℃-ute - EVERYDAY 絶好調 single & PV



Upon hearing this song for the first few times, I couldn't even listen to the whole thing. I thought it sounded a bit... done. This type of song has been done before. Seeing the PV has made me like the song. But I don't love it. The PV is actually very nice. They are dancing in a very nice location. On a rooftop. Nice. BUT this video is just like "Bye Bye Bye". It's mostly a dance shot with some closeups of two girls at a time. Just like their "Bye Bye Bye" PV. I also feel that the video is a bit repetitive... in the sense that it has been done before. It reminds me SO much of SweetS' PVs. Such as: "Love Raspberry Juice","Mienai Tsubasa", "Sky". Why? Their music videos were basically dance shots with closeups. BUT what makes SweetS' music videos BETTER than many hello project videos is the videos had storylines, closeups, AND a dance shot. A REAL music video. Not just closeups and a dance shot. Without a story line in a music video, it makes me feel that song was nonsense and doesn't really matter because the person directing the video couldn't even come up with a simple story line for the PV. See what I mean?

One more thing to say about this single. IF THIS IS UME-CHAN'S LAST SINGLE AND PV AND...WHATEVER, WHY WAS THIS SONG AIRI & MAIMI WITH BACKUP DANCERS? AGAIN?!! It's very annoying. I'm going to miss Erika and she couldn't even go out with a bang! How will anyone remember her when her last single was THIS... *sigh* it angers me a little.

How do you feel about the PV? Do you think that it is a bit unoriginal? What about Umeda Erika's departure from H!P? Do you think it was fair that she hardly got any lines even in her last single? Also do you think it is fair that she hasn't been in any subgroups since ZYX?

  1. How do you feel about the PV?
    It's OK. It's not bad.

    Do you think that it is a bit unoriginal?
    Sorta.

    What about Umeda Erika's departure from H!P?
    It's better she go off and try to do something she really wants than be stcuk as a "backgroud" dancer.

    Do you think it was fair that she hardly got any lines even in her last single?
    No, but I can't say that I didn't expect that to happen.

    Also do you think it is fair that she hasn't been in any subgroups since ZYX?
    No, I don't think that's fair. But I mean Erika wasn't all that popular compared to other C-ute members soooo....
