HX Magazine: Music Reviews: Dance Singles: Dreams Come True: “Song of Joy”

by J.L.N.
December 18, 1998

This Japanese pop band makes its U.S. debut with this sparkling upbeat ditty. Driven by the piercing vocal delivery of lead singer Miwa, clubland will no doubt be all over this one, as it brims with the infectious melody and pep that the dance-floor sect loves to groove to. Tony Moran and DJ Jimmy Jam add their powerhouse touch to bring home Miwa’s soaring vocal power and drive this baby to glorious high-energy heights. Its bubble-gum pop flavor only adds to the appeal and helps the song live up to its name. (Virgin)
