[TRANS] 2019.10.13 Masato Nakamura praising J-JUN’s Cover 未来予想図II
(via DREAMS COME TRUE 中村正人のENERGY for ALL / FM FUKUOKA, 2019/10/13, 13:00-13:50 <Link>)
As promised, here are the most recent words of Nakamura-san from Dreams Come True about Jaejoong’s cover of 未来予想図II.
The greatest compliment, I think, an artist can give to another artist. I am so touched 🥺 All mistakes are mine so here goes:
“A lot of people have covered 未来予想図II but when Jaejoong sings it, it seems more like Jae’s original song than a cover – like it’s his alone.
I see Jaejoong singing in many places while enjoying music objectively, like myself. I think this is his power, and the overall strength of the staff supporting him.
You can say that 未来予想図II is a masterpiece of Dreams Come True but look at this way, a lot of people sings songs by The Beatles but don’t know that they are the original singers.
This is what I mean, I think it doesn’t really matter if people forget that 未来予想図II is a song by Dreams Come True. Even if this song stands through time as Jaejoong’s, it would make me really happy”.
End of translation.
I think his words are so profound and it cuts really deep. Nakamura-san hasn’t even met Jaejoong and he thinks of him this way through Jae’s singing alone. I really don’t think it gets any better than that.
You did very well @bornfreeonekiss
[TRANS] 2019.10.13 Jaejoong, How do you cover Dreams Come True’s famous song “#未来予想図II”? The appeal of vocals that Masato Nakamura praises
Jaejoong “Love Covers”
Jaejoong covered the masterpiece of Dreams Come True, which has been loved by many people. This will also be included in the cover album “Love Covers” released on September 25th. It’s not easy to cover famous songs that everyone knows. Of course, there will be pressure as it will be compared with the original. However, how do you interpret the song in your own way and arrange it while keeping the original color … That is also the way to enjoy the cover. Many of the cover songs that Jaejoong has performed so far have been well expressed.
Jaejoong’s vocal style is characterized by skillfully using breath with a high husky voice to express emotions. Miwa Yoshida of Dreams Come True, who sings the original, has a straight and clear voice without stagnation, and can be said to be a different type from Jaejoong.
How do you express the difference in vocal style? If Miwa Yoshida puts her happy feelings in love in her voice, Jaejoong felt that she was expressing the sadness of the woman in love. This expression of sadness may be Jaejoong’s uniqueness in this “Future Forecast II”.
Jaejoong said that he watched the live video of Dreams Come True dozens of times to sing this song and studied how it was transmitted to the audience. Masato Nakamura praised his official website blog, saying, “The attitude toward the song must have sublimated Jaejoong’s version song into a “one-of-a-kind song” rather than just a “good song”.
Jaejoong’s “Future Forecast II” to be unveiled at “Music Station” tonight. I’m sure they will tell us the “Future Forecast II” that is unique to Jaejoong, as they have shown us so far. Please feel their uniqueness while comparing with the original.
