Stargazing: Yume wa Owaranai ~Kobore Ochiru Toki no Shizuku~ - Nazuka Kaori

Day 6 of 31, folks! Today we're bringing a blast from the past, and we're sprinkling a pinch of additional cuteness to it.

Yes, today's song is a classic, retracing back to the days of Tales of Phantasia, the awesome RPG that really helped kick off the Tales games to what they are today. While the original version of the game was on the Super Nintendo, this song was from the PlayStation rendition. When you include it in the Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai cover album and grant it the sweet voice of Nazuka Kaori, it's an instant recipe for success.

'Yume wa Owaranai ~Kobore Ochiru Toki no Shizuku~' blends together a slower song with some great instrumentals and vocals. There's a lovely mix of light synth with stronger electric guitar that really brings the song into the modern age, but retains its original charm. Also, this is a good time to mention that if you haven't explored the magical world of the Tales games, you really should! The battles are fast-paced, the characters are always fun and the stories are grand. Plus, the series only seems to grow stronger and more supported as the years pass by.
