Omg I can't believe it's been that long, and even longer since Days! I was actually thinking s few days ago how sad unlikely it is for ayu to release another winter ballad single after realizing she is deterring from her original sound more and more. I hope it's epic cause I don't want to be let down (winter ballads are my weakness). I hate You Were... so I hope this is really good.

I will totally eat #$!% on everything I've said in the last month if this single is anything like Days. Actually, I'll eat it if she actually does some promotion on this single. I'll eat it even more if this single has a tie-in. Lots of eating opportunities here.

drdolce 15th October 2014 08:13 PM

If it's another recut single, I will lose my faith for real. I'm not lying. It's time to let Colours era go and start the next one.

I will try my best to keep myself having high expectations too, because I will be so disappointed otherwise.

artcika 15th October 2014 09:11 PM

am i the only one who kinda thinks they are sometimes doing those "omg it slipped" things on social media on purpose? cuz i mean seriously....lol

tsumekaze_ 15th October 2014 09:20 PM

my comment for the way this has been announced when telling to a friend of mine was:
"avex stepping up promotion in making fans guess about new releases and ayu be like 'oh yeah right NIU SINGURU!'" yeaaaaaaah XD this is how you promote <3
just joking, i'm freakin' excited about the single~

Yoake 15th October 2014 09:39 PM

I'm exicted by this news. This feeling was missing during Colours and Terminal era. Nice to see it come back home. I just hope she got rid of her westernization. I want song that exude Ayu's touch.

orangeakira 15th October 2014 09:43 PM

Here's to hoping she can make a winter ballad without making it sound typical. I really really really don't want a Days/Momentum/You were.../No way to say ~episode 9~

artcika 15th October 2014 10:17 PM

i think i'll hold my horses with getting excited untill we actually get an announcement, and even better - a preview lol

I do. Best analogy I have for this is regarding your favorite food. If you go to a restraunt expecting and order your favorite hamburger and it ends up tasting like a hotdog, you're going to be disappointed. Because you've grown to love that hamburger for what you expect it to be. Even if you don't mind hotdogs, you were in the mood for a hamburger so that's what you were expecting and craving.

I understand, but if the chef surprises me with something unexpected and incredibly fresh (yet having the restaurant's "personal touch") like Sexy Little Things, alterna, BRILLANTE... I will go to this restaurant as often as I can! :D

Ayumi Hamasaki new single - Turkey

owlflight 15th October 2014 11:39 PM

I would like an official announcement. Either way this sounds intriguing as I love Ayu winter ballads.

mi|kshake 15th October 2014 11:42 PM

I'm up for a Winter ballad or whatever else Ayu wants to give us!! I may even have to "spoil" myself and buy it from iTunes (I usually wait for the album) so I can listen to it during the Winter.

She can make a cheeseburger, but make a different cheeseburger every time. Try a bourbon burger, and then a bacon burger, and then a veggie burger, etc. Imagine if you went to a restaurant and they had a menu dedicated to just burgers, and by ordering each one you find out that there's only one ingredient different in each dish. You'd get pretty bored and disappointed.

mmm food analogies. I want a burger.

Although I hate dragging utada into an ayumi conversation. Can't Wait Til Christmas and Final Distance are both what I personally would consider winter ballads and they're not similar at all. Ayu can try something different for once and not make a huge depressing cry heart out lost love winter ballad. Koda kumi needs to try too. I think she's worse than Ayu. All her videos are cellphones, crying, and dead Caucasian boyfriends.

Not for me, if something is my favorite and I'm craving it then that's what I'm craving. I don't want anything else, I want what I've come to love for the reasons I've come to love it. I don't consider those songs winter ballads; winter ballads are different than ballads in the sense that they evoke the aura and environment of winter - Hikkis is a nice listen but it doesn't exude snowflakes falling from the sky while simultaneously warming the heart and soul. I prefer those grand winter-style songs. Give me another momentum/no way to say/days please.

When something has become a "favorite" it is because you have decided that certain aspects about it bring great pleasure and when the aspects you love overtime become nonexistent, then the basis for which you value and assign your favoritism begins to crumble and that's when disappointment ensues. Look at the outrage that ensues when coke altered their flavor generations ago. Lol.

In closing, when I buy a pear I expect it to taste like a pear. When I buy orange juice I expect it to taste like orange juice. When I listen to ayu, I expect it to sound like ayu.

orangeakira 16th October 2014 09:06 AM

^I think you're getting "Winter" and "Christmas Spirit" mixed up. Winter isn't heart warming. lol

yamadashun 16th October 2014 10:59 AM

what is her last winter ballad?

holy_arrow 16th October 2014 11:29 AM

I guess that was "how beautiful you are" or "You were"

NEVER EVER get bored of No Way To Say and the PV awww <333

orangeakira 16th October 2014 12:48 PM

NWTS is definitely one of her best winter ballads. I think I like it so much because it's one of the first. If she made it after Days, You Were, Momentum, and Moon I'd probably not like it as much.

