"Sakura Sakura" is an old Japanese song that celebrates the Cherry Blossoms that bloom in Japan. This is my arrangement of it written for a string quartet. Below are the translated lyrics from Japanese to English. As for most of my songs, will you probably need to turn up the volume to hear it, sorry.

I hope you all enjoy and please, vote fairly and review!

Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
On Meadow-hills and mouintains
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the morning sun.
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Flowers in full bloom.
Cherry blossoms, cherry blossoms,
Across the Spring sky,
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds?
Fragrant in the air.
Come now, come,
Let's look, at last!

This deserves sooo much response from NG. I've known this song since I was little, but I've never heard such an amazing version before. You used those string absolutely perfectly with the tempo and everything. This piece forces sadness into those listening (even though it isn't about something sad). Frankly I never thought Sakura Sakura could sound this amazing. I wish I could give you a hundred reviews because you deserve many more than just 4!!

Aww, thank you! I feel that this genre of music is much underappreciated here on Newgrounds. Sadly, most of the users here don't have the maturity to appreciate it (silly 13 year olds) but those who do are amazing. ;)

Thank you for the review! Oh, and check out Gravey. He did a rendition of my version that is truly incredible! :D
