1. A Happy Life
Guessing from the title, I kind of knew this song was going to be a feel-good song and with the whole arrangement, I was definitely behind the feel of it. Now Megumi’s vocals have always been hit or miss (partly because of her seiyuu status). It kind of shows itself a bit here, but it’s not caked on too much, but maybe trying to be a little cuter would’ve worked maybe? I don’t know, but this song is an interesting happy song.
2. Lucky & Happy
I kind of thought the B-side of the single was going to be just as peppy and in some cases it is, but the instrumentation is a little bit lighter than “A Happy Life”. The song also is a tad slower as well, but I don’t think this song really missed a step…until the chorus where it’s like the chorus is just a little off for me. Cute yes, but did we need to hear it like that?
While A Happy Life is a part of the “CHOICE” era, it was released two months prior to “Plain” (album before “CHOICE”) . Also this single was released in 2007, so you know how stretched out this era has been. Both songs capture cute in a nice way and Megumi wasn’t trying to hard to be immensingly cute, but Lucky & Happy kind of failed that way lol.
