Tsunku continues to compose♪♪～ such gems* for the H!P Eggs~! and following up their most awesome/catchy debut "aMa no Jaku" S/mileage has once again released such a well written, produced and performed single~.
Tsunku's 60's inspiration was running very high while he wrote "Asuwa date nano ni, imasugu koega kikitai" which means….asu (morning)…nano ni (has more than one usage but here it means "in spite of" or "even though")…..imasugu (right away, as soon as possible)….koe (voice)….and kikitai (want to hear; kiku is the stem form which means to listen;hear;ask)…which when put together has a meaning like…."Although we have a date tomorrow, (I) want to hear your voice right away…(or sooner)." And I think we've all experienced this *feeling* so much as even though we know we're going to see our loved♥ one very soon it's just not soon enough~. ＾ ＾
From dueling organ pitches and harpsichord (I just so love that distinct *plucked* sound that the harpsichord produces as its strings aren't struck as with a piano….and if you've seen the inside of a harpsichord it's really a fascinating instrument with an ingenious design) "Asu wa date nano ni, imasugu koega kikitai" is pure 60's love♥~ o(*´∀｀)o゛and in some ways it can be envisioned as Bach meets~ The Beatles as there's a very Baroque era theme hovering over all of the twinkling psychedelic keyboard riffs which stream beside a most Paul McCartney like bouncy bassline assault~. And all of the Eggs sound so polished here and particularly in their ensemble vocals~….much of this song is very very reminiscent of the works in which Tsunku used to write for one of H!P's most beloved groups…Tanpopo♥~. They too were very much 60's inspired and when Tsunku's not busy composing the sounds of "pure" J-Pop untouched by Western or any other influences, I think here in this very genre of style he's so much at his very best~!! There's also a lot of very *cute* touches which seem to simulate those sounds of classic video games~ and they can be heard oh so clearly throughout although while listening to the karaoke version so much of this song's little *charms* can be so much better appreciated….so just in case you'd love to sing (*´∀｀*)♪♪～。。。along I've included the karaoke version just below~. I'm so in love♥ with this single~!! ＾ ＾
The jacket photography and art direction actually do reflect so much in the classical sounds heard in this single~ and here all four Eggs look so *adorable* in their outfits as classic meets with a modern twist~♥!
