Hi-Standard was a Japanese melodic hardcore band who formed in 1991. The release Making the Road sparked sold-out Japan shows and US/European tours with punk bands such as NOFX, No Use for a Name and WIZO. Although members of Hi-Standard were Japanese born, all of the band's major releases were sung in English. Live footage of the band shows them talking to the crowd in their native Japanese and then immediately changing to English for the songs. more »

It was a summer day, a long hot summer day, not in '69
I met a girl on the beach with a tan of golden brown hair and long hair
We fell in love, she was a gift from the salty air
I couldn't imagine the day she would leave my life

Oh God, my love is like ice cream
The Summer sunshine melts it away
I'm so stupid, was it a dream?
It's a bitter memory
Summer of love

Not only love, but everything I do has gone like this
Why's that? So many, many shitty things, I don't have the thing I really love
I say I don't mind, but I really just pretend not to care
Life is long, so I can't cry all the time
Summer of love, summer of love, summer of love
