The Pierces - Secret

Rating: 5/10
Swear this one you'll save
Happy New Year to those who celebrated. Monkey is up next, but for now: a peaceful year to the Sheep.

Used to love this song, then I decided that it was too 'dark' and stopped listening to it and forgot about it. Just remembered it today (2/17/15) while looking at a Fancy Feast advertisement in a CVS weekly flyer (I swear I'm not promoting a brand over others). I didn't like that one part where (1:44 - 2:18); still don't.

Secret appears as Track 1 on Thirteen Tales of Love and Revenge, released in 2007 (iTunes link).

Hatsune Miku- Hop! Step! Instant Death! A Happiness Dance Death-Trap

Rating: 6/10
To all you happy people! Welcome!/ Glad ya came!
I was going to write the draft for the prequel to this song (This Is the Happiness and Peace of Mind Committee), but when I logged on to the blog interface, it happened that ArchonofFail was working on one already... 0.o; So I wrote a draft for this instead. Then I sat on it till he published it.

I like this song, I really do, but it's too disjointed for me to put into a playlist that I won't mind playing on repeat. I do love the contrast between the upbeat tone and what Miku is actually singing about.

This song was uploaded to niconico on 24 July 2013. Lyrics are by Tory Hitsuji and illustrations done by wogura, but Utata-P the one who commonly gets the most credit.

Apologies for not posting last week. I'll try not to miss any more weekends. Hop!Step!InstantDeath! is the 6th installment in the Happiness Series.
