were thinking of doing some kind of skit or performance while in FMA cosplay to that song, but we can't really start practicing until we have lyrics to work off of. ^^;;

There's only certain parts of the songs we have down XDDD

Thanks alot in advance for commenters! ^^

Track 43, Sad Resolution~Separation, is a strings version of Bratja. As this is Ed and Al's theme, I can't see it working in a scene with Wrath. It has much more emotional resonance, to me, being used in the scene with the brothers.

Oh no! I don't mean to take it from their scene and put it into Wrath's, they can keep it in their scene. ^^;;

But you do present a good point.

Do you think maybe if all along, Bratja wasn't really presented as the Elric brother's theme, that it would have worked well? I would have never thought so deeply about Bratja's significance, I was thinking more the tone of the music, how it's so sad.

I don't think Bratja would have been the same piece of music if it hadn't always been presented as their theme. It couldn't have had the same lyrics in its vocal form and thus it wouldn't have the same emotional impact. It's certainly a beautiful piece of music, there's no denying that, but I think the emotional significance it has as Ed and Al's theme makes it even MORE layered and striking. For me, it's not just how the music sounds, but also the context in which it's used. That's true for me with any piece of music.

I definitely agree, I think practically the same.

I just figured I'd think outside the box a little with it, but oh well.
