私立恵比寿中学「金八」の魅力①:願いをかなえた曲「金八DANCE MUSIC」 The charm of the album ‘Kinpachi’ by Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku①: The song through which they made their dream come true, ‘Kinpachi DANCE MUSIC’


 “Kinpachi”, the title of this song which somehow impacts on me, seems to have two meanings. The one is the number of the members, Ebichu has eight members at the time, and the other is the famous music TV program, “Music Station”, which was broadcast on eight p.m. every Friday at that time.

 What is written here in the lyrics must have been their earnest desire at that time. That desire was expressed here so explicitly that this song turned out to be a hilarious one to the extent of making listeners bursting out laughing, This song was written by Ken-ichi Maeyamada, also known as Hyadain. He has ever written for so many artists including even SMAP.  



 As a matter of fact, Ebihu appeared on Music Station and sang this song. I saw it five years ago, February 2, 2015, even though I didn’t know Ebichu at all. I remember I was exhilarated with Aika Hirota’s characteristic way of speaking, she was still a member of Ebichu at the time. Nakai, the leader of SMAP, was so intrigued by her that he made mild fun of her, and the other members of SMAP tried to mimic her. I regret a lot because I didn’t notice how good this song was at that time.


 I’m sure that this song shows one of the peaks they reached at that time. However, I know the fact that they have been blessed with good songs so far, and have reached a higher plane of achievement now. I’m somehow proud of those facts as a novice fan of them.
