J'entends ta voix douce qui appelle mon nom Où est-il? Je me demande L'éclat d'orange m'aveugle et voilà je te trouve à côté Nous sentons le vent tendre qui sent bon Le temps est ralenti Je t'ensorcelle, tu m'en veux pas Tu ne pourrais pas retourner Regarde-moi dans ce tourbillon Ecoute-moi dans ce tourbillon
I hear your soft voice calling my name Where is he? I wonder The flash of orange blinds me and I find myself at your side We feel a nice-smelling, gentle wind Time is slowed down I enchant you, you do not want me You cannot return Look at me in this whirlwind Listen to me in this whirlwind

Song Production Information
Yeye is a French musical movement that flourished in the 60s; it's basically a chanson with a strong beat. I aimed for a more mature sound for this song by taking that style as a base and adding in jazz and bossa nova elements. You probably can't tell as well while playing the game, but I was really fanatical about manually layering the sounds that compose this track up one by one. By the way, about the title "Marmalade Reverie". It came from a crazy image I had of a scenery made from an orange spiral pattern that sucked in my consciousness as I faced the center of the spiral.
Video Production Information
Eating and eating. Spy-movie style. Finally, carts full of marmalade. The girls run down the highway, and at last we reach the next Orange Lounge movie. First of all, the title is no good. A young girl's heart is week against the cuteness of jelly-shaped foods. When I heard the title I was sucked right into that sort of world. I can't stay there any longer.
These two young girls are making an appearance here yet again, but I'm also happy about their debut in GF7/DM6. Orange Lounge / T-san and F-san, thank you.
