Squall ….

Updates on my playlist ….. I find that Jpop puts me in great working mood during ‘office hours’ so as to speak ……

Had this song in my mp3 sometime back …..and recently found out that it was originally written for another female artise as a drama insert song (Jap drama Perfect Love) ……

松本英子 – Squall

versus 福山雅治 – Squall

I would say both versions are great in their own way, but I suppose 福山雅治(Fukuyama Masaharu) aka Masa’s version has the edge for me personally as I find it emotionally more stirring …… what’s more amazing is the simplicity of the piano and guitar combination and Masa’s rendition and deep baritone that adds to the emotion of it all …… And also, Masa is the composer (music and lyrics) of this song as well 🙂

In case you are wondering what exactly you are listening to, a set of translated lyrics courtesy of here ……

The sky is so beautiful
Making the recent rain seem like a lie

Because you smile like that
I get happy without even noticing

Your slightly-too-large shirt
I just now grabbed onto the sleeve as you passed…

I’m so much in love it’s sad
I can’t hide this pain anymore
I want to be with you more
Just the two of us
I want you to make my summer longing come true
I’ve been searching, just for you…

The sweating glasses of iced tea
And too many Polaroids

Because we frolicked around like that
The way home seems so lonely

The train station dyed by the sunset
You wave your hand as you get farther away…

I’m falling in love so much it hurts
I can’t hide this passion anymore
I always dreamed
That we’d meet each other
I want you to understand my summer longing

And I touched the rain!
So I need your love

I’m in love, I’m falling in love
I won’t hide this passion anymore
I dreamed
That we finally met
An unending summer longing
I’ve been searching, just for you…


That reminds me …. Galileo and Suspect X (Masa drama + movie) still remains on my “To-Watch” list 😛
