I’ve put up a translation for the last of the new songs, “Going Crazy (抓狂),” on this page. I’m not wild about that English title – it doesn’t seem strong enough – but I’ve tried a few other phrases in the song and didn’t like them. So, I’m just posting it and reserving the right to change my mind about it later.
The song starts out with the line, “I want to fly, but you’re like a high wall that has entombed my dreams,” which is a smack-in-the-face reminder of just how good Ashin can be with imagery. It gets better from there. The music, by Monster, was also a big hit with me – I’m quite happy with this song.
If you haven’t heard it yet, you can here (use Internet Explorer).
At some point in the none-too-distant future, I’ll put up the whole tracklisting for the Jump! The World album with links to the respective translations… probably by the weekend. I’m not quite sure I understand yet what track 3 is – an instrumental? A cover? (I don’t have the album yet myself.) I’ll have to look into that.
