Thank you so much for these.Glad you've enjoyed it. I've discovered it by chance yesterday looking for something similar to the last link I posted. I loved it so much, I actually had it on loop. I had an inkling it would be good once I saw Michael's silhouette near that cherry blossom graphic, which matches so well my current, Japanese-inspired avatar Don't y'all mind my vain, ever self-centered self, who has to make it all about me
The human voice is indeed the most amazing instrument. And for me, like for plenty of others, Michael's voice is my favorite sound. There are though some really beautiful instrumentals out there, like Someone in the dark.
Here's another intriguing and unexpected instrument (the panpipe) used to cover one of Michael's most significant tunes - Will you be there?
And here's Michael's own crew doing a most magical rendition of the song
I've only been aware of Someone in the Dark for a couple of weeks. filmandmusic included it in a list with a little written description. f&m has a talent for capturing songs with just a few words so I jumped in and have been bonding with it ever since. I'm looking forward to checking that one out.
But the one I went for straight away was WYBT from TII. It was really interesting because even though Michael's vocals are missing he seemed very present. I don't mean in a ghostly way but just, in his absence he seemed more present, if that makes any sense. It was beautiful listening to it, the band did a really good job.
I agree with you about the cherry blossom graphic; as soon as I saw it I thought, 'oh this looks good', even though I was referring to something I was about to listen to, not watch. The photo they've chosen is perfect. His arm somewhat echoing the direction of the branches and there's a similar energy there, as well. Lovely.
