角松敏生 – 134

Although Toshiki Kadomatsu and Tsunku (Mitsuo Terada) are of different genres, they are probably my favourite Japanese male vocalists (in Tsunku’s case, I’m referring to his solo work.)

I was surprised to learn that Kadomatsu’s “134” is a relatively recent song, part of his 2010 release, “Citylights Dandy”. Unlike some other artists his age, whose singing voices noticeably “age”, Toshiki Kadomatsu’s more recent work has his signature mid-80’s vocals, while having instrumentation that may appeal to a more modern, albeit refined audience.

I like what I can understand of this song’s lyrics, so I may translate it in the future.

交わる空の色鮮やかに
駆け抜けてゆく
窓に照りつける太陽の欠片
沈む僅かな時
始まる夜のときめきを連れて
残り陽さえも彼方消えてゆく
瞬く間に変わる幻のように

海鳴りが聞こえた 耳を澄ませ
不思議な輝きを
そっと心に忍ばせたら
あの詩も聴こえてくるだろう きっと

宵の光が灯りだしたら
あなたのことを思い出していた
気がつけばどこか遠く届かぬこと
海づたいの道を辿ればそこには
夏の出来事 甦る全て
偶然のように出逢えるのならば

波しぶきが見えた 瞳閉じて
記憶の移ろいを
ただの想い出にしなければ
あの日々は今もそこにあるだろう

瞬く間に変わる幻のように

海鳴りが聞こえた 耳を澄ませ
不思議な輝きを
そっと心に忍ばせたら
あの詩も聴こえてくるだろう きっと
