ロマンスの途中 (Dance Cover) Trivia

– As I said in the video description, this was the dance chosen by the scavenger hunt winner(s), wearerealizefabulous. They actually participated in my “LOVE Machine” collaboration a while back, too! =D

– To be honest, when this single was first released, I wasn’t very impressed. The song didn’t interest me much, and I really didn’t care for the dance. However, as is often the case, I came to love this song after I learned the dance~. ^__^

– I was actually debating as to whether or not I should include this dance on the list of choices for the scavenger hunt winner. I disliked the arm-pumping move they used quite often in this dance because it sort of reminded me of “Massara Blue Jeans.” After looking at it a little more, though, I realized that it’s a bit closer to the movement used in Morning Musume’s “Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa…” dance, so I decided to include it.

– I learned Tomoko’s part first. Most of Sayuki’s part was easy enough to pick up, but some of the steps in the beginning (that are the opposite of Tomoko’s) would trip me up because I’d want to step differently than I was supposed to. XD

– I decided to add Karin’s little part near the end because I loved the emotion (or perhaps “attitude”) she put into the movements for that last “Yabai!” =D

– I was totally at a loss for any outfit for this dance. orz I own one grey skirt, but it has pockets and doesn’t drape quite like I would have wanted for this dance, so I decided to use a bunch of navy blue instead of grey.

– I more or less gave up on lip-syncing most of the song. XD Lately, it seems like I focus mostly on the standout lines instead of the entire song. (^__^”) I should really start learning lyrics again…

– My timing was mega-off in the beginning. orz It’s a bit tricky trying to get the timing right without a beat or lyrics (and without the same number of people dancing). (^__^”)

– This song and dance reminds me very much of “The Matenrou Show.” Definitely.

– I really wish I could have fit three parts in for more of the dance (particularly the dance break), but I just didn’t have enough room for the amount of movement called for in this dance. =( I would have liked to have the opposite moves between the similar moves.

– You know what I do to force myself to take a break between bad takes? I watch YouTube videos. XD As I was cooling down after a few unusable takes for this dance, I watched some Good Mythical Morning videos. Whee~!

– Not exactly a related note, but you guys! I can totally feel one of my adult canines coming through my gums! You can actually see a little bit of it! The treatment is workiiiinnng~!!! =D I can’t wait to get my braces off. I will eat all of the cereal… all of the trail mix… all of the pizza crusts…

Okay, I think that’s about it for this one. I’ve been awake for quite a while now, but I don’t want to mess up my sleep schedule, so I might try to watch a movie to stay awake a bit longer. Maybe House of Wax with Vincent Price~… or Stephen King’s Silver Bullet… or maybe I’ll just end up falling asleep before I even put a movie on. XD

Thanks for reading and watching~!
