Potential Breakup Song (Sugiurumn Remix)
Potential Breakup Song (Instrumental)
1. Potential Breakup Song
Well, well, well…what do we have here? Ami Suzuki earlier in the avex days did cover some other disney tracks….(lemme tell you, they were a bit embarassing). Anyway, I really question whoever decided to let Ami cover Aly & A.J.’s biggest song because it came out of left field for many people who followed Amigo for a long time (me). Now unlike the sisters pop/rock lovefest, Ami’s is definitly more chill and flowed really well altogether. The sisters were featured in the song as minor backups and it suited with Ami’s more sultry vocals here. The only real problem I had was with her thin vocals when she was singing ~This is the potential breakup song~ area. Still this was way better than the sis’s version for sure.
2. feel the beat
I was expecting something really hardcore from the B-side, but what I got was a borefest, an 8-minute borefest. I mean don’t get me wrong Sugiurumn did make the song very club-heavy, but what he/they? forgot was the lyrical sense of the song. I mean all of the song it’s Ami saying ~i feel the music, i feel the sound, i feel the beat, beat, be-be-beat~. I mean that doesn’t exactly fill the song up right if you ask me. The arrangement doesn’t change much except when it restarts midway…Still, the chorus (if that’s what it is) is the best part because the ahhh-ing in the background was so eerie and cool. The album version is still better.
3. Potential Breakup Song (Sugiurumn Remix)
Wait, wasn’t Sugiurumn making the last track, so why would he want to remix his own track? WTF! Anyways, it’s definitly long also passing 8 minutes…I actually liked this remix because it’s more completed in a sense. I like how it starts up with it’s calm guitar thing. It seems like Ami’s singing has slowed down a bit for the remix which kind of sucks, but whatever, it sounds they made this remix more ethereal, but with added club beats.
*phew* I’m so finished with Ami’s discography!!!! Anyway, Potential Breakup Song was a very surprising cover and very soon I might add. I actually liked the more house version of Ami’s and even though feel the beat gets shortened for the album release it can be good if you don’t mind long songs. The remix was actually pretty awesome and it was the only remix of the era so I can’t say much beyond that xD
