One thing about Bonnie Pink music videos...the lady seems to love water. Whether it be strutting down a runway in the middle of a squall or swimming about in a pink jumpsuit (that would be "Tonight, The Night", a song that we have yet to cover as of this writing), she and H2O have a good thing going.
And so is the case here with Bonnie Pink's June 2006 21st single, "A Perfect Sky". She took care of both music and lyrics, and the official music video has her dancing in the warm seas of Saipan, a popular destination for the Japanese. It couldn't have been too rough for her there, aside from any danger from roving sharks or jellyfish. As for the song itself, the refrain has that hook which was persistent enough for me to go for the CD single. A past single, "So Wonderful" rather helped in my decision as well.
Although I don't have a perfect grasp on the lyrics, I believe they are about a woman's determination not to let a somewhat middling romance get her down. She deserves some fun time for herself so perhaps that trip to Saipan might do her a world of good.
"A Perfect Sky" became Pink's most successful single. It managed to penetrate the Top 10 on Oricon for the first time in almost 7 years for her, reaching No. 6 (her previous personal best had been her 9th single, "Daisy" from 1999 which peaked at No. 10) and becoming the 72nd-ranked single for 2006.
