Babymetal – Give Me Chocolate

BABYMETAL is a Japanese girls metal vocal and dance group, consist of Suzuka Nakamoto (lead vocal), Moa Kikuchi, and Yui Mizuno. They are also known as Su-Metal, MoaMetal, and YuiMetal.

Their style of music is a mix of J-Pop idol and heavy metal. Su-Metal is 16 year old this year and the other two are 14 year old, where Suzuka Nakamoto as “graduated” from the female idol group Sakura Gakuin.

The opening for this song is heavy metal as hell. But as the lyrics kick in, J-Pop idol stuff came in. I’m totally hooked onto this sing! And not to mention the girls are kinda cute, in a none-pedo way.

Here’s BABYMETAL’s Give Me Chocolate music video and lyrics.

Remioromen is a Japanese rock band comprised of Ryota Fujimaki (vocals, guitar), Keisuke Maeda (bass) and Osamu Jinguji (drums) in 2000..

“Konayuki” is taken from Remioromen’s third studio album, Horizon, released in May 2006..

In MTV Video Music Awards Japan 2006 (MTV VMAJ 2006) Remioromen Music Video “Konayuki” won The Best Pop Video Award.

If you are an avid fan of Japanese drama (J-dorama) then you would have known the meaning of 1 Litre of Tears..

1 Litre of Tears (Ichi Rittoru no Namida) is a Japanese drama about a girl who was diagnosed with an incurable degenerative disease at 15, but was able to continue her life until her death at the age of 25..

The drama is based on a real story of a girl named Aya who suffered from a disease called spinocerebellar degeneration – a terrible disease where the cerebellum of the brain gradually deteriorates to the point where the victim cannot walk, speak, write, or eat..

Those who have watched this drama would definitely agree with me that you could have cried one litre of tears..It is that saddening..

It’s a very sad drama, yet it’s very inspiring to those who have lost hope in their life..

The drama starring Erika Sawajiri (Aya Ikeuchi), Ryo Nishikido (Haruto Aso), and Kenichi Matsuyama (Yuji Kawamoto of Death Note’s L fame)..

This song, “Konayuki” by Remioromen is an insert song of the drama..It adds up the dramatic effect and it’s a very nice song..

Whenever I go to Red Box I would definitely choose this song to sing, and they provides romanized lyrics..

Here is the romanized lyrics and music video of “Konayuki” by Remioromen..

Remioromen – Konayuki

konayuki mau kisetsu wa itsumo surechigai
hitogomi ni magiretemo onaji sora miteru noni
kaze ni fukarete nitayou ni kogoeru noni

boku wa kimi no subete nado shittewa inai darou
soredemo ichiokunin kara kimi wo mitsuketayo
konkyo wa naikedo honki de omotterunda

sasai na iiai mo nakute onaji jikan wo ikitenado ikenai
sunao ni narenai nara yorokobi mo kanashimi mo munashiidake

konayuki nee kokoro made shiroku somerareta nara
futari no kodoku wo wakeau koto ga dekitano kai?

boku wa kimi no kokoro ni mimi wo oshiatete
sono koe no suru hou e sutto fukaku made
orite yukitai soko de mou ichido aou

wakari aitai nante uwabe
wo nadeteita nowa boku no hou
kimi no kajikanda te mo nigiri
shimeru koto dakede tsunagatteitanoni

konayuki nee eien wo mae ni amarini moroku
zaratsuku asufaruto no ue shimi ni natte yukuyo

konayuki nee toki ni tayori naku kokoro wa yureru
soredemo boku wa kimi no koto mamori tsuzuketai

konayuki nee kokoro made shiroku somerareta nara
futari no kodoku wo tsutsunde sora ni kaesu kara

Glay – I’m In Love, For Japan Earthquake Relief #prayforjapan

Last Friday on 11th March 2011, Japan suffered their worst earthquake so far, a 8.9 magnitude earthquake..

Japan, being one of the most advanced country in terms of technology and also city development, handled the massive earthquake pretty well, considering one of the popular countries that have earthquakes..

Unfortunately, the 8.9 magnitude earthquake caused a massive tsunami hit on Northeast of Japan, Sendai..

From earthquake leads to tsunami and then radiation due to meltdown of nearby nuclear plants..Tragedy maximum :(

On 25th June 2011, the 10th MTV Video Music Awards Japan has become MTV Video Music Aid Japan, serves as an awareness and fund-raising campaign of some sort benefiting the Japanese Red Cross..

Here’s a song from Glay called “I’m In Love”, an old song back somewhere in the last 90′s..

Let’s show some love to Japan and I don’t want the anime industry to die!

Here are 2 videos, one from the GLAY Survival Expo 1999 at Makuhari Messe, gathered a large crowd of 200,000 people, making it the largest concert ever held by one single act in Japan..

Another video is at GLAY 15th Anniversary Special 2009, The Great Vacation at the Nissan Stadium, a two-day event which have gathered 150,000 people..

Chiisa na pokke ni gyutto tsumateita
Kusa no nioi no takaramomotachi wa kakurembo
Hodoketa kutsuhimo musunde kureta kimi o nose
Manatsu no takasugiru kumo ni mukatte shouryokou

[FROM] LONELY DAYS WE CAN FLY
Mabuta no ura ni wa ano hi no bokura
[FROM] LONELY NIGHTS WE CAN FLY
Itsu demo nani ka ni kizutsuiteta ne

I’m just in love I’m just in love
I’m just in love oh Singin’ my life

Furuita arubamu hiraita boku wa
Wakakatta futari to ima ja toshi mo sou kawaranai
Shouwa to iu no jidai ni bokura o kakaete hashitta
Sonna anata no ikigai ga shimite nakitaku naru

[FROM] LONELY DAYS WE CAN FLY
Yutaka na hibi ni natsukashiku omou
[FROM] LONELY NIGHTS WE CAN FLY
OK! THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE

I’m just in love I’m just in love
I’m just in love oh Singin’ my life

WE WILL ROCK YOU WORDS FROM HEAVEN! (6x)
