Younha – Girl

1. Girl
2. Okuri Sobireta Kotoba (贈りそびれた言葉)

This is Younha’s 9th single and it was released on July 22, 2009. The single reached #175 on the Oricon Weekly Charts.

After releasing 2 albums consecutively in her native Korea (Someday and Peace Love & Ice cream), Younha has returned to Japan with a new single! She’s also on a new label. Her Japanese sounds a little rusty in Girl since it’s been a while, but it’s a pretty good song nonetheless. The music is very pleasant and has that wonderful piano pop arrangement that I’m fond of. Some strings and light beats are included as well. As a whole, the song is a step down from previous Japanese singles but at least it’s more original than the stuff on her last Korean album.

The B-side is nice too. Okuri Sobireta Kotoba is similar to Girl but the music is more progressive, especially during the chorus when the arrangement becomes kind of dance-like. It still mixes in that laid back piano during the quieter parts though. I like the way the song ends as well.

Overall Rating

3½ stars

  1. I found Girl to be a little on the boring side (yet still better than her Korean Vol.3, I dare not speak the name of…). I really enjoyed Okuri Sobireta Kotoba though. :D It’s a fun little song.

  2. I don’t really like her songs but she is really talented~ I love her voice as well, so calm and peaceful just like ayaka…ayaka T__T
