A Daily Dose of Music: Old School Thursdays


From Earth to Iskandar

Time now for your blast from the past! It's Old School Thursdays! Today's dose contains some real history for your ears, as we've got the original theme from Space Battleship Yamato, the anime that started it all. Well, almost all, anyway. 

It's impossible to overstate just how important Yamato was, not just to mecha shows, but anime as a whole, which makes it doubly hilarious when you consider just how cheesy this theme sounds. It's pure '70s flavor, through and through.

As an added bonus, click on through to check out the main theme to Space Battleship Yamato 2199, a thoroughly epic reimagining of that classic cheese.
