Nishino Kana – SAKURA, I Love You?



  Nishino Kana – SAKURA, I Love You?

Kana’s 17th single due for release on the 7th of March 2012 – similar to her Tatoe Donna Ni… lyrics, apparently this single will also tell a story of an ex-girlfriend that still has feelings towards her ex-boyfriend.

Well… I have to say that the topic is slowly getting old, but hopefully the melody of the song can make up for it. After all, it’s these kinds of songs that sells really well in Japan.

Update: Now that I’ve listen to the song preview… uh, I’m not really sure it’s going to do well if the rest of the song is about the same or worse melody-wise. Is just not as catchy as, say, her Distance, or her last Alright.

If you like this single, please support Kana-chan by buying Sakura I love you – Normal Version or the Sakura I love you – Single + DVD Version!

Lyrics ( Romaji )

Sakura hirahira
Maiochiru tabi kimi wo

Kotoshi mo sakura namiki ga kirei da ne

    Hm.. i didn’t like the song at first either, i dont think it will sell very well compared to some of her early work.. she needs a new great song to bring her back!(not saying shes getting worse) tbh Tatoe Donna Ni. was amazing vocally and you can tell shes improved.. It just didnt sell as much. I just watched the PV and there was a LITTLE dancing, but it was very pretty and i like the song better be cause of it. also listened to it about 5 times now, the chorus grows on you
