Can you share with us your most favorite non-single songs by SCANDAL and why? Anything from their pre-debut EP to HELLO WORLD.
Here's my list in random order:
"Love in Action" from HELLO WORLD --- I enjoy listening to this song so much. This song sound great on vinyl played on a well-maintained vintage sound system. What's most appealing to me are the elements from the mid 70s progressive rock off-timing signatures.
"Ring!Ring!Ring!" from BEST SCANDAL --- Mami was oozing with rock n' roll seduction everytime she sings this. The doo-wop styled vocal harmony of Haruna and Tomomi are so impressive. I'd like to hear or watch Scandal rendering a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of this song someday.
"24 Jikan Plus no Yoake Mae" from Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne single --- Tomomi was like screaming in bitterness on the second pre-chorus, the mere fact that the song was written by somebody else, LOL. Too bad, it was not included in their fifth album STANDARD.
"BURN!" from BABY ACTION --- I consider this as the darkest and most emotional song ever sung by Scandal. Rina seems that she something while writing its lyrics. While, Mami's guitar solo towards the end of the song is totally epic, which reminds me of Kim Thayil's solo on "Black Hole Sun" (song by Soundgarden). We need songs by SCANDAL with longer intrumentals like this. SCANDAL must perform this song again at their international shows.
How about yours?
