While I've often felt so badly in the final few years of Melon Kinenbi's H!P tenure as their releases had become so far and few between, what remains is quite simply a body of work which stands as one of the more powerful and memorable for H!P including some of Tsunku's best of song♪ writing for sure!, especially in their earlier years~.
Yesterday a most sad and really unexpected PM arrived from Charmy☆Risuzu~*…unexpected as Melon Kinenbi just released a new album four days ago and in light of their impending break~up its title now is most ironic to say the least…"Melon is not dead." (+_+) I pre~ordered their album immediately upon receiving Cdjapan's artist news mail and now as I wait for it to arrive I can't help but feel a bit of emptiness with this announcement~ (+_+)。
While there would be so many Melon Kinenbi releases and memories to be thankful♥ for, in fear of scaring anyone away by going on and on as I sometimes do (._.;), here I've narrowed them down to my most favorite 8♥.
~Thank♥you for "This is unmei"…a pure~* masterpiece in J~Pop for its originality X 10 and a ferocious chorus also X 10, thank♥you for "Akai Freesia"…so uplifting and catchy~* on any given day no matter what my mood was and for many years this remained as my most favorite of MK songs♪, thank♥you for "MI DA RA Matenrou"…for your stomping flamenco even before there was "Iroppoi Jirettai", thank♥you for "Kawaii Kare" for showing us how to rock a dance track's choreography and for your infectious rhythms, thank♥you for "Onegai miwaku no target" my most favorite♥♥♥ MK song♪ all~time for your power to rock an arena and engage an audience even from an ocean apart~,thank♥you for giving us quite possibly the strangest pv and single cover in Hello!Project history~*!!!!!, thank♥you for Shibata "Bunny" Ayumi my most favorite melon♥ and for your cutest~* of smiles (￣▽￣)＊….and lastly but definitely not least, thank♥you Melon Kinenbi for capturing and moving me with your music, style and energy~* ＾ ＾！
