The Wild Ones ワイルドワンズ

The Wild Ones - 101

Made in Japan: There was Eleki and then there was Group Sounds (GS), a genre of Japanese rock music inspired by The Beatles and a fusion of Japanese kayōkyoku music and rock music. The Wild Ones led by Kase Kunihiko was one of the top GS bands. Among some very memorable hits by the band was a major hit in Japan in 1966: 思い出の渚 Omoide No Nagasi (“The beach of memories”). The Shadows would later recorded it as an instrumental hit.

The Shadows - Omoide No Nagisa
The Shadows in Japan!

君を見つけた この渚に
ひとりたたずみ 想い出す
小麦色した 可愛いい頬(ホホ)
忘れはしない いつまでも
水面(ミナモ)はしる 白い船
長い黒髪 風になびかせ
波に向かって 叫んでみても
もう帰らない あの夏の日

長いまつげの 大きな瞳が
僕を見つめて うるんでた
このまま二人で 空の果てまで
飛んでゆきたい 夜だった
波に向かって 叫んでみても
もう帰らない あの夏の日
