|DEF. DIVA 2nd Single: LET’S GO Rakuten Eagles
01. LET’S GO Rakuten Eagles
02. LET’S GO Rakuten Eagles (Instrumental)
Although they were judged as another one of those one shot H!P groups, such as Nochiura Natsumi and Gomattou, DEF. DIVA actually released a second single all the way back on March 25th. It was not really a “real” release, as it is only being sold here on the Rakuten Eagles website, but it is a single nonetheless. There is, however, no b-side.
Following in the footsteps of Morning Musume’s single “The Manpower!!!”, LET’S GO Rakuten Eagles was/is being used as the official song of the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles baseball team.
LET’S GO Rakuten Eagles is viewed sometimes as a “chant”, which it surely is. It repeats the same lyrics a lot, follows patterns, and is EXTREMELY catchy. On that note: it’s not a bad chant. It’s quite good. It’s actually not a bad song on its own (a song like this could easily be a normal H!P song) but it’s definitely very fitting as a cheering song for a baseball team. There’s lots of cheering (especially in the chorus) and the lyrics are never afraid to pimp da team, yo. Also, it’s just plain great because it’s by DEF. DIVA, duh. The song is kind of confusing and jumbled up at times, and it could be a wee bit better, I suppose, but overall it’s great. I was just even surprised that DEF. DIVA got a second chance.
Since there’s no b-side, that was a pretty easy review. Do I need to put an overall rating here? Nah. I doubt it. In conclusion, LET’S GO, RAKUTEN EAGLES! ^_^ (is it even baseball season now? I don’t follow sports…)
Guess what? DEF. DIVA is back after this! Sort of. DEF. DIVA is part of the WaT x Hello! Project Volleyball World Championships support group. DEF. DIVA themselves have sung their own version of the song, Ready Go!, for one of the many commercials. No word yet of if they will be releasing it as a single or something else!
