dear scandalous fans. Here is my only beef with Scandal: before they recorded "Sakura Goodbye" as their second single, the song was originally just "Sakura." You can see and hear the difference on a couple of older live performances on Youtube. I was seriously dissapointed when the newer version came out because it turned into a pseudo-ballad. it sounded watered down. the original is soooo much better. just watch the awesome guitar rift work by mami. it just rocks out! does anyone agree with me? what are the chances we could petition them for a b-side of this song? anyone?

the song takes on a whole new energy in its original raw form and rocks so hard when the girls perfome it live (devil horn sign with hand!)

I don't understand what a pseudo-ballad is, but personally I liked Sakura Goodbye better...
The lyrics are better, because they choose a nicer words and it also sounds better to the whole song...

As for the instruments, I don't understand music that much, but I think this song really shows us that they're really trying hard in music and have improved in their personal skills...
The most different sound you can hear is MAMI's guitar and TOMOMI's bass parts...
If you mute MAMI's guitar part and amplify HARUNA's, Sakura Goodbye generally sounds pretty much like SAKURA...

Well, Sakura Goodbye has some nice lyrics. The only difference is the opening and the second part. Both choruses are the same with the exception of the latter part and Haruna saying "Sakura......"

As for its music, can't really say its not good or bad. I'm just a listener.

What i can say is,

Sakura has a more raw and uncut sound,it sounds exactly what SCANDAL,or any other band would sound like when they first compose songs together,a first-time-jamming-together-in-a-garage type of thing.For Sakura Goodbye,the producer spruced it up to make it sound more likeable to the masses,like adding "Hello Gubbai" to the song,adding an intro riff,that sorta thing.To me,i like both versions,as they're both rocks songs.Hell yeah.\m/

My thoughts are as the same of Eugene. It's not bad to like them both eh. Happy Onion

As for a B-side of that, hmmmm why not. They did a B-side of the original Yumemiru, so the original SAKURA is not that impossible to happen.

i prefer sakura goodbye but its just plain epic. it has more of a "pseudo-ballad" type feel as you say because i think it fits in better to what they were going for, which was to commemorate Tomomi and Mami's graduation. the more garage-rock type version wouldnt fit very well with that type of situation dont you think? just my opinion.

but still, i like listening to the old version too cause its nice to take a step back and see something from its roots and also to see how far theyve come Smile

I prefer Sakura Goodbye more maybe because I'm use in hearing it. I think in Music the version you first hear or used to will always be the better since it has already grown into you....

It will be nice if they will release it like they did with Yume Miru Tsubasa x Yumemiru Koro wo Sugitemo
