With Evangelion 2.0 comes another theme song from my future wife and the mother of my un-born child Hikaru Utada. Her song “Beautiful world” (which also featured on her 5th Japanese studio album Heart station) was the main theme to Rebuild of Evangelion‘s first film Evangelion 1.0: You are (not) alone. And a remix of same song features as the theme to the second film Evangelion 2.0: You can (not) advance. I’m usually weary of remixes. When I think remixes I tend to think really bad dance music and over echoed vocals. But this right here is pretty awesome. The song is remixed by PLANiTb: who also remixed Hikaru’s theme song “Simple & clean” for Kingdom Hearts.

Now THAT is what you call a remix! I love how how the tone of the original version was just completely flipped with the new instrumentations. It would’ve been nice to have had Hikaru record all new vocals. But I’m such a stan that this’ll do for me.
I do hope for Evangelion 3.0 that we get a new song though and that we don’t keep getting remixes of “Beautiful world”. I love the song, but 4 to 5 different remixes of it is a bit much. Shit, who am I kidding. I’d lap ‘em all up and love ‘em regardless. Because I stan for Hikaru like that.
Damn I love this woman…
