As usual, their rap lyrics are soo difficult to understand and translate, but the message is clear: nowadays the world is all a social things.
People’s Worth is determined by how many likes they can get, everyone puts every single useless thing on the internet, it’s like you aren’t alive if you don’t share something with the world.

And it really sucks.

But the song is good ^_^

Ayumikurikamaki – Goma Slipper

This is so catchy! I immediately loved it!
But, before giving space to the translation.. let me explain something ^^

This song is all about “gomasuri” that is a slang word that means “apple-polisher” “brown noser”.. especially related to work place. Those people who flatter persons in higher position to get advantages. Some would simply say.. “ass kisser” and it’s how I will translate it in the song 😛
This slang word comes from “goma o suru” that means “to grind sesame seeds”. An hard work that was used to be done by lower ranked persons and not surely by lords 😉
The title is not really clear, I asked to a japanese friend and she said it has no meaning eheh so I am just assuming it’s referred to “gomasuri” and the slippery walk up in the society while kissing asses. In their dance they mimick something like that.
It’s not that important though, the chorus is catchy even without knowing what the hell they are singing 😀

Hell yeah! gomagomasurisurigomasurippaaaaa 😀

English Translation

Bye Bye enjoyed victory
Bye Bye next time I can’t lose

As expected, it’s love isn’t it?

(Love Love Love Love Love)
I must confess this sentiment
Be prepared Darling!

Apink – LUV

This is the japanese version of the song that won every korean music shows for weeks. I think it’s really cute(and sad) just as much as the korean version. Enjoy!

English Translation

You will never fade
It’s painful, my chest feels tight
feelings aren’t transmitted
Tears won’t stop
I simply loved you
I want to see you immediately

Mariya Nishiuchi – Love Evolution

She is releasing her latest double A-side ChuChu/Hello there days, but here her debut song “Love Evolution”!
I admit I have a certain bias for her 😀 Since when she was being Nozomi Sasaki’s back dancer in Lotte Fit’s commercial 😀 She is definitely pretty uh?

English Translation

When we got lost after parting from everyone
your impatient face ended up smiling
Since the very beginning I noticed that
you were looking at me as if you had some kind of feeling

To you who are off guard The Kiss is the Love Potion
the 2 of us in the city on the weekend Love Evolution
Hey! Hey! Love Evolution
Hey! Hey! Love Evolution

Aisha ft. Chehon – Kono Koe Karashite

Another (not recent) song with strong meaning from Naruto. That anime got very good openings and endings for sure!
“koe wo karasu” is an idiom meaning “shouting yourself hoarse”. When you scream so much that your throat hurts.
I translated it “till I have voice” in the song..but you will surely understand what the singer means ^^

English Translation

Regret and sadness have repeated many times
I have been tricked by the weakness of yesterday
There is no time to look back at the past
I overcome the pain of the wounds
I want to try to verify my value

7!! Seven Oops – Lovers

This song brings back memories since it’s the first song I have ever translated ^^
Beside that, it’s an awesome and meaningful song.
2 lovers can reall overcome everything if they stay and fight together.
So sad that “my” lover let the difficulties win instead 😦

English Translation

Now that you shed your tears
crying like a sobbing kid
Even if we can’t see tomorrow anymore, I’ll protect you
I looked up and stared at the summer sky Read the rest of this entry


Happyness – Holyday

English Translation

To da beat y’all and we don’t stop
Check It out now and you don’t stop

Lean forward in a ill vibe
brought to by Happiness and you don’t stop

So hot, with this smile that burns eyes
got you got you, knock out
1 look, who is in line of sight swallow breath
menthal confusion ohoh ohoh
2 times, i make u turn around
back to back to back to back
the second look, for sure,
will spread this pheromone
on and on
non stop beat to the break of dawn

AOA – Mune Kyun

English Translation

Ah Yeah Brave sound
And it goes a little something like this

My heart skips a beat, i am palpitating
My heart skips a beat, oh no

How did it happen to me?
innocent almost as a fist love
suddenly meeting your glance
don’t look anymore
I am gonna become completely red
