sasakure.UK x DECO*27 – Snow Song Show feat. Hatsune Miku

3 Comments

Just a while ago, U/M/A/A Inc.’s YouTube channel and Nico Nico Douga channel uploaded a new collaboration work between DECO*27 and sasakure.UK! The song is titled “Snow Song Show”, and is created to welcome and celebrate this year’s Christmas, which should be around in no time.

The song tells us a story about a Christmas night in the near future, in which the memories about Christmas have already vanished from people’s hearts—and how Miku decided to bring everyone a gift in the form of a song, as to make them remember the meaning of Christmas. The flowing music warmed everyone’s heart, even in the cold winter. As some people might not be able to understand the lyrics, I’ll be talking about the song’s overview now. Also, descent87 provided the subtitles for the song. For those of you who want to sing along, I have also provided the romanized lyrics below. (^ o ^)

Lalala…

mata waraeru you ni

utsumuku kao yuki no wadachi gairoju no kuroko tachi
toki to tomo ni furitsumotta kanashimi de yukidaruma

sonnanya dayo chotto matte
kattette iwaretatte
atashi ga nantoka shite miseru yo
akai ishō ni mi o tsutsunde yozora kara purezento
doko made mo todoke

utau yo lalalala
hora machi o someru kono uta de
wasurerareta ano hi o
omoidashite aishite mata waraeru you ni

utsumuku kao yuki no wadachi gairoju no hoshi keshō
toki to tomo ni akaruku naru machi o narasu ashioto

‘daijina koto o wasureteitanda, itsuno mani-mani wasurechattanda’
“sora tobu sori no nanto kasan” toka
“sono yoru no kutsushita no okiba sho” mo
“asa okita toki no ano doki-doki” mo
“gucha-gucha ni shita hako no akekata” mo
‘itsushika minna ageru gawa ni naru, dare ka no egao o morau hi ga kuru’

sonna konna arimashite
nacchattanda santa-san ni
12 tsuki 27 nichi no koto
nee chotto kore tte masaka
atashi no namae mitai?!
tokashita sekai ni mirai ga furu

sora kara hara-hara ochite kuru yuki no naka ni
kimi o mita yo nee kiita yo
ano hi no Snow Song Show o

utau yo lalalala
hora machi o someru kono uta de
wasurerareta * ano hi * o
omoidashite aishite mata waraeru you ni

tsumuideku mirai e no kono merodi

The song is prefaced by Miku seeing a flashback of her past Christmas experience as a little child. The Santa Claus gave her a music box as a present, which she happily accepted—her joy quickly followed by the Santa’s disappearance.

001

After the flashback, the music kicked in with Miku singing “lalala…” as the title appeared. The melody of the intro, which serves as the piece’s pivotal tune throughout the song, vibrantly expressed sasakure.UK’s unique and colorful composition as usual.

002

As the title faded away, the scene changed to depict the way Christmas celebration has ceased to exist.

003

Miku is then seen walking around the crowds, as she passed through “snowmans getting piled up with despair as time keeps moving”.

004

Unhappy with the way things are going, Miku—dressed as a Santa Claus—started singing as her song enveloped the town. Through the song, she told the people to remember and to treasure the day that they once did, as well as to smile again like they used to.

005

As the streets brightened up, the second verse explored more of the elements of Christmas that the people have forgotten. For example, the heart-throbbing feeling of waiting for the presents.

006

The following part also pointed out that December 27th sums up to form Miku’s name (27 + 12 = 39).

007

After that, the song moved on to the interlude, with Miku’s face being projected through lots of screens throughout the town, reminding the townsfolk of the eponymous song, “Snow Song Show”.

008

Miku began singing once more; this time, the sky’s color radiantly changed from dark blue to purple-red, implying that the whole town has been enveloped with warmness.

009

The piece is concluded with a scene where a boy is shown to receive the warmness from the song’s melody.

010

Personally, I think this song is really heartwarming. It successfully conveyed the essence of Christmas with both the simple lyrics and delicate music. Don’t be reluctant to share this post to people near you; I hope that the message from Snow Song Show would be able to let them experience and enjoy this year’s Christmas even more.

I love music, literature, science, philosophy, technology, and Japanese culture—a simple man with a passion to live life to the fullest. I like to play my guitar and compose some songs in my free time. Singing is pretty much my everyday life. Wanna know more about myself? Feel free to get in touch with me. =)
