Snow Halation's melody

"Snow halation" (and on rare occasions referred to as "Todokete") is a song from the Love Live! series and a major meme on the SiIvaGunner channel.

History Edit

"Snow halation" was released as a single on December 22, 2010. It later appeared in the Love Live! anime, in the episode "Melody of the Heart", on June 1, 2014.

It started becoming a soundclown meme in Summer 2015, with Triple-Q's "Style Haleyyytion" being the first mashup, or one of the first. Some other mashup artists also used the song such as MtH and Chaze the Chat.

Triple-Q made his love for "Snow halation" known in the various mashups he would make with it, and he would later join the GiIvaSunner team, although he wasn't the first person to use "Snow halation" in a rip.

Rips Edit

The first rip to feature the song was "Hopes and Dreams - Undertale" by dante, uploaded to the GiIvaSunner channel in February 2016. The song then became frequently used on the channel, rivaling "Meet the Flintstones", and like that meme it quickly became associated with the channel as one of its biggest memes, due to its prior relative obscurity as a meme.

The vocals and the instrumental of "Snow halation" are frequently used as a mashup source, like in "Nuclear (Unused Game Version) - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain" (instrumental) or "Undertale (Unused Version) - Undertale" (vocals). Additionally, the melody is frequently used as a joke in melody changes.

Birthday rips Edit

During Season 1, the Nozomi Tojo's Birthday event started a trend of celebrating the birthday of each member of µ's.[Trivia 1] Each time, there would be a mashup using their solo version of "Snow halation" and another song's vocals. These rips also had a similar visual format: The stage where μ's performs "Snow halation" pans down, and the relevant character appears on the right side.

In Season 2, the rip "Smooth - Guitar Hero II" applied this same idea of a "Snow halation" birthday rip to the meme "Smooth"; the rip is dedicated to Rob Thomas, the singer of "Smooth", and was uploaded on his birthday. The rip also added in animated snow, and has the stage turn orange at the final chorus like it does in the anime. Since this rip, the trend expanded beyond members of µ's, with many channel events (especially those celebrating birthdays or anniversaries) having a dedicated "Snow halation" mashup using the same visual format. Usually, the "Snow halation" mashup is the last or second-to-last rip of the event.

Lore Edit

In the early days of the channel, SiIvaGunner's frequent use of this song led some people to "dislike-bomb" every video featuring it, which became a plot point for the channel's first storyline, SilvaGunner: Rebooted. Since the end of this series, the song's reception has become positive.

Smol Nozomi acts as the figment personification of this meme in The SilvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis.

LyricsEdit

Fushigi da ne ima no kimochi

This feeling, it's strange, isn't it?
It's almost as though it came fluttering down from the sky
The special color of this season fills me with excitement

From the moment we met,
The melody of my heart has been ringing with premonitions
It can’t be stopped, it won’t be stopped -- why?

Ring out
Shall I name this heart-rending pain "Snow halation"?
I can’t wait for our feelings to resonate; it’s frustrating, but it’s a pure-hearted devotion called love
Even in this mild fever, I can’t hesitate
I'll accept the courage to dive in; it's about to start!


Without a sound, nor a sign
Our fate changes silently
At the thought of the coming future, my heartbeat quickens

When you feel troubled
I’ll come running right away, wanting to hug you tightly,
Wherever you are, no matter where, I'll Fly high!

Hurry up
Before I knew it, my true emotions grew too large to contain
It's painful to never do more than dream of it
I want you to be mine!
I don't want to be bewildered by your gentle eyes
Accept all my love for you as it is, Please!


Ring out
Shall I name this heart-rending pain "Snow halation"?
I can’t wait for our feelings to resonate; It’s frustrating, but it’s a pure-hearted devotion called love
Even in this mild fever, I can’t hesitate
I'll accept the courage to dive in; it's about to start!

Don’t you think it’s strange?
These feelings that I’ve gained
fall to my heart as if like snowflakes from the sky.

Showing what could be
A season simple and clear
With new memories we can hold through time.

From when we met I think my heart had been set.
Not sure what could come to be.
Singing my heart’s melody
I can’t stop it yet, not if I try.
So, why?

I’ll reach for you and all the pain that’s new.
I’ll give a name. Something pure and true.
Like “Snow Halation”
Until the day we come to feel the same
I’ll keep it close, all this love
I hold my new sensation.
I can’t keep holding back
Use the strength that I’m hoping to have
Take a leap of faith within my heart.
And this is my start!

Keeping voices low
Not knowing where to go
Fate has a way of making changes with no clues
Thinking what could be and what tomorrow will bring
makes my heart race thinking it’s with you

When on your own, and feeling down and alone,
I will run and hold you tight
Leave my worries far behind
Don’t stay where you are when there’s the sky.
Fly high!

So, hurry on! These feelings won’t take long.
They’ll soon be free and I’ll overflow
With true emotions!
A simple dream won’t satisfy this need to call you mine.
I want you to find
The words unspoken.
You can’t keep holding back
In your eyes, there’s a warmth I could have.
So, just take a leap of faith and see
I’m begging you, please.

I’ll reach for you and all the pain that’s new.
I’ll give a name.
Something pure and true.
Like “Snow Halation”
Until the day we come to feel the same
I’ll keep it close, all this love I hold
My new sensation.
I can’t keep holding back
Use the strength that I’m hoping to have
Take a leap of faith within my heart.
And this is my start!

The alternate English lyrics were written by AmyAnn and TYERecords, whose lyrics were used in the rip "Snow halation - Love Live! School idol paradise"[1]

Trivia Edit

  • The original song's length is 4:20; consequently, most Snow halation rips are also 4:20 long. Many people mistakenly think this is a reference to cannabis culture by the rippers.
  1. Excluding Rin's and Eli's birthdays, which didn't have 2016 channel events, as their birthdays in 2016 fell after the Channel Ending. Hanayo's and Umi's birthdays (which fall before Nozomi's) were celebrated in 2017 as they would normally fall. However Maki's, Rin's, and Eli's birthdays didn't recieve channel events in 2017; their "Snow halation" solo rips were uploaded on the 2017 occurrences of Nozomi's, Nico's, and Kotori's birthdays respectively, explainable in-universe by the theory that Haltmann, the host at the time, didn't care about which girl's birthday it actually was, believing that celebrating idol birthdays is not profitable. However, there was a Maki's Birthday event in 2018.
