Background[edit | edit source]

"Butterfly on Your Right Shoulder" is an original song by Nori-P and is his most popular work. It talks about a relationship that is in some way torturous, to the extent that it is as regretful as it is pleasant for the singer. The lyrics are clear, but are left vague enough to be interpreted in numerous ways. One interpretation is that the song is about someone who went out, hooked up, and was left feeling empty afterwards. Another interpretation is that the song is about Rin's love for Len and vice versa.

Originally sung by Rin, Len's version was released a month later and was also well received upon its release, becoming arguably more popular than Rin's version.

Though the song may have the same lyrics in both versions, the way the song starts, goes and ends are different. Rin's version has her singing clearly at the beginning, and ends with her chanting. In Len's version, Rin sings in the background, Len then screams and the song starts; he adds an additional line; and he sings at a different pace throughout the course of the song, ending without Rin's chanting.

Both versions have entered the Hall of Legend.

Description
A year after Butterfly on Your Right Shoulder was uploaded, Nori-P made another version of Butterfly on Your Right shoulder, titled 右肩の蝶 (Migikata No Chou) 3.0.1 Version, with Len as the singer. It was said to be a 'joke' or a parody of typical pop love songs. Although the instrumental was good, many people on Nicovideo laughed at how Len sang the song.

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
右肩に紫蝶々 キスをしたこの部屋の隅で migikata ni murasaki chouchou kisu o shita kono heya no sumi de
切ないと云う感情を知る 響くピアノ 不協和音 setsunai to iu kanjou o shiru hibiku piano fukyou waon

右肩に紫蝶々 キスをしたこの部屋の隅で migikata ni murasaki chouchou kisu o shita kono heya no sumi de
切ないと云う感情を知る 響くピアノ 不協和音 setsunai to iu kanjou o shiru hibiku piano fukyou waon

悪い夢にうなされた私を早く起こして warui yume ni unasareta watashi o hayaku okoshite
どんなことでも始まりは些細なことでしょう? donna koto de mo hajimari wa sasai na koto deshou ?
どこがいいかなんて 聞かれても困る綺麗な doko ga ii ka nante kikarete mo komaru kirei na
夜に惑わされたまま行方不明だから yoru ni madowasareta mama yukue fumei dakara
長いまつげ 三日月アイライン まぶたに乗せて光るリップ nagai matsuge mikazuki airain mabuta ni nosete hikaru rippu
