Koi no Seesaw Game (Undergirls)
Heavy Rotation off vocal ver.
Koi no Seesaw Game off vocal ver.
Yasai Sisters off vocal ver.
1. Heavy Rotation
For a song that has a rather cool title, I wasn’t expecting Heavy Rotation to be another summer-type song. Fortunately it beats the hell outta “Ponytail to Chouchou” because it’s consistent and not annoying (even though the PV is just something else). Now I won’t comment on vocals just simply because there’s so many vocalists in the song, but it’s definitely has a cute side to it and even though there’s no real harmonization involved until the middle of the song…but still it’s an idol song haha albeit a good one!
2. Koi no Seesaw Game
Can someone explain what’s the point of “Undergirls”? I mean it’s not a sub-group and yet they have many songs under this name. Anywho, Koi no Seesaw Game is definitely a nice change of pace after the exciting “Heavy Rotation”. It also seems that there’s a bit more harmonization going on (but that could be that there’s less girls singing). I don’t know why, but I ended up enjoying the rather fun and upbeat song that this song gives out. I know it’s in a certain style, but, there’s just something darn catchy!
3. Yasai Sisters
There’s a limit to when cute can become a little too much and Yasai Sisters might be that song to just cross the line. I mean the arrangement is even childish and yet kind of interesting since it’s got brass and some kiddie-like genki parts which sort of was odd. I don’t know but I’m happy this wasn’t the A-side.
4. Lucky Seven
For me, Lucky Seven kind of falls into the same category with “Yasai Sisters” but it seems slightly better because it has a disco-theme (in idol standards that is). I mean once again I’m finding myself being pulled into the fun atmosphere and it’s definitely something I want more of!
After coming off that very disappointing single that was “Ponytail to Chouchou”, Heavy Rotation is pretty much an upgrade after that. Other than Yasai Sisters, all three tracks are idol songs at their finest. I mean it’s not perfect and Heavy Rotation is certainly no “Sakura no Shiori” which makes me long for another one. Still, good single overall and shows they can fix problems up nicely.
