Just Like the Day When I Met You — Do You Remember That Day?

Valentines Day is just right down the corner! Next week, I will feature a special post of various songs that were chosen by you, my wonderful readers! Be sure to check it out around next Wednesday!

Today’s song was a popular love song in the late 90s. Yes, it’s another Japanese song (I been meaning to add more variety to this blog once again, just this song has been on the draft pile for a couple of months). But, it is one of my favorite songs!

Thank goodness it’s the weekend where I can drink lots of Aquarius (a Japanese sports drink packed with electrolytes), medicine, and sleep under the air conditioner for long periods of time.

While I am laying in bed and trying to fend off this cold, my companion is Spotify. Song after song resonates from my iPhone as I lay down, closing my eyes to ward off the fatigue.

SILVA, Double, and Sugarsoul
