The music video for Melissa seems kinda depressing to me. Am I the only one that thought that? O.o
Current Mood: blah*blink*
Current Music: Porno Graffiti - Melissa

Look at some of the other Porno Graffitti song lyrics/translations. It's amusing how many of them are actually somewhat depressing.

Depressing or just plain weird. I often wonder if Haruichi wakes up in the morning and says to himself, "Well, I can either write a song about the soul-rending agony of alienation and lost love, today, or I can write one about the first random object that catches my attention. Let's see...I already wrote about the cactus. Twice. ...and the guava juice...and the rabbit. Oh, what the hell. Lost love it is! Tama, whip me up some cheery-sounding music, and we'll have another hit that has people right where we want them -- sobbing on the dance floor!"

I haven't seen the video... but I would think that the depressing lyrics for Melissa would sort of hint at a depressing video.

But the music sounds so cheery. x_X;

Yeah there's a lot of jpop songs like that. Like... a rediculous amount. LOL I can't think of any off the top of my head - but I know they're there.

yeah, no matter how cheery porno graffitti songs are, they aren't usually meant to be optimistic, happy songs. good lyrics tho.

Hey, know I have an idea why it's called "Melissa". I just thought that they thought it sounded cool. Like Porno Graffiti.

Melissa is actually a type of plant. He sings it one of the lines. "I want to return to the leaves of melissa at least." Or something like that.

I thought Melissa was the girl dancing around. O_o;

Don't'cha notice how she becomes a flower at the end (Or is a flower at first? It's been months since I saw the PV)?
