I have been fortunate enough to have been involved in Japanese culture since the early 80s.
Goro Matsui is a wonderful Japanese poet that has written many many pieces over the last few decades. I was actually surprised that Dimash chose this lyric from Goro. And it made me wonder how he came to know this song since their cultures are fairly far apart.
Goro was the lyricist who wrote his debut lyrics for the album Hot Wind by the popular Japanese duo Chage and Aska. After that he collaborated with such groups as Anzen Chitai, Kyosuke Himuro, Hound Dog and others.
The poet gained the greatest popularity after he began to cooperate with Japanese rock bands. Goro Matsui is the author of more than 2,000 lyrics, one of which is the lyric to the legendary song “Ikanaide” by Koji Tamaki.
I know this may sound cheesy, but I truly think that Dimash sometimes picks music not just for his fans’ preferences, but of people that he is honoring, that have gone before him for greatness, in hopes to inspire others to be great.
