So I was in my dorm studying for a test and I needed some…”Motivational Music”. My iPod’s playlist has been beaten countless times and I needed something new. I thought–“Hey! I haven’t heard anime music in a while.” I typed in anime music and came across this video. I thought, “Oh cool, It’s a Railgun thumbnail.”
I swear, my heart stopped. ANIME TRANCE MUSIC? SERIOUSLY? I didn’t even bother reading the title.
And then I noticed something else.
FREAK 1 HOUR 19 MINUTES and 42 SECONDS. WHAT?
I mean, it’s not like I “hate it” per say, but my brain almost fried; the first time anyway. OHOHOHO.
That’s a lot of Trance music. Whoever put this play list together–much less MIXED all these anime songs. Just wow. I remember when that was a thing. Every AMV created prior to 2008 usually had some of Trance. A very common Trance artist everyone FREAKING USED was Cascada. Not going to lie though, Every Time We Touch was a bombin’ song.
If you search the tag Cascada AMV, you come up with *COPY AND PASTE* <–ACTION
About 8,590 results on Youtube.
That’s a lot of freaking trance–and that’s one song. ONE. SONG.
The video up top has gotten 1,580,249 views. I’m wondering out of those 1,580,249 views actually went through the whole video. I admit, I pretty much skipped around looking at different thumbnails to see if any anime I liked was in the anime trance mix. I spotted Eureka Seven, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun, and Maho Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. Everything else was pretty new to me.
I must admit something else.

I listened to this whole play list at least twice. I am two of the 1,580,249 views.
1 FREAKING HOUR. 18 FREAKING MINUTES. 42 LONG…..LONG SECONDS.
In fact, I am listening to the play list as we speak–or as I write this. That does not matter.
