Tohoshinki – どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう? [23rd Single]

July 14, 2008 at 1:22 am (Tohoshinki) (, )

Tohoshinki’s 23rd single, entitled どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?, was released on 07.16.08. The single features the title track as well as the fun B-side, Box in the ship.

The title track of the single,  どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう?,  is a midtempo number with strong music. Beautiful instrumentation opens up the song and when the chorus starts, there is a certain energy that comes and makes it stand out. The lyrics are delivered with a certain rapidity that works well as the listener follows every word. The first verse features some nice vocals that go well with the music and the lyrics are still delivered pretty quickly. The first note of the chorus is a bit off-putting so the chorus can grow to be a little annoying. The verses sound pretty nice and the music certainly is gorgeous but the chorus feels somewhat lacking. Overall though it’s a nice listen.

The B-side to the single is Box in the ship. The song starts off with a fun instrumental that has a tropical sound to it that just channels the sounds of summer. The first verse features some very nice vocals that go with the music perfectly and keeps that summer sound very nicely. The chorus stands out nicely with more great vocals and the repetition of “box in the ship” as well as the vocalizing is a very nice touch. The pure instrumental section is a vrey nice touch as it spotlights those summer sounds perfectly. Box in the ship is the standout song on the single and should have been the A-side.

Single Ranking: B +

どうして君を好きになってしまったんだろう? is a nice midtempo number featuring gorgeous instrumentation and some nice verses, although the chorus is a bit offputting. The B-side, Box in the ship, is much more enjoyable and is a nice change of pace for the boys of Tohoshinki. Overall it’s a nice single and worth the time to listen to.
