あたしのBerryz工房 favorites ♥♪♪♥

With Berryz Koubou's recent release of "BK Special Best Vol.1" it got me thinking about which songs I would have chose to include on a best of compilation had I the chance to create my own personal collection. So I spent the past couple of days reliving their discography going back to their debut and working my way towards their most current releases and in the end I found that quite a few songs that I chose are also present on "Special Best Vol.1", and while this isn't surprising I did have the urge to expand upon their collection as there are far more favorite songs of theirs that I would include making this imaginary best of collection a two disc set instead of one. In addition to many beloved singles I do seem to favor a lot of BK's coupling with songs on their singles as well as non single album tracks and when I finished my hypothetical favorites list I ended up with 23 songs which on any given day could find their way into a much enjoyed mp3 collection for either the road or home. I really had to urge self control upon myself when choosing the tracks as undoubtably I otherwise would have turned up with a far greater number of songs…..perhaps then making this a box set rather than a best of album compilation in the process!!! 😛

So these are the 23 BK songs that I'm really really endeared to and once again noting that they're far many more songs that could've made this list but things could have quickly gotten out of hand if I indulged upon ever BK song that I ♪♪♥. ^ ^


So all of my BK audio CDs came off the shelf in my effort to find their songs in which I'm most endeared♥ to….and I almost forgot to include their Summer mini album!…as it's kept on the other side of the room due to it's large size which doesn't allow it to fit alongside their other releases. If you live in the UK and frequent the beaches there, there's a chance you may run into Shirow wearing those cute BK beach sandals which come with this box set….while I haven't been brave enough to take them out of their packaging just yet! ^ ^ But in the event that you happen to catch him playing with the BK beach ball then please be sure to snap a photo! =)

  2. Hi Zush! Hmmm…I'm really curious to see what your favorites are too as I know that you've been a very longtime fan of BK. Ah we have similar favorites?! ^ ^ It took me awhile to narrow things down to just these 23 as I wanted to include many more songs but I felt that it may be too much to list all of them and in some sense this dream album would become less effective that way. YesAsia is so much easier on shipping charges and I know it'll definitely be worth the wait! ^o^♪♪

    You know, I read your post last night before I went to bed, and I didn't notice… But while I was at work today, I started thinking that I didn't remember seeing Munasawagi Scarlet in your dream BK compilation.. I dunno. XD Maybe it's just me and my obsession with the guitars in that song… But either way, very interesting compilation! And your BK collection is total win! I've only been listening to them for a little over a year, but I've gotten most of my favourite releases of theirs (and all of their albums). However, I do need to purchase Piriri, Munasawagi, Nanchuu Koi wo… and Special Generation… o_O Hmm… It seems I still have a bunch of my favourites to get. XD I hadn't really written down which ones I don't own… -_-;


  4. I do love that single too and it's just that while I was trying to narrow the list down it was right near the border….it's one of their earlier pvs to feature really advanced choreography too and you're so right about those guitars! ^o^♪♪ "Piririto yukou!" was the first single that got me hooked on them so luckily I didn't need to backtrack too much when I got to the point where I had to have their discography. It's so wacky of me as I did the exact same thing with Ayaya as after watching this little file of her pv of "Momoiro kataomoi" I went online after watching it repeatedly one night to order whatever releases she had out to that point…(sigh….) seems that I'm backtracking so often! :/ Sometimes Ohta has their singles up in bunches for sale and I'm always like wow….such a low price for so many! I wonder who's selling their BK collections as I could never part with any of mine….hmmm if I had to I'd cry! (;´□`)!!

  6. Zush says:

    It's done! It was hard to decide which songs are in and which to leave out of my best of list but anyway there it is now @ B.K.I. Also I have there 23 songs.


  7. I'm wondering if maybe you've told me this before and somehow I've forgotten??? We really do owe our friendship to "Special Generation" and I'm so happy that it was because of such a great song of theirs! It would be really wonderful if you sent them this CD and just think of how you'll be helping to support Riichan too~! ♥ Hmmm….'robotic dinosaur???'…..(goes to see!)


  8. Ah~! Pleo is $349! He's amazing though as he actually wakes up??? Has emotions of his own and they're said to be totally unique in how you interact with him. ^o^ I think I'm too old to be playing with a Pleo but I still want one!!!!


