More about remastered releases + Lyrics update

Warner Music Japan has officially announced the campaign on the 5 remastered releases from Yoeko, as well as the actual seal that will be sticked in the CDs, as you can see in the left. The promotion will be available from the release date until 2011.06.30 (the postage date will be checked) and all you have to do is to gather 5 seals, no mather if you bought 2 "omoutsubo" and 3 "fujin'you", it's still 5, since the seal design is the same for all the 5 releases. The envelope has to contain: 1. the 5 seals, 2. your postal code, 3. address, 4. your name and 5. your telephone number in a sheet inside. More information can be checked here. The pins will be sent approx. 2 or 3 weeks after your letter has arrived in their office. I live in Brazil and wanted to make sure if I wouldn't lose the seals (yes, I keep everything that comes in a japanese CD, even the protection plastic and its seals) sending them to Japan and getting nothing in return, so I sent them an email and got this reply:


That basically says they unfortunately WON'T ship it to me because I live in Brazil. And that I could ask a friend of mine in Japan to do so. I should reply back asking him to be friends with me because I have no friends in Japan at all. GRRR.

Also, I've made romaji for these 3 songs:

I'd like to thank Mr. arruu2000 for providing me lyrics to the demo "higurashi ni tsuite", which is indeed very rare!

Re-releases application gifts and score book

I've reported one month ago about Yoeko's early releases being re-released and remastered as you can see here. A few days ago Warner Music Japan oficially announced the releases as well as a new Yoeko self-portrait and an extra gift. Each of the 5 releases will have a sticker on the cover saying「リマスタリング音源です〜」 (It's remastered!), all the people who gather all the 5 stickers and send to the given address will receive an "original 5-set pin" of each release, as you can see below:

It does say everyone who send the stickers will get the present, but I'm not sure if they'd send them outside Japan, I hope so...

Also, according to Mr. Konohamoero, the scorebook "Piano Hikigatari Best" will be also re-released, as you can check here. It seems that the book publisher is a big fan of Yoeko Kurahashi and made some efforts for it to be reissued.

Random lyrics update!

Hey! This week I did a lot of romaji of songs out of the original albums, so now there's almost 100% of the lyrics up. I've found out too that the song "蛙の歌" (frog's song) from 'shuugakushou' album and 'yoidore shijin ni naru mae ni' album is actually 'kawazu no uta' and not 'kaeru no uta' as I thought before, the kanji for frog has at least 3 ways of pronunciation! So here are the new updated lyrics:

That also makes 'shuugakushou' album complete, too!

discography + romaji

Happy new year everyone!! Thanks everybody for the visit, and specially the people from Japan, who are the top visitor of this website, even though it's in english, a huge thanks to you all, 日本の皆様へ「明けまして御目出度ふ 本当に有り難う御座います」. I wish I could translate this website to japanese, someday! So let's begin with the updates. Added romaji lyrics for both, IROIRO album and SON TO USO single. So now, all the original albums have been romanized!

I've made also a big update on the page "discography > others", which details Yoeko's works outside her discography, please take a look there!
