Hurting for a Very Hurtful pain - VY1/VY2

Konnichiwa everyone! I once again apologize for me being gone for so long again! Here's my reasons..

  • I started to learn to write Japanese again so I have heavy homework. AUGH D:
  • I am soon doing a solo for my dance studio and I have so much damn contracts to sign, I have to choose songs, I have to do so much T^T
  • I started to stream on twitch.tv for League of Legends or whatever I feel like playing.
  • Beside the fact I have solo dance stuff, I still have summer classes for dance also and yea. > <
  • I recently finished my testing for my Archery Class and Fencing so I have to tutor kids now GAHH
  • Summer..plans..the usual
Only listing six since that is my favorite number :3 I dunno why..Six is just a very close number to me since I turned 3 HAH~!

But going on to the song, I really like the song. The meaning of it is still unsure to me at this point. I have many theories to it so I'll list one.

VY1 and VY2 are not officially listed as brother and sisters so for this theory, VY1 is a person and VY2 is his other side or something like that. VY1 is struggling with life and he's trying to push through depression. There for, he's hurting over a hurtful pain. His shadow, VY2, keeps reminding him about depression and saying 'go away' for the meaning of 'leave life.' Later in the song, VY1 is finally free and he is happy, but VY2 comes back and he goes through the cycle again.

And the song obviously is not VY1 and VY2..I just LOVE this version..I do I'm sorry! I just love how the song fits with their voices better! It sounds so...GAHH LOVE IT!!

I'll try to be more active if I have the time. Till then..CYA!!

Lorde - Royals

That kind of love just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz.

Yo yo yo. It's Tennie. :D

Since it's been a while, and I lied about updating sooner, I have decided to ATTEMPT and make a schedule of when I should/can post.
Because I need to learn how to follow schedules. Ugh.

Well, this song is about (in my opinion, because I honestly am not sure at all what this song is about. o.o) ambition.
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies.

And I'm not proud of my address, in a torn up town,
No post code envy.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler, you can call me queen B,
And baby I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule I'll rule,
Let me live that fantasy.
We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
We're bigger than we ever dreamed, and I'm in love with being queen,
Oooooh ooooh ohhhhh life is game without a care.
Let me live that fantasy. 

Those are the lines that I've picked out from the song that seem to exemplify ambition. She sings that she wants to be queen. Hence the line, let me live that fantasy. Let me be your ruler, you can call me Queen B.

And... That's about it.


Okay. Thanks for reading! See you all next time.


And I'm not proud of my address, in a torn-up town. No post code envy.

Yasashisa no Riyuu – ChouCho

Yo! It's me Kalman again.

Recently, I got into an anime called "Hyouka" (or Hyōka) and I'm loving every bit of it; the premise, the characters, the story, the animation, the opening music... It goes on, really. The animation, done by the wonderful Kyoto Animation studio (which also produced popular shows such as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, K-On! (and its sequel), Nichijou, and so forth) is what I consider movie quality. It is top-notch and I cannot gush as much as I want to about it. For a 24-episode series, the animation does it more than justice, adding on with its wonderful characters and a story that fits so well altogether.

But, that's not the point about the blog!

The music is something that I think would fit well into a romance, but at the same time, it doesn't have to. What I think of this is that people dream of themselves or others when it comes to self-importance. It really matters to youths and adults alike, as I believe no one wants to be forgotten or left behind to be remembered as something they're not.

The video above is only the opening to the anime, but the full song is below:

But for now...

Helix Nebula – Anamanaguchi

Yo! Kalman here!

This piece of music is something I found when I played "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World The Game," and I've grown to love chiptune music.

Anamanaguchi creates these awesome arcadey soundtracks that brings a factor of excitement, nostalgia, and awesome. Like honestly, when it was a really sunny day in my city, travelling with Anamanaguchi playing just brings adventure even though I was just standing still on the train.

Having been out since 2004, I was surprised that I did not have anymore of there music. Chiptune is definitely a niche for those who loved the sound of the consoles and arcades of days past. Go and listen to all of their albums! Go!

But for now...

Tonari no Totoro – ALL THAT JAZZ


First of all, I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Kalman, and from today forward, I will be an admin on omelet's music.

Anyway, to business!

I'd like to start off my first post with a great smooth jazz piece from the ALL THAT JAZZ album, Tonari no Totoro. Both the original and this rendition gives a happy vibe, but unlike the original, the jazz version makes you dancing.

The album itself is rare to find, but lucky for us, YouTube is there for us! The whole album can be played on this one video.

I hope enjoy it! But for now...

The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather

I hate the beach, but I stand in California with my toes in the sand.

Hi guys! Happy June. It's finally summer vacation, or coming up for a lot of you. :)
My school year's over, so there's not really much for me to do but:

  • read
  • play video games :3
  • babysit my little brother
  • learn Japanese
  • run more
  • exercise more, generally
  • and do more with my life that I never bothered to do before.

I'm kind of excited for summer.

But back to the song!
I can't interpret this song without sounding like a fake.
Thus, I will find answers off of the great internet!
Is it possible this song revolves around the speaker admitting that they are currently in a relationship of infidelity? 
SHE knows what I think about...just US, YOU find out. Nothing that we don't wanna tell you about.
At first listen, it sounded like a cute song but after listening to it a few times, it sounds more like a confessional. There's a You and there's a She and I think they're different people. He's having a relationship on the side and he's telling "you" that it's too cold here; he can't offer her his sweater, but he can offer her a place in the holes of his sweater. 
She's getting somebody else's leftovers. Am I off?

This answer conflicts with this one:
He wants a woman he can't have. He's singing to her.

She knows he wants her and there's an obvious mutual attraction but nothing can happen due to the situation... he'll settle with holding her hands in the holes of his sweater. 

This song has nothing to do with a threesome or women. It's one woman he wants that he can't have.
Oh, she knows what I think about 
And what I think about 
One love, two mouths (him and her) 
One love, one house (him and her) 
No shirt, no blouse 
Just us, you find out (he wants her to be curious) 
Nothing I really wanna tell you about no 
'Cause it's too cold whoa 
For you here 
And now, so let me hold whoa 
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

And there was another response about having a threesome, which I just did not want to post. ;n;"

Please, do listen to the song. I'd like to hear your responses.
Have a great summer!

One love, one house. No shirt, no blouse.
