なぜか飽きない曲:私立恵比寿中学「紅の詩」 Songs I can’t get enough of: “Kurenai no Uta” by Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku

 エビ中の楽曲の魅力から抜け出せずにいます。5thアルバムから聴き始めた自分はその全曲にハマり、ようやく4thにさかのぼったものの、ここでもいちいちハマって先に進めずにいます。中でも、そのカッコよさにしびれてヘビロテしてしまうのが、「紅の詩」です。

 I still can’t help but listen to their songs. The 5th album is the first one for me to listen to Ebichu’s album, and I was into all the songs in it. I was lingering on the album for a while but finally moved on to their 4th Album and end up lingering each song in it, too. The song I listen to repeatedly the most is “Kurenai no Uta”, because this song is so cool.


紅の詩 / 私立恵比寿中学 @ちゅうおん2018

 この曲はまず、歌詞の中毒性がすごいです。

 This song has quite addictive lyrics.

 

 眠れない物語のペイジに 思いを紡ぎます

 項垂れを知らぬ稲穂が 星座と戯れています

 そんないつもと同じような夜に 奇跡はおこります

 オリオンが眠った隙に 世界は騒ぐのです

 On each page of the story that doesn’t allow you to sleep, I write what I am feeling.

 The rice ears that won’t be drooping are playing with constellations.

 On that ordinary night, a miracle happens.

 The world trys to let off steam while the Orion has fallen asleep.  

 「ですます調」の歌詞がメロディにハマったときに感じる心のざわつきはなんでしょう。キャンディーズの「春一番」以来、数多くの「ですます調」の素敵な歌はあるのでしょうが、この曲は群を抜いているように思います。

 I’m wondering why the sentences with “desu or masu” at the end of them stir my heart when they go well with the melodies. There must have been many songs with sentences like that since “Haruichiban” by Candies, and this song is somehow outstanding.  

 

 駱駝を照らしてお月様 琥珀の道へ

 眠れぬ 君のハートに 翼広げ 運命も加速したのに

 Under the moon shining down upon a camel, I am taking the road of amber,

 Spreading its wings over the heart of you sleepless, destiny has been gathering speed. 

 サビに向かうこの部分の意味深な雰囲気と歯切れのよさは見事です。

 This part which is followed by the catchy part of this song is exquisitely meaningful and crisp.

 

 どしてすぐに返事をクレナイ?

 切なくて飛べない豚になりそーうだ

 リアルまみれの海岸で 足がすくみ震えてます

 睡眠不足の女優 チャンスは一回きりのサスライト

 奇跡は待ってくれないよ 瞬く夜空の花火も

 Why don’t you give me a reply right away?

 I’m so longing for it that I could be a flightless pig

 My legs turn to jelly trembling at the seashore which is full of reality.

 An actress who is short of sleep. It’s now or never under the suspension lights.

 The moment of miracle won’t wait, and fireworks in the night sky won’t, too.

 「ですます調」から一転、力強く言い切る語尾に、完全に連れていかれます。「紅の豚」にかけた歌詞と畳みかけるような韻の踏み方が気持ち良くて、つい口ずさんでしまいたくなります。

 There is a sudden change of tone in the sentences from “desu or masu” to somehow strongly decisive way at the end of them so I’m perfectly carried away. I can see a play of words about “Kurenai no Buta” here and find some part rhyme well so I can’t help but sing to myself. 

 

 この秀逸な歌詞を惹きたてているのが、素晴らしい編曲です。ワクワク感あふれる出だしの盛り上がり、2番に入ったときの引きずるような三連符、間奏でのエモーショナルなギターなど、ワクワクする要素がいっぱいです。

 The arrangement of this song enhances these excellent lyrics even more. There are many exciting parts such as the lively beginning of the song that somehow makes me thrilled, dragging triplets at the beginning of the second half, the emotional sound of the guitar in the interlude and so on. 

 でも、何より素晴らしいのはメンバー一人一人の個性あふれる声質と一生懸命な歌い方が際立っていることです。

 However, the best part of this song is that I can tell clearly the strong personalities in their voices and the sincerities in their way of singing.
