Suki to Iu no wa Rock Daze!  [Type A] (SINGLE+BLU-RAY) (Japan Version)
The power of love
August 31, 2022 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
The endearingly upbeat tune of Nogizaka46's 30th single Suki to Iu no wa Rock Daze! begins with a decidely downbeat line: "The person I hate the most in the world is me." Self-loathing thoughts of stagnancy and having no ambitions or expectations for the future pour out unassumingly against a mellow melody laced with energetic pop rock beats. These negative emotions are flipped by the discovery of a love that makes one sparkle.

While the power of love may seem like a typically cheesy topic for a pop song, Suki to Iu no wa Rock Daze! throbs with a heartfelt touch of sensitivity as it reflects on the trials of growing up and a love that encourages self-love. The song's sentiments are perfectly matched by its bright and bubbly, yet warm and delicate melody composed and arranged by Nomura Yoichiro, who has composed a number of 46 group songs including Nogizaka46's Yoake made Tsuyogaranakutemoii.

For a love song with a different vibe, the B-side track Under's Love brings a touch of Latin allure. Common across all editions of the single, the song is performed by the Under members, and the lyrics, by Akimoto Yasushi per usual, don't hesitate to constantly mention "Under's." Under's Love manages to bring together seemingly disparate parts, from dance beats to Latin guitar, into a spirited and unexpected love song that makes you want to sashay along.
