BACK-ON – Butterfly | Lyrics

It’s been a while since we’ve posted new lyrics on the BOO site, and as we gear up for the forthcoming release of ‘ONE STEP!/Tomorrow never knows, it’s time for ‘a step’ back in time to one of BACK-ON‘s earlier releases called  ‘Butterfly‘!

Butterfly (Single)

This is definitely one of my most favourite BACK-ON songs, although at the time of its release, the song certainly caused some concern amongst the fans that preferred the ‘rock’ side of the band, as it had a very ‘electronic dance’ feel to it. A PV was never released for the song, and it was promoted on TV with a 15-second CM featuring Kenji03 against an urban backdrop, fitting as the song was the ending theme for the TV series Shinjuku Swan.

As usual, you can find the lyrics below (after the cut-off) with the original kanji, romaji and karaoke versions of the lyrics as well! If you haven’t heard the song yet, visit our Music page and scroll to the end for our pop-out radio and listen to it.

By the way, we do occasionally amend the spelling of the original English lyrics if we believe it to be appropriate. But as always, if you spot any mistakes, please let us know either by commenting below or via the contact form.

Finally, if you would like to post these lyrics elsewhere, please kindly link back to this page. :)

About this entry



Music page updated with new downloads and a new poll

I’ll admit, it’s been a LONG LONG time since we updated the Music section of BOO, but better late than never, ne? Our last update was in September 2007, when New World and Hikari Sasuhou were voted the most wanted downloads, and up till now, each song has been downloaded over 1100 times, a new record for the Music page and definitely not just because of the delay in updating this page!

This time, a day dreaming… and Kodou were the top favourites of our voters, and as usual, we have also put up two extra downloads for just one week only, including the much-requested Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) as well as the runner up from the previous polls, forward.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the latest polls, and if possible, it would be great if you could vote again in the next one, where:

  • Butterfly (Butterfly single)
  • DRIVE (New World album)
  • Believer (Chain single)
  • Grab (Survive compliation album)
  • Gaku-Ten (Baby Rock album)
  • RAIN (New World album)

are all up for selection. It might be a bit more difficult to choose this time! :)

More updates will be forthcoming throughout the site, as well as more content from various contributors! And before I forget, we have updated the affiliate link with Sound EX from their Myspace to their official new website! The people behind the website are Nao and Sesshy, and I would encourage everyone to pay a visit, particularly as the graphics used for the site design really are fantastic! I’ve included a screenshot of the new site design below as a taster, but look out for the flash movie on the splash page – it’s worth the wait – and this is coming from someone who doesn’t usually take a second glance at splash pages.

BACK-ON – flower | Lyrics (Romaji)

With the recent release of flower and Butterfly, no doubt many people are *very* keen to sing-a-long to the songs! It would certainly be interesting to find out which one you prefer (time for a poll perhaps?) but I personally believe there is enough variation this time to ensure even the most polar fans are happy! :) Whilst waiting for the delivery of the singles for the kanji, forum member rageguy has kindly transcribed the lyrics of flower into romaji and posted them onto the forums, so a big thank you to him! :D

If you want to listen to the song online, feel free to mosey over to our Music page and scroll down for the radio, as it is currently featuring songs from both new singles as well as Hero!

Many people have been anticipating the release of flower and Butterfly, and you’ll be pleased to know that both singles are now available via torrent and other means *cough* forums *cough*.

About this entry



flower and Butterfly singles released (samples available)!

Back-on‘s brand new singles flower and Butterfly were both released to much fanfare yesterday! :D There has been a flurry of activity at Back-on’s Official Blog (which has a new layout) with plenty of photos and comments!

Ameblo - Official Blog - Version 2

This is particularly in response to the original blog post by Back-on‘s staff asking for feedback and comments, where I believe Back-on staff promised that comments would receive replies if they posted within a certain timeframe, and Teeda for instance, has made an amazing effort to say hi to everyone!

You might be interested in knowing that both Teeda and Kenji03 have stopped writing in their own blogs, and that Back-on’s Official Blog is now their main blogging platform, so it’s a fantastic resource for interesting pictures and videos from the band!

We’ll try and give you more information about these posts in the future, but Back-on did include some photos of the singles in the shops (HMV for instance) that you can see below:

Singles! Singles CD display

They also took pictures with some lucky CD staff member(s)!

Singles - Shop staff

Last but not least, if you’re wondering what the songs sound like, we’ve been able to listen to samples of each track on both CDs (courtesy of Hmv.co.jp) which we are now making available below as a mix-zip file below! So included 45 second samples are:

  • flower (Myspace preview) – as it’s better quality
  • ZERO
  • Colors
  • Butterfly (Myspace preview)
  • Spark
  • DRIVE (Shutokou Remix)

Please bear in mind that these are song samples so the quality is unfortunately not very good (aside from flower and Butterfly previews from Back-on’s Myspace, which were both made available in a previous post) but hopefully it is enough to give everyone a quick preview! Personally, aside from the title tracks, I’m loving the sample of ZERO and Colors! Which songs do you like?

