Ahead of the US release of Finaly Fantasy XII, the elderly alone and unmedicated decides wouldn't it be cool to have a battle of the Final Fantasy singers. Yes it's amazing what thoughts come to you in the wee small hours, but what's the old fool on about now?.
Japanese singer Angela Aki sings the Vocal Theme to FFXII called "Kiss Me Goodbye" to be heard in all it's glory on the following elderly post (following elderly post).
Back in 1999 Chinese singer Kaye Wong sang the Vocal Theme to FFVIII called "Eyes on Me", which sold over 400,000 copies and was the best selling videogame music single until Utada Hikaru released "Hikari" for Kingdom Hearts.
Angela Aki has also sung her version of "Eyes on Me" at the premiere PLAY! A video Game Symphony concert in Chicago on May 27, 2006.
And Volia!! your chance to join the raging debate amongst all .....erm!! all 3 fans who swear that Angela Aki's version is the best.
And perhaps the last time we'll have unrestricted access to such video gems following a Japanese entertainment group's recent request to YouTube to pull nearly 30,000 copyrighted video clips.
