KYAAAAAAAAAAAA~~~ JOURNEY = ♥ ♥ ♥
After subbing Taiyou wa shizumanai for 2 days straight, I can memorise every single scene of episode 1 now lol~ and this song just came at the right time! :D This version sounds sooo much better than the one 7 years ago~ Takki’s voice has matured so much~ but the singing style still remains~~ which is excellent! Ah, actually I love Journey since watching Taiyou wa shizumanai x years ago :D So glad I finally have a CD version of it to keep (and to listen on repeat mode…)!
Anyway, I left as early as I could yesterday, at 5.45pm, carried that box, took a bus in the rain, and when I got back, first thing I did was to get a scissors to rip open the box… Then slowly pulled out the neat bubbled-wrap pack of 6 albums! – 3 are shuduck’s, 3 are mine!
Started with the Blue one.
Watched the entire DVD, yes, even those PVs that I’ve watched numerous times before.. Then went on to the 5th Anniversary special video. I expected a 5min montage thingie but I was soooo wrong! It was 32mins long I think, and it’s like a documentary styled video with an interview at the end. Was wishing for more new and unseen footage to appear… and off-hand, these are some bits I didn’t see before:
- T&T sing Sotsugyou at a high school graduation
- YumeMo PV filming~
- Channel@ interview (can’t remember if I saw these questions before)
- Serenade PV filming (Takki trying the dance moves with his flower stick, failing and laughing at himself? ^^ Was this in the other DVD before?)
- Kamen performance at some Mask event
- Roppongi Hills event (Venus, Ho!Summer and Kakko Tsukanai Tonight – saw a bit of this at the FC before~)
- Damecon’s Aishiteru Ze T&T (I firmly believe the Damecon DVD will be released soon hehehee)…
AND OF COURSE, THE INTERVIEW!!!!!!! ***KYAAAAAA**** Takki looks sooooooo gorgeous!! I was like staring at his hair, his smile, his body, his legs.. and those little actions he did — touch his hair, hold his shirt together, pull his pants? *LOL*
On to the Red one.
Actually I opened the Green one before the Red one, but I decided to listen to the Red one first, coz erm, the Red one only had one new song in it… I looked at the BOOKLET first… Then back to the song.. yes, yes, Daydreamer! It’s a song that I think everyone will think it’s nice! Or rather, no one will say that it’s “not nice”? Hmm, it’s a very relaxing kind of song, with Tsubasa singing the entire first verse of the song, then Takki singing the entire second verse of the song… I know they do that for some songs too, but their solo voices are very evident in this one!!
Then finally, the Green one.
They say, we leave the best for the last~ Sou sou, my heart was *ドキドキ* when I put in the GREEN Disc 2, and started listening with my headphones… WOW!!! I LOVE ALL THE JUNIOR JIDAI SONGS!!!
#1 Real DX – all T&T fans will like this song lol.
#2 Words of Love – lyrics are partly written by Takki ^^ I always thought the words (i.e. lyrics of love) are addictive, since the first time I heard it in Hatachicon DVD. The arrangement and everything was how I imagined it to be, and it isn’t very much different from the versions we’ve heard during concerts i.e. his voice still sounds husky when he sings those certain words hehehehe ~~ :)
#3 AXEL – Probably my favourite Tsubasa solo in this CD.
#4 JOURNEY – *KYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA* Sorry, sorry, but I couldn’t control my fingers hahahaaa~ Masaki Nao!! :) I think this is my favourite song of this CD!!! Blame it on the timing, and everything ^^ I still remember when Takki, Tsubasa, and 4tops (was it?) sang this during the 2001 con… Although their voices then were not as polished, it still sounded nice.. and I remember, when I first heard this song in Taiyou wa shizumanai, I thought it was “Mr. Children” who sang it, coz Takki’s voice sounded like that last time? *ROFL*
#5 DO ME CRAZY – Tsubasa sounds so much better than when he sang this last time (in Hatachicon, or in performances etc). His voice definitely changed the most…
#6 KAMIRA TAMARA – I LOVE THIS SONG!! Favourite unit song of the CD!! Loved it since watching Hatachicon, Harucon, and all other cons lol~ I do miss the SLOW bridge/interlude part though, like I told Bonnie few days ago. Kinda wish they included that… but it’s still really catchy without it :D
#7 Koi Yo – Love this song! Tsubasa’s voice sounds so different. Compare this to the SC performance in 2001!! LOL… Though I’m so used to the Yokohamacon version, I think it’s only a matter of time I get used to this one! It’s slightly different… Oh, and I din know that that was an ENGRISH word!!
#8 Kimugare JET – Bwahahahahaha!! I still find this song really funny, especially the ENGRISH words! BUT… it’s so cute, the starting “ittekimasssuuu” or something like that.. I can’t listen to it now in office, but I just thought the tune sounds REALLY weird at first, then after listening to it more, it starts to become really catchy.
#9 Nagareboshi – I like this version much more than 23to24’s.
#10 Aishiteru Ze T&T – BWAHAHAHAHA!! Quite fun to hear this as a “SONG”. Takki… he just makes me laugh!! I REALLY *LOL* when Takki sang “KOI NO HANA~~~” hahahaha… Totally NOT what I expected kekekeke….
