But Not For Me on Sakamichi no Apollon Episode 4
The interesting thing when you watch some anime with slice of life and musical genre is beside you can enjoy the story, also you can heard a good song. This time on Sakamichi no Apollon Episode 4 present a popular song, But Not For Me composed by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin. In the anime the song is performed by Jun and Kaoru but the real performance featuring Shinpei Ruike & Masayoshi Furukawa as Junichi performs. The song is also part of Sakamichi no Apollon Original Soundtrack.
I like the story and the song, the perfect combination for the anime but I wondering how they can enjoy the music when read Sakamichi no Apollon manga.
But Not For Me
They're writing songs of love, but not for me.
A lucky star's above, but not for me.
With love to lead the way
I've found more clouds of grey
than any Russain play could guarantee.
I was a fool to fall and get that way;
Heigh-ho! Alas! And also, lack-a-day!
Although I can't dismiss the mem'ry of her kiss,
I guess she's not for me.
