Okay~* for the past couple of days I've been trying to sort through and edit out what can be well…..actually read without too much weirdness 😛 and well now while I'm not sure if I've done a decent job or not here is the girl talk which I often encounter..well when a particular someone is with me both the good and the bad!
So this past weekend was set, in which "Couscous" (friend's nickname which has too much of an embarrassing story behind it to tell (*´艸`)！！）and I sat down and listened to/watched all of the entries for the "turn me on giveaway" and while I'm familiar with some of the songs submitted surely in keeping with the theme~* of having someone inexperienced potentially being turned on♥ it would be Couscous whom would have the much more spontaneously fresh response to J~Pop as a whole as she's never listened to any before and nor does she speak any Japanese (except for bad words (ノロ≦。)！！！） so this makes for a most honest and well @
times mostly candidly amusing response~, sometimes non~sensible but don't tell her I said that (^q^)! So in collaborating here, we've officially become Morning♥Couscous….all girl power!! and somewhat "H~chy" ! times and of course I'm speaking of Couscous and not me for the latter (。ーωー。)。。。。♪♪
And to keep from this becoming oh so long and boring I've kept the running commentary for each track as brief as possible from recording it and keeping just a bit of it here through much editing and trying to figure out what was said which took a bit longer than expected so I apologize for the further delay, as the chatter between us can be endless and especially if we don't agree on something :P! And beforehand I would like to apologize to all the wonderful songs she was mean to (ノロ≦。)！！Original posting of entries can be read here =).
Mint's J~Pop choices:
AKB48- "RIVER" (played the audio track as sadly YouTube seems to have eaten the clip 😦 )
Morning (me): So it's your very first J~Pop song♥!
Couscous (friend): At first I thought they were shouting 'liver!'..it is catchy although the beginning was a bit much for me.
M: But the intro's one of the best parts.
C: It sounds like a lot of girls singing and they harmonize well.
M: AKB48 has a lot of members but only selected members perform on their title track singles and they're really awesome.
C: After awhile the chorus really grows on you too and parts of it sound a lot like American pop but especially in the chorus love that part the best!
Morning Musume Otomegumi- "Yuujou ~Kokoro ni Busu ni wa Naranee!~"
C: The girl singing at the start sounded a bit umm rough? I didn't think she was the best vocalist here so interesting they had her open the song. Love the punk rock sound and with cutesy visuals to go along it really works. I guess I just always envisioned Japanese pop to be much more Hello Kitty all the time so Otomegumi is really an eye opener.
M: (has censored herself after the rough Sayu♥ comment (+_+) )
Perfume's- "Electro World"
C: Electro Pop? Makes me think of night clubs and dancing! I think I like this song the best so far really would put me in a good mood even on bad days. The vocals are so "produced" but not overdone and the song instantly grabs me. Japanese fashion is interesting..like what they're wearing here.
M: This song's new to me too as I've never listened to Perfume before and aside from the techno of early Amurochan for the most part I don't tend to listen to that much electro~pop but of course this isn't techno at all…it's just that I sort of categorize them similarly. The main girl is really cute and so funny one of them is named "Nocchi" like with Nocchi of H!P or used to be in H!P.
C: I have no idea of what you're talking about and "Nocchi' sounds like a weird name.
M: It sounds better than "Couscous" I'm kidding!!! please don't hurt me!
C: (evil stare…..(。ーωー。)笑）
THE Possible- "Family ~Tabidachi no Asa~"
C: Wow that girl second from the left looks so hapa! and they all sing really well. I can totally see why guys would go for something like this..it's like the pv is trying to seduce me in ways I didn't think……possible.
M: Oh dear that what so corny!
C: You were supposed to say it was quick.
C: Again the hapa girl sings the best but everyone sounds great in this group! The song is really well written too really really sweet…they're like angels in all white. I never told you this but a someone in particular used to tell me that you listen to all of this cutesy music and yet they all can't sing very well….this song proves otherwise and I think this song really represents the theme of what you're trying to do here with turning someone on. Do you have this song?
M: (shamefully) no but now I want it too。。。。(*´艸`)
Hoshino Kanako- "Regret"
C: Sounds like a rave song…energetic! It's catchy but it's just that after hearing The Possible it's difficult to like it as much although I do love this style of tempo.
M: It's from a dance game so knowing that approach…
C: Oh no I do love dance music so much I'm just saying that hapa girl's voice may stay with me for awhile.
J~pyon's J~pop choices:
Sharan Q- Jokyo Monogatari
C: The lead singer has very feminine eyebrows.
M: oh my god that's the first thing you're going to say?
