I’ve been saving this one for Christmas time because I like the winter theme of the video. This is another JPop song by Perfume called “nee”:
Sadly, this is only the short version. The long version is available Youtube, but I try to only post the official videos by JPop and KPop groups, so this is all I had available. Anyhow, this is one of my favorite songs by Perfume and the video really shows how artistic and talented they are. I love the “three-camera angle” shots among other things.
The song’s title is “ne”, which is a particle used constantly in Japanese. Tae Kim’s site does a great explanation of what it means. Usually it goes at the end of a sentence, but it can also be used at the beginning of the sentence as done here. Here, “ne” is more like “hey” as in getting someone’s attention. The full sentence in the chorus is ne, doko ni ikou kana? (ね、どこに行こうかな？) which means “hey, I wonder where [we] should go…?”
Normally I try not to spend this much explaining the meaning, but it’s central to the song.
Anyhow, hope you enjoy and I hope this song puts you in a good Winter mood. 🙂
