Tracklisting
1. be with you.
2. precious
3. be with you. (spring acoustic mix)
    [First pressing bonus track]
4. be with you. (instrumental)
5. precious (instrumental)

This is BoA’s 26th single and it was released on February 20, 2008. The single reached #13 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 18,587 copies. The title track was used as the theme song for the movie Inu to Watashi no 10 no Yakusoku.

To put it rather bluntly, be with you. is a ballad. It’s an incredibly sweet song filled with “feel good” vibes and cute lyrics. I didn’t find it as good as say…LOVE LETTER, but there are still some pretty moments here and there. The verses are a little uninteresting but they lead into a great and vibrant chorus, the best part of the song in my opinion.

The B-side is also a ballad, but the music and overall melody is a little bit simpler. precious is average, but at least BoA’s vocals are very nice and just like be with you., it’s a really sweet song.

spring acoustic mix of be with you. appears on the single as a first pressing bonus track. I actually liked this version more than the original because it felt more natural and beautiful. The additional beats and percussion of the original version felt kind of unnecessary so it was good to not hear them get in the way this time around. The song itself sounds a lot better with just strings and piano.

Overall Rating

3½ stars
