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

^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....

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.

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.

^ 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.

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

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 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.

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