      Average song (the b-side too ...) 3

      When I've heard this song I felt really dissapointed, the will of BoA to seem more adult has generated a series of average songs and they failed to make me feel the great emotions of the past ones.

      Britney Spears Imitation 3

      Although it's a catchy song and you'll find yourself singing or humming the tune after a while, it's not that great compared to BoA's other songs. Also, this song bears extreme resemblences to another artist that BoA's known for copying from: Britney Spears. In one part, there's a line like this: "shoujo janai kedo, onna janai no" which translates into "Although I'm not a girl, I'm not a woman". Sound familiar? So, even though this song is catchy, it's really actually not that great. She can do so much better.

      I <3 this single 4

      What can I say6 Despite this single being a flop, it was an awesome upbeat dance song =] Yes, It's generic but hell most songs today are. The b-side on this single is an awesome song that seems to have a very positive response from alot of fans (forums and school)
