ENGLISH "Plastic Love" Mariya Takeuchi (Akane Sasu Sora)



“I’m just playing games!

I know that’s Plastic Love…”

Ah, the 80s. What a decade.

Um… the 2010s. Yeah. That’s what I meant.

There’s so much to say, and so little space. I’ll try to keep it brief as I can.

I did lyrics for Plastic Love back in January for my good friend Takara (check out her amazing cover here: and just knew I had to sing them for myself. Such a great song. Really takes you back to a time and place you weren’t even there for.

So with her blessing (and a cameo too) we set out to do a cover! It was originally just going to be clips from my vacation to Tokyo this past summer, but my editor came up with this cool idea with old Japanese TV to try and evoke the same feeling the song does. This is the result. I hope you all like it!

Plastic Love was the song to cap off the decade. Period. I don’t know how to explain it, but it just… feels right, you know? Something about it is so melancholic, yet hopeful. I think that’s where a lot of us are right now.

Let’s make the next decade the best one yet.

‘Til then!

LYRICS:

You think you’re feeding a fire
with eager kisses and slow hands…
But honey, you’re just another
no-name player in the program…

I just plan the in-between:
everything from goodbye to hello…
Pretty soon, the end will come. It always does, so
Don’t hurry!

I still remember the moment
the clocks, they lost all their meaning…
A sunrise over the night’s end…
I’m up all day in the evening…

at another discotheque…
Dance away! It’s all the same to me…
Just a little lie I’ve led to forget,
I’m sorry!

Loving me isn’t like all the others!
You’ll see, I’m a different kind of lover!
Love’s a game, no matter how much it hurts…
If I’m having fun, you’ll feel it when we’re done!

These fancy dresses and shoes are my armor!
Shining brightly, they hold me together
and keep my heart from feeling lonely…

I don’t know why or if there’s a reason…
Every guy that I’ve met ever since then…
Asks me out, but they all look just like him…
And I feel it bend… My heart starts up again!

So even if glasses slip through my fingers…
Flowing slowly, they drip down and linger…
Never ask me why I’m crying…

I close my eyes on the highway,
while in the back of a taxi…
But I can still see the lights sway,
and hear you stumble to ask me…

Even if a silent voice
whispers this, “Her kiss is cold as ice!”
You’ll just have to be the light for the night…
Don’t worry!

I’m just playing games!
I know that’s plastic love…
Dance to the plastic beat!
Another morning comes…

I’m just playing games!
I know that’s plastic love…
Dance to the plastic beat!
Another morning comes…

I’m just playing games!
I know that’s plastic love…
Dance to the plastic beat!
Another morning comes…

I’m just playing games!
I know that’s plastic love…
Dance to the plastic beat!
Another morning comes…

Thank you everyone. I’ll see you soon.

  • I love the hiding of real drama of "I close my eyes on the highway…. from the back of a taxi" That 's the level of pain I hear in reading the direct translations of the lyrics I've found. I bet its still a new experience of the drama of it specific to english

  • I love this cover immensely!
    No matter how many translations, styles, and versions there are of this song, I can't get bored of it, or not love it as equally as the others!
    Thanks immensely for this!
    Your voice lends itself amazingly to Plastic Love!
    And on the topic of the visuals– those were suuuper well done as well!
    I love that you've got visuals that solidify the atmosphere you're potraying in the audio!
    It's not only a unique execution of the concept, but one that fits perfectly with the source!
    Can't wait to see what you do in the future!

    Kidding of course. But this is a real neat cover – makes me miss that old CRT tv of mine, haha.
