誰かの願いが叶うころ
Lyrics, Music, and Arrangement: Utada Hikaru
4:27

This song gives me chills. It’s so sad… longing, almost. And Hikki’s voice just makes tears well up, it’s so full of beautiful, heart-wrenching, sadness. The lyrics speak of how even when your wish comes true, someone else will be crying. No one’s wish can be granted without someone else’s being broken. It’s setsunai… Musically, a stunning acoustic piano ballad for the most part, violins for emotion, and some light acoustic guitar. Stunning is the word for this single and song.

#2 on the United World Charts? Wow! That never happens… This was her only single for 2004, sadly. Considering how long it took for ULTRA BLUE to come out… her release season so super long. By the way, this song will make you sad, so be prepared if you’ve never heard it before…

A+
