Another live video, with yet a different instrument! ^_^ Me playing the bass part and singing to Fuwa Fuwa Time (from K-ON!)

I love this song and I love Mio XD I didn’t have a proper Mio cosplay, but I wore something that looked like an outfit Sawa-chan-sensei might make the girls wear 😛 If your speakers don’t have very good bass, you might not be able to hear my playing very well 😦 But it’s definitely there (run it through a bass amp or something XD)

Anyways, I had a lot of fun doing this, and I hope you enjoy it! Next up, Don’t Say Lazy, perhaps? ^o^

Another anime song!!! I wanted to cover this song maybe like, a year and a half ago, but at that point I was sure I could not actually pull off the style of this song. I still don’t feel fully confident, but I definitely haven figured out better how to control my singing now, so I decided to go ahead and sing it ^_^

Alas it’s not perfect, and apparently the instrumental balance comes out VEEEERY different depending on the particular set of speakers/headphones, but what can you do…

I’m sort of now searching around for songs (new or old) that I can re-record and make nice, because I’m very tempted to audition for Supercell. However… the fact that I have to write a mini-essay in Japanese, and my lack of confidence, and the overall impracticle-ness might deter me. We’ll see XD I spent more time than usual on this song because I’m considering using it as one of my demos, since I have very few polished recordings from more recent and I’d like to show off my more improved singing rather than my previous weaker voice XD

I’ve recently started watching K-ON! and fell in love with it right away, especially the songs the girls sing! I thought it would be fun to do an English version of the ED, “Don’t Say ‘Lazy'”, so here it is!!

Translation help from Deciphered Melody

These English lyrics are 100% my own, so you may use them if you want, please attribute them to me if you’re planning to use them for something ^.^

And maybe if I get unlazy enough (:-P) I’ll do an English version of “Cagayake! Girls” as well, since I’ve been kind of wanting to that also ^.^

************************************
Please don’t say “You are lazy,”
Because I’m really crazy!
Even the gentlest swans
Are kicking up a storm, fighting hard beneath the surface.
I will be true to myself,
I’ll take on what you dish out.
My future’s bright ahead,
So that’s why I can stop, take a break for just a second.

I’ll take a look, and I’ll confirm my aspiration.
X on the map, I’ll mark my final destination.
If I can find, a shortcut I could get there faster
Or gimme wings, they’re great ’cause I could tot’lly blast there.

Oh damn! I just broke my nail.
I’ll superglue it, all right!
Just doing that, my heart is really taking flight.
You have to know what’s precious to you.
You gotta take care of them.
To open your heart to others you must believe that you’re a diamond!

Please don’t say “You are lazy,”
Because I’m really crazy!
Even the fiercest hawks
Take care to hid their claws, keep their talons in close to them.
I try to search for my dream,
It’s so hard that I might scream!
I’m trying to find myself,
So don’t expect my pitch to be polished to perfection.

You can’t predict all of the things that I’ll accomplish.
I’ll break them all, your meters can’t take how strong I wish.
‘Cause when I dream, I always dream with all my power,
And when I sleep, I put my all in every hour.

Oh hey! I just lost some weight,
But in my joy I just ate.
Why’d I do that? I’m beat by pressure I’ can’t take.
But right away I’ll bounce right back up,
And aim for something lower.
I’m flexible, I can adapt… my Kabuki dance will conquer!

Please don’t say “You are lazy,”
Because I’m really crazy!
Even the vainest birds
Appreciate and cheer when they come across a beauty.
I want to better myself,
To bring my beauty full out.
Because the path is rough,
I’m strengthening my will, gonna win no matter what comes!

Oh damn! What’s this, a Red Point?!
Hey yes! I barely cleared it!
I feel so great, I feel like I’m omnipotent!
You gotta love yourself, yeah that’s right!
Open up there’s nothing to hide.
To learn to forgive, you first have to believe in who you are inside.

Please don’t say “You are lazy,”
Because I’m really crazy!
Even the gentlest swans
Are kicking up a storm, fighting hard beneath the surface.
I will be true to myself,
I’ll take on what you dish out.
My future’s bright ahead,
So that’s why I can stop, take a break for just a second.
