Koda Kumi’s To Sing Aria Cover

Posted by diopatra on June 26, 2009

Koda Kumi will be providing the theme song for the upcoming film “Kamui Gaiden”, which stars actor Matsuyama Kenichi. The song is called “Alive”, and it is a cover of the classical song “Lascia ch’io pianga” (Let me weep) by George Frideric Handel, originally an aria in his opera “Rinaldo”.

To prepare for the recording session, Koda stopped speaking entirely for three days prior to entering the studio. “This will be my first time covering a classical piece,” said Koda. “It’s a challenge for the new me. The lyrics are in Japanese, and I found it really difficult to accurately express Kamui (the film’s main character)’s solitude and sadness. I wrote them as I watched the film, and if the song can help those who feel lonely or distressed to believe in the light, then I’ll be really happy with it.”

Cover “Performance” Disaster

Posted by diopatra on April 27, 2009

an ordinary fan performing an artist song, it would be forgivable if they messed up.

but when another artist messing up another artist song, that a different story.

in making covers, its either you make you own version to have better version than the original or completely copy the original artist.

if you remember there was a new boyband did a cover of DBSK’s Rising Sun if i am not mistaken its a vietnamese boyband. those amateur dancers in the street could do even better than what they did.

another one some did a cover of Wondergirl’s Nobody and if im not mistaken she even record the song as her own, without JYP permission. i wonder what happened to the legal issue JYP raised against the artist.

now another one.  a group, MAY TRANG  performed SNSD’s Gee. they look like a legite group, since they have few videos over the YT. they totally ruined it.
