    ただいま (井上喜久子)

    Pony Canyon PCCG-00270
    3000 yen
    released 1994.09.07


    This is the second solo album by Inoue Kikuko.

    The first pressing of this CD comes in cardboard package containing the CD plastic case and a 64 page diary. The cover picture has Kikuko swimming in the ocean, with just her head sticking out. The back cover has Kikuko sitting in an empty classroom with wooden desks and red chairs.

    The lyrics booklet is in color, and contains some pictures.

    The 64 page diary is in Kikuko's handwriting and covers the period from 1994.04.05 to 1994.07.13, when she was working on this album.

    The songs are as follows.

    1. Itsu no Hika
      「いつの日か」
      (lyrics and music by Inoue Kikuko, arrangement by Kawai Kenji)
      A slow song where Kikuko sings about her partner, that she will someday be together with.

      [Very nice lyrics.]

    2. Hitoridake no Party
      「ひとりだけのパーティー」
      (lyrics and music by Inoue Kikuko, arrangement by Hirotani Junko)

    3. Wendenyan no Uta
      「ウェンデにゃんのうた」
      (lyrics and music by Inoue Kikuko, arrangement by Kawai Kenji)
      A strange song where Kikuko sings about her stuffed dog Wendenyan, that she keeps with her all the time.

    4. Tomodachi
      「ともだち」
      (lyrics and music by Inoue Kikuko, arrangement by Kawai Kenji)
      A slow song where Kikuko sings about her old friends.

      (lyrics and music by Inoue Kikuko, arrangement by Kawai Kenji)

    6. Chocolate no Uta
      「チョコレートのうた」

      (lyrics and music by Inoue Kikuko, arrangement by Kawai Kenji)
      An upbeat, cheerful song where Kikuko sings about the god of choki (scissors in the paper, stone, scissors game). In the diary, Kikuko drew a picture of this god, that looks a little like a rabbit.

      In the interlude between verses, Kikuko and a bunch of kids play janken. Very cute!

    Kikuko says about the title of the CD..

    Since the single that I released was called Okaerinasai, it corresponds to that. But there are two other reasons. One means "tadaima" to my real self. With this kind of work, there is an outside me, and a me that comes home. So it means "I'm home" to that me with an open heart. Also I went to Manbou Island to take videos and pictures for the CD. So another meaning is "I'm back" to the ocean, that I think is my real home.

    Kikuko says about writing the songs and lyrics..

    In the previous CD, I wrote some lyrics but I couldn't quite say what I wanted. So I thought that it was going to be tough. In the past, I've always played with the melody when I write lyrics. When I sing the songs, the words just flow out. So it was very fun when I was creating these songs.

    I bought a tape recorder for this, and I carried it around wherever I went. When a song came to me while I was riding the train, I got off and ran to the end of the platform where there were no people. Then I sang into the tape recorder. I think some people thought I was strange.

    Since there was no theme to this album, nobody knew what kind of songs would be created. I wrote 14 songs, but one was too strange, and one was a song that sounded too much like something else. So there are 12 songs on this album.


    my rankings

    Itsu no Hika is my favorite song.
