In my first post I mentioned how I use idol songs to improve my mood, and by my estimation there’s no song that’s quite as mood-lifting as Kiss Me Happy. It’s just pure sugary bubblegum pop but in the best way, by crafting a song that’s so upbeat and happy that it’s infectious. When I think about wanting to listen to an idol-y song, Kiss Me Happy is one that I listen to.
Honestly, thinking of more to say is tough. There’s nothing particularly wrong about the song to harp on, though one of the members’ vocals sounds a bit like Kermit the Frog in that it sounds like she drank a big glass of milk before recording and got her vocal chords all gummy. But other than that small thing (which isn’t even really a thing), Kiss Me Happy isn’t bad. That said, it being pure idol pop it’s not particularly interesting, either. Whereas Especia’s Danger is a song I’d point to if I wanted to make an example of an interesting song, I wouldn’t do that here. Kiss Me Happy is like a slice of plain cheesecake – it’s good, there’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s not particularly interesting. And yet, like that plain piece of cheesecake, there’s something comforting about revisiting Kiss Me Happy.
