    Version History
    1.00b - 19/xi/2003 - Found out about 4 more tapes which you can win as prizes,
                         which I seem to have missed. Thanks to Russel Marks for
                         pointing this out.
    1.00a - 14/vii/2003 - Reformat, taking out a lot of filler.
    1.00 - 22/ii/2003 - OK, I gathered a load of information, and got it down.
                        However, I have a gut feeling that there's a lot more I
                        can find, so for the moment this is v1, but there should be
                        a v1.5 coming, as soon as I get more info.
    Shen Mue is an RPG by Sega, in which you take control of Ryo Hazuki in his
    quest to avenge his father. This game is the first ever FREE game (even though
    you have to pay for it ;). The game spans across three discs, with a fouth disc
    (known as Passport, even though it won't get you abroad).
                         Full Reactive Eyes Entertainment
             Go wherever you want to go, see whatever you want to see,
                     investigate what you want to investigate.
                 In this world, the passage of time is realistic.
              A refreshingly cool morning breaks and transforms into
          a warm, sunny afternoon. The beautiful sunset of early evening
                   melds slowly into a quiet and still night.
                When it rains, it rains. When it snows, it snows.
                    At times it continues without letting up.
                            Here, life is realistic.
          There are people here who take daily walks in the park, people
               working hard everyday to make a living, shop owners
          selling their goods, children playing, housewives gossiping...
                everyone living their own unique, everyday lives.
                        Yes, this world is a real world.
                     Meet and interact with numerous people.
               Learn and develop through a variety of experiences.
              A compelling and majestic drama that will engulf you
                                   exists here.
    This guide is a Music Guide, therefore it contains the usual stuff you'd expect
    to see on a Music Guide - lyrics, tracklists etc. Shenmue had several CDs
    released, and they are covered here, but so also is the in-game music. Anyway,
    Shenmue had two veteran composers, Takenobu Mitsuyoshi and Yuzo Koshiro, working
    on it, backed up by three more unknown people Takeshi Yanagawa, Osamu Murata and
    Ryuji Iuchi.
    Soundtrack CDs
     Original Soundtrack
    The Original Soundtrack is a double CD with 39 tracks. From the Shenmue theme
    tune to the songs that play in the different shops, this double CD contains
    every single song within the game. In the accompanying booklet, there are
    some bits of art, as well as some lyrics for some of the songs.
     Juke Box
    This CD was a limited edition off in certain versions of Shenmue, but only
    in Japan and USA (unfortunately). Therefore my information is slightly
    limited but I've heard that it contains the songs on the in-game jukeboxes
    and its name would seem to confirm that fact ;)
     Orchestra Version
    The Orchestra Soundtrack CD was released before the game's release, back in
    April 1999. The CD contains eight tracks, performed by the Shenmue Orchestra
    and the Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Hiroshi Kumagai.
    Another Polygram release, which was more of a single-type disc, with variations
    of the Shenhua theme.

    Shenhua Lyrics
    Japanese Lyrics
    Kirameku sanrei waki-dasu tsumetai mizu wa
    Shiratsu [Hakuru] matotta kiyorana mori ni shimi-iru
    Kidaki sugatade sakihokoru sono hana no
    Yose-au [yuri-au] hana-bira usumurasaki ni kagayakite
    Fukisusabu kaze ni sae mukuno hitomi wa kesenai
    Hikari ga atsumaru yasashi kozue no moto de
    Osanai kokoro ni fushigina chikara yadorite
    Yutaka ni sosoida hotaru no kawa no nagare ni
    Dakarete nemureba harukana omokage izuko
    English Translation
    The cold water caused to gush out from the twinkling mountain summit
    Enters into a holy forest wrapped in white dew
    Of noble form, the flower which blooms in glory
    Its petals which have collected together sparkle in the orchid
    In spite of a violently blowing wind, the innocent/pure pupil is not extinguished
    The light gathers beneath a kind/gentle tree top
    And there, in the heart of an infant, a wonderous/mysterious power dwells
    Richly poured into the flow of a river of fireflies
    While embracing, if you should lay to rest, where is the memory
