Song Story ds106
Back in 2002.
I was in 4th grade.
It is 2011.
I am 19.
My greatest and darkest history.
Back then, my friends and I were really into this girls group.
called モーニング娘。 (morning musume, morning girls)
((Thinking about it now,
they were like AKB.
But a little bit different.))
I really liked them.
I don't know why.
But we were little kids.
We envied these shiny girls.
Back then, we were always talking about them.
My mother knew how much I liked them.
One day, she brings me this letter
that says that I passed the paper screening of the audition
for kids group (called Hello Project) of MorningMusume.
One of my friends who sent her paper also passed.
On the letter, it said that
there is going to be singing and dancing test.
And to wear something that is easy to move.
I knew what I wanted to sing.
It was one of the newest songs they released
and I liked it very much.
However, I didn't know what to wear.
My mother told me to wear something good-looking and cute.
it said "wear something that is easy to move".
good-looking (formal) + cute (skirt) = school uniform
My mother rejected my idea.
So, I decided to wear "something easy to move"
my basketball uniform.
My mother rejected again.
But I was like "No no no!"
since I heard from my grandmother that audition = battle.
And there I was.
Among all other girls who are wearing
stage costumes of MorningMusume shrunken to their size,
really frilly skirts,
cool looking pants, ...
I was there,
with my basketball uniform that says
"Jaguars 7" on front and "Kino 7" on the back.
My friends were like ".....haha"
This was the song I sang for the singing test.
I think this is a great song.
I think this song cheers you up.
However, when I listen to this song.
I remember the loneliness at the really crowded place.
I remember the cold smile on my friend's face.
But I do not regret!
It was such a great experience.
I will never forget that day.
