Dress Down
Kaoru Akimoto Lyrics


背中のあいたドレス こぼれてしまいそうなイヤリング
乱れた髪 一筋もない
おどけたとりまき達 私が笑わないのを
不思議な目をして見ているわ

Dress down 早く見つけてよ (I'm just your babe)
そんなコにかまって つまらないはずだわ
Dress down 域が止まる程 (I'm lovin', lovin' it)
見つめられたくって
Please tell me, tell me, Why?

ブルーに揺れるライト あなたが近付いてくる
あわてたつま先もてあます
不機嫌にさせてくれて ありがとうって切り出したら
あなたは素敵に微笑んだ

Dress down わざとかき上げる (I'm just your babe)
髪の香りさえもはかられた誘惑
Dress down あなたが私に (I'm lovin', lovin' it)
夢中になる前に
I'm melting, melting, melting, melting you

Dress down わざとかき上げる (I'm just your babe)
髪の香りさえもはかられた誘惑
Dress down わざとはみ出した (I'm lovin', lovin' it)
口紅の魔力で
I'm waiting, waiting for you

Dress down あなたが私に (I'm lovin', lovin' it)
夢中になる前に
I'm melting, melting, melting, melting you

I'm so happy I finally managed to translate this song a little better now. It's not going to be perfect but here's my interpretation:


(She's describing her looks and outfit)
Open-back dress
Dangling earrings (earrings that seem like they're about to fall off/peek out)
Not even a single strand of hair that's messed up
My group of friends joked around
And are looking at me not laughing/smiling with a weird look on their face
(Maybe because she's dressed so well that they're judging? Might've mistranslated)
DRESS DOWN
Please come and find me now
Even if you care about a girl like that,
She must be boring
I want you to stare at me to the point you take my breathe away and
PLEASE TELL ME, TELL ME, WHY
The lights are flashing blue
You come in closer towards me
I don't know what to do because I'm flustered
(She doesn't know what to do with her feet as he approaches)
I say thank you for putting me in a bad mood
(Sarcastically because he has her all over the place without even speaking?)
And then you smiled beautifully when we broke the ice
DRESS DOWN
I brush my hair up on purpose
Even the scent of my hair was a trick to seduce you
(さえ is expressing her surprise to what he does to her)
DRESS DOWN
Before you're even head over heels for me
I'm melting
melting
melting
you
(She's got him under her spell before he even falls for her)
....
DRESS DOWN
I brush my hair up on purpose
Even the scent of my hair was a trick to seduce you

I stuck out my lips on purpose too
Using the charm/magical spell of my lipstick
And I'm waiting
waiting
waiting
For you...
Before you're even head over heels for me
I'm melting
melting
melting
you

So the folk who own this gem actually care about redistributing it to a new generation, neat. BTW for those of you looking for quality, Im pretty sure this is one of the highest quality recordings of Dress Down since it was uploaded by the people who own the rights to it.

Clarissa 1986

I'm listening to it with high quality Japanese 50mm HiFi drivers headphones and I can agree to the sound quality being very crisp and ultra clear and dynamic. And I love those stereo "effects" they implemented into this song. It sounds all so volumetric and instrument sounds change sides at times, based on how it fits the song. Sounds awesome! :D

BlackPhoenix77

I'm glad that they haven't tried to get the other versions taken down.

Brown Girl in a Clown World

Holy cow, you're right, this IS the official company! And they knew to put a clip from an 80s anime! They know about internet stuff! Lol.

Demo Gaming

@VIDCAs17 there's a whole remastered album now. Looks like they re released the whole thing

VIDCAs17

The only minor nitpick is that this video replaced the album version of "Dress Down" on the automatically generated "Cologne" playlist. When listing to the album, there's no longer the original transition between "Narcissist" and "Dress Down".

Still a very minor nitpick, and can be replicated using other uploads of the song.

Yes! Finally an official distribution of the song. This song sound so godly at high quality

Momo

I gotta say though, this upload does not sound like high quality to me. I think it is a remaster, the compression sounds much heavier than the flac I have been listening to for years.

The music fits in with with many scenes such as action or elevator type scenes when the characters are hanging out on a train whilst doing random stuff whilst waiting. Japan has a great range of music but you never see it outside of Japanese material. Even without the lyrics written up, the music just sucks you in.

first time hearing this song i like it i might actually start listening to city pop music.
