消えた今夜のほころび ずっと前にも 呼んでいた その名を 見かけた時には消えてた 影の方から 呼んでいた その名を 遠ければ遠い程 気づいてたくせに僕ら 煮えたぬかるむわだちを 慣らすその日 呼んでいた その名を

Disney Girls 04:38
Clearing skies and drying eyes Now I see your smile Darkness goes and softness shows A changing style Just in time words that rhyme Well bless your soul Now I'll fill your hands With kisses and a Tootsie Roll Oh reality, it's not for me And it makes me laugh Oh, fantasy world and Disney girls I'm coming back Patti Page and summer days On old Cape Cod Happy times making wine In my garage Country shade and lemonade Guess I'm slowing down It's a turned back world With a local girl In a smaller town Open cars and clearer stars That's what I've lacked But fantasy world and Disney girls I'm coming back Love...Hi Rick and Dave Hi Pop...Well good morning mom Love...get up guess what I'm in love with a girl I found She's really swell Cause she likes Church, bingo chances and old time dances All my life I spent the night With dreams of you And the warmth I missed And for the things I wished They're all coming true I've got my love to give And a place to live Guess I'm gonna stay It'd be a peaceful life With a forever wife And a kid someday It's earlier nights And pillow fights And your soft laugh Fantasy world and Disney girls I'm coming back

about

What To Do Next / Disney Girls

What To Do Next
"What To Do Next" is a song about the answers that existed in me from the beginning.
A song of dream pop feeling with a middle tempo featuring a mellotron-like tone.
Overdrived guitar phrases are freely played based on simple drums, bass, and acoustic guitar strokes, And layered vocals and choruses are mixed relaxing harmonies on top of them. Also, the lyrics are deeply Interacted to the next song "Disney Girls" and include word play.
This work was composed around 2009. The first version is only violent-sounding guitar, vocals, and chorus, and since around 2016, it has been re-arranged and includes a mellotron, etc.

Disney Girls
"Disney Girls" is a cover song of the song recorded in "Surf's Up" (1971) by The Beach Boys.
Longing for Brian Wilson, and "God Only Knows" is still the best song for me, but I chose this song this time.
Beautiful lyrics and melodies written by Bruce Johnston that will heart ache, I always wanted to cover such a masterpiece.
This time, the 3/4 beat is not changed, added the bouncing rhythm, and the mellotron that is similar to the previous song. It has arranged to create a feeling that is a bit different from the slow original song.
Also, the chorus with many layers was in line with the original song. Through the work, I was once again impressed by The Beach Boys's chorus work.

otom's new work "What To Do Next / Disney Girls" is based on the concept of the past and future of consciousness. Please enjoy yourself.

日本のミュージシャン、作曲家のotom(オトム)。
エクスペリメンタルポップ、ドリームポップを中心に実験音楽、ドローン、エレクトロニック、ノイズ等の音楽を手掛けています。
2020年12月リリースの『What To Do Next /Disney Girls』は意識の過去未来をコンセプトに仕上げた作品です。

What To Do Next
『What To Do Next』は最初から自分の中に存在している答えについて歌った曲。
メロトロン風な音色が特徴のミドルテンポで少しザラついたドリームポップ的雰囲気。
シンプルなドラム、ベース、アコースティックギターの刻みをベースにドライヴしたギターフレーズを自由に演奏し、その上にレイヤーを重ねたボーカルとコーラスの力を抜いたハーモニーを絡ませている。また、歌詞は次曲『Disney Girls』と関連を深めた内容で逆説的な遊びを含めている。
2009年頃に作曲した当初は暴力的サウンドのギターとボーカル、コーラスのみの構成のところから、2016年頃よりメロトロンなどを加えた編成にアレンジし直して現在の形に至っている。

Disney Girls
『Disney Girls』はザ・ビーチ・ボーイズの『Surf's Up』(1957)に収録された曲のカヴァー曲。
ブライアン・ウィルソンに憧れ、『God Only Knows』こそ至高の一曲なのは変わらないものの、今回はこの曲を選択。
ブルース・ジョンストンの書いた心を締め付ける様な美しい歌詞とメロディー。そんな名曲をカヴァーする機会を伺い続けて今回に至っている。
3/4はそのままに弾ける様なリズムと前曲から踏襲したメロトロンで構築し、スローな原曲とは一味違う雰囲気に仕上げている。
また幾重にも重ねたコーラスは原曲に沿ったものの、作業を通じて本家のコーラスワークに改めて感嘆させられた。

どうぞ楽しんで下さい。
