MAMI to provide a song for Yumemiru Adolescence's new single!


MAMI will be providing the song 「Exceeeed!!」 for Yumemiru Adolescence's new single out on 11/15.

「Exceeeed!!」 has a SCANDAL-like speedy band sound, and just like the meaning of the title to exceed [the limit, amount], the lyrics in the chorus (『Dareka ga ageta haadoru wa watashi-tachi wo kasoku sarerunda / Ima wo karoyaka ni koete ikou』 [The hurdles raised by someone else will speed us up / We'll easily go beyond the present]) make it a message song that tells of the group's current situation of holding new member auditions after a member left and another returned, as well as if the life-sized feelings of the four members were clipped out.

Additionally, the same song will be aired as the theme song for 『Concept! 2020』 on Shizuoka Asahi TV from 23:10 on 10/10 (Tue.).


【Release information】
Yumemiru Adolescence / Double A-side single 「20xx / Exceeeed!!」, out 11/15

20xx (Read as: Nisen Kisukisu) - Lyrics: Kanata Nakamura | Music: Hiroshi Sasaki | Arrangement: Kensuke Ushio

Exceeeed!! (Read as: Exceed) - Lyrics・Music: MAMI | Arrangement: Ryo Eguchi

【SCANDAL MAMI's comments】

・My feelings when accepting the offer

I was honestly happy! And since I had never provided a song to another artist before, I also felt "I want to take on the challenge!" Also, I was really excited that it'd be for an idol group instead of a band in the same field as us.

・Details about the lyrics and music
The music was made with the point of it being a song that'd shine at a live show. As we attended a dance school when the band formed and I naturally work thinking about the timing of singing and choreography in my head, it was a lot of fun to produce it with a different way of thinking than usual! While making the music, I wrote the lyrics thinking it'd be nice if I could make a 「positive」 message as the theme. Among them, I was conscious of putting in words that are girl-related, like "make-up" or "wink." Sometimes there are moments when you're playing a live show and your songs give you a push on the back. It'd be great if YumeAdo also thinks the same about this song 『Exceeeed!!』 !

・Feedback on the finished song
The emotional vocals are really great.
I think it's a song that makes YumeAdo's coolness even more prominent! So awesome!!
I want to see it live! And hear it! Yes!!





Here's a short preview of "Exceeeed!!" from a commercial for Concept 2020:

This is really a major promotion for Mami and a recognition of her songwriting talents! Lots of acclaimed songwriters work for idol groups so it's really great news for Mami.

Good for Mami.  She was blessed to be given "Koe" to sing, and now she's paying it forward to another group.  Hope it's a good song (but not so good I wish it to be Scandal's).

Here's the radio rip of "Exceeeed!!', the song written by MAMI for Yumemiru Adolescence (although you can only hear about a minute of the song):


https://streamable.com/vlivk


Some people posted ear-copied lyrics which sound accurate, so here's my translation of the lyrics:

Spoiler:
There are many things that we handled casually
For now, we'll cut down that finish line tape in front of us over and over again

That pleasant feeling we had then was real
But for some reason our hearts have just been worn down
And aren't satisfied at all

What we truly want to grab hold of
Probably can't be found in theory
As we ran around looking for it
On both sunny days and rainy nights
We knew were getting closer

There's a tomorrow we want to see
There's a scenery we keep dreaming about
A time that makes us want to run away has come
We won't turn our backs
The hurdles raised by someone else will speed us up
Let's keep going
We'll easily go beyond the present

Here's my English translation of "Exceeeed!!", the song written by MAMI for Yumemiru Adolescence.




Spoiler:
There are many things
That I handled casually
For now, I'll cut down that finish line tape in front of me
Over and over again

That pleasant feeling I had then was real
But for some reason my heart's just been worn down
And not satisfied at all

What I truly want to grab hold of
Probably can't be found in theory
I run around looking for it
On both sunny days and rainy nights
I knew I was getting closer

There's a tomorrow we want to see
There's a scenery we keep dreaming about
A time that makes us want to run away has come
We won't turn our backs
The hurdles raised by someone else will speed us up
Let's keep going
We'll easily go beyond the present

As I stand in front of the mirror
Even though I did
My usual makeup perfectly
I can only sigh
And can't smile
This isn't like me at all

I hadn't noticed that every little thing
Raised my shoulders up
The painful things make you cry
Aren't all they all necessary?

If you draw a line connecting
Each star in the cloudless night sky
A new morning will come for you
As you fall asleep with your heart beating fast

There's a tomorrow we want to see
There's a scenery we keep dreaming about
We're not scared
Of being enveloped by complete darkness!
My cowering self
Was what I always saw when I closed my eyes
I'll give it a wink and say goodbye
We'll easily go beyond the present

There's a tomorrow we want to see
There's a scenery we keep dreaming about
A time that makes us want to run away has come
We won't turn our backs
The hurdles raised by someone else will speed us up
Let's keep going
We'll easily go beyond the present

We'll easily go beyond the present
