English Translation of "Dare Ni Mo Ienee" by B'z

"Dare Ni Mo Ienee/Can't Tell This to Anyone" by B'z (the original lyrics here)

Is there any woman who's prettier than her?
I wonder that, is it true? If there's one, it's awkward (at last)

Even the howl of the puppy sounds dramatic to me
Maybe it's because somebody cast a spell on me, and I can't turn away from it anymore

Just touching your fingers, I feel sparks flying
Maybe I've found something I really love
Can't tell this to anyone

The seaside wind (ha~) Her black hair (ha~) It shakes and from the gaps
I'm being stared at(ha~), now that(ha~), I'll accept everything (flatly)

Even while saying it would never happen, I've been hoping that a day like this will come
How would it be other people's fault

Won't let you go, I never wanna let you go, I don't need anything else
Although some shamefulwords are echoing in my heart
Can't tell this to anyone

I feel my heart beats fast
I feel dizzy too
I'm out of breath
Please help me anyhow

With the mood of the thunder, the clouds begin to move
Whatever happens, it's not a surprise

Won't regret the big step forward that I'm taking
But I wonder what's gonna happen after this, I'm nervous
Can't tell this to anyone

(Can't tell this)

I like this song best in their latest album "MAGIC"!! The song is about a guy who is in love with a girl. But he can't tell about it to anyone since he'd behaved like love wouldn't move him or like that hehe.

Osaka Derby

Today was the Osaka Derby day!! Watched the game at the stadium( ̄ー+ ̄) Cerezo Osaka V.S. Gamba Osaka.!! As the Cerezo was in the Division 2 for the past 3 years :$, it was the first Osaka Derby game in 4 years!! (the Gamba has been in the Division 1, besides, they have been doing really good recently.) The stadium was full with almost 40,000 people!!

Of course, we were cheering up the Cerezo, without a pom pom though :$( ̄ー+ ̄) The two good players, right behind the FW player, Kagawa and Inui (famous for their congenial plays too), played awesome!! Thier technique was just amazing!! Their dribble, pass, well everything, were marvellous!!

So the score!? Well, yes... they really played good... However... I think he could have just caught it... But... It was a draw game. 1-1...┌∵┘ (considering that the Gamba is a really good team, this isn't any bad though!) But the reason I really feel like grrrrrrrrr(゜д゜) is that the goalkeeper Matsui obviously could've caught the ball that was just coming to his hands right straight┐(´ー`)┌ So their lost a point was kinda pretty badly, but their goal scene on the other hand was really awesome!! The pass from Kagawa to Adriano...!! He pinpointed the space forward the Adriano!! The goal was also cool cause it was a pretty difficult angle to get a goal from!!

After the game, at a ramen noodle restaurant, and then at a Mos Burger shop, we were so talking, but they asked me to wear something else at least outside of the stadium┐(´ー`)┌(*´Д`)=з As a Cerezo (cherry bloosom, sakura) fan, but you know!! I had to wear the real pinky shirt┐(´ー`)┌(*´Д`)=з So of course I kept on wearing that one :P :P :P On the train too (H)

B'z LIVE-GYM 2010 "Ain't No Magic" in Osaka!!

I'm still excited yay!! Their show was amazing!! You know I am always sure that any of thier shows are awesome, but I feel like "キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!" while the show, and after the show( ̄ー+ ̄) If you have never seen thier show, well that's... hmm I feel sorry for you :P

B, b, b, but!! It's natural I felt like that this time!! Our seat was... the 2nd row from the stage. right in front of the middle of the stage!!!!!! I think I will never come across this great seat forever at any show... I've spent all the luckness I've had... hehe

When my friend was taking this photo, the staff really told us off :$ (In Japan, taking photos at the live show is strictly prohibited, and even bringing in a camera is forbidden)

It was about 7:15pm, in the big screen, a forest appeared, then lots of buildings... finally they all blew up by an explosion(」 ゜□゜)」 (The sound was too big though\(゜□゜)/)

And... then... キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!
1. Introduction
From above, Tak were appearing down on a board playing the "Introducction" Oh yeah he was wearing his sunglasses( ̄ー+ ̄) The song was arranged a little and he played like 5 minutes (the original is like just 30 seconds).

