WaT – 夢の途中 / TOKIMEKI☆DooBeeDoo [9th Single]

WaT’s 9th single, entitled 夢の途中 / TOKIMEKI☆DooBeeDoo, was released on 01.16.08. TOKIMEKI☆DooBeeDoo was used as the SKY Perfect “e2” CM song.

夢の途中 is the single’s first A-side. The song begins very quickly with the chorus and a sweet slow pop instrumental that catches the listener’s attention. During the first verse, there is a certain relaxing feeling that comes through the music and the boys’ smooth vocals. The guitar comes out to play during the pure instrumental section, which is really ear-catching. This song is a very sweet one that the listener can just fall in love with.

The second A-side is TOKIMEKI☆DooBeeDoo. Opening the song is a very fun and happy atmosphere that is very catchy. The first verse then begins and the vocals are very smooth, carrying along with the music perfectly. Poppiness and a fun atmosphere really make the chorus stand out as the boys give more strong vocals and the instrumentation remains addictive. While the A-side is an sweet midtempo song, this one takes on a cooler and sleeker atmosphere.

In order to promote the single, two PVs were made. The first one, for 夢の途中, features the boys sitting in a movie theatre without anyone else there as well as the two performing with their guitars on the stage. It’s nice and simple, reflecting the song’s atmosphere. While the first PV was sweet, the second one is strange. The boys are dressed up in colorful outfits and perform in front of a green backdrop. It’s really strange but matches the energy of the song.

Single Ranking: A

This double A-side is a great combination of the sweet midtempo 夢の途中 and the fun and energetic TOKIMEKI☆DooBeeDoo. It’s a great single from the boys and one worth checking out.
