TUESDAY TUNE (Twofer): “Midnight City” and “Reunion” by M83 (For “Akira” Fans)

I recently re-watched the anime film Akira and, in wandering the web reading about the movie, I ran across this little tidbit: the music videos for the songs “Midnight City” and “Reunion” by band M83 are homages to the movie.


I had seen “Midnight City” before and I really should have seen the connection as a group of psychic children are being used to further the ends of the powers that be. The music is cool and the videos are interesting to watch. There are seem decent special effects here which would have been almost impossible to produce just a few short years ago.
