I'd love♥ to make a full wall sized poster of this image above~!!….must stop daydreaming ne~ (￣▽￣)！
Tackey continues his string of solo releases with his third single "Hikari Hitotsu" which serves as the theme song for the t.v. drama "Orthros no inu" which also stars Tackey~…and in true Johnny's fashion there are not one but three versions available for fans to desire~!
I ended up choosing jacket A as it includes the original pv version for the title track w/ making of footage on an extra DVD~ and jacket B as it in addition to the two tracks found on jackets A & B, it also includes an additional bonus track as well as karaoke versions for all three songs♪♪～. Jacket type B includes a drama version of the pv but I needed to hold myself back and just get two versions although I really did want jacket B as well…(u_u*)!
An extra surprise was the sheet of Tackey Ranger stickers which were included with his jacket C single to go along perfectly with the bonus track "Ai no senshi TAKI ranger"…..not really sure of what the meaning behind this helmet is but they're still *cute*!! (*´∀｀*)。
While I haven't watched the drama "Orthros no inu" the synopsis has a really dark and dramatic story with a large twist of fate~ where Tackey's character is the devil who possesses the God like ability to be able to heal with just his touch~…while Nishikido Ryo is cast as an Angel however his touch is able to kill a person~. Quite a twist ne~!…and the two are said to meet in a fatal battle~! (・д・`*)！！
Like this drama's storyline…."Hikari Hitotsu" will envelope you in a dramatic symphonic wall of sound~ as cascading piano lines hover along with a deep and dark orchestration which fully engulfs the listener~. I've always been quite fascinated with Tackey's voice as when I see him on television shows or in MCs or dramas…his voice is actually quite low and deep, but when he sings♪♪～ his vocals are more of a higher pitch and somewhat *cutely* nasal~! ＾ ＾！The pv is really so well shot with some really great mirror and lighting effects and I just ♥ Tackey's hair at this length. ＾ ＾
The coupling with track "warui otoko" is very brassy samba-ish~jazzy~….with a sweet Brazilian flavor and it has a really rather *adorable* melody….definitely a much more light hearted song that the title track and one that I think may give you the urge to dance~…with a loved one? o(*´∀｀)o゛♥
If you opted for the jacket C release then you'll then hear a most lively and fun composition in "ai no senshi TAKI ranger!" Hmm…if Berryz Koubou can have a super hero song then surely Tackey♥ can too ne~ ＼(^o^)／☆。。。complete with intro and mid narrations and a driving orchestration that will make you *dream* of the masked one….well they usually are masked ne~?…(^q^) Although in Tackey's case I think he really can do without being masked…would most likely generate more sales too if they were to create a Tackey ranger action figure ne~ (。ーωー。) ♪♪～♪♪～♪♪～。。。
..and these are from the making of footage…..
