Description
A lot of children lives disappeared this year.
In Japan, the life that did not come up to nine years old has been cut by the adult.
It was a way back from the elementary school.
Girls were kidnapped.
And, the life was deprived.
They were the first graders of the elementary school still.
Criminal is not yet arrested.

Is there really Father Christmas?
Is there a wagon of the boast?
Is your magic only a pretense?

Please heal the spirits of children who lost the life if the spirit exists through all eternity.

Soul that doesn't obtain joy in this world.
Please put it to reindeer's wagon.
Please run very much about the sky.
Please make children pleased.
Please spend a holy night together with children.
I prays that your wagon begin to move by my music.

Music: Franz Gruber

Amen!
Trying to remember the last time I have been so moved by a piece of
music on MJ? Not just the music, but as usual, the song description.
This harkens back to Jimi Hendrix & the National Anthem at
Woodstock. I am amazed at the energy and emotion you have
somehow poured into GB2! (?) Incredible!

This is lovely, tragic, sad, beautiful, explosive, precious.

Amen!
I wish to express my gratitude for your kind word.
I imagined person's soul.
I imagine Jimi Hendrix.
His performance has "Spirit" not expressible in the word.
"Stars and Stripes Forever" in Woodstock.
It was his highest excellent performance demonstrated to the utmost limit.
The performance soaks about the soul to be deep.
I apply the highest point to "Stars and Stripes Forever" in Woodstock in all of
guitar players' performances.
I pray for the soul of a lot of children lives and Jimi is healed in the heaven.
I give a reward repeatedly.
Thank you very much.

peace asunder
A very uneasy silence. The pauses between the violent bursts of music
are devastating. The poem, a prayer caught briefly in the police car
headlights, is a perfect reading accompaniment.

Grim but beautiful in its imagery.

peace asunder
Peter,
Thank you very much.
Nobody can consent in an unjust end.
I prays for the purification of the soul where it disappears by the intensity of
feeling.
It did not suffice only beautifully.
I wish to express my gratitude to you.

Hendrix
It made me think of his National Anthem too. It certainly reflects the tragedy that you're talking about. This is very moving, expertly done.

Hendrix
David,
Thank you very much.
I feel "Spirit" in the music of Hendrix.
He is a historically great musician.
Music concerning person's soul is influenced by his results.

Peace!
Much less complex than usual Tadashi, and much more direct. The combination of the music and the song description paints a sad and saddening picture. As we are both fathers, this story is heart breaking for us both - this brought tears to my eyes.
Peace!

I pray that a sad children's soul overflows in the joy.

Nice!
It is impressive how you make the software instruments sound "humanized" by the actual sounds achieved and by the placement of notes and beats. Based on the sound, I would not conclude this piece was written without actual instruments. Very, very cool!

Taking in a deep breath...
Yes, the shadow of Jimi Hendrix... and added to that is your heart
and soul through those guitar strings. I believe there is not only
hope, but justice and comfort for those that have suffered. Thank
you for remembering them. Beyond the horizon..... there is daylight.

Beautiful performance.

Jack,
Thank you for benevolent words.
Parents who lost the infant daughter might be in the pool of despair.
It is felt that each one of gentle feelings like you improves the world.

Disturbing, but . . .
Disturbing, but if you're not disturbed by the victimization of children,
then you've got a very hard heart.

Excellent musicianship on this track. Wonderful use of silence and
space. Guitar technique is impeccable.

Beyond technique, the track, combined with the description, make for a
moving piece of music.

Thank you, Tadashi.

John,
I am honored for you to visit.
You are a teacher at the school.
You always receive children in gentle feelings.
A lot of young children disappear in Japan.
Moreover, children all over the world more than Japan are deprived of the life.
Very, it is a sad fact.
I wish to express my gratitude to you.
Thank you very much.

Thanks for bringing a new depth of emotion to this song. Well done!

I think that peace is something to be applied thoughout the year, not
just hollidays.

Thank you for the words. I hope the criminal is caught.

The ghost of Christmas past…
… and his name is Jimi Hendrix. Well done in taking a subject
close to your heart and pouring that emotion into a piece of music
like this. It's powerful stuff, both musically and thematically, and
an excellent performance. Thanks for putting this up and making
us think this Christmas.

I also apologize for the quadruple post. My Internet service continues to be very
erratic and my posts and listens keep hanging up. Sorry, Tadashi, for all the
extras...

I remain moved by your piece.

cool!
I was expecting yet another version of the song 'Silent Night' when I listened to this but was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't a version of Silent Night at all! This song was very moving and emotional. Very sad...it's like a song made from all of the sad news stories from the past year. Definitely keep up the good work! You have excellent song-writing abilities. Merry Christmas to you and all of your loved ones!

Powerful
It's got a powerful, raw sound, reminiscent, as others have already said of
Jimi. I'm very impressed by the realism of the instruments. I had no idea
you could do this kind of stuff with Garage Band. Excellent work!
