I saw the band SHISHAMO play "Kimi no Tonari ni Itai kara" (Because I Want To Be By Your Side) last week on "Uta Kon"（うたコン）and thought it as sunny as those yellow tulips that I provide in the thumbnail photo above for sunny tunes, so here I am with it.
Actually, I think the trio's latest single which was released last week on October 16th would make for a happy-go-lucky theme song for an anime, but actually it was used earlier in the year for the 2019 NHK All-Japan School Choir Competition. It also had its time as the monthly song in the network's "Minna no Uta"（みんなのうた）series.
Written and composed by vocalist/guitarist Asako Miyazaki（宮崎朝子）, the music video gives the heartwarming focus on a few content couples in various stages of life. We should all be so lucky.
