I have seen that add on youtube 15 secs long can't wait too see the english version released but for some reason I prefer the japanese version but the thing is I don't know the meanings of the mirai yosouzu songs but I think there about love between two people and stuff.

But I like mirai 1 and 2 especially 2 even though I like part 1 oh what the hell I like them both.
masa and miwa and taka too
even though there now a duo dreams come true. :)

Guys, the 30 sec version is up on YouTube! It is going to be one of their best English songs if not THE best! I feel like their English songs are a hit or miss kind of thing. Either they turn out amazing like "See You in My Dreams" or
strange like "Another Day Without You" - despite the fact I absolutely love "Asa Ga Mata Kuru", I simply cannot like its English version.

I gonna make one bold future prediction here: I think Mirai Yosouzu II in English will be released on the limited edition DVD of DWL 2007. :)

nakoruru, how do we find the 30-second version? All I can find is the Japanese '07 version.

'See You in My Dreams' works so well because it is a standard jazz rhythm- the "ad lib jazz cymbal beat" as my "Jazz Around the Drums" book told me. 'Another Day Without You' is tougher because it is about as good as you can do with a translation of the lyrics, although I wish they wouldn't have substituted 'taxicabs' for 'bicycles'- my wife and I think that we will probably both be killed by bicyclists in Tokyo while walking.

I think bicycles was changed to taxicabs because it was the world wide version and I dunno americanise it like the english version of Tokyo atlas is called New York Altas.

And also miwa I think likes new york like in Song of Joy worldwide version video clip was shot there and moshimo yuki nara video clip I just wish they would release some of there old classic hits in english. Translation may be a problem and it seems hit and miss I guess I would like to see songs like "Kessen wa Kinyoubi" , "Eyes to Me", "Haretara ii Ne" , "Ureshi Hazukashi Asagaeri", " Love Goes On"
could name more its just how they would sound and would they change how it sounds.

Ala ureshii tanoshii dasuki english version I like how it sounded and it reminded me of the 15th aniversary version a bit but i wish it sounded like the japanese version the music with the whole synths ,drums, sax ect. dct style lol.

Im not complaining dct rocks and i do like there japanese songs I really like Kyo Dake Wa I played that song and my sisters friend kinda like danced to it or was moving around lol I think she liked it. She knows about my dct obsession but she doesn't like them I dont think lol. :)

Thanks, Spaceman- I found I just wasn't using the Honda CM info website properly.

There is now a 1:54 clip as well as the :30. It shows the filming, which is pretty cool, plus more of the track towards the end. Check it out!

nakoruru, I agree with you- this sounds like a very good English version. I hope we can hear the entire track soon, but I guess I could wait for that DVD version!

Another great English version I had forgotten about is Sayonara. It was only released as a b-side for Wherever You Are but in my opinion, it deserved to be in some album!

You know, the exact same phrase in Japanese feels completely different in English - that is true for any language at all, to be honest. That's why literal lyric translations end up being awkward. Even with similar languages. I have seen few Kraftwerk songs that had actual lyrics in German fall off flat when translated to English.

Though I absolutely love the English version of "Itsu no ma ni", "I was born into this world crying" simply doesn't feel the same to me as "nakinagara umareta no ni".

I agree with you on 'Sayonara', nakoruru- a very good translation. You feel the meaning of the song in English just as well as the Japanese.

I Would hate for this song to get released as a special single with the 2011 wonderland dvd for the first 50,00 people lol that would suck. Plus I don't think I can wait that long for one song lol.

I imagine that they will release a single version a little sooner- by 2011, some people will have forgotten that it exists!
