Following the previous release "Moulin Rouge-Shadow of Lautrec", Zettaimu has released a new single "My grandma says (2021, I also think it, as a grandpa)".

This is a remake of the song with the same title as the title of the first album released in 1989, and the feelings accumulated over the past 40 years are spun.

Hisashi (Zettaimu composer/guitarist) ;

In the 1980s, when I was in my early twenties, I went back to my  home town during my college summer vacation. In the car on our way to visit my grandfather's grave with my family, my grandmother whispered while looking at my grandfather's grave on the hillside in the distance.

"Why do humans always eat, sleep?  And repeat the same thing day after day?"

 

In one word, I was shocked as if I had seen the other side of the world that I shouldn't see, and my physical strength suddenly disappeared, and I wasn't motivated anything for a while. The words of the 77-year-old grandmother were too heavy to be supported by my soul at the time. I was just a shell.

 

Without finishing that into a song, I couldn't stand up anymore ... CATHARSIS !

 

In the LP "My grandma says" released in 1989, that kind of feeling at that time came out straight in my own way. Although the world floated in the bubble economy then, I fell in the opposite direction.

 

About 40 years after that, now that I have become an "grandpa" of a grandchild of a junior high school student, when I suddenly return to myself, the words of my grandmother at that time deeply permeated my heart, and I remade the song with her soul.

 

Now I will release "My grandma says (2021, I also think it, as a grandpa)".

​Produced, arranged and engineered by Hisashi Furue

My Grandma Says (2021, I also think it, as a grandpa)

My grandma says
"I'm 77 years old before I knew it."
"I wonder why I am always doing the same thing?"

"A long, empty life, full of boredom."

My grandma says
"My age is 77 by East Asian age reckoning"
"I got old before I did anything."

"I'm just sad to remember when I was young."

The long days that an old woman has lived
Just wrinkles on her face, her hipbone just bend
"I want to live one more. I want to live for myself."
"Live without being bound by anything."

The big dream left for the old woman
Building a own grave, just sleep in a splendid grave
"I want to live one more. I want to live for myself."
"Live without being bound by anyone."

All things must pass? All that is fair must fade?
Yes, while I am a little weary of having nothing to do

My grandma says
"I'm 77 years old before I knew it."
"I wonder why I am always doing the same thing?"

"A long, empty life, full of boredom."

 

Everyday as a matter of course
Time is very friendly

 

Everything will decline in due time.
