Olympic Zard Games, new files for download, new reviews
Well, this is my last update from Holland, I'm leaving for Hong Kong tomorrow.
I will try to keep updating from there, but I can't promise anything.
The Japanese TV station NHK which will broadcast the Olympic Games in Sydney
has chosen Zard to provide the theme song for it. This news is found at
Zard Hold Me (thanks Miranda) and
what follows is a translation of that news by Retsuya:
- The NHK sydney Olympics theme song has been finished by Zard,
the demotape has been sent to NHK. This song is going to be played
during this month's press conference and Izumi might even make an
appearance there. This song has lyrics and music that would make
people dance to the music, and with Izumi's voice, it will definitely help
cheer for the Japanese athlets. The reason for picking Zard is because
NHK wanted a group with certain reputation within the country and must
have a great singer that will bring out the spirit of the Olympics. -
I have added two multimedia files, both of them are from the Cruising & Live
concert. Check them out here. In addition Mike Song has
sent in some great reviews for the singles Makenaide, Don't You See!,
Itai Kurai Kimiga Afurete Iruyo and for the
Cruising & Live album. Many thanks!

As you have probably noticed, the new layout for my Zard page is finally ready.
Most of the things in the old page are also included here in the new page and there
are even some new sections added. The
lyrics & translations section for example. Thanks
goes to Ryuichi for allowing me to use his translations. He has translated tons of
Zard songs and they are certainly an added value to any Zard page.
Multimedia is another new section, there you will
find Zard's music videos, TV appearances, theme songs etc. in multimedia formats
like mpegs and realvideos. There are just four files to choose from now, but more
will be added very soon.
Well, feel free to explore around and send in comments by using
