The wife and I have come to find that sleep is a rare commodity here in the last couple days. At least, for us it is. For our baby Lily, all she needs to crash is a bottle of milk, some time in the rocking chair, and of course, Nobuo.
Introduced in utero, Lily has had a front row seat to some of the best that Nobuo Uematsu has to offer. We spent many nights laying with the iPod sitting atop my wife's stomach and the most relaxing tunes from Final Fantasy lulling us to sleep. For this particular task, I had chosen an album compiled and released in 2001, a collection of songs from Final Fantasy III through VIII. Potion: Relaxin' with Final Fantasy.
- "Fragments of Memories"
- "Balamb GARDEN - Ami"
- "The Successor"
- "(エアリスのテ-マ", Aerith No Tēma?, lit. Aerith's Theme]])
These are all beautiful songs, several of them all time favorites from the Final Fantasy series. I'm sure some of your favorites are in there too. However, my personal favorite is on the second album, Pray, and I'll leave it with you before I try to find a few minutes of sleep myself...
