The below comments are read from the recent release of the Complete Singles Collection notes:
As we all fans know, 赤い鳥逃げた is the 12 inch single released after ミ・アモレ, with different lyrics.
However, I guess not many of us may know that actually, when the lyricist 康珍 化 first received the melody from the composer 松岡直也, the initial lyrics composed was actually 赤い鳥逃げた instead of ミ・アモレ.
After reviewing the initial lyrics of 赤い鳥逃げた, 康珍 化 felt that the lyrics was quite ‘weak’ for a single release. Hence, he re-wrote the lyrics based on the stage of the Carnival in Rio (Brazil) – thus the birth to the lyrics of ミ・アモレ.
Quite an interesting discovery for me, as a big fan of ミ・アモレ〜! =)
