原田知世…sweet♥ J-Pop for your Sunday~

Harada Tomoyo, for much of the nineties balanced both a successful t.v. drama career along with a music career~. There’s a very soft and natural beauty about her which comes across in her acting…and the word that instantly comes to mind whenever I listen to her vocals♪♪~…elegant.

For much of her music releases Harada Tomoyo actively wrote her own lyrics which gives an endearing quality to them, and here on this *lazy* and oh so so warm & humid Sunday…(゜ロ゜ノ)ノ (I hope you’re enjoying yours! ( ̄▽ ̄) )…..here are just a couple of personal Harada Tomoyo *favorites*~. =)

“Tears of Joy” is one of those songs you just get so taken in with from the very first listen…….such a beautiful daydream like melody all set to a sweet ensemble of contemporary pop instrumentation~.

Released on October 24th, 2001……..this one is *pure* love for me (…makes me feel all warm & *fuzzy* inside..o(*´∀`)o゛♥), I hope you enjoy it too! =)

~Harada Tomoyo “Sincere” mp3~

“Sincere” was released on July 24th, 1997 and was presented in Japan’s long standing 3″ CD single format which I always loved and felt that it really gave their single releases such a unique look with their long rectangular shape which looks really *pretty* when cased in those special jewel cases~. Sadly the last of this release format would be seen just two or so years later. It’s a very intimate composition with the beautiful sounds of an acoustic nylon string guitar~. Sincere” was the theme song for the drama “Dessan” which also starred Harada Tomoyo. =)

  3. Ah~ the drama was really just so-so…..but it's great when a song♪♪ stays with you afterward, hmm there are actually quite a few dramas that I've watched where the I loved the theme song more than the series itself. XD I only have a few of her releases but she does have a most wonderful voice…..and you've described it *perfectly*! And I love whenever an actor or actress performs the theme song for a drama in which they're also starring in~. =)

  4. Oh I wasn't even aware of when her debut occurred….I guess it was a bit later than most artists would begin. "Tears of Joy" always makes me *smile*…just love this song so much! ^ ^
