Okay... here's the deal. I got a hold of a remix of a song off of the Xenogears soundtrack. Now, the entire soundtrack was written (according to my sources) in a very Celtic manner. So when I heard it I couldn't help but think that some one ripped off Iona and tried to pass it off as their own! I was at first enfuriated, considering that Iona is my favorite band. So, I went on a crusade to figure out if the vocals existed in one of Iona's songs... I was having no luck, so I tried Altavista. I first searched for a connection between the name of the piece (Broken Mirror Reflections) and Iona, but I couldn't find anything. Then I considered a part of the lyrcs... and this is what I found: The lyrics "Broken mirror" (from which the title was derived) was not the title after all on the original soundtrack (which is to be expected). The title was "Small Two of Pieces". So, I looked for the original soundtrack so that I could figure out if the sample was actually existant originally. So when I found this clip of the song, I couldn't believe my ears. It sounded SO MUCH like Iona!!! I would actually not be surprised if Joanna Hoagg (lead singer for Iona) had actually done the vocals for this piece! The resemblance is astounding!!! So now, I'm on a quest to find out who actually sung for that track... wish me luck!!!
