Since I keep talking about it, I thought I'd post this song, too. This is my ultimate favorite in the "Weird Sort-of Love Songs...IN SPACE!" category. I mean, just listen to that glorious guitar. And those beautiful, gentle vocals. And the lyrics. The lyrics, man. As always, I can't do them justice.

The song is "Dreaming Machine," which was on Hirasawa Susumu's 1990 album The Ghost in Science. The song recently reappeared with a different (and even more fabulous) arrangement on his 2010 Hen-Gen-Ji-Zai album.
