The sub-title to this post should be “How A Song Gets Stuck In My Head.” I was actually looking around earlier to see if I had missed the PV for the current OP to Bleach, Shoujo S (the answer: I don’t think it’s aired yet, though I also found this clip that previews the PV), and I happened across a blog that was streaming a random song. Normally in these cases I immediately close the website because I find it obnoxious to automatically stream anything upon loading a page, but this time I paused long enough for the vocals to start, and the song was so good that I ended up listening to the whole thing. One search of lyrics later, I tracked down the title and the artists, and the PV for the song. It turns out that it was Negai by rapper Dohzi-T and singer YU-A (of Foxxi misQ fame apparently), neither of whom I was very familiar with. The PV was interesting as well because it looked like movie or drama quality and portrayed a whole love story in just under six minutes. It’s admittedly sappy stuff that not everyone will like, but I enjoyed the combination of song and video, and these are two more artists I’ll have to keep my eye on from now on.
