And if you haven’t already guessed by now, am now stuck looping Hirano Aya’s God Knows, which is the Insert Song for the anime, Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, aka, Suzumiya Haruhi No Yuutsu in Japanese.
Check the song out on YouTube. The one I keep listening to comes with subtitles , so if I want to sing along (and look like a fool while doing so, which is nothing unusual) I can. This is one of the few songs I’ve heard that just listening to it makes me feel invigorated and alive. It’s also one of the rare ones that describes me at the point I’m at now without me knowing about the meaning of the song beforehand.
Even simply listening to it without the visuals, there’s a strong energy apparent, which is missing in a lot of songs today. You could practically feel every syllable, every note revebertating through your ears. The emotions and the feelings in each word is apparent; you hear a person daring to fight fate and perhaps the man she loved for the right to be with him, and from what I can gather, the right to slap him to remind him. It’s basically a song about fighting for the right to stand for the person you love and care about, even if they reject you.
Don’t get me wrong. It’s not about being a slave. It’s about walking the road equally, but with enough strength to still walk away when you’ve had enough.
Also, this is a song with a strong instrument background. In other words, you can actually feel the presence of the guitar and the drums. In fact, there is no other instrument used in the song. You can actually listen to the Karaoke version (available on Gendou, which is one of the best sites on the net!) and judge for yourself.
I’m dissatisfied with the lyrics… will take it down and republish it, sorry for the spam guys. >
