One comment on “Hello! Project COMPLETE SINGLE BOOK Interviews: Nagai Rui

  1. WOW thank you for translating this! Otome is in my Top 3 H!P songs of all time and I never knew the story behind the arrangement.

    It is my understanding although I could possibly be incorrect, that adding to the Beatles/Queen feeling is that two of the session musicians for this track and perhaps the others as well were Hiram Bullock and Will Lee of David Letterman’s/Paul Schaffer’s House band.

    Hiram has since passed, but Will Lee is a founder of the famous Beatles cover band The Fab Faux who Tour constantly. I wish we could interview Mr. Lee about any memories of his involvement with Tsunku/H!P. Maybe someday!
