Hello! None of these are really ranked I’m just listing three songs that I enjoy as “no think” music. Anyway, here we go! (Also this music really isn’t for everyone especially at first).
1. White Silence – TK from Ling Tosite Sigure
White Silence is a song that was originally featured in TK’s solo debut album “Flowering”. It’s a softer song than some of the others that will appear later on the list. It puts a specific image in my head. While listening to this song I see a frozen lake, the ground covered in snow as far as the eye can see, surrounded by pine trees. The song feels lonely and full of regret, yet serene. It’s one of my favorite songs to listen to while riding in a car late at night.
2. Tsuru No Shikaeshi (鶴の仕返し – Crane’s Revenge/Loop) – TK from Ling Tosite Sigure
Yeah, I know. Another one from TK. That’s what most of this is going to be, honestly. This song is a lot more hectic than White Silence. It’s a very “red” song. Not an angry song, just red. Once again, no idea how to convey it well. The song was first released in the album “Sainou” which translates, albiet roughly, to “Talent”.
3. copy light – From THE FIRST TAKE – TK from Ling Tosite Sigure
If I said this list wasn’t going to mostly be songs from this man I would be lying. This song is a variant form of “copy light” from the album “Sainou”. It’s one of my personal favorites, so I have a good idea about the meaning of this song. It’s a song about how the portrayal of love in media is often idealistic, and can mislead young people into thinking things will always turn out that way. It portrays the idea that people should decide what love is for themselves, and not base everything in their love lives on what pop culture portrays love to be.
There’s definitely more but these are my main three.
