Days (5:03)

Cover of NEXT LEVEL

From NEXT LEVEL and 3 other releases

“Days” (From the 2008 single “Days/GREEN”, and the 2009 album “NEXT LEVEL”) moves on to the much-loved winter ballad genre. Despite the fact that is song is not as groundbreaking or memorable as her epic ballads, this song manages to convey Hamasaki’s feelings in a sweet and simple manner. It also contains an endearing quality, where the composition carries a nostalgic quality, riddled with a melancholic tone. Naturally the instrumentals include the much loved winter bells. At the same time the instrumentals are quite mellow, allowing Hamasaki’s vocals to display their full range of emotions, especially in the chorus. Therefore this song accurately captures the essence of winter and Christmas. Furthermore it has a strong replay value.

“Days” was the song chosen to be performed on variety shows in December 2008 promoting the single (Days/GREEN) . This song was probably chosen since it was more likely to capture the hearts of people and was more fitting for the holiday season, due to it being a winter ballad. Luckily for her fans, Hamasaki’s performances have improved, despite of her hearing problems. Her vocals were usually spot on and naturally she made use of her vibrato once again. What was also appealing was that Hamasaki wore a lot of gorgeous gowns and beautiful accessories while performing this song.

The lyrics are really touching in an innocent and heartfelt manner. Hamasaki talks about how she cherishes every little aspect about this special person but is quite embarrassed of admitting it.
