Koda Kumi – Can We Go Back

1. Can We Go Back

4. Good☆day (Instrumental)

So through a good friend I found out that Can We Go Back is actually a cover of a Kelly Clarkson song. It was a Japanese bonus track off of her latest album. I listening to this version also to better facilitate my review of this song. Now, on to the review.

The first thing I  noticed about “Can We Go Back” was that it seemed like a slightly lighter version when compared to the original. By that I mean Clarksons version has strong prominent electric guitar and Koda’s version tones that down a little. Both have their strengths and I would consider this a very good cover as Koda makes it her own. I would have liked if Koda made her vocals as strong and fierce as Clarkson seems to but it’s alright regardless.

Score – 8

“Good☆day” is quite a contrast from Can We Go Back with it’s upbeat and pop atmosphere. I liked the beats and the quick pace of the chorus. Even the English line “I’ll be there for you” that is repeated throughout the song was cute. I liked it and the fact that it doesn’t try to be anything other than a short cutesy song.

Score – 8.5

Final Note

Done already? Thank goodness UNIVERSE is coming ❤
