Undoubtedly one of the best of the Shōwa period of Godzilla films, Mothra vs. Godzilla features the return of the Shobijin along with Mothra herself. Akira Ifukube’s scoring is tremendous and vivid, and Emi and Yumi Itō sing this melancholic, gentle tune he composed for the film.

Although far eclipsed by the popularity of the iconic Mothra’s Song, the haunting melody of this piece has stuck with me since childhood.
