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.
