The Meaning Behind The Song: チューリングラブ (Turing Love) by ナナヲアカリ (Nanawoakari)
As a music teacher, I am constantly exploring new songs and genres to introduce to my students. One day, while browsing through the vast ocean of Japanese music, I stumbled upon a captivating song called “チューリングラブ” by ナナヲアカリ (Nanawoakari). Instantly, I was drawn in by the unique combination of catchy melodies and thought-provoking lyrics.
I remember stumbling upon this song at a friend’s house. They were an avid fan of anime, and they played the opening theme song for a series called “Science fell in Love, so I tried to prove it.” The anime explores the concept of love through a scientific lens, which immediately piqued my interest. As soon as the song started playing, I was captivated by its energetic beats and the spirited vocals of ナナヲアカリ (Nanawoakari).
Exploring the Lyrics
The lyrics of “チューリングラブ” delve into the complexities of love and its subjective nature. The song opens with the lines “あー、恋の定義がわかんない まずスキって基準もわかんない” (Ah, I don’t understand the definition of love, I don’t even know the criteria for liking someone). These lines highlight the confusion and uncertainty often experienced when trying to define and understand love.
Throughout the song, the artist expresses the difficulty of quantifying and calculating love, comparing it to the impossibility of solving complex mathematical equations. The chorus of the song emphasizes this theme with the lyrics “チューリングラブ 見つめあったったって解けないメロウ ワットイズラブ いま123で証そうか” (Turing Love, no matter how much we stare at each other, this mellow feeling cannot be solved. What is love? Let’s prove it right now, 1, 2, 3).
The use of references to mathematics, such as “QがあってAを出して解けるのに” (In most cases, there is a question and an answer that can be solved), adds an interesting twist to the song. It not only showcases the artist’s cleverness but also serves as a metaphor for the complexities and unpredictability of love.
The Essence of “チューリングラブ”
What I find truly fascinating about “チューリングラブ” is its ability to capture the essence of love’s intangible nature. The lyrics and the upbeat melody work in synergy to convey the underlying message that love cannot be easily defined or proven. It exists in a realm beyond logic and calculation.
As a piano player, I couldn’t help but appreciate the infectious rhythm and playful melodies of the song. The combination of electronic and pop-rock elements creates a vibrant and catchy sound that becomes even more captivating when coupled with the deep introspection present in the lyrics.
Listening to “チューリングラブ” by ナナヲアカリ (Nanawoakari) has been a memorable experience for me. The song’s ability to intertwine mathematical concepts with the complexities of human emotions is truly remarkable. It serves as a reminder that love cannot always be defined or understood, and that its true beauty lies in its enigmatic nature.
As both a music teacher and a lover of all genres, discovering songs like “チューリングラブ” allows me to not only expand my musical horizons but also explore the deeper meanings and emotions embedded within the lyrics.