C: Okay I really like his voice it has so much character in it and this is the first male J~Pop I'm hearing so it's a bit more of a shock…no surprise..no what am I saying.
M: You're weirder than I used to think.
C: Oh they're a real band and thank you you're such a sweetie to say as I know you like weirdness (￣▽￣) I like this song very much.
Zone- Shiroi Hana
C: Oh this one has subtitles..is it just this one girl singing?
M: No they're a band but she's the lead.
C: Knowing the lyrics they're very beautifully written and lots of emotion in this song. Oh okay now I see the band and I guess it's not just the guys who can impress with a band's effort they're really talented! What does "shiroi hana" mean?
M: White flower, although depending on how it's written it can also mean "nose" but here it's flower.
C: White flower, very beautiful song.
Berryz Koubou- Tsukiatteru no ni Kataamoi
C: This is the most Japanese~y video yet..with the screens it's really a great visual. That girl's voice is so high! Helium?
M: Momochan♥ I think that's everyone's first reaction she's arguably the most adorable in the group.
C: Well they're all really pretty and this song sounds sort of cartoony~ish I don't know how else to describe it. The dancing is great except for that wiggly leg thing they're doing there…sorry I think it's a bit odd.
M: This is so not cartoony it's cute~♥ J~pop! But I forgive you because you noticed Momo so you're not totally aloof!
C: (evil stare…(*≧m≦)！！）
Zard- Goodbye my Lonliness
M: This is their debut single the video is like a collage.
C: She has the best vocals so far I think. Even more so than the guy who shapes his eyebrows..
M: Ahh focus focus!
C: There's so much emotion and feeling in her voice..this sounds a lot better than some of the other music I listen to. It's so melodic with the piano notes and yet it sounds a bit like a rock song but mostly it's her voice here which is so moving. If she sang on American Idol I think she'd have a chance at winning.
M: That's so sweet but sadly she passed away I'll tell you more later.
Tokyo Girls Style- Kirari (sadly this clip was no longer available =( )
MonicaaMamoo's J~Pop choices:
Utada Hikaru- "Automatic" (link) (again eaten by YouTube but since I have Hikki's music we listened to the audio track)
C: This really sounds so much like American r&b but she has the most powerful voice here so far! It's interesting how so much English is included in titles or lyrics..
M: U~n! Hikki is really an amazing artist and performer and I did ask you to go with me remember?
C: When? no you didn't.
M: Ehhh? I so did and you're now in denial mode..now you know you missed out on something so special?
C: You should have played me her songs first, it really would have helped in encouraging me..
Amuro Namie- "Dont wanna cry" (link)
C: Okay you're really hitting me with strong vocalists now…how do you pronounce her name?
M: A-mu-ro-na-mi-e" I really love this single it goes way back in her catalog…Japan was still releasing 3" singles back then♥.
C: She has such stage presence but that voice it's amazing. It's commanding and this is live..makes even a bigger impression compared to studio recordings where vocals can be enhanced sometimes. The dancing is fun too and there's a real joy in it.
M: Vocal nuances, control and power.
C: What's that on her arm?
M: You mean the bar code?
C: Ehhhh? can I ring her up?
M: No she's already mine XD.
C: (evil stare…(*≧m≦)！！）
Every Little Thing- "Fragile" (link)
C: Ohh another live clip! I'm beginning to like the rock and pop thing intermingled it really works so well and really when the vocalist is so capable.
M: Mochida Kaori♥ I really followed Every Little Thing from when the debuted but I find myself liking their earlier releases much more as I think they lost a lot when the keyboard player left as he wrote so much for them back then.
C: Forget the keyboard whomever…the guitar player's cute!
M: Are you really that shallow?
C: Not as shallow as you…
M: Okay but you are that shallow :P!
C: ….maybe not as tight* as you are but shallow okay~!
M: Omg! (*>ω<)。。。you have no idea but I hear it's a positive thing (。ーωー。)♥
C: Are we still talking about music?
M: Um, no XD.
Kubota Toshinobu- "LA LA LA LOVE SONG" (link)
M: One day I'm making you watch this drama♥! This song so so so awesome and I think timeless as it sounds just as amazing now as it did when I first heard it….reminds me so much of Kimutaku.
C: The melody is so happy and upbeat and he has an interesting hair style I must say.
C: Love his voice I think he's sings in an almost English way in that he doesn't sound like he has that much of an accent really catchy song! So many la la la's though but I guess it's in the title so..
M: You're so weird.
C: Not as weird as you are.
M: I know =).
Wands- もっと強く君を抱きしめたなら (link)
C: Now this guy sounds Japanese..
M: Um he is.
C: Well you know what I mean he has much more of an accent than the last guy singing. Strong voice and the song is okay…it's good rock but just look at that mullet.
