Hayley Westenra

“I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I’d like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can’t be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.” – Red, The Shawshank Redemption

That’s how this song makes me feel. Since it’s a recent release, no full version of this song, just the excerpt off of the official webpage…

    That’s interesting you think it’s so beautiful.
    It’s a traditional Maori song, and there are some who think it should become the national anthem of New Zealand. Others are not so keen as they think it’s a little twee.
    (Partly because bastardisations of it have been used in ads etc)

    ma se non erro si era gie1 detto che il 3ds rende graficamente melgio di WIi, in quanto gode di effetti di luce ecc. superiori. In ogni caso gie1 su Wii i titoli migliori graficamente sono pregevoli, tutto sta nello sfruttare lb4hw disponibile e su di uno schermo cosed piccolo sicuramente lb4impatto e9 migliore . Questo titolo non lb4ho avuto su PS2 quindi e9 nei miei most wanted senza dubbio, salvo che non venga inserito nella collezione in hd per xbox360 in uscita sempre in autunno!
