℃-ute …a long time ago in a queue not so far away….

C-ute Arigatou ~mugen no yell~ & Arashi wo okosunda Exciting Fight! LE singles..So just as C-ute’s new triple A-sided single “Naze Hito wa Arasoundaro? / Summer Wind / Jinsei wa Step!” has arrived in the mail TODAY (really cool when an overseas release arrives on the actual release date)!! …and upon launching my post editing program, I just realized that I totally forgot to post to blog their previous single release which is like a few months old now and was still sitting in queue =O! #brain-hiccup/ #blog-blunder! Well for what it’s worth I’m going to post it here anyway as it probably took me a “day” to create all those months ago =). Such is the life of a scatterbrain =P.

And so until I’ve officially unwrapped the cellophane from C-ute’s actual now NEW single release which I have in hand, here’s their previous double A-side single release “Arigatou ~mugen no yell~” & “Arashi wo okosunda Exciting Fight!” which was released waaaay back last October 28th, and here with both tracks being featured in tribute to Japan’s wrestling athletes, the former as a theme song while the latter represents their cheer song ….this was quite the momentous and memorable C-ute single!! And what’s really really extra~cool is the inclusion of arguably the greatest wrestler of all-time in Yoshida Saori!~! That is her inclusion in C-ute’s music video for the “lead off” song “Arigatou ~mugen no yell~” as the mv has intertwined footage of both the C-ute girls deep into rehearsals as well as wrestlers training their craft …the “second” A-side also following suit in its mv production as well.

Immaculately polished, one certain means of stating C-ute’s rise to the contemporary musical tier, or what I’ve dubbed as their reaching “Pulp Fiction” status with their previous single (will only make “sense” if you’ve seen their previous single posting here =D). And much like Hello! Project’s most vocally talented of artists in Ayaya, C-ute also now feels not unlike an “out of body” experience when considered amongst the entirety of the current H!P family of artists as their musical substance, style and star have far risen beyond any of their fellow stable artists.

Here I went with purchasing Limited Edition single types A and B as each corresponding DVD includes exclusive music videos for each song plus their making of clips.

~C-ute “Arigatou ~mugen no yell~” (mv)~

“Arigatou ~mugen no yell~”, much like its predecessor “Tsugi no Kado wo Magare” is pure contemporary pop perfection~*!~! With an outstanding vocal arrangement, C-ute’s utmost vocal development with each and every member and a sweet array of backing harmonies complementing each girl’s solo riffs ….C-ute is further cementing their place beyond that of idols and cutesy pop. With the concept of PRACTICE, love love!! the MV’s direction here as the contrast between the girl’s white wardrobes against that of a blue sky, as intertwined with the aforementioned wrestling footage and the C-ute girls all deep into their rehearsals ..really  makes for a vibrantly fun and most colorful watch! And while others may try, I’m not sure if anyone seduces the camera quite like Airiin ^^.

Now I definitely feel it
That I’m not alone
Tears from unrewarding efforts
There were days like that

When that happens
You gave me a supportive push on my back
Your love and support always kept me going
And I could believe my future will be great

Thank you, for giving me large chunk of strength
I will do my best without going astray
I’m betting everything on this moment right now
The victory I can take beyond the steep alone

Gazing your back, getting jealous
I was too easy on myself
Hard work will always pay off
You always scolded me saying that

Repeating the same thing everyday
Every time I continue to do so
The anxiety in the back of my heart
Slowly changed into confidence

Thank you, for supporting me to this day
I won’t complain any more
I’ll bet my pride on this moment right now
To be able to cry happily with you

Even if I start to be discouraged
Even if I can’t see tomorrow
Even if someday my heart gets crushed somehow
The eternal yell you gave me will be my guide

The promising sky when I swore to never give up
Will lead me to victory

Thank you, for giving me large chunk of strength
I will do my best without going astray
I’m betting everything on this moment right now
The victory I can take beyond the steep alone

~C-ute “Arashi wo okosunda Exciting Fight!” (mv)~

A completely reproduced and revamped hard rock composition of the 80’s gets new wings as C-ute gets their edge on, not to mention a most aggressively choreographed number to match!! In particular I think Chisato really shines~* here and when I say hard rock I do really mean it’s a head~bangin’~good~time!~! ^^

The sun is always
shining upon us

Living life by challenging obstacles
That’s the only thing we can do
It might not be a smooth sailing life
We can only hear the sound of the wind blowing on our backs

With everything we’ve got
Go straight forward, let’s use all our power
We don’t have time to look back,
let’s go forward
Don’t be afraid! Exciting Fight!

Going up a long slope
We start to see a new view, to the top!
Stay true to our heart, believe in victory so let’s hurry
Make a storm!

Living life by challenging obstacles
That’s the only thing, yes, we can do
If we stretch our arms we can fly
When we really know that we can see everything

Glory and pain
Are waiting for us on the opposite sides of each other
Hold on tight to the doubtful heart,
get stronger!
Don’t be afraid! Exciting Fight!

Speeding up on a steep slope
We’ll find our new selves soon
Hold on to our dreams, one step at a time, feel the wind of future
Make a storm!

“Everything I do, is a battle with myself
it’s nobody else’s fault
because I chose this path”

The sun is always
shining upon us
Go go go, we can’t go near the sun
if we’re weak

Going up a long slope
We start to see a new view, to the top!
Stay true to our heart, believe in victory so let’s hurry
Make a storm!
