I watched episodes 9 to 12 of Barakamon in one sitting two days ago. I think you could guess right away which song got stuck in my head after that.
[Barakamon OP] Rashisa by SUPER BEAVER
How it got stuck in my head…
Yesterday, I was inside the bathroom, well, taking a bath. I’m the type of person who, regardless of the vocal incompetence, enjoys singing and holding a mini concert in the bathroom (and in her own room, for that matter). I was singing English songs at first, then all of a sudden, the phrase or line of the song–Jibun rashisa tte nanda?–started to play in my head. And since I couldn’t control whichever song suddenly played in my mind, I just went with it and tried my best to sing along the melody that only I could hear. That time, I was just being myself, enjoying the music that is dear to me.
I love this song, and it’s one of my favorite OP from last season, for reasons I won’t elaborate here.
Mind you, it still plays in my head even after I listen to other Japanese songs.
