I think it takes some talent to craft a song that is good enough to have lasting appeal. Ikuze! Kaitou Shoujo came out around seven years ago (wow how time flies!) and even though I’ve listened to it hundreds of times and it’s performed at nearly every Momoiro Clover Z show, it still gets me pumped up every time I listen to it.
I prefer the original Momoiro Clover version to the Z versions, but both are incredibly catchy songs with a lot of audience participation involved. Even when listening to these by myself it’s hard not to say the audience participation bits to myself. It’s the type of song that succeeds best live but at the same time has that same kind of energy if you’re listening at home.
Ikuze! Kaitou Shoujo is a modern idol song classic, one I’m sure will be played for years to come. And for good reason, it’s just that great.
