Its silly how i found you

through a 17+ anime cartoon

while searching for away to pass a lazy afternoon

my browser pulled a samurai cartoon

when the intro hip hop beat came on

i was in complete shock

i never heard a opening anime them with such groove ,such soul, that rocked !

i played the theme 10 times before watching the actual show

and i said to myself

Whose the genius wrote this?! this i have to know !

i searched and search YouTube until i couldn't search no more

then a song came up i never heard before

Counting stars by Nujabes!

i was so exited i quickly clicked the link

and before i had time to think

I swept away by a melody that made soul weep

such a simple melody with awesome with an amazing hip hop beat!

and before the song was fully complete

i hit the replay button to make it repeat .

Aquarian Dance, Psychological Counterpoint, Mystline

blew my musical mind !

then i read the comments on YouTube others left behind

even then i didn't want to believe it

i wanted to believe they were deceived a bit

but there was it was in black and white

but still I checked again

you died after a car accident in February 2010.

i never heard musician make music quite like you

now I'll never be able to tell you

what inspiration your

music gave to me

made me want to become musician just like you

but make music as soulful and cool as you

is something i want to do

and if I'm half as good as you I'll be happy till my life is through

Thank you for teaching what music is

R.I.P. Jun Seba

a.k.a. Nujabes
