Tokimeki is the romanization of the Japanese term ときめき which can mean excitement or heartbeat.
For international Eels, the word “Tokimeki” appears to have gained prominence following the release of the anime television series, “Tokimeki Midnight,” which was adapted from the manga of the same name and broadcast from 1982 to 1983.
In the series, a high school girl with the rather unusual supernatural power - being able to transform into whatever she bites - falls in love with a brash yet handsome athlete who just happens to be an unrecognized, supernatural prince.
Sound familiar, Eels?
As if to confirm what he said on My Ear Candy about spending most nights at home alone watching a movie or listening to music, Jang Keun Suk took to Instagram to post an emblematic photo. The photo shows he's playing a video with the song "Je Suis Seul Ce Soir" which translates to "I Am Alone Tonight." The song is from the OST of the 2011 Woody Allen movie "Midnight In Paris."
Always proving himself an eclectic lover of films and music, JKS apparently turned to this Woody Allen film and the film's OST for his...and his Eels...evening entertainment.
The song was originally recorded by Lucienne Delyle, a French singer who was born in Paris in 1917. She became the most popular French female singer of the 1950s. She died in Monte Carlo in 1962. However, Woody Allen chose to use an instrumental version of her song for his movie.
