Anri -- Wedding Shower

After listening to Anri's (杏里)"Ano Natsu ni Modoritai"(あの夏に戻りたい)as one of the theme songs for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, I decided to get her 18th album from July of that year, "Angel Whisper". And one of the other gifts I got from that album was this track, "Wedding Shower".

Listening to this, I got the image of a summer wedding party (and not the shower) right from the setting-up by the caterers to the alcohol-influenced fun and zaniness at the reception....all done to a funky gospel-and-blues beat whipped by Anri herself. The singer also worked with Yukinojo Mori (森雪之丞)to create the lyrics. The way it sounds, I think anyone would love to be invited to this party, especially one with the band that Anri has here.
