Cool Japanese Music Vol 4. Utada Hikaru

It was 1998 when I left Japan. In that year, Hikaru Utada made her debut. So did Ringo Sheena. When I came back to Japan, I can remember my brother asking me, “Do you know Utada Hikaru?” he talked excitedly about her.

Hikaru seems to be good friends with her peer Ringo Sheena, and they made a wonderful song “two-hour vacation” I was drawn in by the artistic and sexy music video. Above all, I sympathize with the words, “It’s been a long time since I became a supporting character in a story.

At the beginning of this year, I heard Kaze Fujii playing “Time will tell” and I thought, “What a nice song “Someone wrote in a comment on Youtube that Hikaru wrote this song when she was 15 years old, and that he didn’t have the idea that time would heal his heart at the age of 15. I agree with that. I wonder how many times she’s been reincarnated.

Her new song, Kimi ni Muchu (crazy about you) is very good. That’s used for a theme song for the Japanese drama, Saiai.