M: I've heard Wands before as they have a collaboration single with Zard.
C: Are you listening to me?
C: His mullet, check out his mullet.
HarimaKenji's J~Pop choices:
Ikimono Gakari- Hana wa Sakura Kimi wa Utsukushi (ugh! it appears that YouTube has eaten this clip =( )
JUDY AND MARY- Blue Tears
C: Is that Slash???
M: No think he's just inspired =).
C: She's……..strange. But really cute it's just that she sings so unusually but it works okay and they have kind of a punky sound to them which I like. But she sounds so strange I can't get over it does she always sound this way?
M: More or less it's really her style of performance and JUDY AND MARY are really popular.
C: This song's growing on me. But she's so strange..
M: Stop saying that XD!
Zone- Egao Biyori
C: Now this is awesome an all girl group no I mean band you just don't expect to see this at all so sad that all girl bands seem so rare or at least with those that see success. Were they popular? They're great singing their own back up and they're real musicians.
M: U~n Zone was really big in Japan back then they're just one of those groups where I maybe had too much on my plate at the time so I sadly didn't get into them like I should have. This song's amazing they're all amazing.
C: All of those cutesy girls you listen to should learn to play instruments too I'd be that much more impressed.
M: I so agree but at this point I'd just settle for a live band backing them up in live shows as there's so much of an extra dynamic present with a live band being there and all of the added chemistry and interaction it can bring. There's Manoeri though.
C: What's a manoeri?
M: Never mind XD. I should play some Princess Princess for you I think they're still the greatest all female band Japan has produced to date you may like them.
C: Okay but for now Zone gets my awesomeness vote!
The Blue Hearts- Chain Gang Abe Natsumi- Nacchi version~
C: oh my god is his face going to remain that way?
M: Um I think so..
C: This is….
C: Interesting. The blues part is nice it's just that his voice is….
C: like sandpaper.
M: Oh my god you're so weird.
C: Not as weird as you are.
M: I know =).
(Now listening to Nacchi version)
C: I like this version much better she sounds much better.
M: Ah you're being too harsh..okay Nacchi does sound much better but more importantly the song?
C: It's a nice bluesy song. I can appreciate this.
M: I've never heard Nacchi sing this way before…she's really channeling The Blue Heart's lead singer and it's so out of the box for any H!P member current or ex. There's conviction in these words so really you should appreciate that guy singing it too.
C: He sounded like sandpaper though.
(and I'm including this song as the first one was eaten by YouTube)
Oshima Yuko- Nakinagara hohoende
M: Be very careful with your words!
C: Ehhhh….it's very melodic. She looks like an angel.
M: Are you making fun..
C: No this song is pretty and she sings it very well. Who are all of those people behind her?
M: Oh these are best of countdown songs so the rest of the performers are also on stage.
C: That really didn't make much sense to me but okay.
M: Is this something you'd listen to?
C: I think I would like when I'm alone.
M: Ehh what's that supposed to mean? :O
C: Oh my god I can see what's going on you love her don't you.
M: I really like her but love I don't think you'd use in the way that you're thinking..
C: No you love her and that's why you're so protective..are you secretly a (censored for your protection (*´艸`)）
M: Noooo what are you saying!!!
C: Okay but you sure lit up when this began playing just saying is all…
M: She has the best dimples.
C: You have dimples too..
M: No I don't.
C: Yes you do..smile.
denadel's J~Pop choices:
Namie Amuro– Never End
M: I love her pvs always so visually dynamic.
C: I didn't recognize her earlier but is this is that girl on your wall..the tapestry.
M: U~n♥. This goes quite far back in her career really beautiful single.
C: Her voice has a lot of character she sings really strongly.
M: It's extra beautiful with its Okinawan tones you can hear the sanshin at times.
C: Sounds like a shamisen?
M: Similar instruments but they're constructed so differently love the sound.
Do as infinity- 柊
M: I once purchased an entire album of theirs just to have one song what was it called?….(goes to check)
C: Are you wearing a bra?
M: Eh? no but it's just you so..why are you looking
C: It's not like I'm looking you're just extra jiggly today so..
M: When you're tiny it doesn't matter as much..oh the song is called "Week!" I was watching an old drama and I kept hearing this song so I had to have it.
C: This song's really peaceful. Her voice has a nice character to it.
Boa- Amazing Kiss
M: Boa is a Korean J~Pop artist.
C: I bet the guys go for her a lot this video is totally man bate see she's even being chased in the video..
M: You're so funny….weird.
C: This sounds the most like our pop dance songs you hear on the radio it's very club like too like it like it.
M: Boa is amazing and sexy and pretty she's perfect.
