^ I actually thought about that, But it just don't sound right when singles that are released before the actual album will have a phase number earlier than the album; which is kinda like having a software update/patch that pre-dates the actual roll out of the software itself...

MM: Onaji Yoru
SS: none (except Tsumi to Batsu which is in 12/8)
KZK: Odaijini, Poltergeist
Kyouiku: Genjitsu ni Oite (not written by SR)
Adult: Kenka Joutou intro
Variety: (from your description, I presume there is none)

Maybe I am forgetting a few b-sides/demos, but it seems that she doesn't write a lot of songs that are not in 4/4.
I hope in her next album (solo or TJ) she will write ALL the songs in anything but 4/4. Come on, it's about time she toyed with some 5/4 (Take Five!), 7/4 (Money!) and more compound time songs please (because I love compound time!)

Some more triple meter tunes:
Kyoiku: Yume no Ato (3)
Adult: Niigata (12)
Lives: Kao (one of my favorite 3/4 melodies ever)

Bringing it back on topic. Variety, unlike most SR/TJ releases, has only two triple moments, and everything else is straight 8. The most obvious is Sake to Geko's "Yuu moment," featuring my much-beloved piano. Seriously, after so many straight 4 songs with wurlys and organs, suddenly switching to 3 with piano was a ray of sunshine.

Variety's second triple moment is very short and isn't technically triple meter. Backing up: even when the tunes weren't written in triple meter, a good bit of SR's stuff, and a bunch of TJ's stuff had a lot of swung tunes or sections, which almost counts as triple meter. (It's not exact, but the quarter is often subdivided into three parts.) Variety continues that trend in its first song, but it stops there. The chorus in the first tune, Lamp, is swung.

But that's it for triple on the whole album. *sigh* Strange -- I'm used to more variety from TJ.

And what is this Niigata song on Adult?

Niigata = Yukiguni (probably)

, by the way, is insanely fantastic.

Do you know that there's an indoor ski-hill in Tokyo called SSAWS (spring summer autumn winter snow)? Perhaps it's a more common acronym than it first seems.

I'm glad you like it. What do you think of the two Ippu-Do albums?

Yeah, sorry, used the SR secondary title. Yukiguni is in 12.

I always thought Yukiguni was 4/4 with a whole bunch of triplets in it, and not actual 12/8. Maybe you're right.
