Interviewer: How did Ishiguro Aya from Morning Musume get involved in "Puraton No Nageki"?
Nemoto: As Kouda and I were singing this song just for fun, the image of the song started transforming and developing rapidly. We thought this song was suited for a musical, so that was the direction we decided to take. Actually, there is no such musical as "Waga Taikutsu Na Jinsei". It’s an imaginary musical that we created as a concept, and we decided to feature this song for that. It’s all for a good joke. So if anyone comes up to me and asks me about where to watch the musical etc., I have to say, sorry, but there is no such thing in this world because it’s just a concept.
This is a song about a man and a woman discussing what love is. As the discussion progresses, it will start to sound more like an exchange of philosophical views. I wanted to add as many people into the song to make the discussion more exciting. Unfortunately, we are a bunch of scruffy men, and we needed some feminine voice. It involves lots of talks and not much of a singing, so we began searching for the ideal female singer. Our first choice was Moritaka Chisato or Noriko Kato because they are more familiar sound to us, but then we thought about Morning Musume as well. And that was how easy it was. Not only Aya came down to our recording studio to sing the track, but also we recorded her random chatter to use it as Sound Effects. So we recorded her various sound into DigitalAudioTape. I’m sure the tape is a highly valued item for Morning Musume fans. Lol.
