With a friend here being turned onto ARASHI recently I thought it a perfect time to reminisce with a few older postings from over the past few years here @ WP ^^.
Monday January 23rd, a seemingly normal day…back to the grind of work and yet being awaken @ 1:06 a.m. by the chiming of an e~mail would prove otherwise. And while I’m naturally an early riser (work demands I be xD) there’s nothing like getting your heartbeat racing @ such an hour via the rush to get your hands on an upcoming ARASHI♥ new release single～＊ (・д・`*)！！！、you see w/ the extreme time difference from Japan to Hawaii as they’re nearly a day ahead there I tend to always get their notifications during this witching hour when normally one should be fast asleep ( 」´０｀)」Zzzzzz…..！And as with scandals and taxes some things never seem to change =P~ including the mad dash an ARASHI♥ fan must delve into in those precious few minutes one has to obtain by pre~order ARAHI♥’s coveted LE versions~. After the dizzying extra early morning affair has been met with sleepy eyes & mind I sometimes ponder on why there can’t be more LE’s available? The simple answer of course is that this is exactly what makes it a ‘LE’ =P in the first place but with more fans and an ever~growing fanbase~♥ to reach it begs the question time and time again for the single case of ARASHI♥~. You see a local retailer here sells what they’re calling ‘Limited Edition’ strawberries in this pretty red & black box and while its season should be only during the second half of our annual calendar they’re not just available right now but have been without absence going back to last December so what gives? And now more and more I’m thinking the ‘LE’ label on those strawberries are merrily a marketing tactic which entices strawberries & cream lovers island wide to feel a sense of urgency =O like @ some hour of some day they’ll surely run out and then you’d have to eat your cream all by its lonesome =(. Now if only those LE ARASHI♥ singles~* could be made available for much longer in the spirit of these LE strawberries I think the satiated female fan~base would that much more content~….oh and there’d be much less panic too to go along with it Σ(゜ロ゜;ノ)ノ！。。。 whenever the pre~order word goes out @ whatever time of day or night you tend to receive them~ =)♥.
Okay now that I’ve foolishly mixed ARASHI♥ w/ fresh produce it’s time to listen…gaze…occasionally drool and just plain fall~in~♥ w/ the mix of sultry~ballad, poppy yearning and sweet reminisce in the coupling with tracks “How can I Love”, “Tsuite oide” and “Futari no katachi” respectfully~. And while ARASHI♥ never fails to produce an array of emotions and music genres in each release~* “Wild at Heart” is truly center stage here w/ all of the pv♥ smoldering hotness and visuals one could wish for to go along w/ it ………(゜∀゜)………。！！！
Behold the raw~rockin’ intro consumed seamlessly into a sea of sexy~hot funk all covered in layer after layer of walled harmonies set upon an ensemble arranged palate~.
~ARASHI “Wild at Heart” (pv)~
Masterful film editing and we haven’t even gotten to the LE’s gorgeous 16 page booklet!
All enjoy, the men in black!
oh and in glittery color too…!
