I have been really busy with work, I prefer sleeping than doing blog or even opening my social network online. Here goes my top 6 favorite Japanese songs of all time. :) Not in chronological order.
Yes! - Eri Kitamura
I heard this song from my brother Leo when he was randomly playing anime songs from his phone. It felt catchy and I asked where this song came from and who sang it. Later, I found myself playing it over and over. It is about friendship and its perks but it can also pertain to lovers, not giving up in trying times; saying yes always, being there etc.
"daisuki da yo yes!
kimi no egao smile! mata ashita mo misete ne
watashi wa yes!
itsudemo itsumo kimi no mikata da yo"
"I love you, yes!
Your smile, smile! Show it to me again tomorrow.
I am, yes!
Always and forever your ally."
Shounen Heart - Home Made Kazoku
The first song that I have heard from HMK was Everything She Gave Me, from a certain show in Animax. Later on, I searched for other songs that they had made. I stumbled upon this song which later became my favorite because of its catchy tune and awesome lyrics. The song reminds a man who is remembering his old days, being hyped, being bright and the like. He wants to feel and relive what he has felt before.
"Kuchizusamu MERODII ga omoidasasete kureru
(Back in the Days)
MEMORII wa doremo kagayaite bakari iru (So)
You gotta remember ima mo yume no kakera wo te ni
Ano goro no you ni (Come on!)
Hikari hanatsu shounen no HAATO"
"Can you remember the melody I used to hum?
(Back in the Days)
Every memory is shining brightly (So)
You gotta remember, even now you have a fragment of a dream in your hand Like back then (Come on!)
It shines like a young boy's heart"
San Francisco - Midicronica
Samurai Champloo is probably the most sensible anime that I have ever watched. I am not at all upset that I wasted my time watching it, add to that, the ending is divine. The song talks about remembering what you have been through inspite of the fact that you are moving on. The scenes of the anime blended well with this anime, making it one of my favorites.
"Shinya kara asa kusunda kyoukaisen
mata chigau kotae sagasu kotai
chikyuu no ue aruku
shuuki wa ano hakusen no mukou ni aru taiyou"
"Walking from a midnight to morning,
I started to look for a different answer suddenly
I want to put urgent message across
That area with a wavy border"
My SunShine - ROCK'A'TRENCH
I encountered this song while I was watching Meichan No Shitsuji, one of the few Jdoramas that I have watched. One of the cheesiest song that I have ever heard when you read the lyrics, though the melody doesn't sound that cheesy. It is a catchy song, add to that the jdorama was superb. The lyrics will make you melt. :)
'Kimi no soba ni iru
Kaze no asa mo koorisouna tsukiyo mo
Sousa bukiyouna boku ni dekiru koto
Mabataki suru tabi katachi kaeru kumo mitaina kimi dake
Zutto mitsumete asu wo kakenuketainda
Aimaina kotoba nante kokoro wo kumorasu dake
Massugu ni naite waratte yo
"I will be by your side
Be it a windy morning
Or a freezing moonlit night
Always I've wanted to run through the morning that I'm staring at Vague words can only cloud the heart
Cry or laugh as much as you want to
I will continue to protect you"
Native Dancer - Sakanaction
While browsing for some videos at YouTube, I clicked on a peculiar name of a band, sakanaction which means fish action. The beginning sounds were simple yet pleasing to the ear. I continued watching the video and eventually it...
