SCANDAL reveals music videos that were difficult to shoot

■SCANDAL/Best Album『SCANDAL』 Interview (1)


SCANDAL released their first self-titled work 『SCANDAL』 as a best album on 2/15. 34 songs were chosen by fans from SCANDAL's 23 singles and 7 albums starting from their 2008 major debut single 「DOLL」, along with 2 new songs. A total of 36 songs are on two discs. As the selection of songs were entrusted to the fans, we requested members to select songs based on themes. We will then be introducing them with episodes. This first edition is "Music videos that were difficult to shoot."


◆3rd Single 『Shoujo S』


MAMI: This MV was directed by Hiroshi Shinagawa and we perform while being hit by rain. We heard before the shoot that "it's going to rain," but we didn't know in what form or in what way until we went to the location.

RINA: The "performing while being hit by rain" situation itself was a bit like a dream come true. That's why I thought, 「This is definitely going to be cool!」 and got excited when I heard about it. But, when we went to the location......

MAMI: It was still chilly even though it was April.

TOMOMI: It was sunny but the temperature was cool. The water was colder than I imagined it would be (laughs).

RINA: Water was placed in a truck and then rained on us with a hose.

MAMI: The raindrops were also larger than usual. This song has choreography too. We were wearing boots and water was getting into them and steadily accumulating. I have memories of getting sad along the way (laughs).

RINA: Also, with the heavier rain than expected, HARUNA's eyebrows disappeared!

All: Ahahaha (laughs).

HARUNA: That's right (laughs). We thought, since we're girls, they wouldn't make it rain as hard as it did.

RINA: It was a downpour. It was forceful enough that it was like taking a shower.

HARUNA: That was still during the time when thin eyebrows were in (laughs). I had to accept that my eyebrows were gone.

MAMI: Everything's a funny story when you think about it now (laughs).

TOMOMI: We were frantic during that time. Thanks to that MV, we got to perform in the same way when we'd appear on TV, and a lot of people got to know about us by watching that. People still tell us 「The rain then was shocking」, so we're truly glad we did it.


◆6th Single 『Taiyou to Kimi ga Egaku STORY』


TOMOMI: This shoot has been the longest MV shoot of ours so far. I think it was around 27 hours. It took a lot of time because we had so many outfits that we had to change into. but we were pumped up all the way until the end rather than being tired and exhausted.

MAMI: Although we went into the studio in the morning, it was still morning when we left. We were like, "Huh? What time is it right now?" (laughs).

RINA: But that shoot was so much fun. We used all kinds of props.

HARUNA: We also had a bunch of solo shots.

RINA: There are a lot of non-performance scenes. It was our first time changing into so many outfits, so that itself was so much fun. We felt accomplished.

■SCANDAL/Best Album『SCANDAL』 Interview (2)


SCANDAL released their first self-titled work 『SCANDAL』 as a best album on 2/15. 34 songs were chosen by fans from SCANDAL's 23 singles and 7 albums starting from their 2008 major debut single 「DOLL」, along with 2 new songs. A total of 36 songs are on two discs. As the selection of songs were entrusted to the fans, we requested members to select songs based on themes. We will then be introducing them with episodes. This second edition is "Songs they'd want to sing at a member's wedding ceremony."


◆For TOMOMI: 「Taiyou Scandalous」


RINA: Yea~h. Perhaps 「Taiyou Scandalous」.

H, M, T: Why (laughs)?

RINA: I imagine TOMO marrying someone she's friends with, or rather, I feel that they'd be a couple who's the same age and are good friends.

HARUNA: You just went ahead and even predicted who her husband would be (laughs).

RINA: That's why I'd make the party more upbeat than emotional. That's why I went with 「Taiyou Scandalous」.

TOMOMI: I'm happy with that (laughs).


◆For HARUNA: 「one piece」


RINA: It has to be 「one piece」.

HARUNA: Why's that~(laughs).

MAMI: I totally get it (laughs).

RINA: HARUNA is stoic and diligent, and getting married is also one of her dreams.

All: (Breaking out in song) <Itsumo miteta yume ga kanau [The dream I've always had is coming true]> (laughs).

HARUNA: Maybe so (laughs).


◆For RINA:「LOVE ME DO」


MAMI: Let's go with 「LOVE ME DO」.

RINA: That makes me happy.

MAMI: I imagine RINA going out with someone for a while and eventually getting married, so whatever happens and as long as they're in love, they can make it.

RINA: Now I feel settled down, I'll get married (laughs).

MAMI: But isn't that not ideal, in a sense?

RINA: We might be a great married couple from the start (laughs).


◆For MAMI: 「Image」


RINA: I think it's 「Image」.

MAMI: Like, I must repaint for a new tomorrow?

RINA: Because marriage is the starting line. I imagined it like, you've been going out for several years; "Let's head to a new future again!" It'd be an emotional wedding (laughs).

TOMOMI: (In a parody style) Me wo akereba [When I open my eyes]......I'll be a married woman (laughs).
