Buono! – Renai Rider LE and Single V

4 04 2009

Well, I don’t exactly buy things that are new releases……….. XD I buy things that I want. And I’ve wanted Renai Rider for quite a while.

LE Single

LE Single

I found Renai Rider through YouTube (… If I remember right it was a dance cover by….. ummm, maybe LunaCherry? Well, it wasn’t the PV for some reason T_T…) So when it came to my next order it was the first item on the list XD But that didn’t mean much…… YesAsia came back and said the previously available LE version they advertised was now out of print and cancelled it. So I went to JapanCD over at eBay and bought it instead XD I’ve included links to the Regular Edition and the Single V at the bottom of my post….. as well as a link to eBay for the LE, figured you might get lucky ๐Ÿ˜€ The Limited Edition single comes with a DVD that has footage from a FC performance of Honto no Jibun and it’s brilliant~!

I’ve decided to try something different. I’ve found a place to stream mp3’s (… thank you Mars ๐Ÿ˜€ ….. and Bryan ๐Ÿ˜€ …) and so have uploaded the B-Side of Renei Rider and the instrumental of Renai Rider – The two tracks that intrigued me.

The B-Side is Janakya Mottainai! (ใ˜ใ‚ƒใชใใ‚ƒใ‚‚ใฃใŸใ„ใชใ„ใฃ!) and is superb~! It’s upbeat, as usual XD and works well with their voices harmonies. It’s definetely different in some instances with the layering of the three voices, but it just works. Momo for me has the most unique voice in this one – Miya and Airi are awesome as well, but Momo stands out for me. Well, have a listen and enjoy.

Janakya Mottainai!

I’ve never liked to listen to the instrumentals of the songs. Don’t know why, but I don’t find myself listening to them…… I skip to the next single when they come up XD But the Renai Rider instrumental made me pull up short. It has a mixture of different samples and instruments that it makes it worth a listen…. even if it’s only once. You get to hear the backing vocals and the little parts that are under the girls voices. I think there’s even a piano accordion in there XD You get to appreciate the amount of work that goes into producing a song like this, and it mustn’t be easy.

Renai Rider – Instrumental

Now, I haven’t included Renai Rider because I figure you can just go onto YouTube and listen/watch it, or scroll down and watch the one I embedded ๐Ÿ˜€ It doesn’t mean I don’t like it or anything (… in fact I pretty much love the song …) It’s such a good, fast paced song. And it get’s in your head and doesn’t want to leave…. which can be a bad thing when you’re humming it at work and the customers are looking at you funny. I’m actually thinking of suggesting that we go and buy some J-pop to add to our CD collection for the borrowers (… work at a library if you don’t know …) I just got them to get a bunch of anime and manga, so it mightn’t be all that difficult to twist their arms ๐Ÿ˜€ So, as I was saying before getting distracted, Renai Rider is a pefect song ๐Ÿ˜€

Single V

Single V

The Single V is a must for me whenever I get a single…. It’s an OCD thing, OK. I just have to get it XD And I’m glad I do get it. If it’s not the follow on content from the LE DVD, it has the Making Of or something else that’s brilliant.

The PV for the song is so good, I love it; it’s so much fun. Airi is so cute in it, and Momo is so clutsy and dorky at times you fall off your chair (… or maybe it’s just me XD …) Miya is, as always, beautiful and….. well, Miya ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s one of my favourite PV’s in their repertoire. The outfits, the song, the choreography. It’s all just perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ ….. It does somewhat remind me of the 60’s though…..

This was the first time I’d gotten to see, up-close, Momo’s jacket. And it’s bloody hilarious~! I can’t beleive they put her in it for the PV and no one said anything……. I can only imagine the sort of outrage it would cause in the western media…… You’ve got to love them ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh, and if you’re offened by swearing, don’t read the below capition….

I love the “Making Of” videos because you get to see the girls off camera and just being themselves. You sort of see their real personality shine through. I know they may be a bit guarded still, but you get to see them interact with each other and just have fun ๐Ÿ˜€ And they do look like they have fun while making a PV. I always thought it would be a terrible process for them, but it really doesn’t look bad at all ๐Ÿ™‚ I wouldn’t be able to do anything like it, but that’s why you have to love them even more.

You see some of the cutest things in the “Making Of” and the “Behind-The-Scenes” videos. For instance, in this one, right at the start Airi makes a mistake right at the end of a take (… not sure what they were filming …) and she gets all embarrassed and it’s so cute.ย  Miya disowns her for a short time XD

Also, I’ve always wondered why Momo uses her pinky instead of her pointer finger when they do the pointing in the PV…… well the “Making Of” sort of sheds some light on why. She can’t keep her finger straight! XD It bends upward when she points.

Miya tries to re-bend it back to what it should be, but it doesn’t work…..XD ….. so Momo decides to try something different, her pinky (… what goes through that girls mind at times ๐Ÿ˜› …) Doesn’t the pinky have a certain significance in Japanese society?? /me ponders for a second ………. well, it’s bloody cute, so I like it ๐Ÿ˜€

OK, I’ll end this with a game ๐Ÿ˜€ Guess who’s love heart infested eye this is:
