Abe Natsumi [Haha to Musume no Duet Song]

The forgotten solo artist? Once the most popular member of Morning Musume, Abe Natsumi is not anywhere close to her early success. I never hear about die-hard Natsumi fans anymore! I am ambitiously reviewing all of her discography to bring some hype to Nacchi, ending with her newest mini-album release. I won’t let Tsunku stop her solo career and shuffle her into groups until she slowly burns out! *pant *pant.

Haha to Musume no Duet Song is an “unofficial” single from Natsumi she performed with Yosumi Keiko. The single isn’t too bad, and it wasn’t meant to truly be a hit single, but it is comforting to listen to.

My Subjective Score: 8/10


1. Haha no Musume no Duet
This is just a full-out cutesy song. There are some guitar parts, some piano parts, and some of everything. As it is a mother and daughter song, it doesn’t fit with any particular trend of music, but has family-friendly approach. Natsumi and Keiko compliment each other well in the sounds of their voices. This is a cover of an older song, and I am not sure who the original singer is.

2. Koi
Oh, those la-la-la choruses. There are some strange musical sounds sometimes, but I’ll listen to them under any conditions. Koi has the same peppy interaction between the two. I don’t think the song flows perfectly from the beginning to end in composition because the end seems a little disjoint to me personally.

 
Track 1: Haha to Musume no Duet Song
Track 2: Koi
Track 3: Haha to Musume no Duet Song (Instrumental)

 

A singing cellphone conversation! Keiko and Natsumi are playing mother and daughter in a bright house. “Guests” come over and the two dance unaware on the table. It’s so cute to see both of them so happy.

    I have always thought that Abe was one of the best singers ever in Morning Musume and she would be good as a solo act given the proper promotion and live singing opportunities.

    Aaah,…..it’s great to listen to it again😀

    Ohh how can I get the instrumental to download? I’ve been looking for that to do karaoke with! I can’t find it anywhere.

    Also, I never heard the Koi song before, so that was awesome. Thank you for posting that ^_^
