KENJI

Fort Minor - Kenji

"My father came from Japan in 1905He was, 15 when he immigrated from JapanHe, he, he worked until he was able to buy this patchAnd build a store"
Let me, tell you the story in the form of a dreamI don't know why I have to tell it, but I know what it meansClose your eyes, just picture the sceneAs I paint it for you, it was World War IIWhen this man named Kenji woke upKen was not a soldierHe was just a man, with a family, who owned a store in L.A.
That day, he crawled out of bed like he always didBacon and eggs with wife and kidsHe lived on the second floor of a little store, he ranHe moved to L.A. from JapanThey called him 'Immigrant'In Japanese, he'd say, he was called, EsayThat meant 'First generation in the United States'
When everyone was afraid of the Germans, afraid of the JapsBut most of all afraid of a homeland attackAnd that morning when Ken went out on the doormatHis world went black 'causeRight there, front page news, three weeks before 1942"Pearl Harbour's been bombed and the Japs are comin'"
Pictures of soldiers dyin' and runnin'Ken knew what it would lead toJust like he guessed, the President said"The evil Japanese in our home country will be locked away"They gave Ken, a couple of daysTo get his whole life packed in two bagsJust two bags, couldn't even pack his clothes
Some folks didn't even have a suitcase, to pack anything inSo two trash bags, was all they gave themWhen the kids asked mum, "Where are we goin'?"Nobody even knew, what to say to themKen didn't wanna lie, he said, "The US is lookin' for spiesSo we have to live in a place called MandinarWhere a lot of Japanese people are"
Stop it, don't look at the gunmenYou don't wanna get the soldiers wonderin'If you gonna run or not,'Cause if you run then you might get shotOther than that, try not to think about itTry not to worry 'bout it bein' so crowdedSomeday, we'll get out, someday, someday
"As soon as war broke outThe G.I. came and they just come to the houseAnd you have to come all the Japanese have to goThey took Mr.Lee, people didn't understandWhy did they have to take him?Because he's an innocent labor"
So now, they're in a town with soldiers surroundin' themEvery day, every night, look down at themFrom watch towers up on the wallKen couldn't really hate them at allThey were just doin' their job andHe wasn't gonna make any problems
He had a little garden, with vegetables and fruits thatHe gave to the troops in a basket his wife madeBut in the back of his mind, he wanted his families life savedPrisoners of war in their own damn country, what for?Time passed in the prison town
He wanted them to live it down when they were freeThe only way out was, joinin' the armyAnd supposedly, some men went out for the army, signed onAnd ended up flyin' to Japan with a bombThat 15 kilotonne blast, put an end to the war pretty fastTwo cities were blown to bits, the end of the war came quick
Ken got out, big hopes of a normal life, with his kids and his wifeBut, when they got back to their homeWhat they saw made them feel so aloneThese people had trashed every roomSmashed in the windows and bashed in the doorsWritten on the walls and the floor 'Japs not welcome anymore'
And Kenji dropped both of his bags at his sides and just stood outsideHe, looked at his wife without words to sayShe looked back at him, wiped the tears awayAnd, said, "Someday, we'll be okay, someday"Now, the names have been changed, but the story's trueMy family was locked up back in '42My family was there it was dark and dampAnd they called it, an internment camp
"When we first got back from camp, uhhIt was pretty, pretty bad, I, I remember my husband said"Are we gonna stay 'til last?"
Then my husband died before they close the camp."



Dette er en helt fantastisk sang, syns jeg! Den er ganske gammel, og jeg husker at kjæresten min hørte på den for en god stund siden, men det er bare noen uker siden jeg hørte den for første gang hvor jeg virkelig fikk med meg teksten. Det er en utolig sterk tekst som virkelig gir et bilde på hvordan de uskyldige fra Japan ble behandlet av USA under andre verdenskrig. Den fantastiske rapperen Mike Shinoda fra bandet Linkin Park er selv delvis japansk og jeg vil da tro at dette er en sann historie om hans familie. Selv er hans fulle navn Michael Kenji Shinoda, derav navnet på sangen. Om dere ikke har hørt den før, burde dere virkelig høre den og følge med på teksten, for den er fantastisk bra om man bare hører etter!

Åh, elsker denne sangen! Dette er sangen de har brukt i Gina Tricots nye tv-reklame. Den er så utrolig søt og stilig samtidig! Absolutt en ny favoritt på min spilleliste.

Hva syns du om sangen?

Jeg er ikke så veldig flink til å finne ny musikk, men jeg hørte nettopp en skikkelig stemningssang. Sean Kingston ft. Cher Lloyf - Rum and Raybans og jeg fikk skikkelig partystemning av den! Den har gått på repeat på spotify i en times tid og den får meg til å se frem til sommer, varme, alkohol og generelt god stemning! Herlighet. Ny favorittsang - check!

Hva syns du om sangen? Har du hørt den før?

Elsker den nye låta til Rihanna, Diamonds! Skal ikke legge skjul på at jeg digger alle låtene hennes, og Diamonds var virkelig ikke en skuffelse!

Hva syns du om den nye låta til Rihanna?





SHE WOLF

You loved med and I froze in time
Hungry for that flesh of mine
But I can't compete with a she wolf who has brought me to my knees
What do you see in those yellow eyes
Cause I'm falling to pieces

Jeg har nettopp funnet min nye favorittsang! Jeg har alltid likt Sia helt siden jeg hørte Titanium som hun også hadde sammen med David Guetta. Hun har en fantastisk og utrolig stemme som jeg får helt frysninger av! Denne låten har utrolig høy partyfaktor samtidig som den var helt nydelig, og det skal ikke så mye mer til før det treffer meg midt i hjerterota. Nå har den gått på repeat 6-7 ganger, teksten begynner å falle inn og jeg har lastet den ned sånn at jeg får den på mobilen. Wee, jeg blir så glad av å finne ny musikk!

Har du hørt denne sangen før? Hva syns du om den?
