The last song of September:
SWEET RAIN SWEET HOME by Fuzzy Control
There’s something simple about this song that makes it likable. It’s not terribly fast nor involving, but it keeps the same tone throughout the song. This is actually the first song I have heard from this band. I don’t know if this style is typical for them, but I would be glad to hear more songs from them and give more songs of theirs a try.
I sometimes need to hear songs like this to restore my faith in these types of songs. What I mean is that in this day of faster-paced rock, metal and rap songs, it’s nice to hear something that takes a simpler approach. And yet, this is also not a slow melody either. Beginning Japanese students will likely find this song fast if they sang it at karaoke.
All of this being said, this is a solid song worthy of this week’s spot.
