Trivia[]

  • The first press of the single came with the application flyer for the 4th Morning Musume & Michiyo Heike prodigy audition. This would spawn Sheki-Dol and Matsuura Aya.
  • Nakazawa's first single after graduating from Morning Musume, and also her first release using her real name; 中澤裕子 (as opposed to her stage name 中澤ゆうこ).
  • This single is Nakazawa's only singles released in a thick CD case (as opposed to the regular slim case), with a booklet that folds out to a 30cm x15cm sheet (with pictures of Nakazawa on one side and the lyrics on the opposite side).

Interview[]

Interview
Nakazawa’s comment about the single, in a 2008-interview: "'Futarigurashi' is such a difficult song to sing. I actually told this in the past but I didn’t like this song very much. I couldn’t sing it well. I was really self-conscious about myself as a solo artist after graduating from Morning Musume, and I felt like I had to hurry up and prove the different side of Nakazawa Yuko and with many other complicated feelings. I can’t describe it too well, but I remember I had heavy opinion about my costume as well. Look at the photo. Beautiful, isn’t it? You see how important the lighting is, right? You see, my audience? This is a photo, a work of art. Staff’s effort and energy was collected and gathered together to create this piece.[…] I was in such a bad mood! (lol) But why? Why? I remembered as I was looking at this smiling photo of mine. You see, I am smiling on the outside, but I was furious in the inside. Isn't photography a scary thing? (lol) Yeah, I remember now. But I still wonder why I was so angry though."[1]
