Hi guys, welcome to Episode 14 of Tenny’s Tunes. I am your host, Tenny. Hope everyone is safe and healthy.
This was arguably the most popular Japanese song in 2014 (by Wagakki Band, a Japanese rock band that uses traditional instruments). I was still in middle school back then, and my range of preference for music was a bit narrow. The melody didn’t appeal to me for some reason, but at least it was pleasing to the ear. One thing I didn’t get was why people were so crazy over the tempo or speed of the song, creating their own versions and remixes that were even faster than the original piece. To me, showing off skills for the sake of it didn’t do the music justice at all.
Nevertheless, I decided to revisit this piece in honor of that era. If you wanna see me playing it, here is the link to the video. Hope you enjoy.
This is NBN Audio.
