So many years wasted! Why didn’t anyone tell me?! Yoko Kanno is amazing, and she’s particularly amazing when paired up with Origa. Go read about them… NOW.
In conclusion, she’s responsible for “Tank!“, the Cowboy Bebop theme as well as Ghost in the Shell music. She also has several albums on iTunes. I recommend them (if you can put up with a little J-Pop). Her albums are a smattering of different music genres and styles, which is bragable.
Here’s some awesome from CM Yoko.
