[currentlyLISTENING2]

14 08 2008

these days I’m a little idle – well, completely idle in fact… so I’ve been listening to music a lot. here is my [halcyon] list (that’s how I call my everyday playlist):

[GReeeN]

.::キセキ::.

.::rookies::.

キセキ (kiseki) is the theme to [rookies] dorama and a great song in my opinion. the second one I’m not sure about, it must appear in the series, but I don’t recall hearing it @_@ *hopeless*

[MICA3CHU]

.::I don’t know::.

.::shut up::.

a collaboration between [morisanchu] and [nakashima mika] – the result: a great song that get the best of nakashima, that is, her NANA side!

[utada hikaru]

.::prisoner of love::.

.::prisoner of love (quiet version)::.

theme to [last friends]. I find this song really catchy, the parts where the chorus joins in are my fave :)

[mr children]

.::gift::.

.::centre of universe::.

[gift] is [mr children]’s last single. I had heard about this group, specially in jmusic blogs, but had never cared to listen to their songs. now I’ve got hold of some old albums and selections and I’m trying to catch up! – that’s why I’m also including the second song, which is older than [gift]. :)

[tamaki hiroshi]

.::dakishimetai::.

yes! it’s chiaki-sempai!! while I’m not really partial to this sort of “mellow” jpop I must say I liked this song. I was surprised to learn that it was his 7th single or so – since he is already 28 I assumed he had been singing longer @_@

[嵐]

.::truth::.

.::truthPV::.

.::kaze no mukou e::.

and of course, [嵐]’s soon to be released single [truth], theme to [魔王].  I just love this song, it’s so out of style! like nothing they’ve done before :) and like kat said, the interlude with the violins is amazing. I don’t have [kaze no mukou e]’s mp3 file, since I sort of hear it everyday on TV with the olympics… but you can download the PV instead. the single will go on sale 8/20, releasing a total of three versions – main differences are “only CD with both songs and karaoke”, “CD both songs and karaoke +DVD truth” and “CD both songs and karaoke +DVD kaze”.

[thePILLOWS_piedPIPER]

12 08 2008

the pillows’ last album ’08!!!! I was determined to buy it, if only because it’s the last (and I wasn’t going to buy one I already had…). since I only got it yesterday I haven’t had time to get used to the songs yet – I’m a little slow with that – so I cannot recommend this or that. the first single was [pied piper], but [tokyo bambi] is very popular too.

this is the MF link to the complete album.

and these are [pied piper] and [tokyo bambi] singles respectively.

and the DVD included in the album, featuring [pied piper] PV and a special video entitled [the pillows: texan daily life]





[TRUTHlyrics]

26 07 2008

I found the lyrics to [tRuTh], last [aRaShI] song and [maou]’s opening too. they are only in romaji, sorry. I’ll keep searching see if I can get them in kanji. :3

yurari yureru hikari hitotsu
itami iyasu kotonaku kieru
I TAKE YOUR LIFE FOREVER
YOU TAKE MY LIFE FOREVER
hirari ochiru namida hitotsu
omoi todoku kotonaku kieru
I TAKE YOU LIFE FOREVER

tomaranai toki ni hisomu

modorenai kioku meguru
subete ubawareta kono yo no hate ni

I TAKE YOUR LIFE FOREVER

[kotobaYORItaisetsuneMONO] – aRaShI

10 06 2008

I finished watching [standUP!!] – up-coming post on this dorama, promise – a while ago, but just recently learned that the theme song was [aRaShI]’s. since I intend on translating it soon I’m posting the music video first for those who have never heard of it. I must say the idea of reproducing the series opening so faithfully but with the group members was really surprising. :3

while you patiently wait for the dorama post, enjoy this video:





[asianKUNG-FUgeneration] – afterDARK

10 06 2008

awesome music video by [asianKUNG-FUgeneration]!!! I found it surfing through jmusic blogs and just couldn’t help sharing!

the song in question is [afterDARK] – lyrics below – and it is from anime series [BLEACH]. I think it corresponds to an ending, but don’t ask me which number, I only follow the manga. :3

afterDARK

senaka no kage ga nobikiru sono aima ni nigeru
hagare ochita hana ni mo kizukazu ni tobou
machikado amai nioi ryusen tooku mukou kara
doko ka de kiita you na nakigou

yokaze ga hakobu awai kibou wo nosete
doko made yukeru ka
sore wo kobamu you ni sekai wa yurete
subete wo ubai sa
yume nara sameta dakedo bokura wa
mada nani mo shite inai
susume

mahiru no taida wo tachikiru you na suburide ukabu
umare ochita kumo made miorosu you ni tobou
machikado chi no nioi ryusen tooku mukou kara
doko ka de kiita you na nakigou

DORO DORO nagareru fukaku akai
tsuki ga arawarete furareru sai
detarame na hibi wo tachikiritai
nani kuwanu kao de owaranu you ni

yokaze ga hakobu awai kibou wo nosete
doko made yukeru ka
sore wo kobamu you ni sekai wa yurete
subete wo ubai sa
yume nara sameta dakedo bokura wa
mada nani mo shite inai
susume
