»» I can't help but love Morning Musume
As everyone probably already knows by now, the new Morning Musume PV and song kind of leaked yesterday. The new song is called Shouganai Yume Oibito
(People can't help but chase dreams). Here's the cover:
I feel bad for LinLin and JunJun, 'cause while everyone else looks absolutely stunning, they look weird and kind of left out. Man, just look at Aika. Her fake hair is really working well for her. Ai looks amazing with her hair behind her ear, Risa looks like a hot mom, Eri looks cute, Sayu always looks good, and Koharu looks a bit old-fashioned, but awesome. LinLin, however, looks like she's 32, and JunJun's nose is all over the place, probably because of these bangs.
I can't say I don't like the cover, I think it's very good, and that they're really trying with this. But just wait 'til you listen to the song! Here's a preview, in case you haven't heard it yet.
Shouganai Yume Oibito sounds like they put some serious thinking into making it. The instrumental is not the best thing since sliced bread, but it's definitely very fresh with all the guitar and violin solos. The melody is really catchy, you can't help but sing along. It's definitely a very strong vocal track, everyone is sounding good, and the harmonizing is very well done. Also, everyone sings in it (though there isn't enough Aika. Very far from enough.), which is always good. The song alone would have made this an awesome single. But just wait 'til you watch the video! No links yet.
Get ready for some serious pic spamming.
Apparently, the main concept is 'Morning Musume reading books'
JunLin always have so much fun when it's just the two of them :)
Sayu looking as beautiful as usual.
Aika's acting has gotten better.
JunJun looking amazing.
What's upsetting you, darlin'?
Reina also looked gorgeous. She didn't really stand out, though.
LinLin looks good. They really owed her this, after that Naichau Kamo outfit.
Morning Musume after class. Maybe this is why they were reading. They had a school test.
Koharu grabs her crotch.
Aika looks so gorgeous her head hurts.
Risa looks a lot like Frida from ABBA.
Aika studies a bit more.
JunJun finally got it. It was so simple she started laughing.
These bangs win.
Ai wonders how many copies this is going to sell.
Koharu is also in it. Looking gorgeous, I must admit.
Ok, one thing I know, she has never looked prettier than this.
Now that is the face you should have pulled in Naichau Kamo!
As you can see, they all look amazing. The PV is simple, yet effective, really catching your eye. The Dance Shot features the same outfits they're wearing in the cover, which is nice.
I don't know if you've seen the new Buono! PV, MY BOY, but it is also awesome. I think that now that the Elders are gone, UFA is really trying to get things right with H!P. The Buono! PV was absolutely awesome, seemed to have quite a decent budget, and this new MM PV is very well done, and is really going to catch the eye of the Japanese public. Maybe it's time for H!P to rise from their ashes? Let's wait and see. The single comes out on May 13th. Everyone should order one.
