Elegies Go Go Go!

Inshouha Renoir no You ni was a song by the 2005 Shuffle Group Elegies with Takahashi Ai, Tanaka Reina, Shibata Ayumi, and Satoda Mai. Since I almost never listen to shuffle groups so I came across this purely by chance, and I’m quite happy I did.

Song/Lyrics: Well I can definitely describe the way this song makes me feel. Like I’m in a rave induced trance, it’s addicting, fast, and it flows well. There are definitely three different feels to the song. The Dakishimete/Chorus, the Dual Singing, Innocence, and the Chorus. The ever refreshing D/C occurs at the beginning, middle, and end of the song adding a cool flowing movement to the pace of the music. The Dual Singing comes in almost unexpectedly and catches you off guard. The effect is mystic as the words are accented at the end of a line making the lyrics sound definitive and subtle. The singing also gets lower along with another member singing the last word of the line to give it a dreadfully sexy depth. The Innocence piece might even catch you off guard more. It’s brief but you can tell the difference when you hear the more delicate singing in contrast with the more subtle notes of the Dual Singing.

From my point of view the lyrics are a bit dirtier than the H!P music I normally listen to.

I’m fine with whatever you want to do to me.”

As far as you can, as far as you can, farther, farther!”

The two of us, excited, there’s not enough time.”

I dunno…it was just bit of a surprise to hear this but after awhile but the effect of the lyrics working together with the PV just won’t let the painfully sexy aura go away.

PV/Dance: Honestly I liked the song much better than I liked the PV–at first. It just seemed like a bunch of frame/paint overlays, but the more the song got suck in my head the more I watched the video and started to love it. The topic of the painter Renoir…I don’t get it–but that’s okay because everything else is so amazing. The dancing and costumes are alright too. Mixing the youngin’s with the veterans definiately made a beautiful arrangement. Overall I think out of the 2005 shuffles Elegies kicked some Sexy Otona/PuriPuri Pink ass, if you’ve never watched it–go!
