Long time no post!
The second year of medical school has been both enjoyable and turbulent, especially because I’ve been relapsing into illness. I am typing this while “relaxing” from studying for my Microbiology exam. I’m fearful for my standing in quite a few subjects, but I’m happy to say I can put Clinical Pathology behind my back.
Paris Match (as in パリス・マッチ, the Japanese jazz group) has always been a favourite of mine, especially when I’m in more wistful moods. I haven’t listened to their songs in a while, but decided to put them on my phone on a whim.
I love their more upbeat songs, but CDG always had charm in its simplicity.
I can’t find the original version of the song uploaded anywhere – searching for it may direct you to the website of Paris Match (not related to the group behind this song) or a YouTube cover.
I’d love to sing a cover of this song, myself – the instrumentation is not extravagant, so hopefully I can figure out how to recreate it in a DAW (or finally get around to learning how to play musical instruments.)
“CDG” most probably refers to “Charles de Gaulle” as in the airport, due to the song’s lyrical content. I definitely imagine playing this while waiting in the airport.
As usual, lyrics follow under the cut! I was able to countercheck the kanji with kget.jp, since Mojim doesn’t have lyrics for this song yet.
This time around, I tried to translate the song.
I highly encourage you to notify me of any errors, as I do not speak Japanese.
