And she is back! – While work for next articles is waiting in my drawer, I thought to make a short post on the release of a new single (maxi) by popular ballad singer and movie cult siren Kaji Meiko (梶 芽衣子・かじ めいこ)😍. I’m a big fan of her music and have translated two of her songs so far here on MyLittle Dejima. The links for those articles you may find at the end ⬇ of this post – tune in🎶.
A few months ago, back in October 2016, I posted the first version of this article, however, a change corrupted some of the settings😤 and it’s no longer appearing properly on Google (sigh, technology 😩!), which lead me to post this again. Might have been a WordPress glitch, but I hope the new article stays unaffected. The former article I left as is though, as some visitors might still strand there (see Edition History on the bottom⬇). The main content remains mostly the same except for some minor editing. Well, here we go again🏃💨!
Another heart capturing song of Meiko Kaji that goes down like honey. Although it tells a sad story of hardship during separation, it’s absolutely wonderful vocally and in melody.
A blessed actress and singer she is, Kaji Meiko, and Akane Gumo (あかね雲) just one of her many beautiful songs that will put the listener under a spell. Below the lyrics with Furigana provided. The English translation done personally, which might not be perfect, but hopefully conveying the meaning and scenes.
