[ Song of the Week ] Priscilla Ahn – “Fine on the Outside”

from the album Just Know That I Love You. (2014)

I just finished up a great film challenge that I gave myself: to watch every Ghibli film within a year. I started in January, and now twenty-two films later, the first full weekend of September is when I finally watched the final (for now) Ghibli film, When Marnie Was There, for the first time. I don’t know why I waited so long! It is now easily one of my overall favorites from the studio. But more on that another time…

This is the ending theme to the film, written and performed by Priscilla Ahn. It’s actually quite a melancholy song, and is sort of an image song for Anna, the main character of the story.
