Stand Out, Fit In – 英会話 英語 アミック
Today, I was introduced to a great new song and a cool new band!
The song’s name is “Stand Out, Fit In”, and it’s by a band called ONE OK ROCK. Are you familiar with this band? They are a Japanese band, but their songs use both Japanese and English lyrics. The band is very popular internationally and have toured in many different countries. The members of the plans are the singer Takahiro Moriuchi, the guitarist Toru Yamashita, the bassist Ryota Kohama, and the drummer Tomoya Kanki.
Interestingly, Takahiro Moriuchi, who is better known by his stage name ‘Taka’, is the son of two very famous traditional enka singers, Masako and Shinichi Mori!
The song “Stand Out, Fit In” is about how difficult it can be for kids to be themselves and express their individuality and also fit in with the other kids. The music video shows the story of a boy who struggles to balance his heritage and culture with his need to fit in at school and with his friends. Even though the subject of the song can sometimes be sad or difficult, the song itself is upbeat, happy, and definitely catchy!
I’m so grateful to have been introduced to such an interesting band, and I’m looking forward to listening to more of their music!
