30 Days Of Pokémon Challenge (29)
Day 29: Favourite Pokémon Tune Or Song — Born To Be A Winner
This has been my favourite Pokémon opening ever since I first heard it. I’d like to note that I prefer the TV version of ‘Born To Be A Winner’ over the full/movie version, just because I love that techno-like “Pokémon, Pokémon, Pokémon” at the start.
My second favourite is probably ‘We Will Be Heroes’ (the opening for Diamond & Pearl: Battle Dimension). I just love the opening beat and the singer’s voice, especially where it’s all low and sultry at the start.
I also love the Master Quest opening, and then the Johto Journeys opening, as well as all four openings in the Advanced Generation series (‘I Want To Be A Hero’ and ‘Unbeatable’ especially). Oh, and I could go on and on about all the songs I love off of the album Pokémon 2.B.A. Master (i.e. just about every track except ‘Pokémon (Dance Mix)’).
Oh, I almost forgot! ‘Brother My Brother’ from Pokémon - The First Movie! That one definitely deserves an honourable mention — such a beautiful song, with such beautiful lyrics, and I’m pretty sure it’s made me cry whilst watching the movie.
Gee, I could write a whole essay on my love for Pokémon music, but for your sake, I shall cut it short and stop here.
