This is a beautiful, sultry song about falling in a one-sided, forbidden love. This would have been a perfect insert song for Yama’s Cain and Able drama! In Japanese 愛・あい・ai means love and they are using the English “I” as a play on this in the song.
The third Fumi solo. Fumi didn’t write the lyrics for this one but somehow it’s just as quintessentially Fumi-esque as the other two. It’s a “cool” song about hitting on a girl but the more you delve into the lyrics the more lame, awkward and Fumi it becomes.
As a note: I added in the “clap clap clap” parts because I feel these are essential to the song. These parts are not in the official lyrics so I have just written what I think he’s saying, Please tell me if you think I have made a mistake.
This Fumi solo is a madhouse of self-deprecating jokes, puns and a whole lot of other stuff that doesn’t make sense if you don’t know much about Fumi and/or if you don’t speak Japanese. I’ve done my best 😅 Fumi wrote these lyrics himself and a lot of fans don’t like this song because it shows how much of a negative view of himself he has… but I view it more as a power balled. So what if they said you look like a horse? You own that. You show them Fumi! S L Boys are A-OK! 😍
Technically not an A.B.C-Z song but I want consistency in the titles! 😅
This Fumi solo is Fumi embodied in a song, even more so than SL Boy. It’s about seeing a pretty girl outside Shibuya Station and working up the courage to ask her out on his dream date. He even wrote the lyrics himself. 未来は明るいかい？ (Mirai wa akarui kai?) means “Does the future look bright?” which, meaning wise, would translate into something like “Do you think I have a chance?”.
I looooove this song! The music and the tune, its such a bop! It’s another song about not being able to let go of a relationship that has ended. I guess it could be perceived as a bit whiney but I think it’s really sweet ☺️
This is a funky song about having determination to reach the very top of your goals, the Top of Ace as they call it here.
