album: 色は匂へど散りぬるを (Iro wa Nioedo Chirinuru o)

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!

lyrics: かませ虎 (kamase-tora)

circle: 幽閉サテライト (Yuuhei Satellite)

Now that Yuzuki Risa left Yuuhei Satellite, I don’t think they’ll ever release this sample song on a future album. Which is a shame, because it’s really beautiful and so much unlike their usual style! I still hope I’m wrong though and you’ll be able to enjoy this song one day as well.

arrangement: 神奈森ユウ (Kanamori Yuu)
lyrics: かませ虎 (kamase-tora)

circle: 幽閉サテライト (Yuuhei Satellite)

The lyrics are really good on their own, and if you listen to the song without understanding the lyrics, it sounds nice. But I don’t think I’ve ever heard a song whose lyrics are so disconnected with the mood of the overall song LOL. Well… I guess you’ll see yourself when this song gets put on the new Yuuhei album.
