‘Hypnotized’ by Shanadoo

'Hypnotized' by European J-rock band Shanadoo incorporates a number of hypnotic images, especially spirals (sometimes in the eyes of the singers.) It also uses a number of English words, including "hypnotized" in the lyrics.

History: 'Hypnotized' was the group's first original hit, even though its actual performance on the pop charts was less than expected: before this, they covered tracks from the German dance band E-Rotic. Despite their Japanese origins they are a German and Japanese act, all of which makes the use of the English word "hypnotized" that much more interesting.

Commentary: It would be nice to know what they are singing about, but unfortunately I have not been able to find an English translation for the Japanese lyrics.

Addenda:

  • In this video, each of the singers are wearing the stereotypical Japanese school uniform look of white shirt, tie, skirt, high white socks and black shoes which is considered a fetish costume in Japan.

    I speak Japanese, but unfortunately I cannot make out a lot of what they are saying! I will see if I can find the lyrics online and translate for you.

      I have searched and have not found any such translation but I’m hampered by not knowing Japanese to see if there is anything on any Japanese fan sites (or German, for that matter.)

      If you can find a translation I would greatly appreciate it.

    Sorry to keep you waiting:
    ***
    I won't love anymore for eternity
    I don't believe in things like chance encounters
    The princes of Hakuba have all found other princesses
    But suddenly, tender eyes
    The floor shakes, (I'm) hypnotized
    My heart is bewildered, truth or lie ohh
    Tender eyes stare at me
    He's such an ideal handsome guy
    Shocking truth or lie, ohh
    Hypnotized
    Suddenly, kindness
    Oh I felt so weak
    I must not go under, I must not
    In a dream the two of us are
    dancing cheek to cheek
    Is this the start of a love story?
    But suddenly, tender eyes
    The floor shakes, (I'm) hypnotized
    My heart is bewildered, truth or lie ohh
    Tender eyes stare at me
    He's such an ideal handsome guy
    Shocking truth or lie, ohh
    Hypnotized
    But suddenly, tender eyes
    The floor shakes, (I'm) hypnotized
    My heart is bewildered, truth or lie ohh
    Tender eyes stare at me
    He's such an ideal handsome guy
    Shocking truth or lie, ohh
    Hypnotized

    Don't be sorry: you've managed to do what I couldn't, so you have my gratitude and thanks.