Koshi came out to the stage!! Koshi also had sunglasses, and he was in a gold court! "Ready Set DIVE!!"キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!

3. Time Flies
The song started right after the previous song's done. Tak, Koshi, Masuda-san, Barry and Shane!! They are all so cool!!

MC : B'z no LIVE-GYM ni Youkoso (Welcome to the B'z LIVE-GYM)
You know they make this set phrase so fun all the time. So yeah this time too!! Koshi was saying "B'z no... B'z no... B'z no... " as usual, then all of a sudden Tak said "B'z no..."!! Also what's funny, Koshi made grimace as Tak prevented into his MC. They did this lovely interaction about three times. Koshi acted good by moving his chin like a kid in a bad mood( ̄ー+ ̄) Both of them were like "Then you say it... if you want..." Finally Koshi shouted "B'z no... LIVE-GYM ni Youkosooooo!" Of course the the audience including me was like "Ahhhheyahhhjhh2ujahhmznf!"

They started playing this song while Koshi was saying "Youkosooooo"キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!! This song's so hard to sing, but Koshi just sung it just like in the CD!! Koshi was moving around at the part "Dare ka to..." right before the guitar solo( ̄ー+ ̄)

5. 今夜月の見える丘に(Konya Tsuki No Mieru Oka Ni/Tonight, at the Hill Where We Can See the Moon)
Tak played a guitar solo song, so I expected the next song would be "TIME" or "Konya Tsuki No Mieru Oka ni". Oh yeah then he really played the introduction of "Konya Tsuki No Mieru Oka Ni" As the song's pretty known among everybody, not only big B'z fans, all the people were so exited to hear the song, my friend was also grinning pretty much( ̄ー+ ̄)

6. PRAY 
増田さんがイントロひきはじめる( ̄ー+ ̄) 2番始める前のふわぁふわぁみたいなとこ稲葉ちゃんと歌ってた( ̄ー+ ̄)そして最後は観客と掛け合い。ほとばしるこの想いのとこだ!! そして次あふれだすこの想いやのに間違えてまたほとばしるって言ってしまって一人でニヤニヤしてたがイシミネは気づいてたんか\(゜□゜)/

Aメロのときはやたらアンプの上乗ってうたってた( ̄ー+ ̄)そして君の大事なとこふるわせられるように~のとこの稲葉の手つき変態やった( ̄ー+ ̄)

13. Mayday!
ステージが動き始める!! そしてイシミネのアルバムの中の一番のお気に入りらしいMayday!がはじまる!! そしてステージごとメンバー全員離れて行く(」 ゜□゜)」 移動していくステージの下からメンバー見える!! まぁこれは観客がMayday!のあとに続いてMayday!って言って緊急事態のとこはOh No!っ叫ぶし、もう12時~とかもう6時~もう時間がないかも~も観客が叫ぶ( ̄ー+ ̄)

English Translation of "Hitori Ja Naikara -Theme Of LIVE-GYM-" by B'z

"Hitori Ja Naikara-Theme Of LIVE-GYM-/Cause We're Not Alone -Theme Of LIVE-GYM-" by B'z (the original lyrics here)

It would be so wonderful if we could continue meeting with only great moments
Ah, everybody becomes lost in thought sometimes

(One! Two! Three! Four!)

Cause we're not alone, we can live on
Even if we're not here tomorrow
Cause we're not alone, we may cry sometimes
I stay by your side

Let's shout here in this town (the city name) that reminds us of our dreams

I'll very soon translate other songs from "MAGIC"!! Probably I'll start with my favorite tracks( ̄ー+ ̄)

long time no see, my fans(▼∀+▼)

It's been a long time since I posted here. Sorry my fans :P
Anyway I've finished my applications to universities (to only two schools though (」 ゜□゜)」, and I might fail┐(´ー`)┌) So yeah now I'll translate the songs from the awesome album "MAGIC" very soon!

