 初めて寿を体験した時のライヴも沖縄が絡んでいた。2005年5月12日に、今回と同じ会場で開催された戦後60年 沖縄から平和を開くコンサートというもので、今回同様に渋さ知らズ・オーケストラソウル・フラワー・モノノケ・サミットが同じステージに姿を見せている。後者のバンドはすでにこの時点で充分すぎるほど体験していたのに対して、寿は初体験。そのせいなんだろうか、このとき彼らが与えてくれたインパクトが鮮烈な印象を残していくことになる。その後、ソウル・フラワー・モノノケ・サミットのサポートとして寿が姿を見たときにも、正直なところ、圧倒的な迫力を感じさせたのは寿。わずか6曲の演奏にしか過ぎなかったが、寿のパワーに脱帽することになるのだ。その流れで取材、執筆したのが翌年の旧正月に開催された彼らのワンマンをまとめた「寿は幸せを呼ぶ」という原稿だ。

 そして、この日、再び彼らの圧倒的なパワーに感激することになるのだ。なにがそうさせるのか... おそらく、寿の歌はオーディエンスと共に「歌える」ことが理由なんだろう。同じ意志を持ち、同じ気持ちを持つもの同士が、まるで自分たちを確認するように声を上げる... その典型が彼らの十八番ともいうべき、坂本九の名称で知られる「上を向いていこう」の替え歌。作詞家の永六輔からお墨付きをもらっている「前を向いて歩こう」だろう。

「前を向いて歩こう、涙がこぼれてもいいじゃないか... 幸せは雲の上になんてないよ。(中略)ひとりぼっちじゃなかった夜」

 そう、僕らはけっしてひとりじゃない。この日、ここに集まった1300人の人たちが感じていたのはそれであり、だからこそ、ここに集まってきたのだ。そんな気持ちを代弁してくれるのが寿の歌の数々。そして、そこにヴィヴィッドな生命力を与えているのが満面の笑みを浮かべて歌うナビィのヴォーカルだ。それがオーディエンスの気持ちをひとつにして、すさまじいエネルギーを生み出してくれる。わずかな演奏時間ではあっても、会場が異様な盛り上がりを見せるのはそれが理由だろう。ここに収められた写真の数々に写る人々の笑顔がそれを雄弁に物語っている。
