Music and Lyrics pages updated!

The long-awaited update for the Music page has finally arrived! :) I’m sure many were wondering what had happened when last month’s update failed to materialise, but the newly featured Downloads are now finally here!

Out of the 488 votes that we received since the previous poll/series, 38% and 36% voted for Hikari Sasuhou and New World respectively! I applaud these choices, simply because they both top my ‘favourite Back-on songs’ list! :D

To celebrate the forthcoming release of Butterfly and flower on September 19th 2007 (please mark this date in your diary if you haven’t already done so ^^) we are also featuring Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) and also EYES for download as well! However, they will only be available for one week only, so please do try and pick them up within the time frame.

In case you weren’t already aware of it, the Radio section of the Music page is now featuring one of Back-on‘s out-of-print albums: Hero. The album torrent came courtesy of Crackerjack, so we would like to thank her for making it available for everyone else to listen!

So on to the last part of the Download section, the new poll is now up and running with 6 songs to vote for this time (because of the forthcoming singles release) where each song is taken from almost all of the Back-on singles and mini-albums! Please do take a few seconds to vote when you have a spare moment. :)

Moving on to the updates to the Lyrics section, we mentioned previously that the lyrics are now organised alphabetically. funbari, who has been kindly helping out by typing up the missing lyrics (her contribution includes forward and ~feel~ so far!:)) mentioned that it could be improved further, so a further small change has been made in an attempt to make navigation clearer: by adding a prefix ‘Translation’ to any translated lyrics, similar to the current ‘Lyrics’ nomenclature.

Please do let us know if you have any suggestions as to how we can improve your navigation experience! :) Even small changes can make a significant difference.

Finally, thank you to everyone for your patience and support. ^^ Please look forward to more news updates! Feel free to subscribe to news updates and have the latest news delivered directly to your email inbox as well.

p/s: Don’t forget to check out the new Wallpaper section too, featuring work by MJtheOne!

Music page updated with new featured downloads (Series 5) and radio playlist!

Those who have already subscribed to the mailing list will already have received an email notifying them of the update to the Music page! Thanks to everyone who has been waiting patiently for the past month, I do appreciate your supportive comments! :D

In this particular update, the featured radio playlist is BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…, Back-on‘s latest single release. This means you can listen to the two title tracks, their TV-size versions as well as EYES!

With regards to the featured downloads, nearly 45% of the 270 voters wanted BLAZE LINE (Eyeshield 21 OP), whilst 30% voted for the all-time favourite, Chain (Air Gear OP!) We’ve also had a special request for Hikari Sasuhou (Survive ver.) and Drive, so to show our appreciation to the kind supporters of Back-on Online, both these songs are now available for download for one week!

Please do continue to vote for your favourite songs, but please remember, if you LIKE the songs, try and support Back-on by buying their CDs/attending their concerts!

Even if you can’t do so at the moment, seriously don’t worry, you can also help the band by spreading the word about their music! So please try and name-drop Back-on to your friends, family and the internet! :D

BACK-ON – EYES | Lyrics

EYES is undeniably one of my favourite Back-on songs, and hence are the first lyrics I’ve typed up from BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…. This album is unique in that there is a higher percentage of English lyrics than previous albums (great way of attracting the international audience imho).

It was surprisingly straightforward to type up, but there are a few points worth mentioning:

マジ
This means ‘serious’. So TEEDA is “spittin'” a serious manifesto.

Where is R.E.A.L だから自分の目で見て F.E.E.L
For “自分” – or “jibun”, TEEDA stresses the ‘n’ sound at the end.

弾き飛ばしたその coin!
“弾” is usually pronounced “dan”, but in this instance, “haji” is used instead.

EYES (for me anyway) screams ‘Compare and contrast’ (obviously nothing to do with my exam essay title) with the plentiful use of ‘or’ in the lyrics:

プラス か マイナス か (Plus or Minus)
真実 or 幻想 (Reality or Illusion)
裏か表か (Inside or Outside | Underneath or on the Surface)
光か影か (Light or Shadow)

It would be very interesting to translate the song, wouldn’t you agree?

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. :)

BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming… news – single cover released and the title of the third song!

Back-on have released the CD single cover for BLAZE LINE/a day dreaming…! It appears to be inspired by Eyeshield 21 as it features a picture of an American Football player(s) on the field, which is understandable considering two of the three songs are currently known to feature in the anime as the opening (OP) and ending (ED) theme!

BLAZE LINE/A day dreaming... single cover

I really love the single cover (gorgeous colours and such an appropriately themed design!) – although I do wonder who’s back we’re looking at? I’m fairly sure it’s not Gori as he doesn’t appear to have tattoos on his arms (see picture from the KERA inteview) The most likely candidate is TEEDA (who’s arm I think is found on the cover of Chain… hmm I say the weirdest things) and the best example I can find to support my hypothesis is a screenshot from the New World MV of Teeda‘s back.

Back of Teeda from New World MV... tattoo!

I could use another picture to demonstrate the tattoo at the front of his right arm, but even I think that’s going a bit overboard, wouldn’t you agree? :p

And equally important piece of news is that Back-on have also released the title of the third song on the single, called EYES. So the tracklisting of the entire single is as follows:

  1. BLAZE LINE
  2. a day dreaming…
  3. EYES

I wouldn’t be surprised if EYES were to feature at a later date in Eyeshield 21. If you didn’t already know it, you can already watch and download the mp3 for the TV-size version of a day dreaming…, which was released on April 11th 2007 as the new ED. BLAZE LINE (TV-size) is due out as the new OP from May 2nd 2007, Episode 104: 一つ欠けたライン (Missing a line), and the single itself will be out on June 6th 2007.
