エルダークラブから。。。Dear ファンのみな様メセッジ/ 自分の記憶 =)

Surely I would have loved to have seen Ayappe, Sayakasan and Asukasan present for the final festivities of the Elder's Club graduation and with all three being either original or second generation members surely it would have been both significant and symbolic had their presence been felt~.

With Hello!Blog's recent all member poll (I have Paul Thomas' very first personal Momusu member ranking later in this post from March 2007 via e-mail) I later realized the errors of my ways in the way in which I approached the poll as my *feelings* for members were sought after in more of confined state rather than in a larger and much broader vision which so should have been my approach (´⌒`。). For sure if I had a redo, Yukosan without question as well as other elder members would have ranked very high and with Yukosan in particular, she will forever be the everlasting model of what mentoring with an iron fist is all about! XD Her approach to the newer generations were always as an elder would look upon the "youth of today" so to speak often with hilarious and priceless results! =) And while Hello! Project may or may not see such a premium show and premium showcase for their members such as the wonderous Hello! Morning ever again it will forever represent all that is possible with the right idols, producers, writers, creativity, timing and yes~…..wacky batsu games!!!! ( ̄▽ ̄)♥

But getting back to the all inclusive H!P member list….the all time list…..Hello!Blog's top 10….I have failed..(´⌒`。)…..so I took a bit of a trip down memory lane after the Elder's Club fan messages below in taking a look at how my favorite member lists evolved over the years, but while I've been a fan since February 1998 when I ordered "Morning Coffee" as a "blind" purchase not knowing them yet but being hooked ever since~!…my earliest favorite member list was written on October 25th, 2002….and then I've included a couple of favorite H!P song lists from awhile back.

And now…here for one last time as H!P members, the Elder's Club sends fans worldwide their thanks and love~…

My early Momusu member rankings…

~Surely if these were re-written today there would be changes…..with Nono & Konkon being much higher, but as these lists represent moments in time forever frozen, doing so would completely defeat the purpose of these recollections.~ Familiarity with members also comes into play as I lived through the debut and growth of the entire H!P and Momusu in real time from early 1998 being able to watch them grow individually as girls, idols, performers and professionals…..so some of the then newer members definitely would rank higher or differently today in hindsight. =)

Aichan moves to #1 after Nacchi's graduation from Momusu…. and the reign of Kamei nears as she moves from 12th to 5th……….. XD But the reign of Aichan would last for many seasons with Rikachan always nearby. In some ways I've forgotten how I felt about each member individually back then and this is now just refreshing my memory to its fullest. =)

And shortly after I would meet Paul Thomas at Hello!Blog and here's his first list that I believe he sent to me via e-mail back then……..before the arrival of his amazing member polls~!

3/3/2007

Paul Thomas' Momusu ranking is just below….I think it was his first. Paul please correct me if my recollection of this being your very first Momusu favorite members list is not your first. 😛

From here I think I posted just one more Momusu favorite members list before using Hello!Blog's polls instead, but at the moment I can't seem to locate it on my blog (>_<); …….and on October 8th, 2007 Kamei would take over my #1 ranking with Aichan moving to #2. And the rest of my member lists are documented as Hello!Blog polls from Paul's wonderful site with beautiful graphics always~.

~♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪~

Hmmm….and here are two favorite H!P song lists from 2002 & 2005. I would literally spend hours a day up to an entire week thinking these out near year's end back then in order to be able to type out a favorite songs♪~. ^ ^ And along the way I actually wore out one of my portable CD player's laser as I would repeatedly go through songs over and over in trying to compare them to one another in terms of which I liked better, often with so much difficulty in choosing……is this one better? or that one or should this be higher? that one lower or this other one in between? XD……rip my dear Sony CD player~ (´⌒`。)……your laser truly paid for the making of these lists. Here are just two of them but I'd make one every year at year's end until I decided that it was just too time consuming and difficult as each following list would be a commulitive listing keeping the previous songs in place while adding in between…higher and lower my newest favorite♥ songs from the new year~…….and just the thought of sacrificing another CD laser would be just too much to bear~ (;゜□゜)!! But on second thought I wouldn't need a CD player anymore as digital files are now the norm…..so no more lasers to worry about! =)