But firstly, I'll translate the short song, "Hitori Ja Naikara -Theme Of LIVE-GYM-". Well, I don't like this song much. It doesn't sound cool at all. But maybe I'll like it when I heard at the show. (Well, this song will be played when I leave the dome after the show)

Wow yeah, the show I'm gonna go is almost in a month now! Can't stop grinning cause I can't stop imagine their performance! ( ̄ー+ ̄) (I'm gonna go see thier LIVE-GYM on Feburary 24th in Osaka!)

School Visit Tour

Yesterday, I visited my high school. Well, it's last January when I graduated from the school. So did I visit the school for the first time in 11 months? Thanks to somebody's carelessness, it was for the first time just in 2 months :$ In October, with some gangs, I already visited the school to get some certification papers for the applications. B,b, but! I forgot to get some of the papers :$ So I had to go get what I didn't get when I visited in October.

The school is far away from the station. So I walked up the mountain (my high school is located at the top of a mountain( ̄ー+ ̄)) Btw, it was snowy( ̄ー+ ̄)

After I got the papers, I talked with teachers. I heard some secrets among teachers(▼∀+▼)

Steven Tyler's leaving the band!?

It seems Joe Perry almost officially announced that Steven's leavening Aerosmith and he is calling for a new singer for Aerosmith...

Well I can't believe it...
I really can't believe two things...
The two have played music together for over 40 years even though they had some discords some times, and now are they really getting apart??
Also, I don't know why I am not being called for the new singer by Joe... I didn't change my email address, so why the hell am I not getting an invitation from him??

You know 3 my favorite bands in the world are B'z firstly, and then the rest is Aerosmith and El Canto del Loco. And now Aerosmith and ECDL are not doing any activity... and one of them is collapsing... This is so sad┐(´ー`)┌

To make my feelings better, B'z are talking about thier future that they will continute thier activity at least for 10 years more, in the magazine that I just bought today. The interview was quite good. Also, the cover of the book was so cool.

The poster of this is going to be the prize for the readers. 100 people can get it. I will of course apply for the lottery( ̄ー+ ̄)

Btw, Shane (the drummer of B'Z!) became open to fans on Facebook. He posts some photos as well as on his blog. I found this one on his page. This photo's from Hollywood Rock Walk that B'z received the award.

English Translation of "SAHARA" by Slash feat. Koshi Inaba from B'z

The official release day of this song, collaborated by Slash, the former guitarist of GUNS 'N ROSES and Koshi Inaba from B'z is tomorrow. But I could get the single today. It was a little bit sad Koshi didn't sing the song in English despite his great English. But he, in the interview in the magazine that also I got today, said he thought it wouldn't be good if his English song was in a lot of English songs by native English singers.

So here's the English translation of "SAHARA".
You can watch the song here!

"SAHARA" by Slash feat. Koshi Inaba from B'z
(*)Your teeth a little crookedly aligned, and your sticking touch
The light of the big sign in the outside of window I was looking at

Sorry I don't remember anything about you (Anything about you)
It's been gone away, this and that (this and that)
Tonight, somehow I'm more thirsty than usual

Before the dawn, you fell asleep, it was surely you, not me
With lots of glib words having been carried away, being clumsy, yeah it was me

Sorry I don't remember anything about you (Anything about you)
Covered with sand, this and that (this and that)
A red-hot wind is blowing inside of my mind

It was a mass of burning young jealousy
I really wanted to have you

Sorry I don't remember anything about you (Anything about you)
It's gone away, this and that. (this and that)
Forget myself and go on a spree and hurt somebody

I can't let it go... anything about you (Anything about you)
It has ruined everything, this and that (this and that)
Shiny days are being buried forever

(*)This part sounds odd, but it was kinda strange in the original lyrics in Japanese too, and all these parts are for the chorus part. "I don't remember anything about you" "including your teeth, your touch, the light of the sign..."

