Aoyama Thelma - LOLLIPOP (Zutto.'s B-side)
LOLLIPOP serves as the B-side track in Aoyama Thelma's 12th single Zutto. (Forever.) which was released last week on 2nd March .
Zutto. is Aoyama's first ever wedding song , written specially for her close friend Kinoshita Yukina .
The song was described as a tender ballad that expresses a newly-wedded bride's feelings towards her new husband . Aoyama re-wrote the lyrics five times & worked on the song for three months straight , in order to give her friend the perfect wedding gift .
A small wedding ceremony was held at Tokyo's Disney Resort on December 5th for the close friends & relatives of the newlyweds & Zutto. made its unofficial debut & brought tears to the eyes of everyone present
Naturally or not , I was expecting LOLLIPOP to be a total contrast against Zutto. & I wasn't wrong when I heard the song .
LOLLIPOP is interesting because I never heard any song sung by Aoyama that utilises autotune . At the same time , I found the chorus to be a bit gratty as there's where the over dosage of autotune really hits quite a great deal .
But overall at the end of the day , I do enjoy listening to Aoyama's latest single release Zutto. & already when I found out the story/meaning behind the A-side , I can't help but feel touched on Aoyama's kind gesture towards her friend .
B-side wise , it's a song that I can deal without but I suppose I will listen to LOLLIPOP if I'm in the mood for something out of the ordinary .
