Seeing Madonna’s team putting effort into promo for her upcoming best of remix album makes me want Ayu’s team to do similar lol

I feel like remix’s are slowly gaining in popularity again, so it would be great if Ayu hopped on the trend again.

^from your mouth to god’s ears. It’s time already for a new remix album, it’s been more than 10 years!! Maybe they’re saving all of it for the 25th anniversary

For those who were around… was Greatful days not well liked when it was released?

It’s actually a song I find myself listening to a lot, and the colorful video and happy vibes is kind of a rarity in her videography, so I’m just curious how it was received at first.

I tend to find that a lot of people don’t like it now lol

It wasn't hated per se, but it was pretty polarizing at the time. It was definitely seen as the weakest link on the & single.

I think the Japanese fans loved it, especially when sung live and at a-nation. HANABI ~episode II~ was probably the weakest link and had the least promos/performances.

I personally dislike it with a passion, it's a song that I only listen to during lives. It's strange, because the reason I don't like Greatful days is kinda generic, "the happiness of the song sounds fake", but I know there are a lot of songs I love that people have this feeling about them.

However, I know it's not a bad song per se.

Interesting. What song might you consider that not to be the case for? Like a song where you feel the happiness is genuine?

I hypothesize BLUE BIRD? That’s the first that came to my mind as it is very different from her tone in greatful days. Which leads me to compare my perspective on the two.

I actually really enjoy greatful days, but can only handle BLUE BIRD in small doses. BLUE BIRD is a bit taxing for the reason that it’s SO HAPPY. Greatful days on the other hand is just fun, and it’s like I can bop along to it. It’s also got an interesting arrangement with little sound effects that add variation. I find it playful. BLUE BIRD to me is very standard and also kind of tugs at you to be REALLY HAPPY in a way that I feel I’m being dragged by it against my own will. Lol.

Funny though, cause I love HONEY, which one might criticize in a similar manner.

"Ayumi Hamasaki’s debut single “poker face” was released on April 8, 1998, the same year as her first album.Song for ×ד, But also her second album, entitled”LoveppearsMade in Japan was her last album and was released in 2016".

I'm also interested to listen to her second and last album, "LoveppearsMade in Japan".

I also disliked BLUE BIRD for a long time hahaha
Again, not a bad song, but it sounded flat to me. I only started to like it because of live performances.

I don't know how to explain why Greatful days doesnt click to me even now, but it's funny how I say I don't like it, but EVERYTIME she sings it live I'm 100% singing the chorus by heart

With the Barbie movie coming out, wouldn’t it be fun if Ayu was featuring in the Japanese dubbing of it?! Lol

Because it somewhat sounds like Xuxa.

I suppose any time is good as long as you join before the applications for the tickets end.

I got a much needed haircut a couple of weeks ago, i came back and with time, i kept thinking it reminds me of something, then i realised i legit got 2000/2007 Ayu hair now lol To be fair, i've had a few japanese hairstyle photos as examples. It's literally that super layered short bob with long bangs. LOL I haven't had bangs in a decade so it's quite a change. I love that style on Ayu, though so i'm not mad lol I'm tempted to do an all black outfit inspired by talkin'2'myself, now

I only re-relealized (? Lol) today that Moon is technically a summer single…

Do people here consider it one???

I mean it was sung on tour and then released so, it’s technically one due to the timing but it wasn’t created to be one… so, just curious haha.

I never liked Moon so I kind of blocked it out haha. But seeing it on A summer best I was like… wait what???? Lol

yeah I consider it as a summer single, I remember someone here saying that it was kinda interesting how "blossom" sounds like a happy song but the lyrics and her voice are very sad. I consider it a "sad" summer single because of the two songs, lol
