Just read on the Mixi news feed that Akko, the lead vocalist for the band My Little Lover, got re-married to a non-celebrity, so my congratulations go out to the happy couple. And I'm going with the band's 6th single, "Yes ~ free flower" today on the blog.
I remember the music video which went with "Yes". It's too bad that it doesn't seem to exist on Youtube or elsewhere on the Net since I recall the excerpts of it which showed up on the commercial for the single. It looked pretty trippy and eclectic with Akko in heavy eye makeup and a huge fur coat squirming around while she creamily breathed out the words. There was something about the song that reminded me of Fleetwood Mac with that steady groovy rhythm. Also, the lyrics expressed the embrace of those feelings and sensations surrounding the end of a romance.
Released in December 1996, the words and music were by Akko's ex-husband and fellow bandmate, Takeshi Kobayashi（小林武史）. It hit No. 1 (My Little Lover's final No. 1 to date) and went Double Platinum. It is also a track on the band's 2nd album, "Presents" which came out in March 1998 and hit No. 2 on the album charts.
