Mmm…and array of words came to mind while watching C~ute’s new pv♥ for the very first time and I’m so so far behind on posts well with Vox closing and moving here to WP was strangely like moving in real~life with so much happening although there was no heavy lifting….um not that I’m capable of lifting anything heavy for that matter :P! I was thinking…..60’s~funky~psychedelic~sexy*~mixed in a progressively modern pot!! C~ute’s “Dance de bakon!” offers not only some of the best choreography but in so many ways it’s also a statement song! There’s a cool retro aura happening here all the while its rock energy and the vocal arrangements of “Dance de bakon!” are not only sassy~sweet but they also lend to an illusion perhaps that rather than C~ute’s mainstay of its front two in Maimichan and Airiin being ever present here, they are now two sets of main front vocals with the trio of Nakki, Chisa and Hagitty holding very much their own~. Chisa in particular has always been overlooked perhaps by many of C~ute’s past vocal arrangements but here she makes the most of her solos~ and you gotta love Hagitty’s still not quite maturing and bit nasal adorable vocal styling~♥ =). The coupling with track “Kore ijou kirawaretakunaino” however does fair in comparison and this single really had the feeling of an A~side being an A~side while the latter while still a good song perhaps suffers here just a bit from having been set beside such a memorable and strong opening “act.”

C~ute’s type A LE includes the “dance shot version” while type B LE includes the “close up version” of the pv♥ and while the “dance shot ver.” is shown in a single take without any editing which I really love!, I still found viewing the original version to be best as the “close up ver.” was standard fare and in the original version you get the very best of it all including even the “”2s 3s Mix Ver.” which appears on their pv DVD single which is actually a very close second~♥! as there’s a wonderful candid energy with C~ute being presented in duet & trio fashion~ っo(*´∀｀)o。Love~love~love! everything about “Dance de bakon!”….visually dynamic, memorable and this is truly seeing C~ute in so much a very different light~ and you can really see the joy and fun the girls had during the filming and in every production stage just knowing that Tsunku has written and produced for them a single that is very special~*.

It’s too bad about the giant~shades……would have loved to have seen just what the producers had in mind =)!
