Sweet Talk: くちづけを残して。

Welcome to 'Sweet Talk' where I'll be highlighting some phrases in other languages that I think we can all connect with!

Today we have Ikimono Gakari teaching us about lost love with "Light of the Fireflies." They're a great Japanese band and you should definitely check out more of their work!

くちづけを残して。

(kuchi-zuke wo noko-shite)

Leave with a kiss.

くちづけ (kuchi-zuke)- A kiss
を (wo)- (object particle^^)
残して (nokoshite) - To leave

Do you have any particular goodbye kiss that you remember?

I had a kiss with my ex boyfriend after prom as he walked me to my door. that kiss led to other things with no talk. A kiss can speak without words
I blogged about this particular way of learning Japanese, it is fun to learn something with music.
@RoCP I didn't until like a month or two ago, but it only lasted two weeks. (I'm 17 now) we never kissed through. Good luck to you and your first!
I don't have a goodbye kiss that is memorable. Wanna fix that, OP?
Nope lol living the single life since day one but I will be living the taken one in six years WHICH IS TO FAR AWAY

Why Don't Idol Groups Work In America?
In Japan and Korea, idols are a huge deal. The fandoms surrounding idols and idol groups are massive, with a ton of merch, lingo, events, etc surrounding the entertainers. So why isn't that happening in America? The UK tried it out with One Direction and we have a few girl groups like Fifth Harmony and Little Mix, but for the most part the classic pop group ensemble faded away in the early 2000s. Here are a few reasons why it might not work: I'm not saying either opinion is correct - just stating how the general public views celebrities in America vs Korea/Japan. I'm not an expert on either so please share your opinions as well! 1. The Concept of Being An Idol Sure, celebrities in the US know that they are role models, but do they really take this as their job?! In Japan and Korea, a single slip up can mean public humiliation (such as when an AKB48 member had a boyfriend - she had to shave her head as an apology) while in America celebrities insist on their personal rights to do whatever they want. In their opinion, just because you're a celebrity doesn't mean you aren't allowed a personal life. They should be able to be in the lime light but also have a lot of personal life that shouldn't be judged by the public, In Japan/Korea, every aspect of an entertainers life is analyzed and people know that is just part of the job. You must be a model citizen at all times and any bad behaviour (whether its on or off camera) is bad for your company, your career, and your fans. 2. Company Loyalty In America, we know the big companies like Warner, Sony, etc, but we rarely pay attention to what label each artist is on. And even if they're on the same label they don't really work together so its hard for fans to be loyal to one company. The closest I think we can get to that is waaay back with Motown Records or more recently the bands that came out on Fueled By Ramen. Smaller hip hop labels still keep this group style too! We could actually see the connection the artists had on those labels and could support the label as well as the artists. Now in Korea, we all know that companies are a big deal. YG Family, JYP, Cube, SM, etc. They do things together like concerts, Christmas songs, etc. We are able to anticipate the company's new project or collaboration. It's easier for the fans to get hyped over multiple groups at once. 3. Pre-Packaged In America, bands are usually put together by the band members. Whether they start in a garage or they put up flyers to find members, it is the band that forms first, then the label that signs them. In Korea and Japan however, we have a TON of trainees all hoping to be perfectly placed in a group. Think of the show Produce! Perfect example of prepackaging :) One Direction is an example of that happening where the boys were somewhat put together by a label, but musical and personality differences got in the way :/ 4. Training Idols train a LOT. Sure, in America entertainers practice, train, get vocal lessons, learn new instruments, get prepped for interviews etc but they are not forced to practice for 12 hours a day. Living in dorms without cell phones or internet, being forced to learn languages, dances, public speaking, etc - its totally normal in the idol world. Because of this, idols should be pretty prepared for anything. I'm not so sure American entertainers would be up for this style of training. Can you think of other reasons why the "idol" style of the music industry doesn't work in America?
When is the best time to listen to music
Art can mold people's sentiments and cultivate people's interest. Music, like a clear spring, nourishes people's hearts. I like art, especially music, I think: beautiful melody is better than all languages. I like music, because she has a thousand reasons to be desirable. When I was unpleasant, the music opened my heart to tell her, so as to get rid of the dark cloud of depression; when I was hit, the music immersed me in it, and slowly explored the truth of "the more frustrated the more courageous". When I was proud and complacent, I found a kind of open-minded and calm mood in the music, as if I got rid of the world and came to the paradise; when I was relaxed and happy, I would like to share with this eternal friend and compose the melodious together. Movement. I can’t live without singing, because singing accompanied me through a happy childhood and step into a colorful and beautiful life. I like to fly on the wings of singing, singing makes my ordinary days full of vitality and vitality; singing is like a shower of rain, making me moisten up in boring days; singing is like a piece of sunshine, making people live in depressive days . Singing is the neon light on the stage of life, which can make the ordinary life colorful. Singing is the bond that conveys feelings, it is a ray of spring breeze, a clear spring, a warm and comfortable pill, and an inspiring and strong heart. I like to listen to songs in the dark. Putting on the earphones, lying on the bed, closing his eyes, the surrounding area was pitch black, as if in the chaos of ignorance. At this time, a blast of singing came, like a breeze blowing in front of you, taking you to fly and exploring. Listening to the singer telling the story in his heart, feeling the beating of each note in the long river of music, and then think about how you once felt, your current mood, even if your current emotions are like a big wave out of control, or your thoughts are free in the sky Shuttle will stay in it for a long time. Listening to songs is always in quiet times, and few people listen to them in great sadness and joy. Nevertheless, listening to songs is also a kind of emotional catharsis. Music can be your close friend and tell you his story when you are sad and lonely: it can also calm you down and make your body follow your thoughts when you are excited or angry. Relax slowly. I don't like listening to music without choosing, unless it is absent-minded or forced. Good songs can purify your mind, and bad songs can only make you nauseous. As for the kind of songs that are neither good nor bad, songs that do not have their own style can only make you waste precious time. When it is quiet, find a few good music, use flvto youtube to mp3 to download them, whether it is rock or blues, whether it is folk or pop songs, whether it is ordinary or classic, or whether you can understand it, as long as you like it, as long as it does not violate copyright ,as long as it is a good song.
