Song Production Information

The stream of piano notes in the middle of this light Jazzy Break Beats track will leave a pleasant impression on you.

Video Production Information

The vocals for the song during the location test sounded like a timid woman who wanted you to lead her somewhere.
One day, they were suddenly swapped out with powerful vocals that sounded like a woman who could climb to great heights.
Since the image of the song had changed, I scrambled to recreate the specifications for the video, and had the two programmers fix things half a day before it was released. I'll never forget the pale complexions on their faces at that time.
