Ten Year Best

Post by dillpops » 2005-11-08 11:26

Akino Arai is releasing her 20th anniversary best this year, and this made me think...

Maaya's official debut was in 1996 with "Yakusoku ha Iranai" - so next year will be her 10th anniversary and I'm pretty hopeful that there will be some sort of best singles collection for all of us loyal fans to go dizzy over. Hopefully it'll have some pretty extras.

Create your PERFECT Maaya best and talk about what pretty extras and features it might have in a limited edition - maybe your dream will come true next year. My idea:

Maaya Sakamoto 10th Anniversary "I.D"

1. Hashiru
2. Makiba Alice
3. mameshiba
4. DIVE
5. Kiseki no Umi
6. hemisphere
7. bokura no rekishi
8. tune the rainbow
9. LOOP
10. YUKKA
*BONUS TRACK*: Yakusoku ha Iranai ~new vocal and mix~

First pressing DVD:

01. Message from Maaya
02. Kiseki no Umi ~live~
03. 1996-2006 behind scenes video montage
04. tune the rainbow ~acoustic live~
05. Maaya PV digest

I'd might go for the following:
  • Feel Myself (the first song on the first album)
  • Bokura no Rekishi ("Our History")
  • Cloud 9 (a song with a travelling feel)
  • Mameshiba (another song with a travelling feel)
  • Taikutsu to Yuuutsu ("Boredom and Depression")
  • Kodoku ("Solitude")
  • Tomodachi ("My Best Friend")
  • Life is Good (we got each other and it is all we need)
  • T-Shirt
  • Call to Me
  • Yuunagi Loop
  • Yakusoku wa Iranai
Tried to make a cd with two happiness peaks, some unhappiness and which ends with the power to go on even if things don't go always right.

I was thinking of something like this the other day, and actually made a list. It's pretty long, so I'll cut it down to 10 or so:

0) Yakusoku wa Iranai ~New version~
1) Kodoku
2) SUTOROBO no Sora
3) Kuuki to Hoshi
4) Blind Summer Fish
5) Yubiwa
6) Birds
7) Ongaku
8) Sora o Miro
9) Kaze ga Fuku Hi
10) CALL YOUR NAME
11) Sanctuary ~hidden track~

First press could come with a DVD!
Maybe some live footage or maybe new videos of the following songs:
YUKKA
Koucha
Chibikko Folk
Hikari Are
tune the rainbow
Grapefruit
Inori

or something like that...hehe :lol:

It is track 9 from the album Kita He White Illumination: Pure Songs and Pictures (according to my tags). It hasn't appeared in any other cd afaik. There is also a video clip of it, being an anime of course. It is continuous, not interrupted by speech.

Edit Added Pure Songs and Pictures to wiki for a more complete information.

Edit #2 Removed the MP3.

CD 2 (bonus CD):
1. rare lives or stage performances of maaya
2. accoustic on-stage performnce of "tomodachi" *my ll time favourite maaya song ^__^*
3. maaya's short notes, making notes and photos yay kawaii!!! :oops:

price: around 3400 Y and below $ 14 for overseas would be fit enough :wink:

my concept were like: the singles collection, with several exceptions of non singles... that's why the list were pretty much chronological... :D and another thing i like the concept of lucy: putting an instrumentl track made by Kanno Yoko-san in the first track so i add my favourite instrumental track which definitely is hitomi's theme

i dunno with you guys but for me the more the better, then i wouldnt be so excited abiout tht 10 tracks limitations or so :P

@merri

Yakusoku wa iranai (because it was essential to her career, ne?)
Tsuki to hashiri nagara (gotta choose something from the new album)
Kuuki to hoshi (my favourite Maaya song)
Doreddo 39 (another favourite)
Afternoon repose (one ofthe calmer songs that isn't so sad)
Kaze ga fuku hi (ah... it's just beautiful)
Life is good (a happy happy song)
Strobo no sora (one of the power songs)
Kingfisher girl (just beautiful)
03 (one of the sad songs)

Uwah... such a random mix. ^.^;

As for the extras, some behind-the-scenes material would definitely be nice. Maybe some Maaya stickers (of her and of her little doodlings ^.^; ) or some UFO doll of her? That would be corny, but I'd want it. XD

quite intersting bad_day_today, yet in my opinion a full concert is not something you can add as an extra material of any album, no they would definitely sell it for higher benefit... don't expect too much :D

*yeah like they would see these messages anyway* :P

hey why don't we send these messages instead... of course to her e-mail above at least to let maaya's crew *so sad* to know our ideas bout her ten year anniversary debut XD

Hmm I guess you're right... I'm just hoping I can see Maaya's concert on DVD... You know.. like I really want to watch her on stage sooo much T_T You guys that have been living in USA was veeerry lucky to be able to see her on stage on AnimeFest... If I had tons of money, I would fly to US just to see Maaya on concert huhuhu.. (desperate crying~~)

In case that I haven't know yet, have there's already Maaya concert in DVD on sale before??? I would like to buy it~~~ (let me check my purse first ^^)

Hmm.. I know I was hoping too much~~ I guessed you guys have been talking about sending e-mail to Maaya-san... is it already done yet? I remember I'm already saw a thread like that.. hmm.. lemme check~~
http://maayas.net/viewtopic.php?t=283&h ... nding+mail

So, It will be sent at new year's? It's a loong time from here... I guessed we can include this ten years album celebration!! yeah!! \(^o^)/

I'd like her to do remakes of a few songs, i'd like to see her alone with a piano and guitar in some songs, or maybe a 40 piece orchestra..maybe live sessions with a band for more rocky things. E.g.

1. Kimidori (acoustic)
2. Kiseki no Umi (full orchestra)
3. Fado (full orchestra)
4. neko to inu (piano)
5. Gravity (full orchestra)
6. ~scrap (full rock band session)
7. tune the rainbow (special mix version, not a euromix, just new instrumentation)
8. Loop (full rock band session)
9. Birds (full orchestra)
10. Afternoon repose (piano)
Blablabla I haven't really picked the songs I would choose but you get the idea

And then a big diary following maaya around on the CD, plus a session video of her singing orchestrally.

that
would
be
so
hot
