Music like this is our only hope for peace

The little girl of the sea is such a fitting title to this piece. Effortlessly skirting the line between hopeful and poignant and all the while maintaining this lilting, childlike quality. A mermaid longing for the sky.

Raw and honest, perfectly executed expression. But yet, not perfect (like, for example, Moonlight Sonata) --this song has human frailty, and sounds as though it may fall apart. When the chords do resolve, the redemption is short of triumphant, but more than bittersweet. There is something indeterminat e here, like Mona Lisa's smile. The feeling of this song falls in between two places. This is an artistic achievement to be recorded in the annals of humanity's highest aspirations.

I wish more people know about this song—it's simply beautiful.

This is one of the most beautiful musical compositions I have ever heard. I love the fact that I was able to share it with my mother before she died. She also thought it was wonderful. You can almost believe, while listening to this, that there are no troubles in the world. Then it ends, but, you can hold on to it in your soul and hear it again when the chips are down.

This is wonderful in so many aspects... It's like cuddling with your shadow, your inner darkness.

Is this from a movie it sounds so much like a movie score?

By the way its originally from a soundtrack album called L'Apocalypse des animaux. Recorded all the way back in 1970, which was even before the breakthrough albums that Vangelis is most known for.

Also, @troyw91 - this song is not on Opera Sauvage. At least not the original vinyl. It is a great album, though!

A lot of Vangelis songs play on my Tomita station. This one is definitely the best! This song is like cuddling up with your own shadow.
