7月です！今は梅雨の真っ只中。早く梅雨明けしてほしいなー、なんて雨の中歩いていると近所に盛大に咲いているアジサイたちがチアガールのポンポンのように「頑張って〜！」と励ましてくれます。妄想は大切。 今年は髪をだいぶ短くした …
It’s July! Now in the middle of the rainy season. I want the rainy season to end soon. When I walk in the rain, the hydrangeas that are in full bloom in the neighborhood encourage me to do my best like a cheerleader’s pompom. Delusions are important.
This year, I’ve shortened my hair so much that I’m free from the problem of twirl due to the humidity, and I want to liven up myself and survive the rainy season! Contrary to the mood, please listen to this song that is moist and melancholy today. Bossa Nova Guitar Master Luis Astrud Gilberto sings a song from the movie of the same title by her Bonfa.

楽しそうな人たちに憧れてラテン音楽を闇雲に聴いていた時期があります。明るく陽気で情熱的。私も仲間になりたくてイベントにも色々行ったけど本気のノリについて行けず全然友達はできませんでした。 きっと私はひとりで盛り上がるのが …
There was a time when I was listening to Latin music in the dark clouds, longing for people who seemed to have fun. Bright, cheerful and passionate. I also went to various events because I wanted to be a friend, but I couldn’t keep up with the serious glue and couldn’t make friends at all.
I’m sure I like to get excited by myself, eh, I’ll dance by myself! I still do it occasionally so that no one can see it.
“Sin Ti” means “without you” in Spanish, so it’s perfect for me as a lonely person. Good songs are fun, but I like mellow songs!

今回は映画コラムからのリクエストでたくさんの名曲を生み出している偉大な音楽家、バート バカラックが手掛けた映画『明日に向かって撃て』のサントラから『捨てた家』をお届けします。 アコーディオンから始まる穏やかで優しい曲調の …
This time, we will deliver “Not Goin’Home Anything” from the soundtrack of the movie “Butch Cassidy to Tomorrow” by Burt Bacharach, a great musician who has produced many famous songs at the request of the movie column.
There is a sad feeling in the gentle and gentle tune that starts with the accordion.
I think that the soundtrack has a feeling for the song only after watching the movie, but this song is also the same, but I listened to the cover song before I knew the original, and after that, oh! Is this also a Bacharach song? No wonder it comes nicely ~ ♪ I think it’s selfish.
Bacharach’s songs are instrumental, sung by various artists, self-covered, and there is a wide variety of songs that you can listen to without getting bored.
I also have a lot of favorite songs and I can’t squeeze them, so I would like to continue to take care of Bacharach in the music column from time to time ♪

ここしばらく、あるワードを聞くたびに思ってる事がありました。それはマンボです。 マンボといえばキング オブ マンボ、ペレス プラードです。 マンボの代表曲、マンボNo.5の人です。指揮者なのにステージを動き回って踊るのが …
For a while, every time I heard a word, I had something to think about. It’s a mambo.
Speaking of Mambo, it is King of Mambo, Perez Prado.
Mambo’s representative song, Mambo No.5. Even though he is a conductor, he enjoys moving around the stage and dancing. Besides No.5, there is also No.8. There doesn’t seem to be any songs with other numbers.
I don’t know what the story is about, but there is a faster version here. I’m not very busy. Please listen to both and compare them ♪

ゴールデンウィークも中盤。初夏っぽさを感じ始めるこの頃は『立夏・りっか』と言って夏の兆しが見え始める時期で立夏は毎年5/4〜5/6頃、今年は5/5にやって来るのだそうです。 まだまだ知らない事がいっぱいのドリューです。 …
Golden Week is also in the middle. Around this time when you start to feel the feeling of early summer, it is the time when you start to see signs of summer by saying Japanese “Rikka”, and it seems that Lixia comes around 5/4 to 5/6 every year, and this year it comes on 5/5. ..
Drew has a lot of things I don’t know yet.
Today’s song is Otis Redding’ｓ masterpiece “(Sittin’On) The Dock of the Bay” covered by Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66.
The song is a melancholy song in which the main character sits in a cove and looks at the sea, but this cover song starts with a moody intro and makes you want to sway your body from side to side with your fingers.
Please listen while swinging with your favorite drink ♪

