D-51 – No more cry

Finished watching Gokusen 2, and this is the ending song. Will be posting something about the show soon. It is too amusing to let it pass like that. Watch out for it!

NO MORE CRY NO MORE CRY
NO MORE CRY NO MORE CRY
Ashita he NO MORE CRY ashita he NO MORE CRY

Konna ni taisetsu na hito ga chikaku ni iru koto sae mo

Sonna LONELY DAYS kurikaesu no wa mou yame you

Jibun dake dato susande tanda
Sonna kinou no boku ni wa sayonara

Hashiri dasu yo NO MORE CRY NO MORE CRY
Kimi no te mo hiite yukeru
Ashita he NO MORE CRY NO MORE CRY
Kanashimi janaku yorokobi no namida wo nagashi tai

Ano hi no kimi no yasashi sa ni sunao ni nare nai boku wa

Hodoketa mama no kutsu himo ja hashire nai yo
Kono sora wo fukaku suikomou Yeah

We’re not gonna take it

I don’t know, but somehow this song resonates to me. And it seems to be relevant to the current times.

TRF – EZ DO DANCE

This is a catchy tune, video’s old and kinda funny (this single was launched 1993), and I am sure it would be a hit here if Filipinos have heard about TRF (remember Pizzicato Five and Globe?).

If you want to sing along, here’s the romaji lyrics (taken from here):

I can hear my voice ima hajimaru
Midnight time kono basho de
Iku ate ga onaji nakama to subete no uso nugi-saru
Nigete yuku no? Satte yuku no? Odoru kimi wa doko kara
Sasoku yume katari atte kizu nameatteru datenshi
Easy go Easy go egao dake hito-toki no wa wo tsunagu yo

* I’ve got a feeling Tsukinuketeku
machi ga me samasu koro
asa-yake ni kuchi-zuketeru nami mo dakishimeteru
EZ do dance EZ do dance
odoru kimi wo miteru….
EZ do dance EZ do dance
kimi dake wo miteiru….

Hoshii mono wa itsudatte fui ni osou guuzen
Mienai asu totsuzen ni meguriaeru tokimeki
Gozen go ji eien no RULE kawaru shun-kan
Kitto kitto ai nante yoberu mono ja nai kedo

repeat *

Our Future

Yuri Chinen, Hikaru Yaotome, Ryosuke Yamada with BI Shadow at School Kakumei, July 7, 2009. One of the better songs. Too short, though.

WaT- Hava Rava

Here’s another JPop summer-related song, this time from WaT. I know I have blogged about this song before, but the imagery of the video fits the season. So here it is again.

Kinki Kids – Jetcoaster Romance

Since it’s the summer, here’s Kinki Kids’ Jetcoaster Romance. It’s supposed to be a theme for a theme park, but the video is apt for the summer (and for gay moments).

Jet coaster romance
Kinki Kids

Nami wa jetto koosutaa suteki na kaze wo atsumenagara
Kimi wo saraitai ii darou?
Koi wa jetto koosutaa toki no reeru wo hashirinagara
Boku no te wo gyutto daitete

Natsu wa amyuuzumento paaku nureta kami ga odoru tabi
Wow wow niji ga tobichiru
Saafu boodo ni yorikakarinagara miteta
Wow wow umibe no shiruetto
Nazeka so sweet hashaida ato
So sad damarikonde hitomi no oku
Shizumu shinjuu sagashiatta
Nami wa jetto koosutaa suteki na kaze wo atsumenagara
Kimi wo saraitai ii darou?
Koi wa jetto koosutaa toki no reeru wo hashirinagara
Boku no te wo gyutto daitete

Nakamatachi kara hagureta furi shite futari
Wow wow tooi misaki e
Fui ni so sweet hodoke kaketa
So sad bikini no himo naoshite tte
Kogeta senaka yubi ga tereru
Nami wa jetto koosutaa hashiridashitara tomaranai yo
Kisu no hibana wo chirashite
Koi wa jetto koosutaa natsu no shamen wo suberinagara
Nanimo ka mo boku ni makasete

Saa ano tsuki wo megakete
Umi wo kasumete
Bokutachi no tamashii yo maiagare
Kimi wo ai shiteru
Mamoru dareka ga dekita toki ni
Otoko tte tsuyoku kawareru
Nami wa jetto koosutaa suteki na kaze wo atsumenagara
Kimi wo saraitai ii darou?
Koi wa jetto koosutaa toki no reeru wo hashirinagara
Boku no te wo gyutto daitete

The waves are like a jet coaster
As they’re gathering up the beautiful winds
I want to run away with you, it it ok?
Love is like a jet coaster
As we’re running along the rail of time
Grab my hand tightly

The summer is an amusement park
When your wet hair dances
Wow wow
A rainbow scatters
I saw it as I leaned against my surf board
Wow wow
Your silouette against the beach
Is somehow so sweet, after we’ve frolicked
And so sad, you become silent
Deep in your eyes
I searched for a sinking pearl
The waves are like a jet coaster
As they’re gathering up the beautiful winds
I want to run away with you, it it ok?
Love is like a jet coaster
As we’re running along the rail of time
Grab my hand tightly

We pretended to get separated from our friends
Wow wow
Out to the far away promontory
Suddenly you’re so sweet, I almost come undone
And so sad, you ask me to fix your bikini strap
My fingers are akward on your burnt back
The waves are like a jet coaster
If we stop running we won’t be able to stop
We’ll scatter the fireworks of a kiss
Love is like a jet coaster
Sliding down the slope of summer
Somehow, leave everything to me

Well, aim for that moon
Skim the ocean
Our souls dance

I love you
A man changes strongly
When he gets someone to protect
The waves are like a jet coaster
As they’re gathering up the beautiful winds
I want to run away with you, it it ok?
Love is like a jet coaster
As we’re running along the rail of time
Grab my hand tightly

Yume no Tochuu vs. TOKIMEKI DOOBEEDOO

In the previous post, I noted that the b-side song of WaT’s latest single is better than the title song itself. Well, it’s not the first instance. There’s Yume no Tochuu, released January 2008.

Here’s the title song.

And then compare that to the b-side song.

I rest my case.

WaT – Seishun no kagayaki

It’s been three months since WaT‘s latest single, 360C, and yet I cannot find romaji lyrics for the song Seishun no kagayaki. I find the title song to be underwhelming, and the B-song was better. Maybe more people disagree with me, hence the lack of romaji lyrics for Seishun no kagayaki.

Anyway, here is WaT’s Seishun no kagayaki:

Wentz Eiji – Lucky de Happy

It’s time for another wacky video, this time from one half of the JPop boyband WaT, Wentz Eiji.

This is funny. Just look at that ridiculous… costume. And those hideous monstersmascots. And those cute kids.

I hope it’s sunny; let’s let our hearts run free
We’ll find things that are fun and make us happy

Across the mountains, across the sea
Spread your wings and fly

Excited, my heart’s excited

Let’s always smile, whenever, wherever
Just forget the hard times and the sad times

Gather up the pieces of the rainbow
And fly to a world of dreams!
