MONORAL's latest iTune single was released last month, and since we can't buy it in our country, i'm quite satisfied when i finally got a download link from somewhere. yes, i know it's illegal, but i do hope the band (and the management) will forgive me, because i prefer buying CD to digital file. if this were released in CD, then i will definitely buy it, because i love the song.

niken, my fellow in adoring this band, said that this song reminds her of Smashing Pumpkins (and i kinda agree), while i myself thought of MONORAL's Costarica and VAMPS Times Go By. the similarity gives the feeling of familiarity. it's easy to fall in love with this song, with Anis' voice and Ali's bass (which i think becomes more playful and pretty).

we haven't found official lyrics yet. so we (that's niken and i) decided to get our own rendition of the lyrics, just to sing along with. it could be partially wrong. english is not our mother tongue, and our brain sometimes dictates what we want to hear.

input, corrections are welcome. if you find the official lyrics to this song, please guide me there, and i will edit this entry accordingly.

with out further boring chit chat from me, here's our rendition of 70HOURS.


70 HOURS

70 hours from here to where you're from
show me your castle
i'll breathe and save the frown
i don't need that much if
maybe we were lost
70 hours for me to carry on
and define my love for you

all we have is all we have
you filled my head with words
and then
cast away from here

all we have is all we have
you'd fill my head with words
and then
cast away from here

70 hours before you place your trust
just 70 hours to wash away your doubt
we don't have the time for sharing all our past
70 hours for me to carry on
so define your love for me

all we have is all we have
you'd fill my head with words
and then
cast away from here

all we have is all we have
you'd tear my head with words
and then
cast away from me

feel the sun with you
everything so wonderful
take me for a ride
everything so wonderful
meet my fate with God
everything so wonderful
let me fall for you
everything so wonderful

oh so wonderful

let's cast away from here

all we have is all we have
you fill my head with words
and then
cast away from here

all we have is all we have
you'd tear my head with words
and then we
cast away from here

all we have is all we have
you fill my head with words
and then
cast away from here



all we have is all we have
you'd tear my head with words
and then we
cast away from here

70 hours from me to where you're from

i was browsing like a lost child in the web world when i found out this:

Cast (13)
.....
DJ DJ アリ森泉 MORIIZUMI Ali 1-13 1-13

this is from the staff list of Serial Experimental Lain, a very famous psychological anime back in early 2000's.

Seriously ... Can I die now?

Morizumi Ali casted in a very famous anime and I didn't know.
Now I need to fetch that anime and watch it, just to check the credit.

*runs to get the anime*

Here it goes, a more-or-less my graps of what Ali-san wrote in MONORAL blog, by special request of Niken (and yes, as long as she wants it and providing that I have spare time, I will continue translating MONORAL blog entry and maybe Anis’ entry from his BBS later). I’m not sure, if it’s OK translating MONORAL’s blog. But if maybe, someone from the management or the band itself doesn’t like to see my translation (because this is crappy and they can speak English fluently), I’d be more that grateful if they tell me so and I will turn this down. MONORAL’s wish is my command. Hahahaha…!!


what ali said... )



Happy ANISversALI to MONORAL ~ ♥♫

Long live!! Stay cool!! And I hope that we will see each other soon in one of your gigs!!
