Get ready for hours of scenes, songs, and memories that tantalize your ears.
Anyone who’s a fan of Studio Ghibli anime knows it’s not just the stories, scenic landscapes, or lovable characters that drive their obsession, but the music has also played a huge role in the popularity of the animated movie company. For those who don’t have time to sit down and cue up every Studio Ghibli movie, the Radio Ghibli music mix might just be for you.
In January, NTS Radio released their first one-hour playlist that featured music and songs from Studio Ghibli movies released from 1986 to 1992 mixed by Sega Bodega. The selection includes the studio’s first feature film Castle in the Sky as well as Grave of the Fireflies, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Only Yesterday and Porco Rosso.
This month, NTS Radio has released their second mix, which features the music from movies that came out between 1994-2001. For fans who don’t have a Studio Ghibli timeline memorized that means music from Pom Poko, Whisper of the Heart, Princess Mononoke, My Neighbors the Yamadas, and Spirited Away.
The one-hour mixes provide a fun and new way to listen to the magical and wonderful music of Studio Ghibli in a convenient set it and forget it kind of way. The blend of our favorite lyrical songs with the occasional poignant line from a movies makes these beautiful melodies into truly wonderful listening. There will be a final mix released later in the year that will feature the rest of the Ghibli films so listen to them while you work, or while you create some amazing Ghibli fanart, either way we know what we’re listening to around the RocketNews24 offices.
