Well the year is drawing to a close and we can call safely assume that Ai won't be releasing any more singles this year. Tongue

And that begs the question, what is your favourite Ai single of 2007??

I listened to Pocket for the first time today and I have to say I am incredibly impressed.

Personally I still haven't decided what my favourite single is yet, but it definitely isn't PEACH/HEART.

PEACH and HEART sold the most because it was double A-side and it had a drama tie-in, and PEACH is an enjoyable song but not much seperates it from the likes of Frienger, but still, an enjoyable song nonetheless. HEART for me was just a tad boring.

CHU-LIP is exciting because as we can see from the tour Ai is trying to make it like her next Sakuranbo and it also features Ai doing some choreography for the first time (SMILY doesn't count!) and the dance is just really cute and awesome and the song, really does make me happy. The coupling track kimi ni kaeru. is good as well even if the bridge is odd and her vocal isn't to my liking.

Pocket is just amazing. Best ballad in a while after the struggle to hit the high notes in Kumuriuta wrecked the song for me, she pulls off Pocket really well, even the high notes. It's a really nice and easy song to listen to and it's just what I need. After the unconventional Renai Shashin, (ok maybe unconventional is extreme but for me it was really different) Pocket is just a really nice sound. Ticket's piano intro was really promising but then it ends up sounding like her usual mid-tempo b-side. Still good. Tongue LOVE - LIFE CiRCLE is awesome as well. So cute!

I hope I can make my mind up soon. It's really troubling! Confused

I loved all the singles this year. Tongue
CHU-LIP is very good, it's one of my favorite upbeat songs. (and my 2nd Ai-chin song!) Giggle I just wish the PV wasn't that disturbing. Catfish Kimi ni Kaeru was very nice. I especially liked the ending.
PEACH is probably my favorite upbeat song by Ai. It's happy, cute, and summery. Boogie
HEART is very pretty and calm, the ending was nice. Love
I enjoyed the winter feel in Pocket, it's a very sweet song. Wink I just wish it was a little longer. Shifty
Ticket was cute, I love the chorus, and the winter feel in this song is also very nice. Smile
LIFE - LOVE CiRCLE was Ai's first full English song. Laughing I love how incredibly cute this song is. Grin
Overall, I think PEACH / HEART was her best single this year. Nod

Pocket is my favourite Ai-chan's single of 2007.
Ai-chan sings this song in a very emotional way and I love it!!

But I think that the other singles are very good too!!! Nod

All of her 2007 singles were amazing in my opinion but I'd have to say Pocket is my favorite. The lyrics of the song are really cute and seeing as winter is my favorite season the wintery feel of the song is a huge plus. I also fell in love with Ticket. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan of LIFE-LOVE CiRCLE, I didn't like the english and the lyrics were a bit too repetitive.

I did enjoy PEACH / HEART but I prefer the ballads to the upbeat songs.

CHU-LIP was nice (I totally agree on the PV, it needed to be a little less disturbing xD ) and I really loved the B-side Kimi ni Kaeru.

great poll!
i liked all of ai's singles this year too!
my two favorite songs by ai are HEART and POCKET, both from this year. Love

CHU-LIP c/w Kimi ni Kaeru:
CHU-LIP is a crazy song that i can listen to only when i'm feeling crazy myself.
i love Kimi ni Kaeru. The guitar and vocals go together perfectly.

at first i didn't like PEACH very much, but after watching her performance at a-nation '07 and reading the lyrics, it's grown on me. i love the lyrics, they are so funny and cute. Giggle
HEART was the first song that i ever heard by ai and also my favorite! some may find it boring and somewhat repetitive, but for me, it creates a feeling of nostalgia but with a very light, content sentiment.

Pocket c/w Ticket:
Pocket is amazing. I even made a piano solo arrangement for it! 'Nough said.
Ticket is a really nice piano intro that cascades into a cheery winteryness with a light guitar accompaniment. Definitely a solid B-side.

I voted CHU-LIP because the ska sound is really groovy, and I got a real kick out of the PV. Pocket/Ticket would be second for me. PEACH wasn't bad, but HEART wasn't very exciting for an A side, in my opinion.

Even though it looks a bit like Kumuriuta it's still the best single of 2007 Smile

Definitely Pocket for me, since the song itself is really nice, and the coupling songs are nice too Smile
My favorite song in the single is LIFE- LOVE CiRCLE- since its really cute, and the song is quite catchy.
Overall, I think this single is quite strong!

My favourite is Pocket. I like ballads more than any other types of songs and Pocket is just perfect for me!

I loved the PV and the funky sound of the song! The dance ftw Giggle However, the song is sometimes grating on the ears, with the loud guitar and all. It's not a song I listen to a lot because of that.
Kimi ni Kaeru was a nice accompaniment, I liked it a lot.

PEACH was a fun, summery song and I had liked it from the beginning. It's an upbeat song that doesn't squeak or get too crazy. The PV was so funny too Laughing
HEART was such a pretty midtempo song, I love walking around listening to it. It's very sweet and calming, The PV was nice, I liked how mature Ai-chin looked and the Renai Shashin style.

Pocket is an amazing ballad. Love listening to it. The piano solo in the beginning is just beautiful. The PV was so sweet, but it sort of fit my expectations TOO much, if that makes any sense. Confused I guess I wanted to be more surprised.
Ticket is a great B-side, but it sounds a lot like her other B-sides. However, it doesn't sound too similar and manages to create a different feeling. So I really like it.
LIFE-LOVE CiRCLE is fun and fresh, and I think it's quite cute in terms of the melody. Ai's Engrish, however, really diminishes my enjoyment for it. It's just...I dunno.

Looking at these singles, I think Pocket is my favorite, mainly because it is something I can listen to in many different situations. In terms of vocals and composition, I find that Ai-chin shines in this single. Overall, 2007 has been a great year for Ai-chin, I think, and I hope that 2008 will bring more fantastic singles like this year's. Love

I like the Pocket single the most. Pocket sounds nice, but Ticket is even better.

I didn't really like Peach, Heart was better. The new version for Renai Shashin was nice too.
Chu-lip was funny, Kimi na Kaeru was quite good.

*It seems that the second track from all her 2007 singles were better than the first track.
