Aimyon's "Ai wo Tsutaetaidatoka": A Song About Love and Communication

愛を伝えたいだとか(Ai wo Tsutaetaidatoka) is a song by the Japanese singer-songwriter Aimyon. It was released on September 11, 2017, as a single and is also included on her third studio album, “Excitement of Youth”

The song's title translates to "Did I Successfully Convey My Love?" and the lyrics explore the complexities of communication in relationships. Aimyon sings about the fear of being misunderstood and the struggle to express one's true feelings to a partner.

The song seems to be an expression of a lover's—or would-be lover's—burning resentment for another. It is more of a song about partially reciprocated love than it is about unrequited love. The song depicts the singer cursing, being sarcastic, and using sweet language towards the lover. The structure of the song reveals that this is more of an internal conflict that the singer is having while practising his or her lines than a discussion that is actually taking place between the characters.

The song features Aimyon's signature style of blending catchy pop melodies with introspective and heartfelt lyrics. It became a hit in Japan, peaking at 51st place on the Oricon weekly singles chart and also placing weekly 15th on Billboard Japan Hot 100.

Kuma Kim's Piano Cover of Aimyon's 'If You Want to Convey Your Love'

The song is peppy, cheerful and danceable; hence it has been famous all over the globe. One of the cool piano covers has been made by Kuma Kim and posted on YouTube on March 22nd 2022 and has more than ten thousand views. Kim titled the [Piano] 사랑을 전하고 싶다던가 - 아이묭 (악보) (kor. [Piano] If you want to convey your love - Aimyon (music score)) literal translation of Japanese song’s name to Korean. The original song is in D major key and Kim’s cover is in the key signature A major. The original song has a tempo of 100 BPM and Kim’s cover also has 100 BPM for the song. The song has a time signature of 4/4. The time duration of both songs is also different, the original song is three minutes and fifty-five seconds whereas Kim’s cover has two minutes.


The original song starts with the repeated beats seven times and then there is two times addition on the guitar then the song starts to the first verse. This takes ten seconds of the intro music, which is high in beat and hype. Kuma Kim also starts the song, where he doesn’t play the piano but there are beats playing seven times and the eighth time he plays the piano once before continuing into the verse. With the intro of the video, his intro part takes twelve seconds of the song.

Verse 1

Verse 1 starts with the lyrics and after verse 1 there is a small instrumental part and after that, there is a chorus. It takes around thirty seconds and a tiny three to four seconds of instrument playing in the original song. The lyrics are a day in the life, where the singer wakes up, wanting to hear ‘I love you’, doing mundane chores like opening curtains, and looking slightly out of place fridge but still everything is fine. But what doesn’t feel fine is fried egg bursting and the golden part flowing, then the singer makes balance for the time being today being hot and sour or even sweet. The singer is feeling all kinds of emotions and is affected by even the small things like the breaking of the yoke. Internally she is hyped whereas doing just normal chores.

Kuma Kim follows a very similar approach to the song. The song sounds happy and the beats are well-played. Kim also put the lyrics to the song in Japanese along with Korean translations to the song. It feels like his hands are also light and the song is dynamic there are many different keys and chords played. There is a lot of movement of the left hand as compared to the right hand. Kim also added a background of the beats of the original song so as to add to the atmosphere and to add to get the feel of the original song as much as possible. Kim’s verse ends at the forty-nine seconds mark and as soon as his verse ends he jumps to the chorus of the song.


In the original song where the singer is taking the song up a notch and singing at a higher pitch. Then again comes down a bit. Then at a minute and fourteen seconds the chorus is completed then there is again a small instrumental part for six seconds before starting the second verse of the song. The song lyrics is the singer thinking as to how the singer should express the love she has for the person she wrote this song to. Like she is spending her time thinking and coming up with cheesy phases and gradually sinking onto the couch and waiting for the person, and thinking if they will meet after the sunset in the evening. These things are happing in the singer’s head and coming up in the conversation between them.

The song is still feeling motivated and the singer is thinking of ways to express her love. We can hear this through Kim’s cover as well. Again, the left hand of the pianist is moving in a dynamic fashion. The music expresses the singer’s thoughts so falling and waiting to express her love, thinking, conflicting and waiting can be heard through the piano played. The lyrics end in Kim’s song at a minute and eighteen seconds and Kim’s hands come towards the extreme left side of the piano and play a small bit before going towards the second verse. There the lyrics and title of the song are written in the bigger letter in the video. Then the pianist is going back to the middle part of the piano. Then he repeats the song four times and then again plays with slight variation. After that Kim plays the divider and plays notes a bit more force and then proceeds to play the song. Once more he plays the part of the song, as he processes the song starts around a minute and forty-eight seconds. The song fully fades to black after four seconds and still seven seconds left to the two minutes and end of the video the song fully ends by Kuma Kim.

There is whole other half of the song is left with Verse 2, Chorus, Bridge, a second Chorus and finally the Outro of the original song. The song then goes on a spiral as the singer then starts to doubt if the other person wants her love, she feels lonely and can’t contain her emotion. Tears start to fall; she doesn’t know what to do. So, she finally decides for the time being today she will end her day early and to bed then again she will dream about her love and feel dumb. She wants the next day to spend time just the two of them. This heartache is too much for her. She is so done with this and thinking of ways to be with them. So she wants to properly communicate her love to them. Being sick of this she is again now firmly thinking of coming off the cheesy line but communicating her love. Ending the song with the same question:

“Today, will I be able to see you by the time the sun goes down”

The song has strong lyrics and the bgm is adding well to the emotions that the singer wants to convey.

But Kim decided to end and make a short version of this song. The short version was also as amazing as the original and full would have been. The short and sweet version has also filled the appetite of the lovers of the song. We all still hope that he would release a full version as it would still amazing and wonderful as this one.
