"Yesterday" I had a dream of you
I gave your love away but I belong to you

Rainy days on my hair without you
Sunny days on my skin around you
I feel better when I remember yesterday yeeh

Memories in my heart how does thath feel
Memories in my mind seems to be real 
 What a wonderful tale about my yesterdays 

      In the night I was awake for love 
          But I had no fear to break my heart 
      In the light of burning summertimes 
          When I had the life in ..... 

      Remembering "Yesterday" I had a dream of you 
      I gave your love away but I belong to you

      Remembering "Yesterday" I had a dream of you 
      I gave your love away but I belong to you

* Funny faces a pictures in my hand 
  Crazy races to play ball on the sand 
   What a wonderful chance to feel my yesterday...

Song Production Information


About a year and a half ago, a "ParaParaParadise" cabinet was placed next to the IIDX cabinet in the production room. I personally loved "YESTERDAY", which seems to be one of the biggest hits in the SUPER EUROBEAT history.

I never properly listened to Eurobeat until that moment, but this song allowed me to change some of my preconceived stereotypes about the genre. Anyways, the song and synths both are just beautiful.

Video Production Information


This song is quite memorable for HES.
It was aired on TV and other media about a year ago, wasn't it?
I never really thought about the meaning of the lyrics, but the image of a teenage girl seemed suitable(?).
That's why for the 16-color animation, I intentionally tried to draw a pose as if I had taken a photo a year ago. A hot summer day bursting with youth. A photo of memories. That kind of image.

And for the movie, YUZ finished the material of Para Para Paradise in one day (it's not a movie, so it's a bit difficult). (Those who've made even one short movie should appreciate that this speed is extraordinary.)
Check this out too!

A normal notechart like this just seems to suit myself as a LIGHT7 advocate, and I enjoy playing it while listening to the song. Of course when playing at a store, there's a large crowd, but I choose LIGHT7 if it's 7 stars or higher. I'll be happy if the song is played at a loud volume and synchronized with LIGHT7 at the arcade.
