I’m as happy as a schoolgirl again !
I am all agog … like I’m on eggnog …
… and also very happy with my Watarirouka Hashiritai farewell concert DVDs I have been watching. Then yesterday I finally received by double-CD “best of Watarirouka Hashiritai ” album from Japan! It has all the hits, plus some of the solo singles the members made while in the group. Of course most of those are by Mayu Watanabe.
It reminds me why they were always my favorite sub-unit of AKB48 (see link). The songs are so sweet, fun and cute. I loved listening to it in the car today. It makes my daily commute through all the bad neighborhoods* I have to drive through so much more enjoyable!
One thing though: I probably have never purchased a record that is this high-pitched and squeaky — at least not since I had “The Chipmunks” back when I was in second grade.
This example is pretty squeaky — PRETTY and SQUEAKY!
Got me thinking, you know, the WH7 DO do sound a little bit like “The Chipettes”.
Perhaps in the studio, it went something like this:
Akimoto-san: “Sounds great girls, but Mayu – you were a little flat”
Mayu: (not paying attention)
Akimoto-san: “Mayu …”
Mayu: (looking off into distance)
Akimoto-san: (irritated) Mayu!
Mayu: (still not listening)
Mayu: Hai !
Ha Ha. … No.
I love them.
* Get out of the way you alcoholics — I have Mayuyu : )