About this entry



Back-on’s brand new official blog!

It’s not often that I type up news hot-off-the-press, but today is an exception because Back-on have just announced the release of the brand new official blog! The blog is now powered by Ameblo (アメブロ) and is available at the url (NOTE: no preceding www!):

http://ameblo.jp/back-on

I’m sure everyone would agree that this is a far easier link to remember compared to the url of their previous blog: http://back-on.cocolog-nifty.com/stuff/

Anyway, before we get too bogged down in the detail, let me tell you more about the new blog! As a picture is worth a thousand words, a screenshot of the new blog site will come first:

Screenshot of new Back-on Official Blog!

I do love these colours – of course they were designed (or chosen) to fit the new style that Back-on are using for this season, the upcoming release of flower (and maybe Butterfly?) – but it’s very easy on the eye! You’ll see that the top left menu actually has categories for all the band members, Teeda, Kenji03, Shu, Gori, Icchan and Back-on’s Staff, so it is possible that we’ll see entries on the official blog in the future byindividual band members! :)

The first entry has already been bagged by the Staff, who have introduced the new blog powered by Ameblo, and then going on to say that there will be lots more posts (I think) about the live events, recordings, personal thoughts and all sorts of other fun things!

So, to sum up: if you haven’t already bookmarked their new blog site, go for it!

p/s: I think I know what my next badge will be~~ take a look at the header of the new blog!

Download the flower and Butterfly previews on Myspace as mp3s!

This probably qualifies as Yet Another Media News Post (YAMNP), but now that we’re just under a month away from the release of both flower and Butterfly, the wait has almost become unbearable (for me at least) without listening to the previews of either track at least once a day! >_<

So if you are experiencing the same kind of symptoms, and haven’t already recorded both previews (available from Back-on’s Myspace), fear not, because you can now download both clips from BOO as mp3s! They are a little quiet, so you might need to turn up the volume a little on your iPod equivalent, but hopefully they will be of some help whilst we all endure the wait!

New single covers for flower and Butterfly released!

As we reported earlier in the month, Back-on are releasing two singles – flower and Butterfly – on the same day of September 19th 2007! To add to the happy news, we can now oogle the new single covers for both releases, and they are (as usual) quite artistic!

The first images that we received (last week) were courtesy of avalonstar12/Tsubame, which you can find below:

Flower, courtesy of Tsubame! butterfly - courtesy of Tsubame!

which coincided with the preview clip release of the flower pv, and you can now see larger versions of the single covers in our Gallery by clicking on the images above or viewing some larger thumbnails below, courtesy of Amazon.co.jp!

disc_butterfly

I love both designs, especially after hearing previews of both songs – now available on Back-on’s Myspace! In case you weren’t aware of it already, flower is the new ED for the anime Eyeshield 21; and Butterfly is the theme song for the new j-drama Shinjuku Swan, where the latter is about:

Shiratori Tatsuhiko, a young man who becomes a scout for Shinjuku’s red light district

where the synopsis is from the D-addicts’ Wiki. Personally, I really do think that the two new singles will actually be even more popular than Back-on‘s most recent release BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…, because if the previews are anything to go by: the songs are *really* good, particularly the chorus imho! Some fans have already suggested that the singles may build up to a full album release by Back-on, so hopefully that will happen soon!


About this entry



New singles – flower and Butterfly – both to be released on September 19th 2007!

The latest news from the Back-on camp (aka. website) brings some exciting information about their latest single! Instead of releasing just one, Back-on have decided to release 2 singles on the same day! :)

The first is called flower and was originally scheduled for release on August 27th 2007 according to 3rd-party websites, but the release date has been pushed back, perhaps to coincide with the release of Butterfly, the second single.

The band have released the tracklistings of both singles, and in summary, each single will feature 3 songs, and flower will feature extra bonus promotional video music clips of flower, a day dreaming… and BLAZE LINE! You can find the tracklistings below, or on the updated Discography page in more detail.

flower

  1. flower (ED 6 of Eyeshield 21)
  2. ZERO
  3. Colors (theme tune for the programme ‘Tokyo Mayokara’)

Butterfly

  1. Butterfly (theme tune for the new drama series ‘Shinjuku Swan’)
  2. Spark
  3. DRIVE (Remix)

The CD covers haven’t been made available yet, and this is something that I am personally very much anticipating! However, we maybe able to derive some idea from the latest website theme featuring Back-on with a new style!

Website - flower!

However, my favourite part of the new website has to be the content header that you can see below, particularly kenji03, who looks like a model imho! :D

Website - Flower Header!

So, anyway, whilst feasting your eyes on this new summer look, don’t forget to mark down September 19th 2007 in your diary/calendar/PDA, which is, again a Wednesday, true to the Back-0n tradition of Wednesday single and album releases!

p/s: For a preview of flower, you can now check out Back-on’s Myspace and listen to the track! We’ll also write a bit more at a later date about where you can purchase the singles!
