YUI – LIFE (Music Fair Performance)

YUI performed LIFE, the upcoming new Bleach ending theme, on the Music Fair program on Sept. 17th. I’ve listened to the song several dozen times now, and I still have mixed feelings about it. So far, I really only enjoy the opening guitar part, and not so much the song itself. We’ll see if I change my mind once the new Bleach ED sequence airs. If you want to listen to just the audio rip of the performance, visit our friends at the Bleach Forums.

    It sounds a bit… shaky, but I guess that’s because it’s a live version; and the quality of the file isn’t that great either XD.
    I’m looking forward to this ending – the guitar part is really amazing!! I wasn’t really a “happy people” fan, so… (it was nice but I like this one better -> the more I listen to it the more I like it)
    The studio-version will be better, so I’m really looking forward to it ;)

    greetings. estella

    I’ve herd it to but honestly I think this is worse then happy people…

  • September 28, 2005 at 4:02 pmener

    How could anything be worse than Happy People?

    It sounds pretty good as a studio version, but I’m also sorta biased because I love YUI’s music.

    I like the song! but I wonder if it will fit Bleach…

  • September 28, 2005 at 8:33 pmThe Dude

    Happy People wasn’t that bad! ^_^’ But I’m looking forward to YUI’s LIFE being the ED – it’ll be a nice change!

  • October 22, 2005 at 6:21 amRyo

    anyone have the tablature of this song please ? :D

  • October 22, 2005 at 10:04 pmJC

    GREAT SONG PERIOD!!!! Has a very Michelle Branch quality sound to it. A nice break from the normal JPOP sounds. It competes well with Hoshi Boshi in my mind.

  • October 30, 2005 at 4:04 ammarc

    Does anyone have the translation to this song? I need it now!!!!!!!!!!!

  • December 8, 2005 at 9:17 pmSleepingkirby

    Hi, just heard this song as a random thing someone gave me. Sounded familiar, tried to pin where I heard it before and found my way here. To be honest, I didn’t think much of it either when I first heard it, but the more I hear it, the more it grew on me. I’m not that old, but it kind of reminds me of Joni Mitchell. It’s hard to say if it fits bleach or not, but if they can find a way for Houki boshi (a song about a person that wants to be a comet to be closer to someone) fit an anime about death gods, anything can fit, I think.

  • December 15, 2005 at 6:33 pmTeagan

    i’ve heard the song life and i really think its really good. Even if i dont know what Yui is saying cause i speak English, but i think the song is heaps cool! i really hope in the future i can get more songs from Yui cause i really like them!!!!

    GO YUI-LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • January 23, 2006 at 11:12 amkc

    Are the rest of the chords done yet?? I really want to complete the song! :) thx alot before Ryo!

  • January 25, 2006 at 4:14 amKami5909

    Do you guys not know chord notation in tab?

    Here’s the chords in letter notations for all of you who can’t read the number notation:

    C#sus2, F#m over the opening notes, which are based on an F#minor pentatonic scale (slide on the D and G strings from the 4th fret to the 6th then drop the G string to the 4th fret while picking, then do a 2nd-4th fret slide on the D string followed by a 4th fret D string three times)

    The rest of the song is a combination of Emajor, F#minor, Bbminor, Bsus2, D#minor and C#minor. I don’t care if you can play it or not so I’m not gonna spend time giving you the exact chord progression (and it’s REALLY easy to figure out because it’s ALL barre chords and simple shapes – I literally heard this once and sat down and played the opening picking through the chorus off of memory); if you can’t figure out Ryo’s notation, which is standard TAB chords (play them and see how it sounds if you’re a retard), then this song is already too advanced for you.
