Music Monday: Simple and Clean; Revisited

Today I would like to touch on the song that we all know and love, Simple and Clean by Utada Hikaru. Although the Kingdom Hearts game is what introduced this song to most of us some fans still might not know that there’s an actual music video for it. I was scrolling my way down tumblr as I usually do in the evening and came across this music video. At first I thought it was just some kind of joke till I looked closer and realized that the woman was actually Utada Hikaru in the flesh! The official simple and clean music video is actually just a still shot of Utada cleaning dishes. I laughed so hard at how big of a pun this was but hey, I’m not complaining. I love her voice and although years have passed since I was first introduced to this song, I still love it.

And on another note, I understand that I’m pretty inconsistent with my content lately but it’s because of how THE LAST WEEK of my internship was. You read that right, THE LAST WEEK of my internship! Meaning that I’m graduating on Wednesday and I couldn’t be anymore excited! Now the job search is on and I’m a bit stressing about it at this point T_T but I know I’ll find one eventually, I just have to look on the brighter side of things.

Music Monday: Kingdom Hearts

Good morning and happy Monday! Sometimes I wish we had 3 day weekends instead. But anyhow, lets kick off Monday with one of my favorite songs from the KH series, “Simple and Clean” by Utada Hikaru.

I’d like to say that this song is very nostalgic for me whenever I hear it, I remember the very ending of KH where I finally defeated Ansem. Waves of excitement washed over me as the final cutscene for the game happens. I put my controller down and propped my elbow on my knees and watched the game finally come to an end. The part where Sora and Kairi let go of each others hands nearly had me in tears as I finally realized that their might not be another game, little did I know about the secret ending at the very end of the credits though. Anyways, without further ado, feel free to relive the ending of KH again and listen to the song we all know and love.
