4. Smile again (instrumental)

This is BoA’s 25th single and it was released on December 12, 2007. The single reached #6 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 28,128 copies. The B-side was used as the theme song for the drama Doyo Wide Gekijo.

LOSE YOUR MIND is a unique offering from BoA because it features a different sound from what we normally would hear from her. The song is rampant with stylish electric guitar chords, blaring brass, and dance beats. The guitar is provided by Yutaka Furukawa of the rock band DOPING PANDA and he’s the one that really makes the track stand out, especially during the bridge when he performs his solo. When I first heard the song, I didn’t really find it all that remarkable, but it has slowly grown on me because of the spunky verses and catchy chorus. I recommend muliple listens to really get a feel of the almost “mindless” quality of the music and lyrics (Shoo doo bee Do you wanna shoes, bag, and cosmetic? XD).

The B-side is your typical love ballad, but Smile again is executed extremely well and sung with a lot of emotion. Complete with sweeping strings and wonderful vocals from BoA, this is a nice song even though it’s quite ordinary compared to the previous track. As a ballad, it’s very pretty and heartfelt.
