Song of the Day

Song of the Day//Scars by X Japan

 

Today’s song of the day is a live performance of my favorite X track, Scars from their last live in 1997. I really adore this performance. hide’s vocals at the beginning really add a nice touch to an already awesome song.. An interesting little thing about Scars, its the only single that wasn’t written by Yoshiki. Instead it was hide who composed the music and wrote the lyrics. I think, in comparison to Yoshiki, the lyrics are very very different.

A little bit of information:  For the majority of X Japan’s existence it was Toshi on vocals, hide and Pata on guitars, Heath on bass and Yoshiki on drums. Taiji left the band in 1992 and was replaced by Heath. Currently, Luna Sea’s Sugizo plays in place of hide.
