3. Tsukiatteru no ni Kataomoi (Instrumental)
Tsukiatteru no ni Kataomoi begins with some heavy beats and some VERY pop sounding instrumentals. The verses are sweet and hyper sounding, with nice. happy vocals from the girls. The bridge to the chorus is nice, but the chorus is where the song shines. The song might sound a little like generic pop at first but after a few listens it become quite enjoyable, although I though the instrumental was a bit too heavy.
Whats this! A good b-side?! Warera! Berryz Kamen actually gives of the feeling of the girls being some kinds of spies(Kamen really) so it has that type of movie sounding instrumental with the H!P brass and pop flair. It actually sounds really great, as do the girl’s vocals(which tend to sound kind of silly at times, there’s even one of the member’s doing an evil laugh after the instrumental break) and has a great melody to pump you up. It’s really one of the better b-sides released recently and will probably be that way for a while.
Tsukiatteru no ni Kataomoi was a great single from Berryz Kobo. The a-side was an above average typical H!P pop sound that was well executed but where the single really shines is the b-side. It’s really quite a rare song from H!P so I suggest giving that a listen.
