Alice -> Sweet

Posted by shanoah on February 17, 2010

It’s not related to U2. It’s not related to The Knack. It’s… IOSYS : The Return.

I’ve been playing one particular catchy IOSYS song (Alice -> Sweet) a bunch recently, and was just noticing that I never posted it. Not sure if this was due to matters of good taste, but I’ll rectify that now. You’ll note that this has both English translations and the original lyrics in romanji. Nice if you are trying to learn Japanese.

Oddly, I’m almost certain the line about fingertips being “bound by fate” in the translation is a reference to the “red string of fate“. The things I learn about by watching Ranma 1/2…

Now, you heard how prominent the singers lyrics were in that song. What do you think it would sound like without vocals? Very different, certainly. Take a listen.
