Lyrics from
Nanigenaku tsukete'ta rajio kara
futo natsukashii merodi
Hontō ni hisashiburi na no ni
sarari to utaeru mon da ne

Lyrics from
I happened to turn on the radio
when out came this old melody I used to know.
Even though it was a really long time ago,
I find I can sing along smoothly.

Lyrics from
Surikireru hodo kiita arubamu-tachi
imagoro oshiire no katasumi de yamazumi ni natte'ru

Lyrics from
The albums that I wore out listening to
nowadays are piled up in a nook in the closet.

Lyrics from
Natsukashii omoide to kokochiii oto
Omowazu tobidasu omoidashi-warai
Kaettara mata fū o akete miyō
Kokoro ni kaze ga fuita

Lyrics from
Nostalgic memories and pleasant sounds.
Reminiscing I suddenly burst out laughing.
When I get home I'll get it out of its cover again. (1)
A wind blew in my heart.

Lyrics from
Oshiire no sumi no ōkina hako
hokori de omowazu museru
Sukoshi dake shimetta kabikusasa to
natsukashii kami no nioi

Lyrics from
A big box in the corner of the closet
suddenly makes me choke with dust.
The musty smell that's a touch damp
and paper with a nostalgic scent to it.

Lyrics from
Hi ni yakete iroaseta jaketto minagara
kutabireta ano rajikase no suitchi o ireru

Lyrics from
While looking at the cover, its colour faded by the sun,
I switch on that tired old radio-cassette player. (2)

Lyrics from
Afuredasu omoide to kawaranai oto
Omowazu dete kuru nigai kioku
Ano koro wa mada wakaranakatta uta ga
sukoshi kokoro ni shimita

Lyrics from
Overflowing memories and the sound that doesn't change.
Suddenly a bitter memory comes to me.
A song that I hadn't known yet in those days
touched my heart a bit.

Lyrics from
Natsukashii omoide to kokochiii oto
Yappari dete kuru aitsu no koto
Ano koro no jibun ni modoreta ki ga shite
nando mo kurikaesu ...
Oh yeah

Lyrics from
Nostalgic memories and pleasant sounds.
No surprise, thoughts about that person come to me.
Feeling like I returned to what I was like then,
I'll play it over and over ...
Oh yeah!

Lyrics from
Omoide no barādo

Lyrics from
A ballad to remember.

(1) Probably a sealed plastic dust cover over the LP cover.

(2) You can't play records on cassette players, but maybe the composer is too young to realize.
