大滝裕子 – WANT YOU BACK AGAIN

I haven’t watched any part of the あぶない刑事 (Dangerous Detectives) franchise yet, but I’ve been meaning to. (Instead, I recently watched すもももももも〜地上最強のヨメ〜, even if people who know me well would be surprised with the choice of anime. Eh, I had a history of watching weird parodies of shonen anime.)

Part of why I’m very interested in あぶデカ is its soundtrack. I’m still finding a way to get the OST of the original series (because all I see on レコチョク are albums from もっとあぶない刑事 and あぶない刑事フォーエヴァ.)

From my penchant for songs by ANRI, 角松敏生, 竹内まりや, and others, it’s no surprise that I’d also fall in love with other J-Pop songs from the era.

To my surprise, many of the songs in あぶデカ are entirely in English, with lyrics penned by distinctively anglophone names like リンダ・ヘンリック (Linda Hennrick) and トミー・スナイダー (Tommy Snyder.) Though the first あぶデカ song I was exposed to was 「A MAN LIKE YOU (NEEDS A WOMAN LIKE ME)」 sung by 小山水城, I’ve recently taken a liking for 「WANT YOU BACK AGAIN」 by 大滝裕子.

Lyrics follow below the cut!


歌:大滝裕子
作詞:トミー・スナイダー
作曲:三浦一年

Artist: OOTAKI Yuuko
Lyrics: Tommy Snyder
Composition: MIURA Ichinen

I couldn’t believe it when you told me
The time had come.
I only wanted you to hold me.
Tonight, you run.

What am I,
What am I to do now?
You’ve gone away.
Is it true?
Am I just a victim?
All I gave, you took and left me.

Empty arms, broken heart,
Now my life’s in pieces and I can’t go on
’til I have you back again.

Telephone never rings,
Day and night, I’m waiting for you to call,
Don’t know what I’m living for,
Want you back again.

My memories are filled with pictures
Of me and you.
I thought we’d be the perfect mixture.
I see the truth.

Now you’re gone,
And I don’t believe it.
Deep in my heart,
When I reach,
No one’s there to feel it.
Why do I deserve this treatment?

Empty arms, broken heart,
Now my life’s in pieces and I can’t go on
’til I have you back again.

    • I don’t actually have time to watch anything (Sumomo Momomo was an accident.) If you look at everything I intend to watch, I have 4 years worth of a backlog, haha.

      Does Jojo have… dangerous detectives and an OST with English lyrics, albeit sung in thick Japanese accents?
