The Real Good Japanese Music: Robust and Motivational lyrics from SUPER BEAVER

In this article, I’m writing and introducing Japanese real good music. Today, I’d like to introduce you to “SUPER BEAVER”. There would be no doubt if you say you like the band now, you would be thought as you have really good music taste among these days.

The band is kind of popular, but not that popular like the Japanese mainstream rock bands. However, the band offers many great songs to not only TV drama programs or smash-hit movies based on a very popular comic “Tokyo Revengers”.

The band is famous for its simple but very strong lyrics with great rock music harmony. Here is a music clip of “予感(Yokan: a hunch)”.

予感のする方へ 心が夢中になる方へ
Choose the way of a hunch the way you would be crazy
正解なんて あってないようなものさ 人生は自由
True answers are nothing Life is free
今 予感のする方へ 会いたい自分がいる方へ
Now choose the way of a hunch To the place where the ideal you would be

And lately, their latest song sold out, the title is “Tokyo”. In this song, they seem to be appreciating their Tokyo where they were born and raised, and they celebrate people who they’ve met in Tokyo by now. So, Tokyo would be a metaphor for everywhere of our precious places in our life. Anyway, the lyrics really struck my heart.

愛されたい 心の奥 望む僕にも 愛する人
Wanna be loved I feel deep inside in my heart But I still have someone I love
愛されていて欲しい人がいる なんて贅沢な人生だ
There are people I want them to be loved How luxurious life is it

Telling the exact Japanese nuance is a bit difficult, but hope you could enjoy something of these SUPER BEVER songs. Thank you for reading and see you again!

Real Good Japanese Songs: “Kaerou” by Fujii Kaze

Today, I’d like to talk about music especially the real good Japanese music. Perhaps Maroon 5 or Lady Gaga is not the real good music for the most of Americans. You must know there are much more, sometimes hidden, great songs or artists. Of course this is my taste and choice, and I am not supposed to argue with another Japanese. I’m actually a bit confident in the real good songs, so if you feel like the song, I’m really appreciated.

Today’s Song: “Kaerou” by Fujii Kaze

If you are familiar with Japanese culture, he is the one who you should remember in today’s J music scene. He has a great talent to make beautiful songs and gorgeous but catchy and light songs. More and more companies try to offer him to collaborate with commercials. The most famous one was with HONDA’s new car commercial song of “Kirari”.

Just by my intuition but nearly 60% of the Japanese youth recognize him these days, he is still a new pop star in today’s J music scene. But this song “Kaerou” ,meaning let’s go home in English, is a bit hidden but one of his early masterpiece which will be accepted and acclaimed from the every generation and gender in Japan because the song is about “death” or “forgiveness”. That’s why there are many comments from 50s or over 60s people’s comments just aside from teenagers ones.

Like another his songs, you would find yourself in peaceful mind after you finish listening his songs. But this one is a bit outstanding. I cried naturally and felt so fulfilling with this song. I have no idea why this young early 20s guy could write and sing this awesome song, you can really understand how beautiful and great singer he is. All right, the video contains English subtitles, and if you liked it, it’s my pleasure. I also put the English lyrics down below. Please enjoy one of my fav songs♪

You are melting into the sunset

I am fading into the sunrise

If our paths never cross again,

then, that is the way it is

You’re turning on the lamp

I’m searching for the light

We both have nothing to fear

nothing to lose

We both have nothing at all in the first place

See you, see you again

Those boy’s eyes aren’t innocent anymore,

Those evening bells are ringing out

but can’t be heard anymore

That is, that is almost like

Everything seems to be over

Far from it, we’ve got a long way to go

and I’ll never forget…

Ah, let’s forget everything and go home

Ah, let everything flow away and go home

Though that scar hurts

this thirst never be quenched,

it doesn’t matter anymore, let’s blow ’em all away

Let’s go home with a nice breeze

Let’s go home with gentle rain

What is the use of hating each other

I’m, I’m gonna be the first one to forget

You are worried about the future

I am still attached to the past

This is our last time,

I’m supposed to be a god,

but still, we’re too much human

I looked at the world without me

From above, and I found out

It keeps on turning exactly the same as always

That made me feel easy somewhat

See you, see you again

We said farewell right before the highway

Leaving all hustle-bustle behind, I walk alone

Taking, All my life was about taking

And not a bit of giving

Not knowing the meaning of this life I’ve lived

Ah, let’s give everything and go home

Ah, with empty hands, let’s go home

What we can give is just what we’re given

Let’s be thankful and be honored

I’m waiting for you, let’s go home

Let’s go home where happiness never ends

What can we take with us when we leave this world?

Let go of the burdens we’re carrying, one by one

What is the use of hating each other?

I’m, I’m gonna be the first one to forget

Ah, how am I going to live from today
