Hatsune Miku x Pharrell Williams

Miku-PharrellWilliams-Remix-1

Hatsune Miku has recently “starred” alongside R&B artist Pharrell Williams in a new music video, marking Miku’s latest mainstream US triumph – and serving as yet another stepping stone in the virtual diva’s quest for world domination.

The music video showcases Miku, Pharrel Williams and Livetune dancing to a remixed version of “Last Night, Good Night” (originally composed by Livetune) as illustrated by contemporary artist Takashi Murakami.

The original song in comparison:

While not the first instance of Miku appearing with mere humans, an appearance with a top tier US R&B artist is likely an important first, more so with her impending collaboration with reigning queen of US pop Lady Gaga.

    Blech, the original is such a beautiful song, the remix on the other hand is pure crap. The mood of the song is destroyed and because of that Miku's vocals seem completely out of place.

    Agreed. The original song was serene and flowed elegantly. The remix seems to be intended to have a very "chilled out" vibe, but it just didn't really work in my opinion. Came out just a messy mix of a conflicting melody and beat, with vocals that just come across as squeaky and out of place.

    Could have at least picked a more suitable song for mixing in the style he was going for surely?

    To those who are not fans of Vocaloid, the remix truly sucks.

    He could have just used "Spinal Fluid Explosion Girl" or "This is the Happiness and Peace of Mind Committee"

    > the original is such a beautiful song

    Really?
    I've never understood why people like Hatsune Miku songs so much. I love her character designs, but I've always found the tracks of her atrocious.

    I think Vocaloids are amazing tech, but the singing from them still sounds like complete shit.

    Have you listened to "Finder" or "Packaged"? Two songs that could NOT sound so good if it was NOT Hatsune Miku.

    Well musical tastes vary, and it's not like all vocaloid songs sound good. Most probably don't to most people. Even I only like a few out of the countless number that exist.

    Is heavy breathing what he considers a "remix"?

    Regardless, Hatsune Miku with peek-a-boo bangs is hella cute.

    If anyone knows of a remix of something that is worth a damn, please let me know. I've yet to be introduced to one. And not a 'new artist rendition of an old song' but a real remix. This is probably the only one I've heard that adds something to the original in an interesting way recently.

    Even then it's not really something that is standalone awesome.

    Most "anime lovers" won't like this, or any R&B for that matter. They're all obsessed with J-pop, Rock, etc. Btw the 1st Eureka Seven OP will forever be the king of soul in anime OST's

    uhhh, pretty much every major song in the past 40 years has been in some regards a remix of something else. Go watch "Everything is a Remix".

    Though you probably don't listen to much electronic music or Hip Hop, which are entirely based on the act of remixing. When a Electronic track is released, it's generally released with 2-5 remixes, which generally add too/eclipse the original.

    Try the album Unhappy Refrain. It's a Vocaloid album centred round Miku, and I actually prefer the remixed versions to the original.

    I honestly think that last night good night is not the song for this guy, I am just saying maybe he would have done better with a more livelier song. In summary nice pv but the song is out of place nice try though. The original is easy better.

    Really liked the model and dancing, but I honestly didn't like the remix. It just didn't mix very well with the song, maybe he should have picked a less somber song than last night, good night

    I agree with you. Something like the song yellow or over16bit should match his style though.but yeah the models are nice just the style of the song is out of place.

    I like seeing all the morons scream weeaboo just because someone thinks a song is crap. Is someone not allowed to think something is crap? If that's the case what names do we have for all the asians who like that garbage Lady Gaga sings or dye thier hair blonde like a white person? Just saying...think before you speak and call people names for something stupid.

    It honestly wasn't too bad. The video was cute enough. I'm not really too into Miku or Williams but this wasn't bad. It wasn't great either. You wee boos need to quit raising a stink about it. Acting like it violates a religous icon or some sh** like that ffs.
