Mika Nakashima - Dear
Dear is Mika Nakashima's 33rd single & it will be released next month on 27th April .
Mika's brand new single has been selected to be used as the theme song to the movie Youkame no Semi starring Inoue Mao & is said to express the feelings of an adult woman who notices the joys of loving even when grieving her own fate .
It's a known fact that Mika is known for her soulful inspiring ballads & the same thing can apply to Dear as well .
For me , what I like about Dear is that it's simple , understated without going over the top . Unlike some of Mika's ballads that I'm not that fond of , Dear is pretty & the message behind the song has a positive message despite a person who's undergoing a tough period in his/her life currently , something which's pretty much evident in line with Fri's earthquake which struck Japan .
A 2011 New Recording of A MIRACLE FOR YOU serves as the B-side in the single .
The updated version of A MIRACLE FOR YOU is specially dedicated to Mika's patient & loyal fans .
The original take of the song was 1st found as track #13 in Mika's debut album TRUE .
