This is how PVs should be made – Buono ‘OUR SONGS’

February 1, 2010 at 1:07 AM 6 comments

Buono set a totally different standard for music videos under H!P label. A run of good luck started with ‘My Boy’ and continued with ‘Take it Easy’, ‘Bravo Bravo’ and now ‘OUR SONGS’. The song is mediocre (or needs more time) but PV excels on so many levels. Lets skip the song for the time being and focus on the goodies. And the main goody of this PV is of course Airi 🙂 Beware AIRI SPAM!

with a bonus gif of utter cuteness 😀

Ok, now that I drooled all over the keyboard we can go on with the review 🙂

Dance and costumes are pure Buono and I doubt that there’s a need for explanation. Rottara Rottara was an exception but a really cute one so I’ll forgive them 😀 PV is a standard dance shot plus Close ups and some random randomness along the way. There’s no safari, no playing games and killing mosquitoes or anything like that. Plain dance shot and close ups. So what makes this PV a model for all other H!P PVs? Dynamism and personality.


All three of Buono members are front girls in their original units (plus Airi is almost a soloists XD). They work for Tsunku since early childhood (it sounds nasty) and know how to behave in front of a camera. A PV with their static faces on screen would be a huge success.


Cameraman overdid himself this time. All the angles, different settings even for one dance move, close ups with girls moving on a platform (a crane? XD), change of setting in the middle of the PV constitute the awesomeness of this video. Camera is never static for long.

Observe the background.

It’s not too extravagant to have several settings and angles for close ups and dance shots? ‘OUR SONGS’ have them. Is it really too much to ask? A plot would be nice as well as some costume change but I think that the way of shooting this PV is revolutionary (in H!P cafe).

This gif hasn’t been manipulated. It’s the way it is in the video and in my opinion it’s a very creative way of introducing a new setting.

One thing bothers me though. But I guess it can’t be helped.

MiyaSmile. Dreadful :O


Momo is surely a bitch. Don’t look at me! She stated it by herself!

I LOVE t-shirts like that on idols 😀 It’s a ROFL. Hey, Momo. You need more Engrish t-shirts? Here you are XD

Plenty to choose from 🙂


Listening to: C-ute ‘That’s the POWER’

    Hmm.. the MV of fail vs the MV of win? I see this comparison is the purpose of today’s posts.

    Wait a minute, Mano’s MV also has different backgrounds. One is white, and one is purple 😛

    I am not too excited about the MV, however I like the song itself, and the Happy Foreeveer B-side 😀

    And pic #3.. now that’s pure love ❤

      It wasn’t my initial thought but it surely turned out like that XD
      Comparing Mano to Buono seems pointless. Mano isn’t even a true opponent 🙂
      I merely wanted to review some PVs but Momusu would have to wait until tomorrow. I’m far to sleepy 🙂 Chect out their full PV 🙂

      Hehe, we might actually see her in a shirt like that. Who knows XD

        Buono would win all such comparisons anyway 😛

        And by pic #3 I meant #3 from the top. Of course. ROFL. I think I need to point that out XD

          Oh sorry ^^ It’s because I titled the pics of Momo’s shirts with numbers 😀
          Yeah, Airi knows so many shades of smiles 🙂 I need to make a gif of this one someday.

    Woah nice change on your blog, it looks nice!

    I found it quite boring, but it’s a nice close up + dance shot!

      Thanks 🙂 Glad you find it nice 🙂 I needed a change 🙂
      Well, it’s not Tokaikko Junjou. What’s your favourite PV?
