Recently a radio rip for C-ute’s upcoming new single, Kimi wa Jitensha Watashi wa Denwa de Kitaku, was released.
When I first heard this song and saw that it was a ballad I was a little disappointed. I’m sure everyone is well aware by now, that I don’t really like ballads. I’d honestly prefer to idols to make hyperactive, energetic, upbeat songs 24/7. Which is obviously not possible. And because of that I was initially disappointed by the song. But only initially. Once I started to really listen to the song and listened to it a few times I really started to like it. I actually do appreciate who it is a break from their recent upbeat singles. The sound is very soft and soothing. It really is a refreshing song. I also appreciate that this song is any old ballad with bland music. No, instead the music is the best part of this song for me. I love that it’s a soft rock song. You know, something you’d hear on the Monster Ballads compilation album. The song really does have that 80’s rock ballad sound. And I absolutely love that about this song.
