BACK-ON – Colors | Lyrics

After an uber-long hiatus (I have a good excuse!) I’d like to introduce the lyrics for Colors, which is from one of Back-on‘s latest singles flower. As with the other songs on this single, Colors is quite upbeat in style and has been part of Back-on‘s repertoire for a while (at least around April/May 2007) as it is also the main theme of the show Tokyo Mayokara.

We’ve had some help this time from aoi-sama, who kindly agreed to let us use his romaji version of Colors as a basis for the version here, so a big thank you to him!

So as usual, you can find the original kanji below, romaji on page 2 and the romanised version on page 3, with page 4 featuring the hybrid/karaoke mix of kanji and romanji.

As always, if you spot any mistakes, please let me know either by commenting below or via the contact form. If you would like to post these lyrics elsewhere, please link back to this page. :)

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



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!

DRIVE lyrics released and Colors vs. Colours

Since its release a few days ago, the Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ lyrics has become extremely popular, evident in the number of click-throughs *as well* as the number of downloads suddenly shooting up to 208 in this short space of time. Chain has also been a hotly demanded download, with 101 click-throughs.

The next lyrics release (which I finally finished typing up and checking yesterday) is DRIVE, which is another track found in the New World album. Its a very different style to the more well-known Hikari Sasuhou, New World and Chain. Its very chilled out – think road trip – and contains such great words such as accell (or accelerator) and clutch, which is perfect for its title. Hopefully I’ll be able to get hold (or attempt a) of a translation of this song soon as I think this song has a great message, even if I haven’t fully grasped it yet.

Finally, with regards to the debate of Colors vs Colours. In case you weren’t aware of the news, this new release by Back-on features as the new theme for the TV Tokyo show Tokyo Mayokara. We haven’t had a chance to listen to the new song yet, but it seems it should be spelt Colors despite the blog referring to the song as Colours. This means any previous articles will have this small typo which I hope no one minds too much!

p/s: Thank you for continuing to support Back-on Online – there are only 19 more days till Back-on‘s performance at Anime Matsuri. You can find a more detailed info about their schedule here.  Also, if you noticed a little downtime earlier – this was because our database needed a little repair work but once this was completed the website was back online within the hour.


About this entry



“Colours” will not be the third track in the BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming… single

There was some speculation (on my part) that Colours – the new theme song for the TV show Tokyo Mayokara! (Tokyoマヨカラ!) might feature as the third song in the forthcoming single release, BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming…, due out on June 6th 2007. However, Back-on have announced on their blog that the song won’t be part of that single.

※6月6日発売のシングルには「Colours」は収録されません。

I haven’t heard the song yet, but I’m a little sad to find that its not included for June 6th 2007… which makes one wonder if it will be the full length Hikari Sasuhou ヒカリサスホウ (FK Metal ver.)? What do you all think?

On another note, I obviously mis-read the news before… but on second viewing it seems much clearer now: Back-on‘s very own Icchan will be presenting a special event on May 10th 2007 focusing on on their (forthcoming) trip to America, entitled “アメリカ帰国ライブ” or literally “America returning home Live“. The event will be held at Shibuya Ruido K2 who haven’t yet updated their listings for May so hopefully we’ll find out more information closer to the time!




Tokyo TV’s Mayokara new opening theme, Back-on’s “Colours” and a new Back-on only gig at Shibuya O-Crest!

The news source this time is from the official Back-on website, so unless I’ve completely interpreted it incorrectly it seems that we have found out the name of one of their new songs, potentially even the third song on the forthcoming “BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming…” single release!

We mentioned before that Back-on‘s song 鼓動 (Kodou) featured as the main theme for TV Tokyo’s Mayokara (マヨカラ). Now, according to Back-on‘s website, the programme has chosen another Back-on song for their new theme tune, “Colours” which Back-on describes as a fast song with a “hot message“.

It is due to be aired with the episode on Thursday, April 5th 2007 at 2:00am. You can read more about the forthcoming episode on the Tokyo Mayokara website. Unfortunately I can’t find any clips of the show online at the moment but the website is worth visiting as it seems like a fun programme. ^^

Back-on has also updated their schedule of live events to include a Back-on only appearance at Shibuya O-Crest (which apparently fits 200 people) on July 4th 2007. It seems this performance is in celebration of Back-on returning from America!

Tickets will officially be on-sale from the ticket office from May 19th, but Back-on will be selling tickets at almost all of their forthcoming live performances starting from April 18th. These advanced tickets will retail at ¥2,500, which is more than the usual ¥1,800 – ¥2,000. As Back-on usually performs with 2-3 other bands at gigs, this is a step forward!

I should also add that their website states that their April 18th 2007 gig at 柏ZaX for 「ZaX 3MAN LIVE!!」 will apparently be recorded and Back-on will be performing lots of songs as its their main show before their trip to Anime Matsuri! The Events page will be updated with more details information soon. :)

p/s: I would add links to the official venue websites for e.g. Shibuya but for some reason they are IE (Internet Explorer) only.
