No. 1 favourite songs
Wir sind Helden were a great German band. Lead singer Judith Holofernes (who is now a successful solo artist) really knows how to work the German language. "Außer dir" is a beautiful (and to my perception almost untranslatable) declaration of love bearing complex emotions in every single line. I've chosen this as my favourite song because I think this was the one that got me interested in song lyrics for the first time. I could still listen to it every single day. Actually, I saw WSH live in concert twice and this song both times caused that very special silence in the audience that only certain songs can provoke.

My all-time favorite song is Lacrimosa by Kalafina. I discovered this song in my early anime days, and it has stuck with me ever since. When I heard it for the first time, I thought immediately that it was exactly the kind of music I've always wanted to listen to. I discovered more great songs later, but this one in particular feels made for me.

My favorite song is Zerkala (Зеркала) by Irina Bilyk at present. It has been my favorite since Aug. 23, 2017 when I heard it for the first time. Although I couldn't understand a word, the melody attracted me and it made me feel optimistic. Whenever I listen to it (especially when I am down), I would feel as if I entered a whole new world where impossible dreams come true or so. Now I've known the lyrics meaning and I can even sing it, but I would still like to explain the song with the feeling I had when I came across it.

My favorite song is Kairo (懐炉) by LACCO TOWER. I love it because it motivated me to go through some rough times and because it somehow makes me feel quite nostalgic - the lyrics, the melody, the setting of the video... It all brings back good memories for some reason and never fails to take my breath away.
