Indeed ^^ and of course there is a way she interprets things in her songs, even though RED LINE sounds pretty happish, I find it quite sad, it has been a while since I was able to relate to an Ayu song like this.

Exactly.
It's another kinda "sad" sounding song but it brings an optimistic message which is great.
The lyrics (and ayu) are really true.

I don't even sense any sadness in RED LINE, she sounds really happy in it and when I listen to it I feel happy. It's just a feel-good song to me.
I REALLY wish the making-ofs were longer, omfg. For some reason it seems like they keep getting shorter and shorter.

It's not really how it singing, it's more of how her singing correlates with the arrangement (which is a huge part) but yeah, not sad as depressing, more melancholic.
It's not a sad song though, it's optimistic and it's great.

Hooray for You were... being #1 on Itunes! But does anyone know why You were... and BALLAD are listed as separate singles? RED LINE isn't even for sale.

they're selling a special limited / serial numbered box at the countdown live containing all three versions of the single, in a special box.

blah. i'm going to have to sell my already purchased singles, because i want the box. haha.

*just kidding. you can only buy one per person, so my roommate can't buy me one T_T.

caution, BIG picture of the sales area~
