On March 27, there was music live of my father’s band, Hotline at ski place in my hometown. The live name is “Twilight Concert 2”. The live at ski place was second time for Hotline. I supported the band as a chorus at the live. (I don’t remember when I started to join lives as a chorus, but I keep doing it still).
Most songs which were played at the live were original which my father composed by himself. Hotline played the songs with lyrics and instrumental.
Hotline has a popular number, “Itsumo Saka wo Nobotteitai (Always want to go up the slope) which is absolutely played every live. This song is very positive and gives people courage. It might be good to listen to this song when you want to decide something. (You can hear it from my father’s blog→http://spaces.msn.com/chihirodream-egg/)
After Hotline performance, audiences requested one more song. Therefore, we played the popular song again.
All audiences stood up and sang the song together. They looked so happy, and so did Hotline members.
In my case, I was about to cry when I saw the people were singing along with Hotline. I felt the power of song at the moment. Also, I thought live is much much better than listening to CD. My father and I are said that the CD which is produced by my father is really nice, but we are not sure how much the ones think so. On the other hand, we can know audiences reactions directly through lives. If an audience thinks a song is nonsense, s/he would leave the place, and if an audience feels comfortable, s/he would sings the song together.
Today was not about Japan but about the impressive live, sorry. I wanted to tell you what I felt at the live.
