If the return of Tommy Heavenly6 wasn’t big enough, we now get the return of Tommy February6! As many Tommy fans know, she completely stopped releasing singles as February6 to focus on her Heavenly6 persona more. Her last release as Tommy February6 was Lonely in Gorgeous. Which was released in November of 2005.
Well Tommy February is back with a new song Strawberry Cream Soda Pop. This song is being released on her best of album Strawberry Cream Soda Pop Daydream. So I’m not sure if this is being released as just a single as well.
The song is exactly what you’d expect from Tommy February6. The music is very simialr to all her other February6. It honestly reminds me of a mix between Love is Forever and Blooming. Which isn’t really a good thing. The song is slow and simple like most of her songs. But this time it’s really not doing anything for me. It’s so similar to her other songs that is seems almost unoriginal. And just when you think it’s going to pick up it doesn’t. The music gets higher and her voice sounds the same. And this time it’s not even catchy. The song sounds good for about 3 lines when she sings Tommy Heavenly6 like. But in a flash it’s back to the cutseyness. Which is usually fine for me.
The video is the same as every other video. Except this time with a lower budget. She shoves her normal video clutter into a plain white room. Which makes it look a little tacky. But this video has a theme, and that’s displaying her two personas. Bot Tommy Heavenly6 and Tommy Feburary6 get their own separate rooms. Which is kind of cool. But I personally liked when she concreted her two persona videos together. Like she did with Love is Forever and Wait Till I Can Dream.
I think what really annoys me about this song and video is she’s too old to have the cutesy child like image of Tommy February6. I mean she’s in her 30’s. I personally think it’s too old to have that cutesy fun feeling. Tommy Heavenly6 and The Brilliant Green have a more mature and rockish theme. Which is what really works with her and what she should be doing full time. And if she is going to keep this persona going again, at least make a good song. Where’s her Blooming type of song and video? I miss that. Tommy Feburary6 was buried away a few years ago. Try to keep it that way.
