"Pyoko Pyoko Ultra" Is an Underrated Song & You Will See Why
“Pyoko, Pyoko Ultra” or Bouncy, Bouncy Ultra is the best of the lowest selling single in the career of J POP group Morning Musume. It is this group’s 48th major single released in 2012. It baffles me as to why this song is currently their lowest selling single. It could be because of the silly feel of this song and that is what may turn fans off but this song really is one of my favorite Morning Musume songs ever. It does not have the Spanish style feel of a song such as Kimagure Princess but the atmosphere is very much a happy one.

The song lyrically also is about a girl that cannot stick to anything to be motivated enough to finish whatever task is on her agenda. But she does realize that if girls want to fall in love, they must polish themselves a bit more, become more refined and classy. But when they get into the swing of things, then they can bounce up and down literally in excitement as they are all set to experience what some may call a very rough world. She thinks that girls that want to fall in love should be relaxed and expect to be treated with kindness. She vows not to be tempted by midnight snacks or ramen noodles though there may be humor in these lyrics as well.
