Ookina Furudokei / 大きな古時計: “big grandfather clock”

- “grandfather clock“
This song appeared on a bonus CD that was given out to those who got her 2013 Live DVD “Cinderella”/Concert Tour ’12 Hikigatari ~5th Letter~ / “シンデレラ”/CONCERT TOUR’12 弾き語り～5th Letter～ on its release day.
The CD is called Hanako to Hitsuji / 華子とひつじ (“Hanako with sheep”), which possibly refers to the time she went to Hitsuji no Oka / ひつじの丘[jp] (website[jp]) in Hokkaido in 2012 (I’ll post the four videos sometime).
The bonus CD contained this song, Furusato / ふるさと, and Oku Hanako counting 100 sheep with an a cappella rendition of Yurikago no Uta / ゆりかごのうた midway (or so I’ve read).
Oku-san’s rendition of Ookina Furudokei is beautiful. It really captures the sentimental quality of the song, and in my opinion, it’s timeless.
