Alive

Physical thing

I still think all these years Alive is really under-rated :s

And it's 1 of the rare Kuu singles I personally bought as I normally will usually get her studio & best albums

^ it is definitely one of her own songs she might not even like.
She barely sang it live, finally considered the B Side as the A Side of the single, squiz the PV in her studio album and even not include it in her ballads collection.

I also think No Regret is the song she didn’t like in her discography. Only difference from Alive is that the song was successful so she performed it more often.

As in CD Rip ?

I probably can see just only the 3 new songs in the fanclub exclusive album upload cos the rest of the songs in the tracklist are already included in her past releases :s

Why she doesn't like No Regret? It was the first song I've ever heard from her...

She performed No Regret around 7 times on TV and two times in her concerts, it's not like she hates the song.

Kumi don't usually perform live songs that she didn't write, and since No Regret was written by Toru Watanabe that's probably the case. The same thing applies to JUICY.

Alive and Ashita e are her most forgettable ballads ever imo.

I remember reading Avex pushed her to release No Regret in the 12 singles (and as a non limited one) because of the anime tie-up. It was an easy choice to bring commercial success.
Although she performed it in TV shows, she only performed the song in her live tour as parts of medley. Popular songs within her audience are not necessary songs she likes, especially at her peak when she had less control over her career.

No Regret is not a bad song tho and for this particular one I think it was right of the label to push something that brings money within a very costly campaign.

I don’t know.
Crazy 4 U, DDD or ECSTASY are some examples of songs not written by Kumi but quite often performed in tour.
JUICY is probably another example of song she might not have chosen to release at that time.

True!
AVEX often failed but they managed the 12 singles project so well!
After all these years, I’m still amazed by how great this project was.

Yeah, it's hard to know why for sure. I personally love No Regret and just like Marurosu, it was my first Kumi song thanks to Maeda Ken performing with HINOI TEAM. lol


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2ME-lTit4g
The Bold & Delicious performance is awesome as well. haha

The whole 12 singles was a very successful project. Not only the singles sold well enough with two of them being #1, the album compiling the singles almost selling 2 million copies.

It was insane! I think that project bring her continuous success.
From her first best of, only few songs are hits from general audience. She could went down quickly like BoA after the best of success.

It’s interesting to see that even today most of the singles are parts of her most popular success. Lot of videos have more than 200k views on her Chanel (you, Someday, WIND, DDD, Shake It Up, Birthday Eve, No Regret, Candy). Even Lies, Ima Sugu Hoshii and feel have moderate success. KAMEN was definitely the biggest risk of the serie!



Another interesting fact, they created a XXKK playlist in her YouTube Chanel. Normally only albums are represented. The theory discussed previously might be true.

doesn't really matter if CD rip ...

I am just waiting for a full album to be uploaded somewhere, since I wasn't following Koda for a last few years, so I want to listen to all those songs in one album.

I can't stop thinking about this comment... I hope Koda blesses us this year with something like it

I remember that performance! I discovered Kumi searching for an anime song that I don't know anymore which song was... But when I was searching for that only "No Regret - Koda Kumi" appeared to me... So one day I was just a little bit frustrated for not finding the anime song and I decided to download this "No Regret - Koda Kumi"... That's my story. LOL.

So sad that he died...

^ That happened to me with Tamaki Nami. Funny enough, I was supposed to "know" Kumi before that, because right around the time the Gilgamesh anime was airing, I was quite interested in the story because one of those anime magazines, but I could never find a subtitled version of it. It would definitely be love in the first listen to Crazy 4 U for sure. lol

@Darkifrit I believe they create a new playlist every time she has a new single, ever since they started uploading songs there. I might be wrong, but I do remember a playlist for puff.

I don't mind a new compilation XXKK. Maybe next year she can do a real tour really celebrating her 20th anniversary, because both MY NAME IS... album and tour isn't it. If it happens, I do with it was in her compilations format, like BEST ~fourth dimension~ or whatever.
