YUI - HELLO ~Paradise Kiss~'s B-sides
The following songs serve as B-sides in YUI's 19th single HELLO ~Paradise Kiss~ which was released yesterday on 1st June :
- It's My Life ~YUI Acoustic Version~
HELLO ~Paradise Kiss~ was selected to be used as the opening theme song for the movie Paradise Kiss .
YUI is a huge fan of Yazawa Ai's Paradise Kiss manga . She commented , "The melody came to my mind easily . They are songs that are full of hope"
While HELLO ~Paradise Kiss~ is used as the opening no. , in the case for the 1st B-side YOU , it's being used as the ending theme song for Paradise Kiss .
YOU is a very nice song & compliments/contrasts HELLO ~Paradise Kiss~ . To me , I feel YOU sounds like a mixture/combination of YUI's past songs such as Tomorrow's way , Please Stay With Me & most recently Your Heaven .
I like all the 3 songs that I singled out & I feel YUI combined certain elements from these 3 songs which give rise to YOU which's very calming & soulful .
The ~YUI Acoustic Version~ of It's My Life is the 2nd B-side & like all of YUI's past B-sides , she always has the tendency to acoustic-fy past single releases & this time round , It's My Life got the treatment & not Your Heaven .
I was a bit scared off by It's My Life as it's something different coming from YUI but the acoustic version works well . I always like such simple under-stated touches that YUI brings to the acoustic takes of her songs & in this case , It's My Life ~YUI Acoustic Version~ is no exception .
YUI has been on a music roll lately after releasing her 2nd single release of 2011 , HELLO ~Paradise Kiss~ & it doesn't seem she will be slowing down anytime soon .
There're rumours going on she will release her 20th single on 10th Aug . If so , I sure hope it's true & maybe YUI might be planning to do something special , since after all a 20th single release is kind of a momentum occasion but for now , it looks like HELLO ~Paradise Kiss~ will not be leaving my mp3player anytime soon .
