TOKYO NIGHT (Instrumental)
1. TOKYO NIGHT
Considering the song was produced by none other than LEO Imai, I knew it was going to be different from previous MiChi songs and it sure does sound different but really good. There’s a lot of synths involved which is cool! I actually could see LEO performing this too but I have to say that MiChi sounds really good in the song! Some of the arrangement does remind me of “JUMP ON IT” but this was actually damn good!
The B-side of the single puts more focus on MiChi’s rocker side but is more towards a ballad to a mid-tempo than “TOKYO NIGHT’s” more danceable style. I’ve noticed also that this is actually kind of reserved of a song unlike most B-sides which is random and different. Though I can say that the interesting thing here is that the song is in English. It’s a bit too long-winded, but this is a B-side I can dig!
The cover song on the single is actually from The Veronicas this time and it actually suits her very well! I kind of like MiChi’s take because it’s so her and she sang the song quite well which is pretty different since her covers in recent times have been alright but nothing spectacular. I’d say it’s her best one yet!
This is her 6th single and I’m wondering when that album will appear! TOKYO NIGHT is definitely her best single since “All about the Girls ~Iijanka Party People~ since all three songs are actually quite good. TOKYO NIGHT was different and executed strongly and she had a good producer in her hands. Revolution is probably her best cover yet…such a perfect song that represents her. December is a bit more relatable but the only fault was that it was a little long-winded. Still GREAT single!
