1. Tashika ni (たしかに)
2. Tashika ni -piano version-
This is Angela Aki’s 7th single and it was released on July 11, 2007. The single reached #15 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 11,210 copies.
Even though Tashika ni is quite a charming song that is very upbeat and free spirited, I couldn’t get over how repetitive it was. The verses and how she transitioned to the chorus by singing whoa whoa whoa were my favorite parts of the song. The first half of the song is great but near the end, that’s when the repetition begins to appear. She begins to repeat the same phrases over and over and I thought it was kind of annoying.
Track 2 is the piano version of the song. I thought the piano was overshadowed by the other instruments in the original so I thought this version was great. Even though the piano version is almost a minute shorter than the original, it still has that repetition.
