Justin Bieber, Gita Gutawa, Yui. Ever wonder what and how these 3 people assembled each other? But wait, never heard about Yui? Oh I should have seen that coming, here’s not a j-pop forum after all.
Yui is a Japanese singer, musician and song writer. She preferred acoustic version of songs and she composed a lot of songs for OST. To all anime lovers, FYI the 5th opening theme song of the anime Bleach is the song ‘Rolling Star’ by Yui and the 5th closing theme song is also by her ‘Life’. I love her songs and been spending hours for the past few weeks to download her tracks.
That’s enough with the intro and promo. Here’s what I have in mind when I tuned in to her songs.
Justin is a 16 year-old boy who is popular with the song ‘One Time’, his voice is boyish and just as sweet as Jesse McCartney’s when he first debuted with the song ‘Beautiful Soul’. In short Justin has a treble voice. Gita Gutawa is a 17 year-old girl who is popular with the song ‘Sempurna’, her voice is slim and high pitch or in short she has a soprano voice. Combining both and you could get the voice of Yui, a 23 year-old young lady. Apart from her music that I fell for, she has quite a clear-cut range of voice. The first time you heard her, you could mistakenly thought it as the voice of a boy who likely yet to hit puberty. And the next tone of hers would be a slender high frequency tone vibes. Within these 2 voices scale; soprano and treble, she could just switch it and even sing by using the note in between. Perhaps this is clearly emphasized in her 5th single ‘Good-bye Days’.
Here’s some list of her tracks that I love most!
2. I remember you
3. Good-bye days
4. Summer songs
5. Day dreamer
7. My generation
And that was it about Yui.
