* Azalynn tried to start an all-hands rendition of "Hooked On a Feeling" by Blue Swede here instead, but was countermanded by everyone else on the stage except Ritchan, who was up for it; Mugi and Moose, who are up for anything; and Yui, who had never heard that song and so had no idea what she was doing with that "ooga chaka" business.

† It's called this even though it isn't in English, I guess because in the movie, they perform (in Japanese) in England.

   Most of these tracks I feel no problems about leaving you to track down of your own devices (since I included the names of the albums and all), but "Jam for World in Action" is obscure enough that, well, here.

This version is one of Kate's standard "let's see what this keyboard's got, shall we?" exercises in music stores.

2. "song of the day, 2014.09.04"
In response to message #0
 
   In the wake of the above show and the response it got (both from the listening public and the other band involved), Yui wrote this song. Upon first reading the lyrics, Ritsu summarized them as, "Cocky, cocky, cocky, cocky, cocky," punctuating each word with a vigorous shake of her bandmate, whom she had by the lapels. But they recorded it anyway. :)

(English lyrics from the K-On! wiki. No warranty is expressed or implied, etc.)



I tie my tie tight and now depart
While my heart is tied tight, too
A stage that's shown only to us
Let's go gathering our power
However many times I depart, it feels like the first time
Deciding one song is exciting and tense
But when we exchange looks, that easily
Changes mystery into happiness

We bask in the spotlight, light from around the world
We're just about gathered, always radiating

Because we're not incomplete, our motto is fun
Because we're serious
That riff just now was cool, it felt pro
Oh no, I'm already in high spirits
Could it be that we're geniuses?
Nobody says so, but we must be

There aren't any flashy accessories
Our sparkling sweat substitutes for jewels
We don't have makeup either, just unpainted faces
But to that extent, we're honest

Our smiles in full bloom, people around the world
If we can make them smile, it's amazing, touching

Because we want to sing, the atmosphere is love and peace
Because our dreams are huge
This harmony is perfect, knack instead of pitch
Oh no, I'm already nervous
We don't sit down, our feet on the ground
Making good use of the fluffiness, soaring, happy

We encountered it, we found it
The supreme bliss of playing, a sense of unity
Before knowing it, we won't go back to being lucky

So we're going to go forward, tea time is our energy
Because we love everybody
Extending the loop, an awesome outro, tension doesn't have a ceiling
Then let's go, let's go more
Come on, because we're not incomplete, our motto is fun
Because we're serious
That riff just now was cool, it felt pro
Oh no, I'm already in high spirits
Could it be that we're geniuses?
Nobody says so, but it's true

- Hōkago Tea Time
"Genius... !?"
Go! Go! Maniac! (2010)

Speaking of Bo Diddley riffs...



I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire
I have a cobra snake for a necktie
I have a brand new house upon the roadside
And it's made out of rattlesnake hide
I have a brand new chimney, baby, built on top
And it's made out of human skulls
Come on, take a little walk with me, baby
And tell me: Whom do you love?
Whom do you love?

Now, around the town, I use a rattlesnake whip
Take it easy, baby, don't give me any lip
Whom do you love?
Whom do you love?

I have a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind
I'm just twenty-two and I don't mind dying
Whom do you love?
Yeah, whom do you love?
Aw, whom do you love?

Now, Juri took me by my hand
She said, "Lonesome Kate, you don't understand"
Whom do you love?
The night was dark and the sky was blue
Down the alley a house wagon flew
It hit a bump and somebody screamed
You should've heard just what I've seen
Whom do you love?
Whom do you love?
Yeah, whom do you love?
Aw, whom do you love?

Yeah, I have a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind
I'm just twenty-two, honey, I don't mind dying
Snake-skin shoes, baby, put them on your feet
We've got the good-time music with the Bo Diddley beat
Yeah, whom do you love?
Woo! Whom do you love?

I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire
I have a cobra snake for a necktie
I have brand new house upon the roadside
And it's made out of rattlesnake hide
I have a brand new chimney, mama, built on top
And it's made out of human skulls
Come on, take a little walk with me, child
Tell me: Whom do you love?
Yeah, whom do you love?
Ooh, whom do you love?

   Agreed. The only thing higher on the wish-I-could-see-this scale would be a credit for "backing vocals".

After all, I'm sure he's smart enough to roar on cue... :)

On the Art's second live album, The Adventures of the Art of Noise Across the Eighth Dimension, he has a credit as "assistant guitarist", having operated Azalynn's wah pedal during an off-the-cuff cover of "Theme from Shaft".

>4. "Roll With the Changes"
>REO Speedwagon
>You Can Tune a Piano, But You Can't Tuna Fish (1978)

NOTES: Listed as one of the "collaborative jam" tracks, but it's probably more accurate to say that it was performed by an "augmented" HTT (because it has two keyboard parts and, what the hell, we might as well add another guitarist). The four-part guitar solo is all one performance in the original, but it's clearly broken into four parts (they even overlap in ways that are frankly improbable for a single live guitarist, but then, the official YouTube version is a weird hybrid of a live performance and the studio recording anyway).

Personnel:
Kaitlyn Hutchins - Lead vocal, piano
Yui Hirasawa - Guitar 1, backing vocal
Azusa Nakano - Guitar 2
Azalynn dv'Ir Natashkan - Guitar 3
Tsumugi Kotobuki - Electric organ
Mio Akiyama - Bass, backing vocal
Ritsu Tainaka - Drums

Heh. All the "revised" versions of songs from before Azusa joined the band, and which subsequently had her rhythm guitar part added to them, are labeled that way on the K-On! soundtracks. I don't think it actually has anything to do with ninja, but I suppose one never knows. :)

--G.
I think Nodoka might be one. She's always appearing at oddly opportune moments...

Upon reminding myself of actual Japanese grammer, I find it's pretty innocent.

It's actually a standard Japanese expression. Japanese uses several different suffixes to add to numbers when counting numbers of things, to indicate what's being counted. 人 ('nin') is the counter-suffix for 'people'.

So in 'normal' Japanese it would be written 五人, 'go-nin', '5-people'.

But, well, UF, so ninja!

Someone involved with the song production for K-On! likes playing with numbers; there are several songs with Arabic numerals in the titles, and one of the recurring "insert" songs HTT plays on screen several times over the course of the series, "Gohan wa Okazu", contains an untranslatable pun based on the number 5. The chorus involves repeated chanting of the line, "Ichi, ni, san, shi, go-ha-n," which is basically "one, two, three, four, five-and-also-the-first-syllable-of-rice". :)

Yeah, anime people do seem to be inveterate punsters. Consider the title of "My-HiME", which is a four-way cross-language pun all by itself.

"I thought this was going to be a cute schoolyard romance with lots of moe(j, 'cuteness')!"

"Well, a lot of things did moeru...(j, 'to burn')"

Actually, Mai-HiME and Mai-Otome both have the same kind of mood-whiplash thing going on that Arpeggio does - both of them do sixteen episodes of charming comedy, take a hard swerve into Deep Serious in episode 17 (although Otome preserves more comic relief moments), and the roll through that territory for a while before blasting their way to a triumphant heroes-victorious conclusion.
