2017 Hello! Project Review: Country Girls

A lot was going on last year with several graduations and member rotations and additions. However, it was a pretty good year for Hello! Project music. A lot of great singles and music videos were released. Join me as I look back on 2017 and rank my top three favourite songsmusic videos and single outfits from each group.

The fifth featured group is Country Girls. Check out my previous rankings for C-ute, Morning Musume ’17, ANGERME, and Juice=Juice as well!

SONGS

  1. Peanut Butter Jelly Love

Country Girls only released one song before they were downgraded to a subgroup. This song was Momoko’s graduation song and was written by my favourite Peruvian-Japanese singer, Eric Fukusaki. It’s a cute song that fits Momoko’s cute image.

  1. Good Boy Bad Girl

This song is one of my least favourite Country Girls songs at the moment. I liked it at first, but it quickly became tedious.

MUSIC VIDEO

 

  1. Peanut Butter Jelly Love

My favourite scenes of the video were the ones in the science lab. While I still question its relevance to the concept and lyrics, it added to the overall cuteness of the video.

  1. Good Boy Bad Girl

Seeing these cute girls play a “bad girl” role was sort of funny to watch. I could not take them seriously while they posed by the motorcycles with scowls on their faces. The only member that somewhat suited this concept was Risa.

CHOREOGRAPHY

  1. Peanut Butter Jelly Love

 

I love this dance so much! It is a cute and straightforward dance that fans can follow along with while they perform the song live.

  1. Good Boy Bad Girl

I am still shook by the “kiss” between Chisaki and Mai at the beginning of the dance, but that’s the only part of the dance that I really remember.

OUTFITS

  1. Peanut Butter Jelly Love

I’m not a huge fan of any of the outfits for the single. However, I really like the pastel dresses a lot more than the black and white costumes worn for “Good Boy Bad Girl.”

As I mentioned above, I am not a huge fan of the black and white outfits.

Next time, I will review my Kobushi Factory favourites!
