The Rain Book: An Old Irish Song
It's finally March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, and what better song for someone of multi-generational Irish heritage like me to post than something directly from…Japan.
I'm not a video gamer, but I do know that the Japanese take their game music pretty seriously. Three albums of Celtic music alone (and seven other albums) were created for the Playstation role-playing video game series Genso Suikoden. This song is every bit as evocative of the Emerald Isle as some of the other things we've shared this week, don't you think? I mean, it's even called An Old Irish Song, right? That's good enough for me!
