This journal is dedicated to Japanese musician Hirasawa Susumu (平沢進) and his various music projects, including P-Model. As there are not that many English translations of Mr. Hirasawa's fascinating lyrics, I am posting my own attempts at translating them here. You will also find some summaries/translations of other Hirasawa-related materials.

Please read the FAQ if you have any questions. Use the TAGS to find song lyrics and other translations more easily.


ご注意:こちらは一人の外国人ファンが平沢進の歌詞を日本語が読めないファンのために英訳するブログです。公式なものではありません。師匠の素晴らしさをもっと世界に伝えればという思いでやっております。どうかよろしくお願いします。

Re: Hello to MASTER Hirasawa's fan!

You do good work. I've been a music fan for so long and yet Hirasawa is the only artist for whom I keep a seperate playlist (100+ songs!) that I listen to for at least an hour or two each week. I had a rough day at work and when I drove home, the following songs came on - "Niwashi King", "Logic Airforce", "REM Sleep" (recycle version), and "Personal Pulse". When I got home I had completely forgotten everything. It's cathartic music. But I only discovered the guy by chance. About 3 years ago, I went to a Polysics show and decided to go meet them afterwards. They are very good to their fans. I remarked to Hiro that I really liked the house music that (obviously) he picked - it had YMO, Kraftwerk, a-ha, Depeche Mode, etc. etc. But there was one song I didn't recognize and I asked him what it was, he took a piece of paper, wrote down "P-MODEL" and gave it to me. That changed my life forever! (well, sort of) The song was "Art Mania" by the way.
