Morning Musume ‘17 new double a side single.
BRAND NEW MORNING / Jealousy Jealousy.
BNM doesn’t sound like your typical H!P song, in fact it reminds me a lot of After School’s Bang, with the talking/shouting parts in tune with the song.
Jealousy Jealousy is made by Tsunku, yes it does have the ‘Tsunku feel’ to it, it’s retro, jazzy tones almost similar to what J=J tend to be given. I would have to say it also reminds me of something that would’ve been great for Platinum era Musume. It has a cool, adult feel to it and is quite close to Aki Urara with the way it’s sung.
The single will feature two b-sides; one of which is a collab song featured in AKB’s album Thumbail with Sashihara Rino titled 'Get You’. This will be a Morning Musume version. The other b-side will be the Morning Misoshiro song that os a revamp of Morning Coffee as part of their collab with Miso soup making company Marukome.
His death sadly won’t be listed among most “Those we lost in 2015” lists, but John Bradbury was a great drummer, keeping time for “The Specials”, the most famous of the two tone revival bands. No song better demonstrates this than “Gangsters”. RIP
