飴色の背中に悲しみのくきがのびる

「月光の白き林で
木の根掘れば蝉の蛹のいくつも出てきし
ああ

それはあなたを思い過ぎて変わり果てた私の姿
月光も凍てつく森で
樹液すする私は虫の女」

戸川純:『玉姫様

This is Togawa Jun's 1984 debut solo album, Tamahimesama ("Jewel Princess").
This is the voice of Heaven. This is the voice of the Divine.

i got ht by a car yesterday and cracked a couple ribs so im coked to the gills on painkillers. Anyhow I downloaded this a while ago and never listened to it but today i'm laying here half asleep/ half passed out from pain with my itunes on shuffle and the song odorenai comes on... i thought i had lost my fucking mind.

踊れない:odorenai, "Can't dance"

I love this song.
I love this album.
I love Togawa Jun.

The song is about robotic disconnection from emotion and action. It is a bit.... different when you first hear it. The live version from the 1985 tour is fucking hot. HOT!

Really sorry to hear about your injury. Hope you are doing ok.
