Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai

Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai (女が目立って なぜイケナイ)  is currently my most played song in my music playlist. Probably the best song from Morning Musume’s Platinum Era in my opinion.

Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai

Morning Musume current lineup when the single debuted (from left): Michishige Sayumi, Kamei Eri, LinLin, JunJun, Mitsui Aika, Tanaka Reina, Niigaki Risa, Takahashi Ai

So why does this song stands out from the rest? I love the song arrangement, feels very upbeat and enjoyable, also it has this presence of Spanish flamenco feel, or maybe its the haunting guitar strum. I love Kamei Eri’s solo lines here, I love her voice. These are one of the many songs I don’t get bored to be put on endless repeat.

Romaji

Shawaa shite kagami wo mitsumeru
Meikutte totemo tanoshii
Sukoshi gurai hade ga ii mitai
Sono hou ga sesuji ga nobiru
Onna ga medatte naze ikenai

Mune no oku no houga
Bibibi uzuiteru wa
Koi ga hajimari sou
Onna no kan ne
Itsudemo junbi ok!

Moshimo bijin bakka no yono naka ja
Minna heibon na no sa
Ano ko kono ko tonari no ko
Saa sa wo tsukeyou
Yatto deban no you ne
Massugu kagayake my face

Tsuyoime no kaze ga sukaato wo
Mekutte mo sonna no kini shinai
Shigeki nara tsuyoi hou ga ii
Sono hou ga iroiro moeru
Onna ga medatte naze ikenai

Monku no nai kurai
Kyou wa tenki ga ii
Minna mite iru wa
Suketa shatsu to
Yureru watakushi wo

Moshimo yuumeijin bakka no yono naka ja
Nyuusu ga tsumaranai yo
Doko mo koko mo ano basho mo
Zenbu suteeji
Yatto maku ga agaru wa
Massugu tokimeke my smile

Moshimo bijin bakka no yono naka ja
Minna heibon na no sa
Ano ko kono ko tonari no ko
Saa sa wo tsukeyou
Yatto deban no you ne
Massugu kagayake my face

English

I take a shower and look in the mirror
Putting on makeup’s a lot of fun
Seems like a little on the flashy side is best
It makes me stand taller
Why shouldn’t a girl stand out?

Deep in my heart
There’s a t-t-t-tingle
I think I’m about to fall in love
It’s a girl’s intuition
I’m always prepared, OK!

If everyone in the world was pretty
We’d all be ordinary
OK, I’m gonna make myself a cut above
This girl and that girl and the girl next door
It feels like it’s my turn at last
Let my face shine through

I don’t care if the strong-ish wind
Lifts up my skirt
You’ve gotta be provocative
That sparks all kinds of passion
Why shouldn’t a girl stand out?

The weather’s good today
Can’t fault it at all
Everyone’s looking at me
As I sway
In my sheer shirt

If everyone in the world was famous
The news would be boring
Here, there and everywhere
Is a stage
The curtain is about to come up at last
Let my smile show straightforward excitement

If everyone in the world was pretty
We’d all be ordinary
OK, I’m gonna make myself a cut above
This girl and that girl and the girl next door
It feels like it’s my turn at last
Let my face shine through
