Perfume – Fan Service [sweet]

1. Chocolate Disco (チョコレイト・ディスコ)
2. Twinkle Snow Powdery Snow

This is Perfume’s 4th major label single (9th overall) and it was released on February 14, 2007. The single reached #31 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 9,214 copies.

For those who aren’t familar with the group Perfume; they are 3 girls whose music is produced by Yasutaka Nakata from capsule. Since this is Nakata I’m talking about, be prepared for computerized vocals with really fun electropop music.

The first track is the incredibly infectious Chocolate Disco. Opening with electronic beeps and echoes, the song stays at a very lively pace. Even though the chorus is really repetitive and the girls just say “chocolate disco” (it’s more like CHOKOREITO DEISUKO) over and over, it’s what makes the song so catchy. I’ve have gotten the melody stuck in my head on various occasions because of its simplicity.

Originally released digitally in December 2006, Twinkle Snow Powdery Snow makes an appearance as the 2nd track. It’s not as upbeat as Chocolate Disco, but it still a grooving song. The beats are a little stronger and have a dance club vibe to them. The vocals can get a just a little annoying at times and the electronic distortions aren’t really helping.

Overall Rating 

3½ stars

  1. Chocolate Disco was so damn funny and cute.
    And it’s true, the simplicity did get to me too.

    Although I do wish they laid off the computerized vocals a bit.

  2. Chocolate Disco’s just awesome, simplicity be damned… It’s too cute to hate.

    Twinkle, however…

  3. =D you have officially got me hooked on Perfume

    & i thank you for that ^.~

  5. Chocolate Disco didn’t make it for me (surprisingly). A lot of people love that song, but it’s just… so annoying. I hate songs like this. I don’t think they deserved #1 on the Oricon, but oh well. There are other people alive in the world.
