Koi wo Shiteiru / Fuyu ga Hajimaru yo
Koi wo Shiteiru / Fuyu ga Hajimaru yo was Every Little Thing’s 33rd single. It was released on October 31, 2007 and reached 7 on the charts with 23,258 copies sold. In all this single has sold 34,394+ copies. Now despite this single being released in the fall, I consider it a winter single as the songs have the beautiful winter vibe to them.

Koi wo Shiteiru the first winter song. After a while I have found the translation, this song, Koi wo Shiteiru is literally I Love. The song begins with Mochida singing beautifully as always and then the instrumental orchestra begins. It’s quite the lovely song once you give it a try. The verses aren’t to catchy but the chorus is and it sounds beautiful. Especially how Mochida sings Koi wo Shiteiru. A wonderful winter ballad song.
Fuyu ga Hajimaru yo feat. Makihara Noriyuki the second, stronger song. This song’s title translates into Winter Has Begun. It begins with the melody of the chorus and that seals it there. This song is my favorite song on the single. It’s really upbeat and sounds a lot happier than the previous song. And like the previous song this song too has a beautiful winter vibe. The chorus of this song is the best and pretty catchy. I have no clue what the featured artist is doing here but that’s okay, the song is still great as ever.
Overall Review: Koi wo Shiteiru / Fuyu ga Hajimaru yo is my favorite single from Every Little Thing. It’s the perfect balance of ballads and pop songs. While the two seem to contrast it makes the single better. Overall the perfect winter single.
