The balance of the composition is intentionally broken
———-That’s quite an unusual song.
Don’t you think so?
The balance of the composition is intentionally broken.
———-The intro is strangely long.
The “amuamu part,” as it is called, is quite long.
I don’t think I would have continued the same phrase so long in the past, but I wanted to make it longer here.
———-Is there a reason for that?
I think the main reason is that the range of music I listen to is wider than before.
For example, I wondered why “JAGATARA” repeats the same phrase so often.
I thought I would get bored.
———-Do you understand the meaning now?
No, I don’t know what it means.
But sometimes it is pleasant.
Like “Long Season” by the “Fishmans”, the same phrase is repeated over and over again, but I never get tired of it.
Also, “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” from “Iron Butterfly,” where they keep improvising for what seems like forever, but I never get tired of it, it’s comfortable.
———-Yes, they have something in common.
It’s the alteration of the sense of time through the use of drugs.
But I’m sober, so I couldn’t do it longer.
I would get bored.
That’s why I kept using the same phrases, and that was my limit.
The arrangement also changed secretly.
———-It’s unusual to have the first, second, and third phrases go on and on without a pause.
It was necessary to have that kind of flow in order to make the flow of curry, ramen, and metal clear.
Because I yell “Judus Priest”!
———-After that, there is another part where you repeat the same riff over and over, which is unnatural, if you will.
Yes, that’s also the limit of what I can repeat.
I also put in a few tricks to keep it interesting.
I was thinking of “Judas Priest”‘s “Steeler” (from “British Steel”).
“Steeler” goes on and on with the same riff at the end of the song.
———-…Isn’t it kind of similar?
But you’ll have to forgive me because I yell “Judus Priest”!
You feel the catharsis through your whole body
———-After the riff, you go into the solo, right?
Yes, from the solo, the song is catchy as if it is making amends for the past.
The song modulates and explodes from the chorus, which is also a common pattern in Japanese pop music.
The final chord progression is a great way to end the song.
How about that, didn’t you feel the catharsis through your whole body?
———-You exaggerate every word you say, don’t you?
I’m proud of myself for all the hard work I put into it.
The seeker always has the question in his mind
———-What about the lyrics?
The lyrics have no particular twist.
They were written around a phrase you see all the time on the Internet: “It’s okay like this”.
I’ve tried a lot of different things, but in the end I keep coming back to it.
But, as in any world, the seeker always has the question in his mind, “Is this good enough?”
Or rather, I think they must have it.
That’s why I changed the phrase at the end to “It’s okay like this, too”.
———-I see. So you have wondered if it is okay to say “Amu amu”?
Well, I guess so.
But I concluded that I should be proud of it.
———-Yes, it all came together quite nicely, but is it okay like this?
Don’t worry, it’s okay like this.
