When Music Means Something Else: Checking some Lines in the Song Narda

 

If you love listening to bands, specifically rock bands, then you've probably heard the group named Kamikazee. Originally, the term kamikaze was a Japanese term for Japanese Special Attack Units of military aviators who flew suicide attacks for the Empire of Japan against Allied naval vessels, which happened during the 2nd World War. And that's a fact that happened.

But, if you're pronouncing Kamikazee with a double letter "e" at the end it's a play of words that describes "kami kasi" or is translated as "it's because of us."

Kamikazee band emerges during 2000, a Filipino rock band originally known all throughout its career as a quintet composed of Jay Contreras, Jomal Linao, Led Tuyay, Puto Astete, Bords Burdeos, Jian Lubiano, and Mikki Jill. Some of their albums are Kamikazee, Maharot, Long Time Noisy, and Romantico.


 
Anyway, we just introduced the band but the interesting part is one of their songs that made a hit in the airwaves, entitled "Narda." Especially now that the Darna series started.

Narda is the human character of the Superheroine, Darna, but for Kamikazee it is one of their songs under the Album "Maharot." A song themed about unrequited aspiration and love for the character Darna.

Though the song may have its wholesome image, there is a specific part of the song that is considered a double meaning. Taken from its album title "Marahot," which means playful or flirtatious, it probably has that notion to play with the idea.

The specific part gives reader a wild imagination on its meaning.

"Sa likod ng mga tala
Kahit sulyap lang, Darna"

If you're in your teens this has probably given away its meaning. Translated literally to fit what it deems to be the meaning, "Behind or beyond the stars, even just a glimpse, Darna." Does Darna fly beyond or behind the stars? Probably not, and what about the glimpse, can you really see Darna if she passes behind the stars? I think not again. So, what does the line means? If you're really an avid fan of Darna, what does she wear? She commonly wears a two-piece costume and if you're observant enough what design can you see on the upper piece of the costume? A "star," so if you do the math you'll land on what's behind the stars. It may sound perverted, obscene, or something else but that's what it intends if you have a playful mind. 

Not really sure if that particular line is intentionally created to give a double meaning or if it was just a random line. But if you're really drop-dead admiring Darna that would a thing to consider.

Again, the song is created under the album title "Maharot," so, it would be bad to think of flirtatious or kinky ideas with the song.

 

Well, will just have to find it out from the writer himself, if they thought of that in mind while writing the song. For now, let's make our minds go wild for a while.

The Darna series has started and Narda has shouted "Darna" and shows her first transformation. I think the song Narda of Kamikazee would not be applicable in this version of Darna because Ding is introduced as her sibling. 

If you have not heard of the song, I'm not sure where you are if you didn't, you'll definitely enjoy it. You can check it on youtube, spotify or other platforms.
