stuck on you
Lyrics: H.U.B. / Composer: Tanaka Hayato / Arranagement: Maestro-T

‘stuck on you’ comes in with galloping, 60-esque strikes of horns and drum and synth. Screaming and then the song slows down slightly adding legato violins. The lyrics speak about Yuna finding herself in love with a ‘bad boy’ and having fun talking it out with herself and with her friend on the phone. The song is catchy and up-beat with a good helping of sugar. Perfect summer fare…

These Boots Are Made For Walkin’
(Cover of Nancy Sinatra’s 1966 #1 Hit)
Written and Composed by Lee Hazelwood

A modern arrangement of one of the greatest piece’s of American pop. The lyrics are the same and she delivers all the attitude and spunk of the original. It uses more synth than normal and has a cool distorted guy saying ‘walk, walk walk’. It makes it her own. Towards the end horns come in and sound like the horns from SimCity 3000 (if you’ve ever played it) they are very echo-y. Great job with this cover, Yuna-san.

These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ -STUDIO APARTMENT Impluse Groove-

A downtempo remix of her amazing cover. Using bunches of synthizer and a programmed, tropical-feeling beat. She has a bit more time to ad. lib. and does some very interesting ones that add more to this song. It’s a cooling listen if you’re in the mood.


This single is a good one. It’s a refreshing release from Miss Ito and really gives her a chance to do a bit of dancing. I recommend the PV.
