Budokan/ Happy 20th! [04 Jun 2009|11:01pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

Just wanted to bring this to your attention, in case you were not aware, the pillows will be having a live at Budokan (the arena in Tokyo where many famous bands perform, including western bands)

Probably this is only useful information to people who will be in Japan at that time, but still, it's a fairly nice venue for the band to have - although Yamanaka did not seem to feel like it was that big of a deal (according to a friend's interpretation of a Nagoya newspaper article).

Here's the official 411

(I actually want to go, since I begin my study abroad at that time, but there appear to be no online-ordering places... one suggestion I read was to get a local traveling agency to get one for me... maaaybe.)

Also, their 20th Anniversary CD was released on the 3rd.

Title of song? [13 Feb 2009|05:03am]

I have a problem: I have a Pillows mix from long ago, and there's ONE song on it whose name I just can't find. If anyone could help me find the title, I'd love you forever and/or share whatever Pillows music I have with you.

Here's the track:

Again, I'll be SO happy if anyone can help! Let me know if you think you can help but megaupload doesn't suit you.

Lyrics to Sunday? [03 Sep 2008|11:19am]

I was wondering if anyone here knew or knew where I could find the lyrics to the song Sunday off of Living Fields. It's my favorite song that they've done and I want to cover it.

Past in Lyrics. [26 Jun 2008|06:27pm]

[ mood | curious ]

I've looked at some of the translations of Pillows lyrics and I've noticed that 'Another Morning' is a really good story. It makes me wonder if it's based on Sawao's past. Anybody know? O.o
Here's the translation from Pirouzu:

Another MorningCollapse )

Decline? [22 Jun 2008|06:34pm]

[ mood | indescribable ]

To me it seems like the quality, listenability, or whatever you would call it, of the Pillows songs has declined.
Even though I feel this way I still think that the more modern Pillows songs are better than what 97% of what other bands are delivering.
I've compared the Pillows to the Pixies on this, that while everyone knew that the Pixies album Trompe le Monde was good, everyone knew that it wasn't as good as Doolittle and Surfer Rosa. That is how I feel about the Pillows. And it is all a matter of personal opinion here.
The Pillows have put out an album every year((ish)) for the past three or four years? I find that unnecessary, like their pushing themselves, or something, who knows maybe the Record label is behind it. :/
Its just that when I listen to Hybrid Rainbow or One Life and then listen to New Animal or Scarecrow, I just don't feel the same passion in the newer songs as I do in the Older ones.
Believe me, I love The Pillows to death, they are one of the best bands in the world these days, I just don't want to find myself not wanting to listen to them in the future.

The Predators. [25 Mar 2008|05:55pm]

[ mood | bored ]

Does anybody know where I can download the Predators album "Hunting!!!"?
I haven't been able to find the album reasonably priced anywhere, so I thought I'd hold myself over with the mp3s. ;]

US tour? Anyone? [15 Mar 2008|01:15am]

So who here is going to a Pillows show in the US?

Anyone already been to the Mar. 13 show?

Anyone going to the NYC show (with me!) next week?

Oh, while I'm posting, I might as well ask this - does anyone know what album this song is from? I downloaded it years ago labeled "The Pillows - Flame", but I can't find a song named "Flame" under any of the albums in the Wikipedia discography. I'm wondering if it was mislabeled or if I just can't find it. Anyone recognize it?

Now that my slight OCD is satisfied that my songs are correctly labeled (seriously, I feel a lot better), I thought I'd post an actual Pillows song I sent to someone recently: Moon Margaret, off Penalty Life. I wish I had something rare or cool to share, but I just really like this song right now (I think because I can actually understand some of the lyrics.)
