BREAKERZ - Joker ♪  


The song I have chosen to write about, is JOKER.
I chose this song, because it is one of the first BREAKERZ songs I heard, and also because, this is a song, I can enjoy listening to, I can listen to this song constantly without becoming sick of hearing it.

What I like about this song is that unlike some of their latter works, JOKER has a rockier sound to it.
I also like that DAIGO incorporated an essence of meaning and simplistic ideals into his lyrics by drawing on books.

"Not all can be seen with the naked eye
The Little Prince says so"

I think this shows the innocence of the speaker, how they say "The Little Prince says so" , This is has a child like innocence to it, As though the speaker is saying 'it must be true because I read it'.

We are told as children that this is how it should be, we are brought up with these ideals, through stories, so it must be true, right? but in reality things are not as simple.

Also in regards to the lyrical content of this song, I think that many people can relate.
If you've been betrayed by someone you love, whether this is has been by; a friend, lover, family member, etc.

I think we can all understand the pain of not wanting to believe everything, because it hurts too much and so we would want to disgard this aspect of the person, but in the end aren't we hurt too much that we can't forget it? we want to hate the person for making us feel this way, however, we don't want to lose any love and trust our relationship has.
This line conveys to you what I mean by this;

"Please, don’t let me know the hidden truth in those eyes
Don’t say anything anymore
Keep it ’til your bones burn and crumble"

I feel that here the speaker is trying to say, that no matter how much I want to know the truth, don't tell me, because I don't want to be hurt anymore by it, so keep it to yourself, don't let me see this part of you, don't destroy the image I have of you.

Something I really enjoy about this song is that;
It is one of BREAKERZ more rockier sounding tracks.I think this is something which helps them to secure themselves in the rock genre, as well as allowing themselves to experiment and venture out into other musical genres, but for me, I usually prefer their songs that are more rock.

BREAKERZ is releasing a DVD of “Wish 02″ in Budokan this February 9! Check out the snippet below:</p>

DAIGO places too much weight on marketability sometimes. :/

Yeah it is evident that he does this.

Yes, and it's all thanks to Yasu! :D

Yasu is great
I think he is amazing for doing this XD

Completely agrees with this, Yasu is really great <3 Yasu 兄様 *_*)~♥ he really knows how to pick not just good but funny and interesting musicians. ABC doesn't have a single weak link to me, even if the members are sometimes switching, it never becomes weak or boring...

They're all proving themselves as good musicians, as well as being able to be entertaining to watch when they perform, I think all of this equates to them being so great to not only watch; but also to listen to.

I am so happy you finally completed it and I add I always enjoy to read your toughts on such things! You have such a way to present them in a new way and very smartly I have to say... I totally love this song, even admitting that I am totally biased towards the first album as it is one of my favaourite one. I like Breakerz rockier sound a lot as much as I also love their acoustic and mellow songs. I also like to see that side of Daigo, more angsty, more serious and a bit more intellectual. I love the lyrics content of most of the songs and, yes even Kamisori =P I remember when I first read them (to practice my kanji) the Little Prince quote made me go *O* I knew Daigo was not just an idiot, as he like to make us believe! To me, he seems in fact quite cultivated and has a lot of all around the world general knowledge. I really like to see him without his talento mask... It enables us to see glimpses of the real Daigo.

Thank you for liking the way I (sometimes) write, that makes me happy to read, yet a litle suspicious; as to me I just wrote whatever I could be bothered to at the time. 8D

I understand what you mean so much, I think DAIGO is really under-rated due to always acting the fool as a talento, but I think when you actually care to take a look at his lyrics, he really isn't completetly stupid.

He should show us his intellectual side more often.

I'm glad I did listen to the first album again, It is one that I really enjoy, its a shame so many BRZ fans seem to dislike that one the most.
