YUI – My Generation

“My Generation” by YUI is the theme song for J-Dorama Seito Shokun! (生徒諸君!), starring Uchiyama Rina, Shiina Kippei, and Horikita Maki. Based on the manga of the same name by 庄司陽子 (Shouji Youko), it was a dorama about the relationship between students, teachers, and parents. “My Generation” is very typical song of YUI. Probably best known in the Anime circle for her OP & ED themes for BLEACH, she is one of the better composer/singers of the recent years.

Unfortunately, “My Generation” is perhaps too typical of YUI’s music. It has nice composition, an easy melody, and good lyrics, and the singing is really not bad as well. While YUI’s voice is a bit high pitch and could be quite squeaky at times, the songs is quite enjoyable. The problem is that the song is really typical of YUI, and it really lacks a special character and it sound pretty much the same as the rest of her other songs. It was really gratifying to hear “ROLLING STAR”, since that song was really atypical of her with the faster rock style. It was a bit sad that this song when back to her typical stuff.

With that being said, the single was still pretty enjoyable, although “Understand” is a bit on the boring side. Not the best of YUI so far, IMHO, but not something I’d use to introduce YUI to friends, but this single really is typical of YUI. Nothing fancy, maybe, but good listening.

歌詞 / Lyrics:

グランドに吹いた風を
ちいさな窓から吸い込んで ため息

期待することに イヤんなって
孤独になったけれど

でも諦めたつもりじゃなかった

チャイムが鳴り終われば
現実はもっと 早く進んでゆくでしょ?

窓ガラス 割るような
気持ちとはちょっと 違ってたんだ

はじめから自由よ

My Dream 言葉に出来ないだけなのに
誰でもいいからと傷つけて泣いた夜
わかってほしいなんて思わないけど
描いた夢を信じきれない弱さにただ支配されてた
Sixteen My Dream

制服 脱ぎ捨てた 16のアタシに
負けたくはないから

うしろ指 さされたって
振り向いたりしなかった

あたしならまだやれるはずだって

犠牲にできないのは
こみ上げる希望 無くしたら また道に迷うだけ

邪魔なんてされたくない
わかっているの 覚悟があれば

いつだって自由よ

My Dream 壊れることなんてないから
待ちきれない季節の中 歩き始めたの
うつむいてた時間を取り戻して
描いた夢を強く信じきれた時から変わる Generation
Sixteen My Dream

ひび割れた校舎の壁にもたれて
誓ったの 叶えてみせるから

My Dream 言葉に出来ないだけなのに
描いた夢を信じきれない弱さにただ支配されてた
Sixteen My Dream
