SPEED’s latest single “Let’s Heat Up!” is promoting Aeon’s retail line of ladies Winter fashion for 2010. “Let’s Heat Up!” features some great phrasing in its verses as Eriko~chan and Hiro pretty much represent the title track with minimal back~up from the other girls and there’s definitely a Christmas~sy type of feel to it and it may just be those bouncy keyboard notes doing the charm~*. The pv♥ was shot pretty simply and especially when you consider that it’s an Avex production but what’s really fun about this pv is that in much of it the girls were allowed to ad~lib in their own spontaneous camera time and when coupled with their always so awesome dance choreographed parts the two give the feeling of a most stylish and yet festive atmosphere~.
It took me a little while to realize that the coupling with track’s ”カルア”．．was “kahlua” as in kahlua milk :P! While I do like the natural flavor of coffee I don’t have much of it or at least not regularly and I used to know this guy who would literally drink coffee all~day~long as from the morning time at work he would be beginning his “coffee ritual” as we called it and even as 4 pm was nearing he was still going to get more coffee and he drank it all dark with no cream or sugar ever! Somehow I think the caffeine had lost its power on him having minimal effect although he was always lol wide awake and very genki* to say the least…(^q^)! If someone pumped that much coffee into me (…as I would never drink that much as it would need to be infused somehow into me :P) I most likely would get nauseous, get a head~ache or “reverse” things* in a very un~pretty way (*>ω<)！！Sorry didn’t mean to gross you out, but anyway “Kahlua Milk” in contrast to the title track has much more of an r&b feel to it and some very dreamy~* keyboards which have a floating effect throughout the song~.
