This is the third solo album by Inoue Kikuko (井上喜久子).
The first pressing of this CD comes in cardboard package containing
the CD plastic case and a color 48 page picture diary.
The cover picture has Kikuko wearing a brown flower design outfit
over a white long sleeve blouse, and she's holding a brown hat.
The back cover has Kikuko laughing and covering her mouth.
The lyrics booklet is in color, and contains many pictures,
all with Kikuko wearing the brown flower design outfit.
The 48 page picture diary is made up of polaroid pictures
taken when she was recording this CD.
It has some of Kikuko's comments scribbled on the pictures.
All songs (lyrics and music) on this CD are by Inoue Kikuko,
and arranged by Kawai Kenji.
The songs are as follows.
- 1: Fushigi na Omajinai
- This song is just music box music.
- 2: Yuubin Post no Sunday
- A upbeat song where Kikuko sings about a mail box near her house.
She considers it a friend that gave her courage to write a love letter.
- 3: Wendenyan Tsukiyo no Osanpo
- This song is the continuation of Wendenyan no Uta from
It's got slow parts, fast parts, country-like parts.. (^_^;)
It's a unique mix and it tells a story of Wendenyan, who sneaks
out of the bag at night to go play outside.
This is a very fun song.
- 4: Mori ga Yondeiruyo
- A slow song where Kikuko sings about the forest calling her to come.
- 5: Hoshizora Keiyu de Todoketai
- A fast song where Kikuko sings about her radio show.
"Please don't sleep for 30 minutes.
I want to deliver my talk to you via the starry night."
- 6: Ajisai
- A slow love song where Kikuko sings about the ajisai
(hydrangea) flower in people's hearts.
- 7: Pauline to Shounen
- An upbeat, story song where Kikuko sings about a boy who hates ramen,
but falls in love with a girl who loves ramen.
In the story, the boy gradually becomes able to eat ramen.
- 8: Kono Umi wo Oyoginagara
- A slow song where Kikuko sings about her thoughts as she
swims in the ocean.
- 9: Doushiyou Kamen no Uta
- This is a funny song about the doushiyou kamen that appears
around Kikuko whenever she can't decide between things.
The first verse is about Kikuko trying to decide between pudding
and cake. At the end she says, "pudding" in a very cute voice.
The second verse is about Kikuko trying to decide between a pink and
blue one piece. At the end she says, "this one" in a very cute voice.
- 10: Aikotoba ha Shiawase
- An upbeat, bouncy song where Kikuko tries to cheer you up,
saying things will work out and to believe in yourself.
- 11: Anatano Tame ni Dekiru Koto
- A slow song, very nice vocals.
- 12: Wagaya ha Nandaka Hawaiian
- A Hawaiian style song, where Kikuko sings about her family
who are always feeling "Hawaiian".
This song is family service.
Kikuko's older sister and mother are in the background vocals.
Kikuko talked a lot about this CD on her radio program
There is no bad song.
My current favorites are Hoshizora Keiyu de Todoketai and
Anatano Tame ni Dekiru Koto.
