Finally, a light one.  Pardon the pun.

I don’t feel like there’s a lot to say about this one, though I’ll try to fill a couple of paragraphs.  I can find no evidence for this, but I feel like it was filmed in Hawaii, which would make sense.  It seems that Tsunku has a particular fondness for Hawaii, and I’m starting to not really blame him.  I think if I ever have a chance to retire, Hawaii would be a great place to live out the rest of my days.  Good luck to me, I suppose.  Hawaii ended up being a recurring theme for Morning Musume, with some of their specials actually being more of a tourist advertisement for Hawaii than anything else.  Still fun, though, obviously.  I love that the girls, as hard as they worked, still seemed to have fun.

This was a cheerful song.  It actually did kind of have a summer vibe to it, and I liked that.  This is one of the few Morning Musume videos I’ve seen so far where the lyrics and the music actually matched the video, which is a definite plus in my eyes.  It was still quite obviously, stylistically, an early Morning Musume song and video, but it kind of had Malibu, beach boy vibes, and I liked that a lot.

Summers in Texas are, umm… not like that.  If you like heat, come to Texas!  We got loads to share!

I guess a Sultry Lone Star rating is in order.

Cheerful and well harmonized.

3.5 out of 5.0 stars

I liked it a little more than average and this is arbitrary anyway.


3.0 out of 5.0 stars

Nice, average summer love song.


4.5 out of 5.0 stars

I’m giving half a star because the yellow sundress was pretty.  Beautiful scenery.
