The radio rip for Tegomass’s 5th single, Aoi Bench, has just been released. Apparently the song is a cover a song by Sasuke. But I have never heard of the song until now. This song immediately remind me of Puffy AmiYumi’s song Red Swing. Red Swing, Blue Bench, you can see why it reminded me. XD
I am completely disappointed by the fact that the song sounds exactly the same. Why make a cover if you’re going to make it sound exactly like the original? I dread hearing Watarirouka Hashiritai 7’s new cover single now. :/
The original song was really bluesy and country sounding and so is Tegomass’s. It seems like they’ve been doing a lot of slow paced songs lately. This song literally sounds musically like Tanabata Matsuri but sung like Moshimo, Kono Sekai Kara OO ga Nakunattara. But looking back all of their singles were slow paced, ballad type songs but I just never noticed. The song sounds good but after listening to the original their voices don’t really fit it too well. They are just too cute sounding.
But besides that I absolutely love the song. The lyrics are so beautiful and heartbreaking. They completely pull on the heart strings. The same sappy love songs Tegomass always releases.
Here’s the radio rip:
But here’s the original with subs, just because the song is great:
