Since the song "Thank You" became a big hit in many countries of the world, it has become Daido's signature composition at every live performance ... But few people know that gentle and soulful, it was inspired ... by times of depression, which the singer fell into after loss of your own home.


In terms of critical reception, most critics described "Thank You" as "a very touching and soft ballad, the gem of a No Angel album..."

“Thank you for a great job. It really, really hurts…” commented one critic.

The video was filmed by Dave Meyers in January 2001.
