This was not meant to be a double update... but...
I believe TAM is the arranger, the man in excellence that manages to convey his deepest sorrows with his violin. Which goes against the man himself since TAM is actually very cheerful guy if you talk with him.
TAM's forte has been and still is (and will forever be) in arranging sad songs, TAM manages to arrange sad songs and really bring out the sadness out of them. It's not extremely surprising, I'm sure most people will agree that a violin is a very "sad" instrument, the sound it makes almost seems like a cry, a sad cry. Which does not mean you cannot utilize it in a "happy" way, I mean, TAM has even made nice happy songs.
That's why most of TAM's arranges sound sad, and sorrowful, take Alice in Wonderland for example, it's a very sad song.
The first song is from a new TAM album, he released 3 in this comiket (as energetic as ever), and I can confidently say that this is his best one out of the 3, it's plain old TAM, piano and violin, no techno or rock or stuff like that. Let's all remember, that this is what TAM is best at, this is what TAM's best kind of arranges are.
These are no exceptions, I picked this song from his new album because I think it was one of the best ones, but don't get me wrong there are many other nice songs there (Cosmic Mind and Bishamonten, to be featured soon on the channel, look forward to it). Then I realized that the next video was number 150 (and that I'm almost at 1,000 subscribers), one thing lead to another, and so I decided to celebrate with one of TAM's most gorgeous songs, and probably the saddest classical touhou song to exist. Also taking note that I just uploaded a Green Eyed Jealousy arrange, but well vocals don't seem to be everyone's favorites on the channel so I'll lay off of those for a while.
Although we are supposed to celebrate I uploaded a sad song... ironic.
About the length, yeah... I know recently I have been uploading rather... long videos, ranging from 9 to 10 minutes (like this), you see, I like long suits of music, in fact, I love listening to certain albums (the concept ones) in lossless format as one big 1 hour track or something like that, since they are really gorgeous. I know we are on youtube and not somewhere else (in fact, it's not the most convenient place), but, if you can, please try to listen to the uploads from start to finish.
I'll be waiting for an eventual story if possible by anybody (85centimeters, or some other people, as I have noticed some people wanting to send me some stories, go ahead), although a "bad end" will be inevitable, whichever choice you make, this path only leads to one dead, bad end, that's how TAM's songs work.
Thanks for watching. A big thank you to everyone, I'm almost reaching 1,000 subscribers! Thank you so much everybody! And remember, it's okay to cry, TAM would be happy.
