Back To Mine with Cray Pray

 

1. SPECIAL OTHERS – AIMS

It was this song that opened my eyes to dance music, when at the time I was playing drums in the band. Even though each part played with its own sense of rhythm, I was shocked at the level of perfection when it was united.

2. a-ha – Take On Me

An exciting feeling when entering a melody from an exciting intro. This is so catchy and will remain in my ear for a long time.

3. YMO – Rydeen

I was shocked that such a cool song was made before I was born, and by people born in the same country as me. It is a song that does not fade away even after 40 years, and it still sounds fresh in its own way.

 

4. Ryuichi Sakamoto – Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence

This song creates a magnificent image while providing a nostalgic atmosphere. Also, for me, it is a song that expanded the possibilities of the piano melody.

5. Des’ree – You Gotta Be

There are a lot of remixes, but all are excellent. In addition, it is packed with a positive message, and it is a song which gives hope and spirit to the listener.

6. Tommy Vercetti – I Miss You

The track that reminded me of my passion for the sound of a piano. It is a song that where dance music and the sound of the piano matched the best.

7. Krystal Klear – Neutron Dance

Even if it is likely to be a poor song if you make a mistake, it is a wonderful song with an exquisite sense of balance. Although it is likely to become an old-fashioned song, this song has a newness that transcends the oldness.

8. Soul Central – Strings Of Life (Danny Krivit Re Edit)

This is a song with a real Piano passion. From the development of the track to the melody, everything is the best.

9. The Shapeshifters – Chime

Sounds like flowing, delicate piano sound. It is a melody that remains in the mind, and is repeated throughout the brain.

10. Solu Music feat. Kimblee – Fade

This record is very moody, and the keyboard phrase and the beautiful singing voice match very well.
