Cowboy Bebop ED #1 The Real Folk Blues by The Seatbelts

This ED is a pretty deep, one of the most interesting parts to it is that each image in the ED looks more like a photo than typical ED. It presents the show as more “in real life,” than other animes do. It’s pretty cool that some of the lyrics say, “With one eye I can see tomorrow. And with one eye I’m gazing at yesterday.” Since in the show Spike did have a condition where he would relive (re see) the events of his past life.

Rough Translation:

Too much time has passed
To lament that I loved you
The wind’s still blowing
Through the unhealed gash in my heart

With one eye I can see tomorrow
And with one eye I’m gazing at yesterday
If only I could sleep soundly just one more time
In the cradle of your love

Somebody cry for me with dry eyes

THE REAL FOLK BLUES
I just want to know real sadness
A life spent soaked in the muddy river’s not so bad
If it’s over after one go-round

The despair that grew out of hope
And this chance with a trap laid in it
What’s good and what’s bad?
They’re two sides of the same coin

How long do I have to live before I’m healed?

THE REAL FOLK BLUES
I just want to know real happiness
All that glitters is not gold

    One of the best animes to ever be created, but the ending was a bit iffy. I mean it was a magnificent end but I can’t say I loved how it turned out.