Gustavopc 16th October 2014 01:07 PM

MOON is not a winter ballad tho, and it is one of my fav ayu songs, its so ethereal and beautiful, the lyrics are just <3

It really is so good though. I never really liked it much until sometime earlier this year, when I got on a major Ayu kick again. It'd come on play and I'd just be floored by how I could have never realized how awesome it was when I was younger lol.

TeamAyu2004 16th October 2014 02:28 PM

NWTS was one of those gems that you didnt realize was good till after she started realizing a string of winter ballads and then you're like... OHHHHH.... yes I see now! lol

I'd venture to say Virgin Road even though it came a couple months early. "how beautiful you are" is probably more likely, but if we're talking album tracks included, Ivy is the most recent.

As far as the single, I'd love to see another triple-A. Ballads like Moments/NWTS/Dearest/Dolls/HANABI... you know, something with Ayu's beautiful intros and unique atmosphere.

But I think, above all, it's been 8 years since we've had something like JEWEL, a hybrid of something like Dearest and curtain call. (EDIT: I take that back. We've had Sweet scar since... I'll take another Sweet scar, please.)

And if she manages to surprise us with something, like she did on L by releasing Last angel, I'll probably die. I remember when that announcement came and I was like, "OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG A TRANCE BALLAD OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG" and promptly spilled my virginities all over the place. Four years later, I still have to stop what I'm doing and turn the volume up when I listen to it.

Lol they are synonymous for me. Once again, winter ballads are not ballads released in winter. They are songs that evoke the feeling of winter and hbya does not do that. You can listen to it on a summer evening and get the same feeling. However, no way to say and etc, those are songs that you can't truly experience correctly unless it is winter time.

Even though MOON wasn't released in winter, it does give off a somewhat similar feeling. Listen to it in the winter at night and you will know what I mean. It does a much better job at imitating the feeling of the moon in winter time than spring/summer (actually best is during autumn when air is chilly and sun is setting and moon is out).

nice :D
This comment makes me love MOON even more. I also associate different moments with different songs.

Heavenly 16th October 2014 08:37 PM

I want something with acoustic guitar... the kind of song you can listen to when your wrapped up in a fleece cover , next to the fireplace.

artcika 16th October 2014 09:11 PM

^i wouldn't mind something like "sweet scar", which has acoustic guitars in it. i don't know why but it always makes me think of winter's misty roads in a setting sun, or a walk in a wintery forest....

orangeakira 16th October 2014 09:13 PM

I'm not sure if this technically counts but my favorite "winter" song is appears. When's the last time she had a non-ballad winter song?

I agree with everything except about MOON. Well, I agree MOON is more evocative of autumn. But I don't find it wintery at all. :P

Stuff like how beautiful you are, Ivy, etc. doesn't fall into the "winter ballad" category at all for me. I'd say her last winter ballad was You were... unless I'm totally forgetting something that might have come after it.

Stuff like how beautiful you are, Ivy, etc. doesn't fall into the "winter ballad" category at all for me. I'd say her last winter ballad was You were... unless I'm totally forgetting something that might have come after it.

I feel MOON works in winter as well. If snow is still and air is calm. At night and stars are out. Where as, something like No way to say works at night but when there's a slight wind in the air and it is snowing. Especially if the wind picks up during the chorus pieces; I melt of bliss when that happens. Days works best in winter day time, with snow but also nice when sun is out and the snow is glistening. Momentum is good for more dreary winter atmosphere. Something a little more aggressive and heavy snowy wind gusts.

I honestly believe that merry-go-round/feel the love are winter songs which are not ballads. I'm not sure. Maybe because of its release date. It was winter when the single was released and I had so much memories during those days. So yeah, the feeling that these songs invoke to me whenever I hear them is winter.

Meh, I don't really get the winter feel from either of those songs (Feel the love/merry go round). Just because they were released in the winter doesn't mean they are intended to be winter songs. If that's the case then my real favorite winter song is Rule because it was released in February. :D

^ They feel like winter songs but not like winter songs if you catch my drift... They totally sound like winter releases to me though, just not specifically seasonal. :P

Most likely a December single, maybe Christmasy

Totally agree! If songs were seasons, MOON would be autumn. :luv2

I'm happy about a potential new winter ballad, but I'm really dreaming of another summer ballad like the HANABI's or SEASONS.

Was Sunset the last one? It's more midtempo but still.

I really hope for a positive Xmas ballad!! So excited!

I miss her Secret Christmas lives...
Ayu wrote today that she'll be recording and shooting since next week. She tells us to wait for the best winter ballad.

Violently Happy 20th October 2014 10:14 AM

I hope she makes another ballad like Dearest, Moments, or HANABI!

Linza-mo 20th October 2014 01:32 PM

Can't wait! Hoping for something more darkish. Definitely not Days ep II.
