Hello, forum friends

Here is my second submission for Xtra Styles PAK 5 Song Contest.
The category is Country.
This song was written about 20 years ago,
Recently I happened to find the individual vocal track of this song when searching the music folders of my old computers.
So, I remade it with Xtra Styles PAK 5 for the submission this time.
It is a story of junior high school girls.

Title: コンサートの帰り道 (Translation: On the way home from the concert)
Vocal: TAKAKO, our local jazz vocalist

Summary of lyrics:

The last song was over but our cheeks are still hot
We feel somewhat lonely and sometimes we are quiet
How do you think where we will be after ten years, my friends?
I wonder if we all are becoming pretty after ten years

Soon tomorrow comes again and we say "Good morning"
The chime of the start-up rings as usual time
Someone rewrites the date of the corner of the blackboard
I like one of my classmates but maybe we will not become more than friends

The stars of the night sky we look up will not change forever
I wish we can smile with glitter forever

We walk praying on the way home below the starry night
This road continues to each heart of us
I will not forget the warmth of the hands we connect
I wish we all can go forward with our current feelings kept

Hi Shigeki,

This is very pretty! Takako has such a lovely voice. You are fortunate to have her. This is very Pop-ish country. It's such a nice listen - I really enjoyed this! Good luck in the contest!

Crisp, clean, quality, masterfully produced and mixed.

It's always excellent to get exposure to real perfection.

This production is no exception.

I really admire your ability to create such innocent and romantic musical landscapes. Very beautiful vocals, touching lyrics and great arrangement, those guitars have nice mournful sound that suits the melancholy mood of this song.

Shigeki,

Its always a pleasure listening to your music and Takako has such a warm engaging voice. The melody flows and use of the Americana tracks works well on the ballad you brought back to life.
The pan flute at the close added a nice touch.
Very enjoyable!

I've only been a member of this forum for a week or so, but through my browsing of old threads I've already learned one thing: If I see a song uploaded by you it is a "MUST listen to" signal to me, because what you do is always of such a high quality!

I applaud you!

Will

Hello, Janne

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune and the vocalist.
I much appreciate your comment to the lyrics.
These lyrics were written by a colleague of the company I had worked for before.
The lyricist is a woman.
I think that these lyrics can not be written by male lyricists after all.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.
