Note: If you think this translation makes these lyrics sound “too simple” or “too slangy” that’s because these lyrics are, in fact, simple and slangy.  You may not like it, but I’m sure that Mr. Sakurai doesn’t care.

1) There are two double-entendres in this line.  “Ai ni iku” usually means “go to meet [someone].”  Here, however, “ai” is spelled not with the kanji for “meet,” but the kanji for “love,” whereas “iku” is spelled not with the kanji for “go,” but rather in katakana.  When spelled in katakana, “iku” means “to come” in a sexual sense.  If this sounds familiar, it’s because we saw this one before in the lyrics to “Climax Together.”

2) The phrase “ii ne” literally means “it’s good,” but lately in webspeak has acquired the meaning of “liking” things on Facebook and it seemed amusing to translate it this way given all the fans and their social media activities.

3) Luna Park is a now-defunct international amusement park chain.  A Luna Park opened in Tokyo in 1910, but burned down a year later under suspicious circumstances and was reconstructed in the Shinsekai district of Osaka, where it operated between 1912 and 1923.  The only remainder of the park that still stands today is the Tsutenkaku Tower, still a major Osaka landmark.  I can't think why Luna Park is mentioned in these lyrics, but it does evoke a retro-carnival vibe.

4) “Moon Light Drive” is the title of a famous song by The Doors, whose keyboardist, Ray Manzarek, passed away last spring right around the time this song was written.  I’m not sure if this line was a deliberate homage to Manzarek, but it is most certainly a Doors reference.  The Doors had a huge influence on the glam and new wave movements.

5) I took a few liberties with the translation of this line, to make the English lyrics fit with the music.  The literal translation would be “life / rude / crazy love,” but the implied meaning is, since we only have one life, there’s no point in not doing outrageous things when it comes to love.  As an aside, I think writing out the sexual moans as “Ah!  Ah!  Ah!” in the lyric booklet was a nice touch on the part of the production team.




NOTE: The Polish translation is a re-translation of the English translation by Cayce.  Cayce has zero familiarity with Polish, so the quality of this translation is unvetted, but Polish-speaking fans, enjoy.
