B’z At Music Station 3-Hour Special

Posted on April 1, 2011 by Tobias in News

First of all, throughout the show, they presented the best 120 songs that cheer you up. The audience voted Negai 107th and ultra soul 5th place. This time every artist performed two songs. B'z performed their new single "Sayonara Kizu Darake no Hibi yo" and "Brotherhood". Brotherhood is intended to cheer up the people that have been affected by the earthquake. As such Koshi changed one line: He sang "dare mo ga mainichi kutakuta ni natteru"(Everybody's getting exhausted every day) instead of "kocchi datte mainichi kutakuta ni natteru"("I'm getting exhausted every day").

As for "Sayonara Kizu Darake no Hibi yo" lyrics, check out the B'z Wiki: http://bzwiki.offthelock.com/Sayonara_Kizu_Darake_no_Hibi_yo_(Lyrics)

Oh and here's a little trivia for you B'z fans: Because of this song(Brotherhood), B'z fans call each other "B'z brother" in Japan.

Update: Put the Youtube video back there... if you like the song, buy the single.
