Thumbs up

I'm really curious about what Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis are doing - they produced "Wait and See" and "Time Limit" for Utada back in the day, I wonder if they and Peabo are re-working one of those tracks or making a whole new world out of one of Utada's other songs...

EDIT: I'm not up on the most recent decade of Ayu's career, but I find it interesting she's near the bottom of the list? lol

So it's a tribute album to Utada and Ringo will be doing one of the songs, probably Travelling?

I have to say, I had this AHA moment about myself when I was watching Ringo's cover of it for the first time a couple of days ago. I like the song Travelling, it's very nice. But if Ringo's version was the only one that existed, I wouldn't liked it much because I'm sick and tired of that soft jazz lounge singer thing she does. So apparently I'm easily distracted by style and the same melody can draw 2 very different reactions from me, based on the style.

I'd say it's to do with track order, not fame level.

The tofubeats x Bonnie Pink song interests me a fair bit.

I'm hoping its not traveling. I notice Ohashi Trio is on it and he did a pretty kick ass version of traveling on his cover album before, so.

Pumped for this! Not just for the Ringo cover.

I'd rather it wasn't Traveling. :/ The live rendition was fun for what it was, but the style of her rendition isn't something I'd want to play back too many times.

It probably will be Traveling though because EMI loves crushing my dreams.

I'm more excited to see what Ayu will do!

I'm seriously fearing it will just be the live audio taken from the special

No way this is gonna be a cohesive, unified piece of work with a strong point of view though... I mean Ayu covering Utada... A FUCKING WORMHOLE IS GONNA OPEN (again).

But in all seriousness, I've known about this release for a while before the official announcement of the artists, and I had a pretty strong feeling that traveling by Ringo would be on it. My main problem is that they went from having this as the stand in cover:



To THIS ugly piece of crap as the official cover:

I'll kill myself if that happens.

First cover is best cover. It reminds me of Revolver (the eyes especially) which is no bad thing.
