Kyary’s tweets about “Pamyu Pamyu Revolution”
[9:31 PM] I’d like to go on and explain my album, Pamyu Pamyu Revolution
[9:34 PM] “Minna no Uta” is a song to get everyone riled up at my live performances in a fun way! It’s got a drift-like intro. Clap clap cl-cl-cl-clap! See? Isn’t it easy? It think it would be so nice to be able to make everyone smile with the power of music without having to think about anything! It seems like it’s gonna be playing on NHK’s Minna no Uta, so we titled it Minna no Uta. NHK, best regards lol
[8:38 PM] As for “drinker”, the song was made for me since I’m still 19 years old and a minor. I don’t know the world of alcohol, but it’s a grown-up kind of song about people who think feelings like these are wonderful. The key point is the profound lyrics, “But I still can’t drink it, however”! When I’m 20, maybe this’ll be my ‘here’s to heavy drinking’ song!
[9:42 PM] “Onedari 44°” came from a true story. When I was eating with Mr. ystk once, it turned into something like a joke competition. I told him the story about how once when I was in elementary school and didn’t want to go to school, I warmed up the thermometer on the stove and it got up to 44° (LOL), and we made this song at our next recording. It’s the Krushers CM song
[9:47 PM] “Girigiri Safe” is set in Harajuku, so it’s a song that’s got a lot of Harajuku-ness packed into it, from Takeshita Street to crepes and stuff! The chords when I repeat “Just in time! Just in time!” are used a lot, so it’s got some Japanese-ness to it too
[9:51 PM] “Oyasumi” is the closing song for Pamyu Pamyu Land. The triple time makes you feel like you want to sleep. Singing it was super hard… I’m gonna practice ahead of time for my one-mans! If you don’t want to go home and still want to play… you don’t say!
[9:54 PM] Lastly, “Chan Chaka Chan Chan” is a song that’s really “See you next week” like Mr. Nakata says (lol) It’s a really chipper song, [with lyrics like] “It’s not a goodbye, it’s see you later”! The spacey intro is super bright! It’s the only song with my Yoshi Ikuzou-style rap in it, and a Japanese-style medley even shows up! It has a really strong “ending” feel to it!
