As promised, here another Inspirational song that I’d like to share with you. This one has no lyrics, has nothing but the feeling, and the performance. That is what makes it so special. The first time I heard it, I was away from the computer, listening to a new playlist, and when I started listening to it I realized how heartfelt it was. I could feel what it was, but being the dense person I am, I couldn’t place my finger on the emotion it was embodying. So I sat down and watched the performance, and after that, I actually read the title. This performance is by Malice Mizer, from long ago when an extremely talented man named Gackt was the lead singer. This video made me a fan of Gackt—can you blame me?!—and even my mother (who tells me to get “all that Chinese-stuff” away from her) approved. The man on the drums was Kami (RIP). Also, if you pull this particular video up on YouTube, you can download the mp3 from a link in the description. So, I share today, Malice Mizer’s LIVE performance of Regret. (I have no rights to this video. I just love it a lot.)
Now, with how absolutely amazing this song is… I hope it has the same effect on you as it does me—because it gets me up and running. It is beautiful, inspiring, and so heartfelt that I believe it could make puppies cry. I listen to this song frequently enough that it has the effect of calming me from anger and giving me the determination to work on/finish old and forgotten projects. This song can make me face just about anything—and that is what true music does.
