SUPERGOOD SUPERBAD review by Tomohisa Yamashita (translation)

TV Guide (Kanto version)

January 22 – 28 2011

To be released January 26, Tomohisa Yamashita’s first album “SUPERGOOD, SUPERBAD”

Yamapi gives his own comments on all the songs.

Disc 1 – SUPERGOOD

1. 抱いてセニョリータ (Daite Senorita)

“It’s a song about wanting to be held by my senorita.  Sorry to just repeat the title (laughs)”

2. はだかんぼー(Album version) (Hadakanbo)

“Who needs lies, go as your true self.  The lyrics are about baring your heart and letting out what is truly you.  ‘脱いで脱いで(take it off, take it off)’ repeats a lot too.  I hope businessmen can sing this when they’re having a bad day.”

3. 月と太陽のラブソディ(Tsuki to Taiyo no Rhapsody)

“It’s a song aimed at a rival; like, ‘I won’t lose to you but you better not lose to me either’.  It’s got a hint of Showa period feel and a global view.”

4.Crazy You

“It’s a song that says…’I’ve fallen completely and crazily in love with you!'”

5. サンタマリア (Santa Maria)

“Thoughts about admiring Saint Mary.”

6. 溺愛ROBOT (Dekiai ROBOT)

“A song about…’I’m going to give you heaps of love’.”

7. 罪と罰 (Tsumi to Batsu)

“This is a really up-tempo dance number, everything about if from the arrangement.  The ‘Yamapi’ calls are fun too.  It’s got a taste of the 1980’s.  I think its old feel is cool too!”

8. 口づけでアディオス (Kuchiduke de Adios)

“‘Adios’ is Spanish (laughs).  Please listen to the song for the rest.”

9. 青春アミーゴ(Seishun Amigo) by Shuji & Akira

“It’s a memorable song I sang with (Kazuya) Kamenashi!”

10. 最強のラブ・ソング(Saikyo no Love Song)

“This is my first ballad.  It’s emotional.”

BONUS TRACKS (only available on regular edition)

11. 青 (Ao)

“This is a song I wrote the music and lyrics to when I was 19.  A lot of fans had requested this song so we recorded it properly and were able to put it in the album.  Please have a listen!”

Disc 2 – SUPERBAD

1. Theme of “SUPERBAD”

“It might only be the intro, but it has power!”

2. Tokyo Sinfonietta

“This is a song that says, ‘ Tokyo is city like this’.  Many kinds of dreams come true here.  Dreams do come true okay!”

3. PARTY DON’T STOP (feat. DJ DASK)

“Like the title says, it’s the perfect dance song for a party!”

4. One in a million

“This is another dance song, and it naturally makes you want to move your body!”

5. Yours Baby

“A little mellow, but it’s a song that suits that mirrorball scene.”

6. ONE GIRL

“It’s a very pop song!”

7. Loveless

“It’s a slightly sad song about love having come to an end.”

8. ごめんね (Gomen-ne)

“It’s a song that you’d sing to a girl when you’re sorry.  I can’t say anything more about it from my mouth so please listen to the rest yourselves.  I’m sorry! (laughs)”

9. Blood Diamond

“It sounds cool and heavy.  It is a very cool song so please check it out!”

10. Sleepwalking

“This is a love song.  It describes how no one can wake me up from it…how I can’t get out of love.”

BONUS TRACKS (only available on regular edition)

11. Touch You

“This song’s motif is a mobile phone.  It describes how calling isn’t enough and I want to feel you.”

12. TOMO

“‘TOMO’ comes from the ‘TOMO’ of ‘Tomohisa’.  You’ll have to hear it to know what kind of song it is!”

13. Friday Night

“You won’t be able to listen to this unless it’s Friday, but that makes it special (laughs).  It’s an up-tempo number about meeting a girl.”

14.  MOLA (R-midwest REMIX)

“MOLA is Spanish for ‘cool’.  It brings out that taste in the song!”

    Thank you! It’s always interesting to know what Yamashita san’s thinking about his songs, his personal description of them helps to understand him better.

      @Natalie:

      You’re welcome 🙂

      I thought it would be a nice introduction before his album was released.

    Yes! I love this song so much. Cannot wait to get a CD-quality track. He should write more songs himself 🙂

    I laughed irl at his comment on Friday Night. XD can’t believe there’s a song named after himself.

    Thank you for translating~

      @Kira:

      It took me a while to realise it was from his name as well! Lol.
      Wonder what kind of song it is………

      You’re welcome 🙂

    I am so looking forward to listening to AO.
    Hearing his thoughts translated through his lyrics at the age of 19 will be a treat for me.

    Thanks Momo

      @kishi:

      It wouldn’t have been too long after he had made his debut with NEWS eh.

      Thanks for reading 🙂
