1. Bye My Melody (バイマイメロディー)
3. Bye My Melody ~less vocal~
This is Ken Hirai’s 24th single and it was released on June 14, 2006. The single reached #2 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 81,898 copies.
Ignore the cover; it doesn’t mean anything, really! XD
Bye My Melody is a damn good pop song with a nice beat and an overall positive mood. I really liked this song because it is very upbeat and it followed the same style of his last single POP STAR, but without so much synth.
The B-side is hug, a relatively calmer, but still upbeat acoustic guitar based song. The music is full of uplifting ”feel-good” vibes and cheery vocals that put a smile on my face. The song is the perfect contrast to Bye My Melody and an excellent B-side as well.
