Some "Super Delicate" things..
I didn't felt like posting the last few days for personal reasons, so this post may be somewhat outdated but whatever...
Hey!Say!JUMPs "Super Delicate" is out now for one week and as I wrote before I like the song a lot! Despite of that it did really well on the charts (Normally the more I like a HSJ song the less it sells... For instance "Arigato ~ Seikai no Doko ni Itemo~” is still my favourte HSJ single and it was the one that was the least successful ever). But as much as I liked the song, as much I was disappointed of the PV. Except for Nakajima Yutos performance and his extraordinary outfit (the boot/shinguard combi). It was just...boring. I like PVs that tell a story much, much more. JE PVs doesn't fullfil this wish most of the time , but sometimes they do (in case of HSJ: "Mayonaka no Shadow boy" and partially "Hitomi no screen"). Not this time. But this gives me the opportunity to present the following ones to you. They are perfect examples of PVs I really like...so here they are:
Mayday - Starry Night
This isn't brand new, the song was released in late 2011. Just in case you don't know them: Mayday is a band from Taiwan wich is labeled as an "alternative rock" band. I don't really agree to this label, they are just a band that do really good guitar driven rock-pop songs, sometimes very catchy ones ("OAOA"), sometimes tricky and even proggy ones ("Noah's Arch"). This one is an ordinary but good ballad song. Nothing extraordinary at the first listen. But the PV really makes it special. "Starry night" was the closing song of the wonderful movie "Starry Starry night", so it would have been easy to do a PV with scenes from the movie. Mayday didn't do that but took main actor Lin Hui-Min/Eric Lin/林晖闵 (Maybe you remember him from my "Summary 2011" post) and did something what could be described as a short movie. Using the visual trademarks of the original movie they created a wonderful supplement to "Starry Starry Night" but with a new story, wich has ties to the movie but stands on its own.
Give it at a look!

Yellow Fried Chickenz - Mata Koko de Aimasho
Highly emotional PV of the Gackt-fronted band Yellow Fried Chickenz. "Mata Koko de Aimasho" (Let's meet here again) . Great song, great video. This song won't be released as a single but will be featured on the Yellow Fried Chickenz Album "One", wich will be released on 03/14.
Wets my eyes (but I'm a whimp, so that doesn't mean anything)!
Show your heart..
