Ouch. My heart was almost broken with a fuckin' sorrow, fuckin' sorrow JASMINE / sad to say average: 7.863 highest scorers: 10.00 @RUNAWAY 9.00 @berserkboi, @evilsin 8.50 @Applause lowest scorers: 6.00 @Macsun, @Trinu 3.0 6.75 @odyism 7.00 @masahiro, @Crisp X, @Ana Raquel highest placement: #35 [TIE] lowest placement: #65 sad to say is JASMINE's debut single and, thus, the first to be released for her debut album GOLD. The song was written by JASMINE and Jeff Miyahara (a very prolific pop producer) and produced by the two and Atsushi (several songs for Aoi Eir). If you couldn't guess from the English in the lyrics, this one is about a break-up. And a bad one at that. As we said in our post for JASMINE, the song first was sent to radio in somewhat unfinished state due to how impressed with it the execs were. The single reached #10 on the Oricon weekly charts and charted for 13 weeks and sold 31,217 copies. It also has been certified Platinum for Chaku Uta Full downloads of over 250,000. evilsin's score: 9.00 evilsin's butthurt corner: Now this one brings me back to the summer of 2009. I remember that people were pretty excited about this release and JASMINE in general. I listened to the full single at my friend's house and she liked it quite a bit as well. Too bad we're not on talking terms anymore... Oh, well. Damn, that profanity in the lyrics does strike a cord, doesn't it? Especially when you don't really hear it that much in Japanese music. Apart from fucking sorrow, we also have kuso (shit) and chikushou (also shit) here. Lovely. Thinking now I think I should have given this a 10, but I guess my one extra score wouldn't do much of a change with this going up only a couple of places. I adore the verses here, they are so dynamic and engaging, not to mention the stellar emotional delivery from JASMINE. It really does sound like she's telling that person to get the fuck out even if she does say that it's been dreadful without them in the chorus. RUNAWAY's score: 10.00 RUNAWAY's thoughts: this song was my other top JASMINE song in and it gets eliminated right after my other fave….but anyway I have a long history with this song. As it was her debut, I got to know JASMINE right from the beginning and I was immediately taken with her voice and lyrics upon my first listen of this song, and it still resonates with me now. It's so sad but so meaningful….WHAT A DEBUT. @berserkboi (9) "Very pretty song!" evilsin's recommendation: RUNAWAY's recommendation: Yes, let's post both b-sides to another single of hers, dddd. It's like we're going in circles at this point.
