Happy Birthday, Yuuhei Satellite! I thought it’s time for a new take on this iconic song as a celebration for my number one favorite circle to be around since a decade. There are countless different versions of this song by now, but the senya one will always be the best due to nostalgia : P
If you’re interested in my interpretation of the song: Everything will eventually end and die, but something will always be left behind, be it memories or emotions. These feelings and memories will eventually disappear too, but remain in a different shape… And while we feel thankful for bad feelings disappearing sooner or later, it’s sad to see good feelings go. But there’s always two sides of a coin!
