Tracklisting
1. COLORS
2. Simple And Clean
3. Simple And Clean (PLANITb Remix)
4. COLORS (Instrumental)

This is Utada Hikaru’s 12th single and it was released on January 29, 2003. The single reached #1 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 893,790 copies. 

COLORS might seem ancient and outdated (since it was released back in 2003) but I still think it’s a great song. I also thought it was a wise choice for Hikaru to include the song on her latest album ULTRA BLUE because the overall mood and BGM go along well with the newer songs on the album. The song also showed early signs of the synth pop sound that Hikaru later utilized in future material.

First things first, Simple And Clean is NOT the English version of Hikari. It’s the BGM of Hikari set to English lyrics. The English lyrics are not similar to the Japanese lyrics at all. Aside from that, I like this song because it introduced me to Hikki and J-pop altogether, and I say the same thing about the PLANITb Remix as well.

Overall Rating
