Like much of the UK (and beyond) this week, I’ve been binging on The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season two. This song provides the climax of the episode “Kimmy Goes to a Play!” as preformed by Titus – in a beautiful/funny moment.
This version of the song is particularly pretty. You don’t have to understand what the lyrics mean to understand the sadness, regret and longing tied up it. I really like the more familiar sound of the guitars (at least, I think there are guitars here) with the more foreign Japanese instrumentation (as it sounds to my English ears).
