Interest Pile Sneaks Hidden Message into Song Lyrics
posted on 2016-03-20 15:45 EDT by Eric Stimson
The Korean-Japanese singer Pile's new self-titled album includes the song "P.S. Arigatō...," ("P.S. Thanks..."), which contains a message hidden in the lyrics.
At first glance it seems like a typical J-pop love song. The lyrics sing about "wanting to dream once more with you," "putting heart in the song," and, of course, lots of "shining." But the bold characters spell out a (somewhat) different message:
Maki-chan, I can finally say it. I really thank you [for everything] up till now. I'm here because of you. Watch over me gently somehow. P.S. Really, thank you.
"Maki-chan" refers to the character Pile plays in Love Live! School idol project. Although Pile's singing career predates Love Live!, her popularity has greatly increased thanks to her performance. She has been cast in the second season of World Trigger and will perform the opening theme of the second season of RIN-NE.
