Stargazing: Yuki ni Negai wo - Nakamura Eriko

It's finally here, the end of 2013. As I await the final rotation of the Earth for the year, I'm getting one last chance to appreciate the passing holiday season.

So while it may not be Christmas anymore, let's jump back to THE iDOLM@STER's most festive album, "Christmas For You!". Resembling the "WINTER SPECIAL" album with its perfect collection of songs for this time of year, it was hard to pick just one song to share. However, in this case of single-choice necessity, today's song is a classic for me. When listening to its melody, it emits this melancholic tone. Scope out the lyrics though, and you'll find it speaks of sweet things about Christmas. For mixing two opposing elements so well, it gets my vote.
