mwah!mwah!mwah!

How is everyone! ? Well, what I want to talk about this time is that I created a new video. I can’t ask a professional because I don’t have money, but I managed to create it by myself. I made a promotional video for my original song “mwah!mwah!mwah!”.

This time I would like to talk about the title of this song “mwah!mwah!mwah!”.

The Japanese lyrics say “chu!chu!chu!” and the sound that Japanese make when kissing their cheek lightly is described as”chu!chu!chu!”. I was worried about how to translate this” chu!chu!chu!” into a foreign language. After doing some research, I learned that in foreign countries, light kisses are expressed using the onomatopoeic word”mwah!mwah!mwah!”, so I named the song “mwah!mwah!mwah!”.

However, in this song, not only the onomatopoeia “chu!chu!chu!” but also the onomatopoeia “chulu!chulu!chulu!” This “chulu!chulu!chulu!” is used by Japanese people when they eat noodles. Lol  The essence of my song is to enjoy the rhyme of”chu!chu!chu!” and “chulu!chulu!chulu!” .”mwah!mwah!mwah!” doesn’t rhyme.

So, “mwah!mwah!mwah!” doesn’t convey the fun of what I’m singing, but if you watch the video, you’ll understand what I wanted to sing to some extent.

Why don’t you take a look at the video? I think you don’t understand the lyrics, but the song is good. I look forward to talking with you about the differences in onomatopoeia in different countries.

ON MY WAY BACK HOME AFTER WORK

Hello everyone, how are you all doing? It’s midsummer in Japan now. I want to drink a cold beer right now, but I’m going to put up with it a little and try to write this blog.

Two times ago, I reported that I created an album titled “Tonight”, and this time I’ve completed an album titled “ON MY WAY BACK HOME AFTER WORK”! Amazing in a short time! You may think that, but in fact, I was stuck at home due to the corona restrictions, so I used that time to put together these songs.

This album is an unprecedented and difficult work, and it may be better to say that it is a jazz song rather than a pop song. There is a lot of tension. smile

There are 9 songs in total, and each song is made in a different way, but I would like to focus on the title song of this time, “ON MY WAY BACK HOME AFTER WORK”. This song is about the frustration of my life, and the lyrics are about making a man cry. You can think of this crying man as me.

Is it okay for a grown man to shed so many tears?
It’s fine! Whether you’re an adult or a child, I think it’s best for human beings to cry when they want to cry. Everyone has times when they want to cry.

Would you like to cry with me while listening to this song? You won’t be able to stop crying. Your tears won’t stop so much that they will become rivers, go down mountains, and eventually become seas. That’s why this song “ON MY WAY BACK HOME AFTER WORK” is a sad song. Please listen!

I haven’t sold it yet. smile

sweltering night

Hello everybody. It has been a while. I wonder if there are people reading this blog, but I will proceed without worrying about it. smile

As if the corona turmoil is coming to an end, a large number of foreign tourists have been pouring into Japan recently. I’ve covered this topic many times, but sometimes foreigners who come to Japan, especially those who come to Tokyo this summer, are very surprised.

It means that the weather in Tokyo is unreasonably hot. Not only is the temperature high, but the humidity is also high, and the stagnant air between Tokyo’s buildings is hell on earth. Lol In Japan, these hot and humid nights are called sweltering nights. And my original song also has the same song, “Nettaiya”.

This time, I started streaming distribution of the album “MOON” containing this “sweltering night”. I think you can feel how hot and uncomfortable the tropical nights in Japan are. And to commemorate the streaming distribution, I also made a video of “Nettaiya”. I’m wearing a Japanese fox mask and playing the guitar. lol Instead of using a pick to play the guitar, I tried using a rice scoop that Japanese people use when serving rice. LOL Like in this video, would you like to sit on your knees with me and sing “Nettaiya”?

A fox ghost may appear in your hotel room in Japan! No, you may have just seen an apparition when you were sleep deprived due to the excessive heat of summer nights in Japan.

For the time being, all 10 songs of the album “MOON” have started streaming! Please listen to it!

tonight

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since I last posted. It’s the rainy season in Japan now, and it’s raining outside today. With the El Niño phenomenon occurring off the coast of Peru this year, Japan may have a cool summer this year.

Japan may get cold, but this topic is very hot. After a long time, I created a new musical work. The title of this work is “Tonight”. Cool!

In fact, this work is a band version of songs that only came with guitar and piano singing. It contains 10 songs, and there are still two works in the same format. Assuming that the remaining two works will be released someday, I would like to introduce this work called “Tonight”.

The idea behind the song was all conceived in my early twenties, and it took decades of musing in my head to finally bring it to the surface. So it’s not a light thing that I came up with in a few days, but a heavy one. The work “Tonight” is a collection of heavy songs with lyrics that are as bright as possible.

I live in Japanese, so I sing in Japanese, but even if you don’t understand Japanese, you’ll be excited to hear it. Would you like to sing a Japanese song together? If you don’t know what I’m singing, please email me. I will teach you!

Ah! However, this work has only been made as an independent CD and has not been uploaded on the web! It’s a pity that we can’t share this new release with you. What should I do?

Well, I don’t think there are many people who are interested in my music, and I’m not in a rush to have people listen to it on streaming services, so please be patient. lol: You may be able to hear it somewhere someday. Or if you send me an email, I will send the music data.

Anyway, a new work called “Tonight” was completed! Happy When I die, let’s go to the afterlife with these songs. smile

Why don’t you come for a walk in Inokashira Park?

In my previous article, I wrote that the number of foreign tourists has been increasing in Nakano Broadway, a shopping district near where I live, and I would like to introduce another place where such foreign tourists are increasing. It is a park called Inokashira Park in Kichijoji.

In fact, I am singing a song in this park. (Laughs) I am singing an original song that I wrote myself. (Laughs) Singing in the park was suspended during the Corona disaster, but recently the ban was lifted, so I have been singing there again.

Inokashira Park is a large park in the suburbs of Tokyo, and before Corona, foreign tourists used to come to the park to take a walk. I sang to these foreign tourists, and a Chinese tourist even bought one of my CDs.

Since I started singing in Inokashira Park again, I decided to make a prominent “Original Song” banner and put it up in the place where I sing. So when you come for a walk in Inokashira Park, you will know immediately where I am singing.

It is no fun to come to Japan and enjoy only the famous things! Traveling is fun because you experience a world you don’t know. When you come to Japan, why don’t you stop by Inokashira Park and listen to my original Japanese songs? It may seem strange at first because it is not a famous Japanese song that only imitates Western songs, but once you get used to it, you will be fine. It’s a good song! The marker is a banner that says “Original Songs”. I am supposed to be humming along with the birds of the forest.

I am poor, so if you like the song, please go and give some money! (Laughs)
