Greetings, everyone! Bit of a break from sporking right now, to bring up something a little different.

I've mentioned before how I'm involved with the Ghost Trick Musical Project. Well, fellow LJ member [livejournal.com profile] helenvondrama is as well! Besides being a massive Ace Attorney fan, she is also working to make her way as a professional actress and singer. Her latest project was an English cover of "Mune Ga Doki Doki", which fans of Detective Conan will recognize as the J-Rock song used as the opening theme!

You're probably scratching your head, wondering why I'm bringing so much attention to this one cover in particular. Well... this one's kind of special to me. You see, after some time dithering around, I've finally had a chance to finish something I've really been wanting to do - put together an English translation of one of the many J-Rock songs I'm fond of.

That's right, folks. The English cover in that video? I did the lyrics! :D

For those who know the opening of the dub of Case Closed, I didn't use any of those lyrics. I looked at a literal translation and put it together in a way that I hope is pleasing and makes sense. I myself knew I'd be no good at singing it, but fortunately the awesome Helen was happy to give it a shot. And what a job she did on it!

So yeah, please take a listen! And if you like Helen's singing, please listen to her other covers (she's done a good many fandubs of songs from Studio Ghibli films - this was her first foray into rock!), give her feedback, spread word of her YouTube channel to other folks, and all that fun stuff. :)

Anywho, that's my announcement for today! Take a listen, tell us what you think, and stick around for some more music and sporkings. Hope you enjoy!
