Terada can write songs like this as well?!
Then write some for H!P, too! (laughs)
19: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/06(日)15:06:15 ID:???
The song’s so good, I laughed.
2: 名無しさん 2014/04/05(土)22:28:01 ID:???
I laughed at how much it sounds like a song from Kikuchi Momoko’s golden age.
4: 名無しさん 2014/04/05(土)22:35:36 ID:???
More than Terada, I thought Hirata Shichirou did an awesome job. I wonder why they won’t put out songs like this with H!P.

“You never know where life will take you. I was looking at her on film posters and on the pages of the magazine “Momoco” before she’d even debuted. That was part of my youth. It feels like it was just a while ago, but in reality it’s been over 30 years already. And now, getting to work with her on music, I feel really honored.
They gave me no advice as to how I should write it. “It’ll be Kikuchi Momoko’s first original song in a long while. Good luck.” It’s been a while since I was last given such a difficult request. I think might’ve had some trouble with it at first, but when I grasped the kind of song I wanted to write for her, it feels like I’d finished it in no time at all. Well, of course it still took time to get the arrangement, instruments, lyrics, vocals, etc, done, but still.
The album — as well as the song — might be like a bittersweet “love letter of youth” to all the boys like myself who were watching her way back then.“

He apparently gave quite a lot of pointers to the lyricist Suzuki Osamu, too.

The answer song to “Seishun no Ijiwaru”.

““Seishun Love Letter” is an answer song to Kikuchi Momoko’s debut single “Seishun no Ijiwaru”.”
“Seishun no Ijiwaru”
Lyrics: Akimoto Yasushi, composition: Hayashi Tetsuji
Terada writing an answer song to Akimoto. (laughs)

Momoko for 12th gen!
8: 名無しさん 2014/04/05(土)23:01:43 ID:???
Kikuchi Momoko has quite the H!P face. Could it be that Kikuchi Momoko is Tsunku’s ideal girl?
17: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)10:07:41 ID:???
I wonder. Terada’s said he doesn’t put his type into H!P.
14: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)09:21:38 ID:???
She looks like Captain.

“Momoiro Kataomoi” is an homage to “Natsuiro Kataomoi” (probably).
13: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)09:21:19 ID:???
That’s definitely an homage!
…Don’t know for sure though.
18: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)13:19:03 ID:???
So Tsunku’s able to write this type of straight-up idol song if he wants to.
I wish he’d at least put one on Juice’s album.
20: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/06(日)15:17:39 ID:???
I listened to “Seishun no Ijiwaru”, but I think Tsunku’s answer song came out even better. Being an answer song, the lyrics make allusions to “Seishun no Ijiwaru” and even the arrangement is purposefully old-fashioned. They must’ve really done their best with this one.
21: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)15:18:51 ID:???
It’s kind of surprising how it seems like there are no members in H!P who could sing, or rather, who this song would fit well.
22: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/06(日)15:21:01 ID:???
Seems like it would’ve fit Mano-chan back in the day. Cute voice + not a great singer but can at least sing on key + just around the age when she’s graduated from high school. How many members are there like that currently?
23: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/06(日)15:22:28 ID:???
What about Ayacho? She’s a good singer now though.
25: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)15:27:53 ID:???
Kikuchi has a whispery singing voice though. It’s kind of the opposite to what H!P does.
24: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)15:26:32 ID:???
You can feel Terada’s love for Momoko.
26: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/06(日)15:28:40 ID:???
You definitely can. Don’t tell me that Momochi passed the audition just because they share the same name… (laughs)
29: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/06(日)17:00:40 ID:???
I’d heard the name but I didn’t really know Kikuchi Momoko at all, so I checked out several of her songs on YouTube and it’s actually pretty good stuff. The fact that Tsunku offered her a song that fits her so spot-on means he must really like her.
31: 名無しさん 2014/04/06(日)17:04:29 ID:???
Kikuchi Momoko was part of the same office as Sugiyama Kiyotaka and Omega Tribe. While her material was all idol songs, they were on par with the songs from artists like them.
33: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/06(日)23:50:15 ID:???
That’s a nice arrangement, too.
35: 名無しさん 2014/04/07(月)00:17:06 ID:???
Even if it was just for an instant, hearing this made me feel like Terada is a genius. (laughs) This goes for Hirata Shouichiro, too, but they really nailed it as far as making it fit her image.
36: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/07(月)01:05:09 ID:???
To get serious for a minute. When it comes to the general public, the name “Tsunku” only brings to their mind Sharan Q, Love Machine or Happy Summer Wedding, but he’s actually a really diverse composer. Of course the H!P wota know he can write all kinds of songs, but I’d really like everyone else to be aware of it, too.
38: 名無しさん 2014/04/07(月)09:18:13 ID:???
Terada is indeed a pretty capable composer. But the thing is, if he’d produced this song for H!P, it’d surely have ended up sounding like just another “Tsunku song.” (laughs)
34: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/04/07(月)00:12:00 ID:???
Apparently Kikuchi Momoko’s fans are happy with it, saying like “it was worth buying the album just for this!” Tsunku’s sense of melody really is wonderful.
Henkka: One day I might stop being amazed by this man. Today is not that day.
At first I thought it was the classic “amazing Tsunku work, she’s a genius” H!P fans always say when it’s just the average garbage he does, but in fact this song is very good.
Lol, the lyrics were written by someone else.. of course its good.. Get Tsunku to write the lyrics.. I bet it would be something weird or perverted
I see no need to be impressed by Tsunku for being able to compose an 80’s style song. The song is great, especially when I love 80’s idol music, but in a way, all the textbooks have been written for 80’s music; he’s not breaking into new terriroty. It’s like being impressed by an indie video game developer who gets the retro 8/16 bit design right. All the cards are laid before them. In a way, it’s below Tsunku’s level because of how generic 80’s it is.
Although it admittedly helps that I dig the 80’s sound, I’m not impressed because Tsunku wrote an 80’s style song. I’m impressed because it sounds really good to my ears.

“6: ,,, Terada writing an answer song to Akimoto. (laughs)”
that’s a disgusting mental image.
I dig it.
