Summary of lyrics:

I wonder when I was loved by you
I still feel like it was only yesterday

If I turn around
I feel as if you are still there and smiling

As time goes by
The trace I’d loved fade away day by day

But I have always been unable to communicate
With any other women I have known since then

Memories linger in my weakened heart
Only old dreams breathe faintly in me

When I become aware of myself
I am watching at the flow of the river
That we two were seeing side by side at that time

I remember those happy days also today
And I remember the dazzling two of us
Who dreamed of the future together

Hi Shigeki ...

I have to confess I do not know what song this is a tribute to. But I do know I like it a lot! Your arrangements are always so full and vibrant. The strings are simply gorgeous. And the YAMAHA student did an excellent job on the guitar lead. Your vocal is perfect for the songt. It was a wonderful listen. You are such a marvelous music composer!

Wishing you the best.

Alan

Really nice. Good vocal!

Nice arrangement and mix - sounds good in my headphones and speakers.

The strings are excellent - only bits in the higher register made me think then might not be actual strings. Love the string runs.

Although there are certain similarities to a certain song, it's pretty subtle.

I like this song a lot! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Lovely arrangement...the strings sing.
There're some sibilant spots in the vocal that could be tamed to enhance the overall feel.

Shigeki,
Sweetly romantic with lovely strings and a good vocal ( we don`t hear you sing often; you are in fine form).
I think I know your song reference- its subtle though.
A very good and appropriate band for the style and, as always, very well mixed.

Robert

Lovely work, Shigeki. Really enjoyed your vocal, and a wonderful arrangement - kind of like that famous song reimagined by Burt Bacharach.

Alan,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune.
And I am very happy to hear you enjoyed my vocal and YAMAHA student's guitar.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

P.S.
This song is based on The Beatles' "Yesterday", as the translated title suggests.
The motif pattern of the melody of the A part of "Yesterday" is used as it is.
However, the interval (mainly using 3 degrees below) and the chord progression were changed.
I - VIIm7 - III7 - VIm (Original), I - Vm7 - I7 - IVmaj7 (This tune)

Shigeki, your arrangements are always absolutely first class.

This is no exception. Brilliant arrangement, outstanding production. The strings in particular are quite remarkable, and all delivered through a sensational vocal.

Everything here is absolutely first class. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy this masterpiece.

Hi animarorecords,

You manage to create soft atmospheres with a choice of super well-made realtracks. The melody is very pleasant. Well done.

Man, that Bolero is such a great match. Mr. Mc would love this, I'm sure. Really nice vocals and harmonization. Wonderful tribute.
