1. Water Me
2. Gimme A Beat
3. MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR
4. Water Me (instrumental)
5. Gimme A Beat (instrumental)
This is BONNIE PINK’s 23rd single and it was released on June 6, 2007. The single reached #7 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 31,269 copies. The title track was used as the theme song for the drama Watashitachi no Kyoukasho.
I absolutely loved Water Me. The song reminds me a lot of her 2003-2004 works because it has a melancholy alternative sound similar to past songs like Last Kiss. The piano is such a great addition to the song and it has a nostalgic feeling to it. The chorus is definitely the best thing about the song and BONNIE PINK’s vocals are very heartfelt. Another thing about the song that is unique is the blaring electric guitar solo during the bridge.
The B-side is the extremely catchy Gimme A Beat. The song is very upbeat with a lovely chorus. At certains points in the song, the instrumentation seemed to overpower BONNIE PINK’s voice. With that aside, this is an excellent B-side and I’m glad she included it on her latest album Thinking Out Loud.
The 3rd track is a cover of The Beatles’ MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. The main thing that I didn’t like about the cover is that it is way too rushed and the overall sound of the song is just plain strange. BONNIE PINK should have picked a different Beatles song to cover because this one did not suit her well.
