Short narrative of a music lover Vol.7 Bob Marley - Africa Unite

My Favorite CD

There is a swirling sense of uneasy, unsettling times ahead. Climate change, the crisis of democracy, the suffocation of capitalism, life getting longer and longer, dreams getting be inflated bigger and bigger. We seem to be facing a big problem. What meaning can music have in such times? Looking back, I've faced a lot of anxiety. Every time there have been songs that have helped me to move on. I'd like to introduce you to some of those songs at the end of this year.

First up is Bob Marley, whose voice is always full of love. Even when he's singing songs full of anger, his voice is always full of love. When I was in junior high school, the phrase "Everything's gonna be alright" at the end of "No woman, no cry" saved my worried mind so many times. Yes, don't worry, everything's gonna be alright. This time I want to introduce his other song. He was standing up straight just like one will, right hand raised, gently swaying and hurling a soulful mixture of anger at the current situation, hope for the future and love for the people. This is the song that really moved me when I saw his live on TV.

Now, do I still have a dream? I think what makes human as human is playing and dreaming.

It doesn't matter even if it's a made-up dream
or a thing that just pops into one's head
We turn it into reality.
That's the shape we are

The words of this song make me face to some dream, try something bluffing and try it, to keep turning it into reality. There is no reason to be needed. I dare say it's because I'm alive.

「Baumkuchen」The HIGH-LOWS

Something new is about to come. In fact, maybe that's where anxiety comes from. Why does the arrival of something new make us sometimes interesting or sometimes scary? I don't have a clear answer to that, but this song definitely makes me think that new things are interesting. Something's going to happen, and it's going to be great.

「Lonely Woman」Ornette Coleman

When I listen to this Sly's song, I can't help wishing for a smile on everyone's face. When other people smile, it makes you smile too. This simple song that G is keeping on to the end have a magic power that make everyone face up. Sly didn't have a happy life after this, but this song has always made people happy. Creating such a rich melody with just one chord, Sly is a real genius.

「Everyday People」Sly & the family stone

Finally, here's a song of mine. "It's a time of uncertainty, but we're OK." It's almost cheeky of me, but I hope it makes you feel that way.

Jody Lyrics: Kaneko Chalin

Jody, something wrong is coming
Jody, something strong is coming
Jody, something long is coming
Jody, are we alright?

Jody, something like priest is coming
Jody, something like thief is coming
Jody, something swift is coming
Jody, are we alright?

We are people in power, and we can go them forward
Yes we can include them in light
Jody, everything gonna be alright

Jody, something unclear is coming
Jody, something like tear is coming
Jody, something from rear is coming
Jody, are we alright?

Jody, something like trend is coming
Jody, something like friend is coming
Jody, something like end is coming
Jody, are we alright?

We are people in power, and we can go them forward
Yes we can include them in light
Jody, everything gonna be alright
