The cover's classy, I like it!

I wonder if she picked the songs?

Obviously more for casual fans to catch-up on Ayu's discography for the festive season. I like the idea and I'm happy she's catering to a larger audience than her hardcore fans as PR for her new single.

I just made the playlist in my iTunes.

The songs go nicely together and it's actually a good track list, Days is perfect to kick it off.

I don't expect many fans will pay for this, it doesn't look like these versions are any different to the album/original versions, makes a lovely playlist though, nice selection <3

"Missing" and "appears" are too... warm? Idk I never associated those songs with winter. They seem more like songs you play on a lonely summer night. Same with "Over."

appears is at least lyrically relevant at one point, and the video follows... but they shoulda put '99 Greeting Mix on here instead of the original.

But yeah, "Over" is definitely more lonely warm summer sort of sounding. Close to you was specifically intended to sound like Christmas/Winter, so it's odd to see it not here o_O

The rest of the playlist is pretty much dead-on for me, although I might have put Marionette or M on there instead of Missing, personally.
