BACK-ON – Word play | Lyrics

Word play is one track that very much surprised me from BACK-ON‘s third album “Good Job!!” – the preview clip really did not do it justice – as it’s a summer track that reminds me of bands from the 60s (think Beach Boys and Cliff Richard and the Shadows), very tongue-in-cheek and carefree – I especially love the verses and the raps – and the first 10 seconds with the ‘radio’ voice over adds a twist, making it an even better road-trip song.

Seriously – who wouldn’t want to clap their hands and say oh! oh! oh! with BACK-ON?

As before we have Uta-Net to thank for the original lyrics and will also include some notes before the song of interesting words used:

ヤマヅミナンデス = definitely a huge pile (combines ヤマヅミ and ナンデス)

ページ = page

レントゲン = ‘rentogen’ = X-ray

Our usual disclaimer is as follows:

The usual kanji, romaji and karaoke versions of the lyrics can be found below (after the cut-off) and we will always do our best to bring you the most accurate lyrics possible, so we do occasionally amend the spelling of the original English lyrics if we believe it to be appropriate.

BACK-ON – Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! | Lyrics

BACK-ON launched their third album Good Job!! today which features an eclectic mix of songs – including Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! – brilliant electro-pop track which appears to have been inspired a little by Like a G6 by Fast East Movement.

And this is one of the rare songs where TEEDA‘s rap is completely in English.

As usual we have Uta-Net to thank for the original lyrics and will also include some notes before the song of interesting words used:

テキーラ = tequila

メリーゴーランド = merry-go-round

シラフ = ‘shirafu’ = sober or straight-faced (opposite to being red-faced when drunk)

モード = mode

ダンスフロア = dance floor

So the line “シラフはもちろんkeep outモード” is something like “Sober of course, keep out mode”

Our usual disclaimer is as follows:

TEEDA and KENJI03 – Radio interview with BayFM’s Sana on “ON8″ and listen to ‘come on & Let’s go feat. Emyli, KALIS from OverDose (Taiwan)” in full!

BACK-ON‘s TEEDA and KENJI03 joined BayFM‘s さな(Sana) on her radio show ON8 yesterday and MONSTERSNITE has very kindly uploaded it onto Youtube for everyone to listen to as well!

The pair are their usual charming selves (I think there’s even a gift!) and Sana likes calling them ‘sempai’, but quite importantly, this is probably the first time that come on & Let’s go feat. Emyli, KALIS from OverDose (Taiwan) has received radio airplay and we get to hear it in FULL!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKTSSNHazC0

It is definitely a fantastic collaboration featuring KENJI03 + TEEDA + Emyli + KALIS rapping and singing in no less than three different languages (English, Japanese and Mandarin) – it is THE tune of the month for me!

I reckon it will be impossible for anyone not to like this song and it would be great to know your thoughts! :D  With lyrics like ‘turn up the volume on the 50-pound boom box‘ and mentions of ‘Wu-Tang‘  (TEEDA) and ‘gotta aim sky high never settle for a lie‘ (Emyli),  ‘gotta be brave… 最真實的自我’   (my true self – KALIS) and a chorus with English and Japanese (sung predominantly by KENJI03) – English excerpts below:

Come on and Let’s go, are you ready set go!…
I wanna be a hero
Tell me what you want, show me what you got yeah 

Such a hotly anticipated collaboration and BACK-ON delivered with aplomb! :D  For those who understand Japanese better than I do, I would love to find out more about what they talked about during the interview!

BACK-ON releases 45 second preview clips of all songs from “Good Job!! on BACK-ON.com”

With thanks to the TEEDA via his Twitter account for the news:  BACK-ON have just posted 45 second preview clips of all the songs from their new album “Good Job!!” on their official website!

It’s definitely what one would call a fast-paced album with a lot of variety, going by the songs showcased here, but I think BACK-ON are catering for everyone here – fans past/present/future – with this ensemble of work. I can hardly wait for May 30th 2012!

