3. SOME BOYS! TOUCH (Instrumental)

This is Maki Goto’s 16th single and it was released on October 11, 2006. The single reached #5 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 29,459 copies. The B-side was used as the first ending theme song for the anime Ginga Tetsudou Monogatari ~Eien e no Bunkiten~.

In my opinion, this is the ultimate guilty pleasure. SOME BOYS! TOUCH is probably Maki Goto’s most daring song to date and it shows off a more mature sound as well. Okay, the song isn’t really all that dirty like the title implies, but the lyrics are a huge tease and the way Goto sings might convince you otherwise. The music is mostly aggressive synth while still having an overall pop arrangement. This is most evident in the chorus where the music changes to have a more pop sound. The elevating verses and the awesome bridge were the most impressive parts of this song. I didn’t know that Tsunku, the composer AND writer, had it in him to create such a great track.

The B-side is a lot more cutesy pop than the previous track. ALL OF US is a simple song comprising of mostly strings and light percussion that create a light-hearted atmosphere. Goto’s vocals are good but sound a little boring at times. As far as her B-sides go, this one was okay.

Overall Rating

4 stars
