Tomorrow’s song is basically a fun little music video about the life of a single mother and her son. Quite a nice little video that will lift your spirits up when having a bad day!
The story is not particularly deep for its short run, as you will mostly see the mom and her little boy’s day progress from early morning to bedtime. This starts with them waking up and eating breakfast, to taking a walk in the park and so on. All scenes that here are fun to watch, as they both happily enjoy their day. There was one scene where the mom seemed
to get a sad phone call. I wasn’t sure what it was about, perhaps her boyfriend stood her up, or she didn’t get that one job she needed, but after spending time with her son she knew it would turn alright in the end. The video helps to remind us of the things we may take for granted, and is all in all a very happy go lucky story, certainly nothing new by any means, but a fun watch none the less.
The artwork is pretty fair I guess, though not really up to par with most 2005 titles. The backgrounds can range from nice and colorful, to lightly drawn and kinda bland. The characters themselves do stand out above them though, so this could have been done intentionally on some scenes, in order to keep your eyes on the characters. While the whole video quality is a bit on the low side, it certainly isn’t the worst you would see. And honestly, I really dug the character design in this, what with their soft tender facial expressions.
A great happy J-pop beat plays throughout the video, and remains so until it ends., doesn’t really loop or get repetitive. While some may find it to be a bit on the childish side, it does complement the on screen scenes to a "T." Certainly not the happiest beat out there, but it more than works for this video.
Well the mom and son never talk, and mostly just smile at each other for the major part of the video. But the chemistry I felt from them was great, its a special kind of feeling that can only come from a mother and her child, and does implement this affect very well, I really could feel the connection that these two shared! It really gives you a sense that a single parent can truly make it in life!
Bottom Line: 7/10
I can’t promise you you’ll love this video, as some might find it too unrealistic or even a bit childish to enjoy. However, this is a great title that will put you in a good mood when you might be having a bad day. Whether your watching it to get good memories of the way your childhood may have been, or perhaps only wish all of ours could be as happy as their’s was. I think most of us will agree that its a great video that will leave you with a smile on your face after viewing it. That even though life may be troubling at times (the scene with the mom), we will always have tomorrow to look forward to!
