"Sexy Boy (Soyokaze ni Yorisotte)" (SEXY BOY 〜そよ風に寄り添って〜 Sekushii Bōi ~Soyokaze ni Yorisotte~?, Sexy Boy (Cuddling in the Gentle Breeze)) is the twenty-ninth single of J-pop idol group Morning Musume. It was released on March 15, 2006, in two editions—a normal edition, and a limited edition with five photo cards featuring the members in duos and came in special packaging. The single reached a peak of #4 on the weekly Oricon charts, and lasted in the charts for 8 weeks.[1][2]

Theme, music video and choreography[edit]

As suggested by its title and lyric, the song portrays the "feeling of the speed of a spring whirlwind"; the song's protagonist is a princess cruising over the spring ocean.[3]

The Single V was released on March 29, 2006.[4]

Reina Tanaka is shown modelling the choreography for the PV in additional pictures. Part of this dance, the characteristic "ue ue" (上 上, sometimes written "↑↑"?, "up up") motion of pointing one's index fingers up in the air, is often imitated by fans at concerts.
