Touhou Project is a series of shooting games, and it has lovely music, and there are tons of arrangements and remixes of the soundtracks made by lots of different groups. Sadly, searching for Touhou on myLot turns up a grand total of only one result, and it's not even a discussion result. Anyone else here on myLot who likes listening to Touhou songs too? What's your favourite song? Which albums do you really really love? My favourite tracks (originals from the game) are 3rd Eye (link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wI_p5SzBkgI ) and Cinderella Cage, favourite album (arrangement) is DARKNESS by =NeutraL=. I just love the way 3rd Eye sounds lonely and desperate and sad, yet also somewhat spirited. And I love the way there's this one tune that keeps playing in the background in Cinderella Cage.

don't worry man, you're not alone! yep, I like touhou too. but let me tell you, it actually make sence that touhou is not very popular in occident, but for me, is popular enough. music? I love ZUN's music! it's friggin beautiful, and so varied... I seriously love it fauvorite themes? it's hard to decide, I like them all, but maybe... Nuclear Fusion, Satori Maiden, Reach for the Moon Inmortal Smoke, Necro-Fantasy (both Ran and Yukari's versions) Lullaby of Deserted Hell, Green-Eyed Jealousy, Locked Girl... ZUN is such a genious at putting titles...

Yay, someone else who likes his music. Green-Eyed Jealousy is actually pretty good, but it seems a bit out of place in the game. I like Nuclear Fusion too. Nuclear Fusion and Hartmann's Youkai Girl both have that awesome epic boss fight feeling. Chireiden had plenty of awesome songs~! :3

indeed, chireiden has the best music in the entire series, in my opinion. there are Nuclear Fusion, Lullaby of Deserted Hell, Satori Maiden... but maybe (just maybe) my fauvorite song is Necro-Fantasy. this piano arrange drove me to tears the first time I listened to it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6mfDJh5Vx0 highly recommended!

I am a complete FAN of Touhou in it's entirety, cept for cosplay. That means i DO listen to Touhou soundtracks, both official and arranged. The reason i like listening to them is mainly the arranged ones, even those without videos. I like the originals solely for creating the musical basis for the ultra huge collection of fan music they have created. Btw im not using my usual name for this site since i want to keep my fan-identity secret, but i can tell any Touhou fan here through a PM my website. I own the site and i can make fan-games. Recently i started a Touhou doujin game circle, but we're making the games for the western fandom so it'll all be in english and anyone that can speak it can join and contribute.

I'm the... *counts upwards* fourth man? Or fifth? =)) I'm not well-acquainted with the newer things, but i absolutely adore U.N. Owen is Her? and Green-eyed Jealousy. Lullaby of The Deserted Hell (was it?), Orin's stage theme, is also fantastic. All hail ZUN!
