ARASHI Fukkatsu LOVE LE & RE singlesJust released on February 24th, ARASHI’s~♡ now 48th!! single “Fukkatsu LOVE” is simply a contemporary pop masterpiece and when you consider whom penned its lyrics & music it’s no surprise at all as the highly accomplished wife and hubby team of Takeuchi Mariya and Yamashita Tatsuro did just that respectfully!! As per usual this single is available in two versions, both of which hold their fair share of exclusives with the RE including three non LE coupling with tracks while the LE comes with its own exclusive song and an additional DVD which contains the title track’s music video, a “roundtable” discussion with the guys as well as an extensive making of clip… all of which run approximately one hour in length.

In addition, aesthetically both versions shine in the eye~candy category as each feature GORGEOUS photography of the guys!!!!

If you’re thinking that the guy starring (outside of ARASHI) in this video looks mighty familiar, he’s actually also a part of the Johnny’s empire… he being none other than Ikuta Toma! ARASHI are at their sexiest and finest here with an intricate and sleek dance choreography and you really gotta love the camera eye’s visual transitions between the guys as they take turns with their verse solos throughout! Remember to watch, relish and repeat as necessary~!~! ^^

Here I’ve edited out the DVD’s finale which is a pretty extensive and very fun and visually entertaining making of clip! Behind the scenes rehearsals, commentary and an overall look into the shooting of the awesome music video.

ARASHI Ai wo sakebe LE & RE singles

And for the second single of today’s double-feature, it wasn’t too long ago that ARASHI yet again reminded me of just how awesome their previous single “Ai wo sakebe” truly is!!!… as at this past Kouhaku Utagassen they made a special medley out of it!

Once again to receive all of the songs and visual goodies you’ll  need to purchase both limited and regular editions of this single and it’s really worth it when you consider the number of exclusive songs the RE presents along with of course the music video and additional visuals that the LE’s exclusive DVD provides.

The jacket lays out pretty long so it didn’t quite fit onto the surface of my scanner but alas there’s Nino~♡ just below ^^*!!

I really love some of the retro~styling here as there’s a bit of classic 50’s meshes with Grease meets modern day! I mean give Matsujun~♡ a bike and he could be channeling the second coming of the Fonz “Ayyyyyy!…” or something =P! And I must say although I’ve been partial to Nino~♡ for quite some time now, my original ARASHI crush Matsujun~♡ is looking mighty gorgeous here!!!

~ARASHI~♡ “Ai wo sakebe” (mv)~

Love that Maroon 5 “Sugar” music video? I mean both song and mv are most awesome!!!!! Now take the guys of ARASHI as they do a bit of wedding reception surprise~* crashing of their very own!! (sigh*) Now nobody does wedding songs quite like ARASHI does and here with a glorious 50’s vibe an all to it… “Ai wo sakebe” is one of those very special songs which inevitably tug at those heartstrings relentlessly!~!! I mean the verse portions are nearly more delicious than the chorus itself! And if this immediately infectious melody which is both delectably cute and sweet doesn’t move you… I’m afraid I cannot help you =P!

Now if only we could all get ARASHI to crash our weddings!! =D

And it goes without question that ARASHI’s “Ai wo sakebe”

receive thy “coveted”:

Maochan's Music Seal of Approval

~Maochan♥ music seal of approval~!!!!!!!!!!!

What’s fun during the making of clip is the all access inclusion of not only dance rehearsals and the MV’s shooting… but also being witness to see the groom and the groom’s men rehearsing before ARASHI makes their surprise appearance at the wedding’s reception! TRULY one of ARASHI’s most fun, stylish and catchy of songs along with one of their most MEMORABLE music videos as of yet \(^o^)/!!!~!!!

    • Ohhhh and I still can’t get “Ai wo sakebe” out of my head! 50’s with even a bit of sixties inspiration here and after the umteenth listen I believe they may have been even channeling the Beach Boys with those awesome harmonies! LOL my Dad inspired me with lots of music and my palates been wide open ever since! =)

      ps Adam Levine’s got nothing on the ARASHI boys!!!!! Never imagined they’d crash a wedding too~!~!

    • Gazing~♥ at all of the guy’s single jacket scans here where they appear to be deep in thought, I’ve realized what they’re pondering in these moments of photographic bliss….. the thought of “why am I so feakin’ hot??!!!…” Just saying =).