  9. Wow you compiled your favorites really quickly~!! Thank you for taking the time to share as I was just at your place visiting to see your choices and I'm so happy to see so many of the same songs that we both on your list too~♥! Ah yo have 23 too! Sorry I do come up with strange amounts whenever I compile just about anything it seems. 😛


  10. Mikey says:

    Yes, we do! I've noticed there have been a lot of mashups using that video too! 🙂 I keep waiting for MB to make a brief appearance in one of their videos!! 🙂 You have a really good memory. I'm sure I mentioned it before, but it was a while ago..I hope that one day the Princesses will get to meet their Auntie in Hawaii (they go there all the time) and thank you (bows head) properly for the joy and connection to their culture you've brought…I think I will send them the CD! I'm sure they'll love it and we mustn't forget Riichan!! 😛


  11. Mikey says:

    lol! They are a lot of fun! Emma's Mom likes to have Pleo for company when she's working at home… Two or more Pleo's interact with each other when they are close together!www.amazon.com has them for $240, free shipping and no sales tax! About 1/2 of what and AKC puppy goes for… and no feeding or pooping!! hehe They are newborns and learn over time… @@If you are a good girl, I'll get you one for Christmas! (kidding)They have open architecture so you could maybe make him do J-Pop?! ^^Wouldn't that be fun to have your Pleo and Emma's meet??<3>Ponyo! Ponyo!


  12. It's amazing how music can connect people in so many ways and I'm just happy to be able to share some of my passions! That's so sweet that you'll be sending your nieces this album! It's really a great collection and I hope they love it~! You're so awesome sharing so much music and making new BK fans along the way!! \(^o^)/☆I was watching their videos and the Pleo is amazing!!!! I've seen dancing robots but nothing like this before and they say that it actually learns and reacts accordingly?!! Ah free shipping!! And it's so much less there. An AKC puppy poops????…O_o!! Mmmm….I really want one now!


  13. Mikey says:

    I really researched robotic type "pets" and this is the first one that really seemed to please adults and children. I think this will become more and more common as the technology becomes cheaper and more advanced. I kinda want one too! 😉 Then you could found the Hawaiian Pleo Meetup! Maybe the HIP girls would come to see them while they visit… hehe The only "eating" they do is the leaf that comes with them. It gives them "energy' and they are attracted to it… I hear they even play tug of war with it… I think ET will be jealous!! :PPrincesses bow to Auntie MB!! 🙂 If you ever meet them you would swoon! they are just too kawaii and smart.


  14. James says:

    Just want to say I found your blog through Hello!Blog, and it's brilliant! (I check yours almost everyday, sometimes I don't turn my computer, hence the almost)I looked at this and smiled, then cried…. I saw how many BK CD's there are _| ̄|○. I'm only a recent BK convert and am trying to get their back catalogue of Singles and Albums. You just made me realise that It'll be a LONG while before I have 'em all. But luckily I'm patient.You've got some awesome picks in those 23. I liked Piririto yukou! the first time I heard it and was hooked (*^▽^*)


  15. Things advance so quickly with robotics and I'm seen some amazing technology being created in Japan right now with robots that were unimaginable just a few years ago. The Pleo looks amazing and more importantly is really cute~! I'm wondering what happens after the leaf is gone??? 😮 Or does it pretend to eat it…..lol sorry I'm confused. 😛


  16. Hi james! I'm so happy that you joined VOX too so that we can talk here~! (*´∀`*) ♪♪ Thank you so much and you are way too kind!! =) Paul's Hello!Blog is like the center of our international H!P fandom as so many fans frequent his site for his amazing content and he always finds the most amazing collectibles and he's so up to date all the time! ^o^ It's so nice to meet you..o(*´∀`)o゛ yoroshiku ne~♥ I think it's so great that you're collecting all of BK's singles and I know in time you'll be able to get them all for sure just by hearing your passion for them. A lot of times I'll discover a new ♥ for a group and then I'll spend a lot of time too backtracking but when you have it all together it's so gratifying and worth it for sure! ^ ^ Hmm…I'm thinking that we may have some similar BK favorites? It was really difficult narrowing their songs down to only 23 (sorry odd amount I know 😛 ) as I do love and adore so much of their catalog but I think these are really my top tier BK songs…those that really move me the most. Ah~ that's so awesome!!…"Piririto yukou!" was the very first single that I heard by BK too and while watching their pv I totally fell in ♥~!!!


  17. Mikey says:



  18. That's really sad and unimaginable that someone would do something like that. 😦 It should be embraced to have something so advanced in your home and I would welcome it so much….well a Pleo is probably enough for now if I do ever get one. =)Oh that's so smart of them to allow upgrades like that! Just like the new blu-ray players! Although I don't yet own one of those either just yet. Ah~ so he doesn't actually eat the leaf! LOL what was I thinking??? 😛
