Background[edit | edit source]

"Nostalogic" is a song featuring MEIKO by yuukiss. The song became one of the triggers for the "Loli Meiko" also the development of the official derivative Sakine Meiko by Nanameue-P and Daigoman. It's featured in the album "VOCALOID Produced by Yamaha". The long/full version, featuring the PV by yumiko, was uploaded 2 years after the original, which surpassed the original in popularity.

The song has various meanings; it may tell of MEIKO who longed for the days of the past. Yuukiss has a tendency to add parts of lyrics / melodies to his other works (so they all are somehow connected); a melody of Nostalogic can be heard in the song "FLOWER TAIL" sung by KAITO; and "FLOWER TAIL" has similar lyrics with "Fairy-taled" sung by MEIKO. Some may interpret that, even though the genre and singers of the three songs are completely different, they may be related in terms of lyrics and melody.

On November 5, 2014, yuukiss uploaded a version called, "Nostalogic (MEIKO-SAN mix)" in celebration of MEIKO's 10th Anniversary. This version uses MEIKO's natural tone as opposed to "Loli Meiko". It was however, featured in the album Vocalospace beforehand. This day also marks it where Nostalogic had reached #1 on NicoNico Daily VOCALOID Ranking.

On November 8, 2015 the single edit version had reached one million views, reaching the Hall of Legend.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

(M-E-I-K-O M-E-I-K-O…)
(Uh Yeah A-ha…)
(Fuh Ooh…)

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
ふいに過(よ)ぎる ハシャギ声 fui ni yogiru hashagi goe
"0"と"1"で残された Passed days "Zero" to "ichi" de noko sareta Passed days
胸を衝(つ)く 痛みの理由(わけ)は mune o tsuku itami no wake wa
後悔? それともNostalogic…? akirame? soretomo Nostalogic...?

瞬(またた)く 光に誘われ matataku hikari ni sasoware
過去を 辿り・巡り・我に返り kako o tadori meguri ware ni kaeri
目の前に 広がる景色は me no mae ni hirogaru keshiki wa
君と観た 未来と同じ Kimi to mita mirai to onaji

遠くに消えた touku ni kieta
落描きの唄 きっと rakugaki no uta kitto
色褪(あ)せないで iro ase naide
今も 僕に 聴こえてる Ima mo boku ni kikoeteru

遠くに見えた touku ni kieta
約束の場所 ずっと yakusoku no basho zutto
息 弾ませて iki hazumasete
今も 僕は 目指してる Ima mo boku ni kikoeteru
今も 君は 目指してる…? Ima mo kimi ni kikoeteru...?

(La La La La Ha-aah…)

無為に過ぎる 時間だけ Mui ni sugiru jikan dake
同じ位置で眺めてた Like chess pieces Onaji ichi de nagame teta Like chess pieces
薄れ往く輝き それは Usure iku kagayaki soreha
目的? それとも Nostalogic…? Mokuteki? Soretomo Nostalogic...?

羽ばたく翼を横目に Habataku tsubasa o yokome ni
空回り・ばかり・焦り募り Karamawari bakari aseri tsunori
語り合った 「希望+可能性」 Katariatta "kibou + kanousei"
あの日々が ただ恋しい Ano hibi ga tada koishii

遠く見据えた 始まりの場所 きっと Touku misueta hajimari no basho kitto
ただそれだけが Tada sore dake ga
今の 僕を 支えてる Ima no boku o sasaeteru
今の 僕を 支えてる Ima no boku o sasaeteru

朝が来るまで 目を閉じて Asagakurumade mewotojite
そして羊と後悔を 数えるの Soshite hitsuji to koukai o kazoeru no
戻れないことぐらい 判ってるけど Modorenai koto gurai wakatterukedo
でも だけど 理想は捨てずに Demo dakedo risou wa sutezu ni

遠くに消えた 落描きの唄 きっと Touku ni kieta rakugaki no uta kitto
色褪(あ)せないで Iro ase nai de
今も 僕に 聴こえてる Ima mo boku ni kikoeteru

遠く目指した 約束の場所 ずっと Touku mezashita yakusoku no basho zutto
息 弾ませて Iki hazuma sete
今も 僕は 目指してる Ima mo boku wa mezashiteru
今も 君は 目指してる…? Ima mo kimi wa mezashiteru...?
