From Janis: I can’t decide if I like the arrangement, the video, or the vocals best – I love seeing the pictures, the background vocals, the homage to karaoke and early Japanese pop music, and hearing Takahiro Maeda’s lyric adaptation in an entirely different vein. Even the modulation at the end makes me happy. In fact, this entire “take” just makes me smile, a lot!

Make sure to check out his “Momochan” homage as well:

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