こんな時ですが明るい気持ちでいたい！ 基本的に哀愁とか切ないとか、まったりした曲が好きなドリューは考えました。ここで暗くなってはいけない、と。でも元気過ぎるよりはちょっと控えめに…そんな時この曲を思い出しました。 ブラジ …
At times like this, I want to feel cheerful!
Drew, who basically likes songs that are melancholy or sad, thought. It shouldn’t be dark here. But it’s better to be a little modest than to be too energetic … At that time, I remembered this song.
Brazilian musician Chico Buarque’s 1966 song is sung by Nara Leão, a bossa nova muse also from Brazil.
It calms me that she isn’t singing so vigorously ~ ♪
A marching band will pass! Let’s go see it! It’s a song called.
I hope that day will come back as soon as possible! ︎

It’s mid-April, and the climate is getting better and brighter. At that time, why don’t you want to listen to cheerful reggae?
This song is from the reggae god Bob Marley’s 1977 album.
The animation will continue from the last time, but it is a fun music video that will inspire you with a peaceful story and gentle songs ♪

サラウェアの今シーズンのテーマは『Seaside Promenade』。 海辺のお散歩で思い出すのは…遠過ぎる昔、幼稚園で海に行きました。みんなと手をつないで海岸をお散歩しているとヒトデが砂浜にいました。初めて見たヒトデ …
Sarahwear’s theme for this season is “Seaside Promenade”.
A walk along the beach reminds me … I went to the sea in kindergarten too long ago. A starfish was on the beach as I was walking along the beach, holding hands with my friends. When the starfish I saw for the first time was happy to pick it up and walk along the beach while holding it in my hand … Something came out from the center of the starfish and I was so surprised that I threw it like a boomeran and returned it to the sea.
It’s a forgetful Drew, but I still vividly remember the event. When I remembered such a seaside event, I somehow wanted to meet the sea creatures.
I’m scared to touch it now, so maybe I should go to the aquarium.

寒さにブルブルした冬が過ぎ芽吹きの春の到来です‼︎ 植物たちがすくすくと色んな準備を始めるみたいに私も何か新しい事を習ってみたいとか作ったことないお料理に挑戦してみよう、とか色んな妄想がふくらみます。 妄想は自由です。 …
The cold winter has passed and the budding spring has arrived! ︎
Just as the plants gradually start preparing, I also want to learn something new, try cooking that I have never cooked, and so on.
Delusions are free.
There is a recommended song when you want to relax while delusional.
This is the theme song for the ’69 movie “Metti una sera a cena” by the great Italian film musician Ennio Morricone. It seems that the movie has not been released in Japan, so I don’t know what the story is, but this song was on the CD I had, and I was fascinated by the beautiful melody from the first time I heard it.
Since it is a scat, you can freely delusion and make an original music video in your head ♪ Uhufu.

あーっ！そういえば2月って28日までしかないんだった〜。短い〜。 急ぐのが苦手、のんびり大好きなドリューは休日に家で何時間でも座っていられます。色々やることあってもなかなか椅子から離れられません。 そういう時は忙しそうな …
Ah! By the way, February was only until the 28th. It’s so short…
Drew, who is not good at rushing and loves to relax, can sit at home for hours on holidays. Even if I do various things, I can’t get away from the chair.
At that time, switch on with a song that seems to be busy!
“SOUL BOSSA NOVA”, which I have heard in movies and commercials, is from Quincy Jones’ ’62 album “BIG BAND BOSSA NOVA”, a legend in the music world who handles songs of various genres. About 30 years ago, I bought a jacket without knowing it was a masterpiece.
