「あさひ あびる しるえっと ぜんぶ とけて いく。」

“I Belong In Your Arms” (Japanese Version) by Chairlift | My discovery of this track was purely accidental, as a friend merely shared the video to show Caroline Powachek’s unintentional (or is it?) display of her armpit hair. It really just started with the intent to lightly discuss cultural norms on beauty and equality feminism. But I digress. To be honest, I love this version more than the one in English, mainly because her singing sounds more endearing. Usually songs give off a certain feel because of how a listener understands the words. (I think I’ve become obsessed with how she extended singing some of the words as nnn’s and mmm’s. It’s as if she was savouring the words as she sang them.) I understood nothing but a few words in English in this track, and yet I know that this can pass as one of the sweetest songs ever written. [CR]
