What does ‘Yesterday Once More’ mean? In the original version by John Bettis, we can see it as ‘Yesterday, Once More, ’ but now the title ‘Yesterday Once More’ is known well. Therefore, we show that we can interprete this as an adverbial phrase, a noun phrase (Yesterday as a subject and as an object), and Yesterday as a vocative. As a result, ‘Yesterday Once More’ may be better than ‘Yesterday, Once More’ because the former makes us imply various kinds of interpretations.We also show that sha-la-la-la, wo-o-wo-o and shing-a-ling-a-ling are the introduction of some hit songs before the publication of ‘Yesterday Once More’ (1973).As for “It's yesterday once more” we can find twice, we cannot understand its true meaning until we interprete them as “It's yesterday that I lost my love once more” and “It's the song ‘Yesterday Once More.’”

This is a monograph on steelpan history in Japan for the past thirty years. Steelpan, a melodious percussion instrument made from oil-drums, was invented and developed in Trinidad and Tobago. Study of musical instruments within a traditional ethnomusicological approach aims to clarify the society where a particular instrument is invented and developed. However, with new directions in the study of musical instruments, this article aims to clarify the society where an instrument is accepted and diffused, paying particular attention to the phenomenon of displacement. Considering the World Music Boom to be a border between different periods, the author divides the history into “Period of Professionals (about 1970-1989)” and “Period of Amateurs (after 1990).” On this basis, the Japanese use of steelpan is discussed in terms of the social frameworks, images and technologies that exist.