Click on the image below to listen to the clips – let us know what your  favourite is so far: my personal one has to be “come on & Let’s go feat. Emyli, KALIS from OVERDOSE (Taiwan)

And I have checked with the OVERDOSE team by the way – his name is KALIS and not Kailis! :)

Screenshot for "Good Job!!" playlist on BACK-ON.com

p/s: I have now added Ice cream and Piece  to the BOO Radio for your online BACK-ON music fix :)




BACK-ON – Piece | Lyrics

As the B-side track on BACK-ON‘s eleventh single “Ice cream“, Piece came as a really pleasant surprise and has become a personal favourite; it reminds me of the ‘old-skool’ rock BACK-ON, although TEEDA has taken his rap verses to the next level since then.

We have Uta-Net to thank for the original lyrics and will also include some notes before the song of interesting words used:

バラバラ = barabara = scattered, dispersed, disconnected, loose

はつなぎ = 初凪 = first lull (or first calm)

Assuming the lyrics are correct: KENJI03 appears to combine two pronunciations of ‘明日’ in the first line of Chorus 2 (‘asu’ and ‘myou’ = “asuyou”) and does not sing the が.

Our usual disclaimer is as follows:

About this entry



BACK-ON – Ice cream | Lyrics

Ice cream is the title track of BACK-ON‘s eleventh single “Ice cream” and comes with its own colourful and humorous PV!

What’s really nice about this track is the sheer joy and happiness of the song that makes anyone and everyone leap up and dance (or I do at any rate) – even though the lyrics (at least the rap part) are quite cheeky – and one has to be impressed by KENJI03‘s increasing use of English too ;)

So with thanks to Uta-Net for the original lyrics. As usual, we will try and include some more notes overtime about the lyrics of Ice cream below to showcase the rich vocabulary used by the band:

リアクション = riakushon = reaction

アンコール = ankoru = encore

Watch BACK-ON “Ice cream” PV preview on Youtube!

With props to our new forum member reghrhre for the find, you can now watch a 1:33 min preview clip of BACK-ON‘s brand new PV for “Ice cream on Youtube!   reghrhre spotted TEEDA’s RT of @kimonako‘s post about the new video and decided to share it with us on the Forums!

It is definitely one of the funniest music videos I have seen to date (and it was only the first 1:33 minutes!) and for those who haven’t had a chance to watch it yet, some of these quick screenshots might help you build up a picture:

Although we don’t know the ending yet, the video begins starts like this: it’s a slow start to the day, but then 2 lovely female customers enter the diner. This galvanises the BACK-ON band members into action, and they compete to see who will be the one to help out the ladies each time.

As you can see from the screenshots, the colours are very vivid and match the location of the video shoot: the 1950s California-style Diner “Googie’s Cafe” (Nagano 南長野店 branch).  Particular personal favourites at the moment are GORI’s “Oh my god” face, KENJI03’s prancing to-and-fro from the table and being distracted by one of the lady’s assets *cough wink* and TEEDA’s “neuuu….”

The video was uploaded by ggajjgas and its direct link can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DcLsv3JHz0

UPDATE! You can now watch a 480p quality version uploaded by avexnetwork here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IL_kdHUuPns

Like the PV? Love the PV? Let us know :) The song is certainly very upbeat and you can watch it by clicking on the link above or alternatively, click on ‘read more’ below to watch it here:

BACK-ON to release their third album “Good Job!!” on May 30th 2012!

As with Hello World, BACK-ON have decided to release two editions of their third album “Good Job!!” – a CD-only version and the other as a CD+DVD combo. This is the first album release since Icchan left the band in November 2011 and features 9 new, previously unreleased, tracks!

Good Job!! (CD) Good Job!! (CD+DVD)
Good Job!! (CD) Good Job!! (CD + DVD)

With thanks to CDJapan for the images and details: the CD-only edition will include 12 tracks, and the CD+DVD edition will apparently have two additional videos for “Ice cream” and “Connectus and selfish”.

The tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Ice cream
  2. Highway Dancer
  3. Connectus
  4. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
  5. come on & Let’s go feat. Emyli, kalis from OVER DOSE (Taiwan)
  6. HOME
  7. Word play
  8. WE CAN’T STOP
  9. フタリダイアリー
  10. IT’S NOT OVER
  11. Selfish
  12. Mr Yesterday
  13. [DVD] Ice cream **
  14. [DVD] Connectus and selfish **

As we browse through the tracklist, we find that the band have included “Connectus and selfish” as two separate songs – BACK-ON originally combined the two due to restrictions by their record company for the same-title single to only have ‘one new track – and have collaborated with Kalis from the indie Taiwanese rock band OVERDOSE for “come on & Let’s go”.

Some of you may recall that OVERDOSE were the opening act (or warm-up act) for BACK-ON during their 2009 live tour in Taiwan – KALIS is credited as one of the band’s main vocals and rappers and you can listen to more of the band’s music on their official Youtube channel.

Emyli – who also collaborated with them on the same song – is a Japanese pop singer who has also worked with m-flo. She recently posted a photo of herself and TEEDA on her Facebook wall and her official website can be found here.

BACK-ON‘s third track “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme” hints at ABBA (I hope it will be a fast song, personally) and フタリダイアリー or ‘Two person diary’ seems to be a very contemplative title.

All-in-all, Good Job!! is looking to be a very intriguing release – especially given the collaborations – and I hope you are as excited as we are about it! We’ll be updating the Discography section as we find out more, but feel free to come and join our forum discussion thread as well!

BACK-ON’s “Ice cream” promotional drive kicks off with revamped official HP and a new ‘behind-the-scenes’ video!

BACK-ON kicked off their promotional drive for Ice cream today with the launch of their revamped official website [Ice cream edition] which features a new logo, new promotional photo and a new design that incorporates all the links to their social media channels too!

BACK-ON.com - Ice Cream edition

I personally absolutely adore their new look: it’s clean, stylish and so easy to navigate. The band’s team have also redesigned the profile page – instead of individual profiles – there is now a quick summary of the band instead beneath the (new) group photo:

Screenshot from BACK-ON.com (Profile Page)

They also uploaded a brand new ‘behind-the-scenes’ video on their Youtube channel: it features the band and their team during their Ice cream photo shoot session last month (March 2012) and for those who prefer reading to listening, BACK-ON helpfully included subtitles!   You can tell they had a lot of fun (despite the temperature being a measly 4 degree Celsius) and it’s really worth watching the video (爆つべ vol.21) just to laugh along with them and see them interact!

The highlights would probably include:

  • A snapshot of GORI from about 10 years ago (before he was 18)
  • KENJI03 biting a baguette – with zest!
  • SHU laughing out loud and his oh so handsome new look (slicked back hair works for him!)
  • TEEDA doing a ‘mini’ strip tease
  • Lots of party-poppers and pizza and random scenes

You can watch the video by clicking on this link here:

Watch 爆つべ vol.21!

Single cover for Ice creamBACK-ON has just announced that they will be releasing their new single Ice cream on May 9th 2012! It will feature two tracks:

  1. Ice cream
  2. Piece

The title track ‘Ice cream is said by Musicman-NET to be a party-rock tune, and the new single cover, which was posted by TEEDA on his latest blog post just earlier (so did the staff), has now made its way onto the band’s official discography page.

In addition, Musicman-NET also shared a brand new promotional photo of the band – shown below – featuring some seriously heavy eyeliner; even our lovely Shu has undergone a revamp with his new slicked-back hair!

The article talks about BACK-ON‘s recent work, including TEEDA‘s collaboration with Koda Kumi  (aka. Mrs Kenji03) on her 50th single  “Poppin’ love cocktail feat.TEEDA“, as well as KENJI03 and TEEDA‘s performance on a-Nation, says that this is one of most anticipated releases from the band, and that the band will be performing their new songs at their forthcoming tour in June!

p/s: It also mentions a forthcoming album release at  the end of May… so much to look forward to! :)