Morning Musume song favorites (10/20/2002)

As you'll notice there are songs included which aren't Momusu songs as the general rule of thumb would be to be able to include H!P songs outside of Momusu as long as a member in that group or unit who released the song was at one time a member of Momusu…current or past. Again these lists would most likely look different had I done them today but for these moments frozen in time here they are forever preserved to look back on……. ^ ^

  3. LOL when I originally did these song♪♪ lists there was yet to be iPods or any other mp3 players …..well I'm still really low tech when it comes to these but surely I wouldn't put another CD player's laser through the same strain ever again! 😛 These lists took me so long to complete back then…..I just wanted so much to do them thoroughly and honestly without cutting any corners….so I would replay those songs over and over and over……….really it would have been a bizarres sight had you seen me! XD "Morning Coffee" will always hold a special *sentimental* value above many songs from Momusu/H!P and it's b-side even more for that matter. =) It's where Momusu/H!P all began for me so that will never waiver or change.I'm not totally sure what their parents are playing for them ore allowing them to hear really……………but when they're with me it's J-Pop all the time…maybe too much of the time! (*´∀`*)

  4. Hai~ they're from B.L.T.'s "Hello! Project Winter 2009 コンプリートLIVE写真集エルダークラブ卒業スペシャル"……just like their coverage of Momusu's 10th anniversary mook it's really an amazing publication…..I think it's a must have? =) And I love how the songs being performed are mentioned in the upper corners of each page which really adds a nice touch~. ^ ^

    How much Japanese do they understand? I don't think parents are able to control what music kids listen to these days very well. ^^ I spend a huge amount of time trying to make Emma and Liz's Playlists as meaningful and fun as possible. 😛 They are so smart with their iPods!! I want them to make *me* playlists now! Emma has a Touch and Liz a lil pink Nano… I know I spoil them, but it is a great enabler for their learning too. Their Mom wasn't too crazy about spending that kind of money on them, but they've never broke one and they spend hours with them in deep concentration. so kawaii!!Thats why I am so shameless about asking for help and recomendations… They know you are an offical Auntie! :PI liked Morning Coffee a lot, and even more when I got the English translation! But talk about a song that transends understanding the words! Very few singers or groups can rise to that level.I bet your nieces love you to death!! <3>

  7. Just a little……wait you are speaking about just my one niece that's in the photo right? Otherwise some of my other nieces have been learning Japanese from a very early age, but my niece whom was with me knows just a little so far but I think her parents are going to enroll her in classes soon. She's so funny though as she loves to repeat some things that I say even if she doesn't completely understand the words…..so I have to be very careful not to say something that she shouldn't be mimicking! XD I think they're very lucky to have such a *caring* and giving friend in you~! "Morning Coffee" is such a special song for me….it being the first song by Momusu that I heard and purchased and so true~…..the lyrics are really wonderful and open. =)

  8. When "Roman~my dear boy~" was released I was so blown away by it!! It's still one of my favorite pvs to watch by Momusu and I love the whole conveyor belt thing with each member~! Aichan is so cute too in the pv…..and I thought Yossi was awesome too! I had to stop doing these song rankings after a few years though as they just took so much out of me!!…(u_u*)

  10. Although Aichan was just beginning to emerge as the star of Momusu back then I do love her so much in the pv for "Souda! We're Alive" as well. I miss the style of those early pvs and some of the creativity that some of the latter ones don't have as much of. Ahh this is then a very *special * song for you personally too~! (*´∀`*) The b-side of "Morning Coffee"…."Ai no tane" is the same for me in this sense….it's the first Momusu song that I fell in *love* with back then. It's always great to reminisce about our favorites and how they came to be. =)

  12. What's nice is that with H!P you never have to worry about that ever. =) Much of their target audience is the younger generations so their song lyrics are always appropriate for anyone. ^ ^
