Music Monday – Magnet [Clear x Dasoku]

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all coping well with your first day of uni! Or for most of us, probably your first week back! :D

Since we have our first official karaoke of the year coming up on this Saturday 5th March (, I thought it would be prudent to post a wonderful duet featuring the talents of Clear and Dasoku, two vocalists from the renowned Japanese video site, NicoNicoDouga.

The song itself is a seductively beautiful journey of forbidden love, explored through metaphorical butterflies, musical monogamy, tinged with repressed desire and unexplainable sub-atomic gravitational forces, that all come together in an eargasmic harmony.

The original song actually wasn’t sung by a real person but instead by two popular vocaloids, Hatsune Miku and Megurine Luka, who helped the song explode to an impassioned height of popularity, allowing for countless remixes and duet pairings all over the Japanese internet. But of course, on a personal level, the Clear and Dasoku one is still the best one I’ve ever heard.
