​Songs Introduction

 1.LOST MY HEART

The first glitter song of this album is made during Taeko was an office worker.

At one time it was a ballad song, but rearrenged as a middle tempo song by Mister Gaucho.

Later this is played in this tune ever since. Beginning with strumming refrain of the guitar,and you can feel as if like being in a live music club.

And her vocals overlap with its rhythm sing adult romance also feeling of groove.

 

2.WITHOUT REALIZING IT

The starting point of this song goes back to her childhood.

Taeko had time to make a record jacket in a junior high school art class.

She portrays a girl gazing at her favorite boy from behind a tree, and left a message "I was by your side without noticing".

Taeko was also learning the Electone(an electronic organs produced by YAMAHA),so she left the short melodies and lyrics "without noticing".

She finished as a song based on girls' generation memories, besides made just like a jazzy number by Mister Gaucho's arrangement.

This is a nice song feelings of teenage girls became love of adult women over time.

 

3.ONE PAGE OF MY MEMORIES ~LE NOMBLE~

The theme song of this album, that depicts the precious time and feelings of two in love.

Drawn a page of refreshing memories in very easy to listen to middle tempo arrangement.

 

4.I REMEMBER YOU

I was impressed and surprised when I listen to this,because different from the usual image of her song. The subject is so sad and stinged heart. It means "No matter how much you want, your wish and love won't come true". This song sublimates sadness as beauty.

A great performance just like frozen seasonal feeling with acoustic guitars and soprano saxophones possible to get goose bumps on the vocal as if she is singing in front of me.

 

5.WANNA BE LIKE THE SUN

Seems bright and lightful samba tone song.

Taeko must image that's she want to be a ideal female.

"Keep smiling even if you have worries".

Please don't miss the lyrics as well.

6.BESIDE OF YOU

This is a very romantic and relaxed tempo ballad song.

It should be sung by many singers as a standard.

There is so impressive part in a Cadence(EN:a falling) at ending of this song by tenor saxophone.

7.HOVER

Usually Taeko sings this song in classical style, on this album she sings it in rhythmical beat style using high-hat cymbals

Basically this is in 16 beats song, such as 4 beats in the middle of the song that is one of the great arrangements of hers.

8.PRECIOUS TIME

Changing the atmosphere just a little like soul music arrangement, and sending message :"Forget daily hazy stressful days, so enjoy precious time now".

Good for tenor saxophones the solo part like Rhythm & Blues.

 

9.Fortunate Days

This song makes nostalgic feelings with harmonica and acoustic guitar, the origin of Taeko's resumption of musical activities also, important feelings of course it must be only one.

Taeko gave birth to two children as small extrapremature and had lots of trouble.

But through it she got the important relationship between her and children.

It also gave birth thankfulness and this song.

She always sings this in her live concert.

Then all audiences feel calm and "I'm glad coming to Taeko's live concert".

You don't miss it too.

 

10.NEVERLAND

This is a song inspired by Peter Pan's Neverland.

A mother reads the story to her children listening hardly.

Just like she as a mother messages and the images of the Neverland.

It's a nice song.

This song is composed by Tatsuya Kawamura:Taeko's husband.

He made this with dramatic arrangement. it is good and the best match of the ending this album.
