WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

Blind has made me want to play Hide And Seek


Everyone and their mother has seen Blind by Percula, right? If not, go ahead and watch it above. Better yet, go to the actual vimeo page and watch it in high definition. Then come back here for more Blind-goodness.

Blindly satisfied? Great! It's been the #1 search topic on WoW Insider for a bit, so I know people must love it.

The only complaint that folks have about the video is the sound can be rather rough at times. I have to admit that I think this as well (to some extent), however it's nothing that really detracts from the video itself. Further, it's interesting to note that the audio distortion is present in the original song Percula uses as well, which leads me to believe it was an artistic choice of the artist.

But no matter what you think of the audio quality, I haven't ran into anyone who thinks the song doesn't match up beautifully with the animation and story itself.

But therein lies the question – what are the lyrics? The song playing is "Hide & Seek" by Namie Amuro. I wasn't familiar with her, so after some Wikipediaing, I learned that she is a Japanese singer that was, and to a large extent still is, quite popular.

Take a look after the break for more about the song "Hide & Seek," including the lyrics.

Namie released her seventh album "Play" in June of 2007. The album debuted at #1 over in Japan, and marked Namie's first number one album since 2000. "Hide & Seek" was released on the CD, and not as a single.

Despite its appearance as only a track on the CD, the music video won the "Best R&B Video" prize from the MTV Video Music Awards Japan in 2008. You can check out the video below.



The lyrics to the "Hide & Seek" are as follows:

Step Step into the floor
Shake Shake on the floor
Bounce Bounce Bounce Bounce
Take Take it to the floor
Shake Shake on the floor
Hide & Seek Ah 1 2 Step C'mon

kondo no HOT na Style mo soutou sukinai
boutou semeteku houkou
osae kirenai shoudou
hani gaide noukou na mitsu wo motto
ikenai asobi shittara ato ni
modorenai kyori (Everyday your eyes on me)
yureru Floor agaru ondo kikoeru kodou
You're feelin' you never never lower your voice

Wah Hit the floor "Bang Bang"

It's time to bang bang bang your head
Ow kidukeba dandan yamitsuki "Bounce Bounce"
It's time to bang bang bang your head
You wanna catch me (Hide & Seek)
You wanna touch me (Hide & Seek)

Step Step into the floor
Take Take it to the floor
Shake Shake on the floor

Step Step into the floor

heitan na Sunday kara Monday ki no sumu made
You gotta just shake shake shake your body

Wah Hit the floor "Bang, Bang"

It's time to bang bang bang your head
Ow kidukeba dandan yamitsuki "Bounce Bounce"
It's time to bang bang bang your head

adokenai soburi Make me say Uh Uh Uh Uh
hakkiri to Oh tell me want you wanna do do do do
Boy you sexy thing like a gorgeous ring
sokkenai furi sore mo tenouchi
My heart is beatin' Keeps on repeatin'
arienai suuchi I wanna see your body bounce for me

Wah Hit the floor "Bang Bang"
ashimoto "Bounce Bounce"
It's time to bang bang bang your head
Ow kidukeba dandan yamitsuki "Bounce Bounce"
It's time to bang bang bang your head
You wanna catch me (Hide & Seek)
You wanna touch me (Hide & Seek)
kanari Crazy (Hide & Seek)
This is another level
If you wanna get the real thrill
saa Let's play kakurenbo
Boy You gonna try to find me

So there you have it, more Blind for ya!