My first SAT Tests tomorrow, but...

But you know I have neved finished the preparation for the exams... Well the Math section in the Reasoning Test, it's quite easy, like what you learn at primary school in my country. But the English sections!! The words still are too much unfamiliar to me. Firstly it was like "Oh I don't know 95% of the words in the test".

And so so you know how it's like now? I still don't get most of the words in the test┐(´ー`)┌ I first got inspired for the preparation and remembered some words, and then somehow lost the inspiration┐(´ー`)┌ So I was just being real lazy.

And then, like I wrote in this post, I found that I really have to work on the vocab study, so I did... For 3 days :$ and then became lazy again expecting that I would finish 5000 words in the three days before the exams. Yeah so I restarted the study just a few days ago... キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!! It didn't work like how I expected(」 ゜□゜)」 I'm still at the half of the vocab book having the tests tomorrow.

I think I won't do well this time. But I also found I will be able to make it so great next time because I have gotten great inspiration that I have never had before this big one. I'll put out all of what I have now on the exams tomorrow, but it's never likely to be great scores. But I will get over 790, out f 800, on all the 4 or 5 exams next time( ̄ー+ ̄)!!キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!

Do you know how you say failling for two years in Japanese? It's Nirou. And if for three years, it's called Sanrou or Saburo. Ohhhh, Saburo!! One of the greatest players for the "Marines" is "Saburo"!! (▼∀+▼)

Does anyone want me as an arranger?? (▼∀+▼)

★B'z on Piano★ "MY LONELY TOWN (Ballad Version) -Koh Style-"

Here I mixed my playing piano and playing keyboard, the slow strings sound. At the middle, I'm acting a rock singer, like Koshi:P I posted this video on YouTube as usual, but also posted on Niconico Video, a Japanese video sharing website where many harsh comments can be posted on the video. Well, really on the video, like the comments displayed on the video at the part the criticians directed. The other video I posted on Niconico Video, I got some comments like "Gross, Die!! You idiot!". Definitely I will get same kinds of comments this time. Avavavavavava.

Oh and, I already watched some more episodes of "That '70s Show". I'm gonna write about them later~

My "Don't Leave Me" on Piano and Vocalolol

★B'z on Piano★ "Don't Leave Me -Koh Style-" (The 1st Verse+α)

I'm not responsible if your ears get broken with the romantic ending of this video.


★B'z on Piano★ "STARDUST TRAIN -Koh Style-"

This song's as good as MY LONELY TOWN(▼∀+▼)

My iPod is broken!!

Since yesterday, my iPod has been wrong. Like every time I connect my iPod to the computer, my iTunes anyhow freezes. I restored the iPod... But it still didn't work. Well, the syncing started as well, but feezed after a while again. But if I disconnect it and connect it again, sometimes it worked. So I repeatedly disconnected and connected to the computer. Then... my iPod started having this screen┐(´ー`)┌

According to the official support page, I just have to put my iPod into Disk Mode, but I can't set so... even though I've tried many times following the indication.
Anyway, so if the President of Apple Company is seeing this, please give me some apology and give me another iPod, wit 500G space... Then you know, I will forgive you...

English Translations of the New Messages from B'z Members

TAK : Sorrowful "MY LONELY TOWN". Please listen to it on long autum nights by all means!!

Koshi : Throughout this autumn, listen to the song recalling your own "MY LONELY TOWN"...

Got the new single "MY LONELY TOWN" by B'z!!

Although the official release date is tomorrow, since my near CD store, just like most other stores, had "Flying Get System", I bought the B'z new single "MY LONELY TOWN" today! Of course, the limited edition with the DVD of the music video. I like this song so much. I think it will be in my 5 favorite B'z songs out of hundreds of thier songs!

The only sad part was that in the studio sound, Koshi doesn't scream at the end of the song unlike at live shows. I will have to do that myself :P So if you find a guy's screaming like crazy on the street, or on the train, maybe it's me listening to the song, especially when the last part is being played :P
