I am doing another Best Live Series for this month’s post on my number one band, L’Arc~en~Ciel.
This time,I will share my favorite live performance of Farewell.
Unlike last month, when I was sharing Anata best live performance I had difficulty to choose amongst 3. Farewell is a piece of cake…There is only 1 contender.
Farewell is the first song in L”Arc~en~Ciel’s 4th Album, TRUE. This is what I think of the song:
This is a very beautiful song. They use this song as an opening in Shibuya 7 days, at that time they were playing behind a semi transparent curtain…the scene is so unforgettable. This song touches my heart so deeply. Love and nothing but love for this song. I love how Hyde raises his voice in this song and ken’s solo is also beautiful. The piano intro is so well-known (for Larc’s fans). Tetsu’s bass also felt dominant in this song.
My favorite line:
この 風 の よう に 優しかった なら
果てない 切なさ に 凍えた 貴方 を
守って 上げられた の に
And my favorite live performance of this song is in Shibuya 7 Days (2003). Hyde’s voice was not in his best performance (he had been singing for 7 days, it bounds to sound bad)…but the set up was so deep.
I love the way they cover the stage with thin fabric and the played behind it. The blue color makes it more beautiful. The song sipped in tomy heart deeper than in their other live performances.
If you are also Laruku’s fan like me…do share you version of Farewell best performance.
