This might be an strange question, but the first 30 seconds of "When Tomorrow Comes" (especially the pure piano/forte version) sound so oddly familiar. I just can't grasp where I heard the style before, maybe some piano arrange album? I'm fairly certain that it's not from one of the other albums Mami Horie has performed on.

Any ideas?

I tend to try and leave translations alone, but しいの実の指輪 = "The Fruit of Selfishness Ring" is stumping me. First of all, the English is... lacking. It's missing a "the" before selfishness - right now it's akin to saying something like "he's the king of castle." But aside from that, I don't understand the translation itself.

しい = It forms adjectives from nouns? Or also something like 9 different definitions if you want to assume しい is standing in for kanji.
実 = Truth <or> Fruit
指輪 = A ring (object)

I'm going to guess that しい is standing in for 恣意, which means arbitrary, which is a pretty long stretch from "selfish" but I guess you can get there if you really put some... spin on the word. But even if we go there and say that 実 means fruit, how does the word selfishness get in between the other two words? しいの指輪 would be the Selfishness Ring, adding 実の to the beginning would be the fruit of that ring, but that's not what we have. To me, 実の指輪 looks like the ring of truth.

To whoever did this translation: I don't mean to step on your toes. I just can't understand the resulting English.

it could be 椎の実 but as I don't know the game, it's pure speculation
