Allow me to break my silence up to now with this long awaited “Come Back To Me” video premiere from Utada Hikaru’s upcoming album “This Is The One”. The video is directed by Anthony Mandler and was shot in Los Angeles. I have to say that her brand new song “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence – FYI” is also simply fabulous and she’s definitely serious this time in re-invading the world. Just can’t wait for the day when they start putting her albums on the Tower Record racks and getting my hands on one of them. Utada, great works as always ! Thanks for the posters sent in to me the other day ! Can’t wait to go to your next concert in the future !

When I checked my Hotmail account a while ago, I was thrilled to find out that an e-mail from the Utada mailing list that I’m subscribing to had arrived informing the new single by Utada and am real excited for the release of her coming new English album. Anyway, you can listen to her new single “Come Back To Me” at her official website. Also available at her MySpace. So check it out ! 🙂 Been a bit busy lately to blog. Will start re-blogging properly once I get settled with current higher priority matters. Peace.

Come Back To Me

Spacer

The rain falls on my windows
And the coldness runs through my soul
And the rain falls, oh, the rain falls
I don’t want to be alone

Spacer

I wish that I could photoshop on
Our bad memories
Because the flashbacks, oh the flashbacks
Won’t leave me alone

Spacer

If you come back to me
I’ll be all that you need
Baby, come back to me
Let me make up for what happened in the past

Spacer

(Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
Boy, you’re one in a million (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
You’re one in a million
(You’re one in a million)

Memories I have of Manhattan
She goes shopping for new clothes
And she buys this, and she buys that
Just leave her alone
I wish that he would listen to her
Side of the story
It isn’t that bad, it isn’t that bad
And she’s wiser for it now

Spacer

I admit I cheated (admit I cheated )
Don’t know why I did it (why I did it)
But I do regret it (do regret it)
Nothing I can do or say can change the past

Spacer

(Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
Boy, you’re one in a million (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
You’re one in a million
(You’re one in a million)

Spacer

Everything I ever did
Heaven knows I’m sorry but
I was too young to see
You were always there for me
And my curiosity
Got the better half of me
Baby take it easy on me
Anything from A to Z
Tell me what you want to be
I open my heart to be
You are my priority
Can’t you see you’ve punished me
More than enough already
Baby take it easy on me

Spacer

Baby take it easy on me
Baby come back to me
Baby come back to me

Boy you’re one in a million (Come back)

I’ll be everything you need (Come back)
Baby come back to me (Come back)
You’re one in a million
(You’re one in a million)

Utada Hikaru: Prisoner of Love

Prisoner of Love

A snippet shot from her promotion video for this song

The promotion video from her latest released single

I’m a prisoner of love
Prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love
I’m just a prisoner of love
A prisoner of love

平気な顔で嘘をついて
笑って 嫌気がさして
楽ばかりしようとしていた

ないものねだりブルース
皆安らぎを求めている
満ち足りてるのに奪い合う
愛の影を追っている

退屈な毎日が急に輝きだした
あなたが現れたあの日から
孤独でも辛くても平気だと思えた
I’m just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love

病める時も健やかなる時も
嵐の日も晴れの日も共に歩もう

I’m gonna tell you the truth
人知れず辛い道を選ぶ
私を応援してくれる
あなただけを友と呼ぶ

強がりや欲張りが無意味になりました
あなたに愛されたあの日から
自由でもヨユウでも一人じゃ虚しいわ
I’m just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love

Oh もう少しだよ
Don’t you give up
Oh 見捨てない 絶対に

残酷な現実が二人を引き裂けば
より一層強く惹かれ合う
いくらでもいくらでも頑張れる気がした
I’m just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love

ありふれた日常が急に輝きだした
心を奪われたあの日から
孤独でも辛くても平気だと思えた
I’m just a prisoner of love
Just a prisoner of love

Stay with me, stay with me
My baby, say you love me
Stay with me, stay with me
一人にさせない

Drama “Last Friends”, on heavy topics like DV and GID

The song “Prisoner of Love” is currently the theme song for a new drama entitled “Last Friends” as you can see from the video above. Saw Hikki’s performance on SMAP x SMAP on TV today and she was singing this song and totally loved it. Will definitely get my hands on the single CD which is going to come along with a DVD (out in May). You can see the preview of the promotion video at her homepage right now. Love your song, Hikki ! Check the song out on my Music Box ! Anyway, I’ve just watched the 1st episode of “Last Friends” and it was definitely a good drama. A drama with heavy social topics like domestic violence (DV) and gender identity disorder (GID). Looking forward to the next episode very much and the song truly suited the drama very, very much. For those of you in Japan, be sure to check it out on Fuji Television, every Thursday 10 pm.

It’s officially out ! Hikki’s latest album. I love the new design of her official website. Visit here to see it for yourself. The title of her newest album is the same title for one of her newest single, “Heart Station”. For this album, it is filled with many of her pretty new sensational music and pretty pop-ish, something different when compared to her past albums. I’ve always enjoyed the changes, all fresh and you really need to “digest” by listening a lot, to love her songs. Can’t wait to get my hands on it. Thanks Hikki and keep up the good work ! Love your music very much. Peace !

Heart Station Promotion Video

Some people say that the video clip is boring, but I would say it fits the song very well since basically the song is like a thought in the mind while you are singing in your head and listening to some music, thinking of someone while you are traveling like for instance in a train. The word “heart station” and the train scene which links to the real physical station, kind of blends in significantly showing a scene that you would understand if you do take trains in Japan. I personally do what she does in this particular video when I do get on a train. Headphones buzzing my favorite music while my mind bewilders thinking about things that were mingling around in my head. It is artistic in someway and I love the first part where it starts off with her eyes. It is very unlike her in the sense for the past few videos which she had done with her ex-husband Kiriya, she was very exquisite and all indifferent with the sophisticated style. The difference shown in this particular video, I personally love this new style very much as much as I love the past ones as well so enjoy watching. Peace.

Happy Birthday, Hikki !

Utada Hikaru 20th Single
Spacer

Utada Hikaru, Japan’s top diva, who has just turned 25 yesterday will be releasing her 20th single “HEART STATION/Stay Gold” this coming 20th February. Although she went through a divorce with Kiriya, well known for directing her promotion videos, in March last year, she has been actively introducing new hip into her music and this 20th single is definitely going to mark a new point in her music life and yes, I am already enjoying listening to the preview available online. Check out my music box at the side bar on the left to hear them. I particularly love the song “Stay Gold” and I knew it instantly that it was her when I heard this song on the Asience shampoo TV ad by Kao. Just can’t wait to see her singing live on music shows.
