Hello ERR community,
Recently i started watching some episodes of sailor moon (for nostalgic reasons.... donīt ask!) While watching episode 35 i made a funny discovery. Follow this link and find out for yourself. Go to 8 minutes and 15 seconds.

Dude.  That's totally the main melody line from "Forever" off of "Karma".

That album came out in 2001.  According to Wikipedia, the Sailor Moon anime ran from 1992 through 1997, so Saiilor Moon was there first!

I know this is an old post so maybe you've found out this by now, but the piece used in Sailor Moon is an instrumental version of Solveig's Song from the Peer Grynt Suite by Edvard Grieg. The Peer Gynt suite is a famous work of classical music that contains the even more famous pieces "Morning Mood" and "In the Hall of the Mountain King". Kamelot directly borrowed/adapted the melody from Solveig's Song for the chorus of Forever.

Here is a full instrumental version of Solveig's Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ii2Adi2iFRM

Here's a vocal version in the original Norweigian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8AD75_sNJM

And here's a version in English sung by Sarah Brightman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NM5LgC0mto

Actually, I had not known this.  Thanks for the find.

I bumped in to this while exploring that, I found another rendition of that song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMO-E4dSuoE

It's gorgeous, isn't it?  Take a minute and listen, her voice is amazing.  At about 1:50 she does this little not-really-a-vocal-improv that comes out so effortlessly that even as I was listening to how beautiful it sounded, I was intensely jealous.  Anyone who's tried to get good at singing and has taken vocal should most likely be floored (and possibly jealous like me) when they hear her.
