I am very new to the forum and don’t often interact so forgive me if the format of this is very weird or it is in the wrong place
As I have really started to get stuck into learning Japanese grammar I want to start reading books but you know it can be hard to find a club thats just started and you got to catch up etc. and its just a bit of a faff at times.
So I have the idea of setting up a music club where we take a popular Japanese song and go through it as if it was a book, checking each others translations and understanding the grammar behind it.
This could be very convenient to a lot of people as we could go through a song a day, so anyone could join in at any time.
My question to everyone reading this is who would like to help me set up this club? As I am fairly inexperienced with the forum and my knowledge of the Japanese language is pretty rubbish, I’d very much appreciate any help whatsoever
**Edit: If you would like to join in add me on twitter @CamJRalph and just drop me a DM
Sounds like a great idea, I often wish I understood songs better and breaking down lyrics would be a bit like the poetry club, but for music. I can see people being interested ^-^
Also, since it’s your first post…
(also my first time saying anything on forums!) personally I love the idea of that! I often do it on my own bc it’s hard to find translations of songs I listen to (not so popular abroad ig?) so it’d be great to have that sort of thing here
Then a welcome to you too! (though I won’t post that again, seems a bit redundant, hehe)
I think this should notify those involved with this thread but add me on twitter @CamJRalph and we can start coming up with some ideas tomorrow
I’d be interested in something like this. I’ve already been picking at some song lyrics, and it can definitely be tricky. It’d be good to have some other minds to bounce off of.
Oooh I’d love to join this, I like translating lyrics by Galileo Galilei. Arukara also has some really funky interesting songs with really fun lyrics. One of them is about a clown who’s sad and runs away from the circus, but he gets told his tears don’t mean anything, but eventually gets some validation and support and is told that his emotions aren’t all just an act, his feelings matter too.
Something in Ainu language
Stellar taste you have there!
