Fujimoto Miki - Oki Tegami
After 5 (count them) 5 whole years Miki Fujimoto has finally released a much needed and desperately awaited single which is called 'Oki Tegami' which basicly translates to 'open letter'.
I (like many others) are very very happy to see Miki return after her extended 'hiatus'and are hoping she can again wow us with her impressive vocal range and decadent beauty.
Now as the song starts we are treated to a beautiful piano segment which is slowly drawn into some lovely string arrangements, Miki's voice starts to delicately float along the piano notes, from the first 30 seconds of this track I am already captivated by Miki's voice ... which instantly leads to the thoughts of 'damnit ...why isnt she in Morning musume anymore?' ... they need more strong vocalists! ... but thats a rant for another day.
The video is a fairly simple low budget affair but it manages to capture the mood and feeling of the song, the mood being 'I'm sad ... yet optimistic' ... well I'm taking a wild guess at that, but Im sure its something along those lines ... she could be singing about rat poison for all I know.
Throughout the video Miki goes through about 3 different emotions which are reflected on her face, the first expression is 'Im sad' the second is 'Im a lonely puppy please dont leave me' and the third being 'Im going to boil your bunny rabbit and pour acid all over your car', Hell hath no fury like a Miki scorned, and she is one of the last females on the planet I would want to piss off.
All in all its brilliant to see her back, its a beautiful track that really displays her more reserved vocal style, I'm curious if any of her future work will involve a 'boogie train' approach? but I guess the burning question is when her and Aya will continue with their pseudo lesbian affair ... I for one will be waiting with baited breath.
