So said Ken Mogi, Japan’s famed brain scientist. And when someone, who studies qualia says so, it must mean something. Yatta, baka boys!
The lyrics to FIGHT SONG was written by Arashi themselves and music by Nino. Click HERE for the Romaji, Kanji and English lyrics.
My favorite lines would be:
It’s okay to cry sometimes
It’s okay to show your weaknesses
But don’t stagnate there!
You can still achieve it
The dreams (that lie) ahead
I’ve said this many times but I’m going to say it again. That’s what I like about Arashi’s music. It’s life affirming and very positive. And you can feel the vibe even if at first you don’t understand the words. Their songs just pass a positive energy to you and how many fans out there have thanked their songs for accompanying them through ups and downs in life?
Here’s Arashi singing the song live in a 2007 concert:
Don’t be deceived by the melody or the baka-ness with which they always sing this song. Maybe what Ken Mogi meant when he said it’s “very deep” is the effect it has between your brain and mind, or the qualia sotospeak. The song registers as a happy melody in your brain and fires up to your mind as an anthem about surging ahead to achieve your dreams, nevermind the odds. You can also march to it. You’re welcome.
If you want to learn more about this schmuck who finds the song “very deep”, visit his blog or add him as friend on Facebook. Or follow him on Twitter, you can ask him about other things too. Oh and he’s apparently a good friend of the former Japanese premier Yukio Hatoyama. I wonder what sort of neuron manifestation is that?
