I slowed down Kronekodow, now it sounds like Bokoku Jousho. Anyone noticed this before?

Teacher made me give a mini speech about "I like ____ because ____" so I went with Ringo. Then the students had to do a worksheet and write their own sentences, and I peeked and saw one student had also chosen Ringo and written "because her song is good." I asked which song.......

.............Mirrorball.

REALLY?!?!

15 year olds...

When I first listened to Variety, Mirrorball was one of the immediate highlights. I was into a lot of soul/funk at that time too. The song is so laid-back.

The slightly out of tune singing is pretty cool as well.

I suppose you didn't tell them that Mirrorball is an Uki song

That's seriously criminal though. That's kind of like saying your favorite Martin Scorsese movie is Shutter Island. It's like... just... no. No. Bad person.

I don't find it that strange, song is so sensual/sexy, not to mention if he/she saw the Spa & Treatment performance. Let alone the cheerful vibes of its ending part. 15 years old? Enough reasons to like this little song — at that age I was barely conscious of how essential music could be.

Discovery Mirrorball is fun. Mirrorball has a good chorus but the verses and other instruments are just bad.

The whole concert is breath-taking! Ringo is totally knockout on that.
