Sunday J-POP (Japanese Pop) – Magic Ways by Tasuro Yamashita

Another Sunday J-pop time! How have you been?  It has been enjoyable week for me, driving down to the seaside as we had the last Indian Summer, watching friend’s performance etc.

Today’s Sunday J-pop is called 「Magic Ways」. When I went to the seaside in Kent and looking at the sea, It was a magic way to have made me feel happy. 「Magic Ways」 is one of trucks from the album called [Big Wav」. I am sure after listening to this song, you are CERTAINLY feeling happier. The sea I visited has not got as big wave as Hawaii or Japan but it still made me happy.

Whistable Sea


MAGIC WAYS
Tatsuro Yamashita

Magic Ways – 山下達郎
The way you whisper in my ear
To make my troubles disappear
It’s magic
The way your little fingertips
Can make my heart do double flips
It’s magic
And when you smile at me that way
Well you can warm the coldest day
It’s magic
And even when you’re gone I find
I hear you laughing in my mind
It’s magic
And all I have to do is think of you
To make the music start to play
Then I dance down the street
And the people I meet stop and say hey hey
Magic ways My friend
You love the girl with magic ways and it’s true
I might as well give in
You cast a spell on all my nights and days
With your sweet magic ways
When I go to sleep it seems
You sprinkle stardust in my dreams
It’s magic
And in the morning when I rise
The mockingbirds all harmonize
It’s magic
And when you want me you just clap your hands
And I’ll be with you right away
Then we’ll float on a breeze
While the leaves in the trees softly say hey hey
Magic ways My friend
You love the girl with magic ways and it’s true
I might as well give in
You cast a spell on all my nights and days
With your sweet magic ways
Magic ways My friend
You love the girl with magic ways and it’s true
I might as well give in
I love the girl with magic ways
Magic ways My friend
You love the girl with magic ways and it’s true
I might as well give in
You cast a spell on all my nights and days
With your sweet magic ways My friend
You love the girl with magic ways and it’s true
I might as well give in
I love the girl with magic ways
Magic ways My friend
You love the girl with magic ways and it’s true
I might as well give in

  1. I was curious. Would you consider AKB48 type groups to be J-Pop or another genre?

    • I think their type is also J-Pop,. Arashi, a boy group, who I love is also J-Pop, Tatsuyo Yamashita wrote a song for them. But they are rather idol groups and too much commercialism. They don’t write songs. But their song is categorized as a J-Pop. Do you like AKB48? Idol songs used to be call “kayokyoku” in Showa era! Nowadays we call J-Pop.