C: You have a girl crush?
M: Crush envy it's almost the same.
C: I think with the theme this really would be an easy transition into Japanese pop as it's so similar but with just Japanese words.
Utada Hikaru- Sakura Drops (Sadly YouTube has eaten this clip =( )
(now listening to the audio from my CD)
M: This is one of my more recent favorites you should hear this song performed live.
C: She sings with a lot of feeling and the song's sweet and poppy. The keyboards are enchanting sort of sparkly like much like the "Amuro" (mispronounces name XD) girl she sounds to have the best range. Really beautiful song.
Hamasaki Ayumi- Immature
C: Ah she has the same last name as you?
M: I sometimes pretend we're related XD.
C: Maybe not as much strength in her voice as the last girl but she sounds really good and the song has a nice energy to it. Japanese artists sure like their rock don't they as even with some of these more poppy songs there's a rock sound to them matches well though. Ah that was an abrupt ending.
M: One day I'll let you hear how Ayu speaks…she just sounds so different then and you'd most likely not imagine a voice like that coming from her =).
Rebear's J~Pop choices:
Morning Musume.- Morning Musume no Hyokkori Hyoutan-jima (link)
C: What cute animation oh wait why are they all dressed as guys? This song..
M: It's just part of the pv's charm.
C: It sounds sort of like a play song or stage song like from a broadway show or something..but more like a comedy and there are so many of them. It's quite an odd song.
M: Morning Musume really can't be summed up in any one song or even with just a few really..this also isn't representative of their works just a single venture they did more for a fun touch. They're catalog of songs is large and I'm thinking a song like "Koe" or "Memory seishun no hikari" would attract you a bit more.
Utada Hikaru – Keep Tryin' (link)
C: Japanese videos are so much more fun then ours..just the visuals here really makes it fun to watch.
M: We just heard a Hikki song two songs ago..
C: Sakura drops was a beautiful ballad but this one's a lot more free sounding like it'd put me in a good mood first thing in the morning…happy.
M: Sakura drops showed much more of her range vocal wise..this one's definitely fun and upbeat..depends on your taste I think.
C: They both are good..I wouldn't be able to choose between them although I may be leaning towards this song just a little more.
Hiramatsu Eri – Heya to Y Shirts to Watashi (link)
C: This sounds much more old fashioned and at first I wasn't sure what I thought of her voice…there's something like warmth here.
M: U~n the pv has a special warmth too with its visuals.
C: Makes me want to have a girl and a boy but of course a husband first who's loving do you know where he is?
M: I was trying to place it…definitely is arranged like a waltz and I love her phrasing especially during the chorus..
C: You're ignoring me?
M: About your husband to be? You're so funny I going to tell your boyfriend you're having impure thoughts about cheating…
C: No but can you imagine him being like they guy in this video?
M: Um no but it isn't real life…I'm still telling him..
C: You'll be tickled to death you know.
Arashi – Truth (link) (YouTube has eaten this clip so we're now listening to my CD)
M: Arashi are hot so here you'll just have to imagine them moving by staring at this cover XD.
C: I know you have their DVDs..
M: But it's just this song for now oh but I could have showed you their latest live DVD but too late..
C: (evil stare (*≧m≦)！）
C: The violins make it haunting like or dramatic it sounds intense. Something like this could make me a fan the music is really stylish and well it's a boys band so.,
C: Same thing.
Nakashima Mika – Glamorous Sky (link)
C: Now this band has a really dark like sound like it..
M: It's from a movie "Nana"..
C: They keep showing that girl in the crowd she's pretty..
M: It's like a tie in for the pv with the movie.
C: I'm always imagining this style of pop to be cutesy mostly so this is a nice change as it's really dark like..moody and the band even looks goth.
M: I only have one album from Nakashima Mika it's a best of and I made sure it had this song on it..really the reason I bought it.
C: Burn me a copy wanna hear more..
M: Ehh don't say burn..I'll let you borrow it..
M: I'm so not you're so mean..
C: I only know three words kechi..baka and urusai but that's all I need to have a conversation with you sometimes..
M: I'm so not the kechi you have to take that back..maybe the other two at times oh dear..
(the rest of this "conversation" has been omitted for your protection XD)
Henkka's J~Pop choices:
Hiromi Ohta – Momen no Handkerchief
M: Oh this is what would be considered a "standard" in J~Pop a well covered timeless song.
C: It's a pretty song and like much of our music sometimes the further you go back the better it is..to a point as I guess you can say there's bad and good in every time..
M: You're suddenly making sense..
C: Baka. She's really pretty too and her voice may be even better than some of those we heard earlier I'm much deeper than you may think.
M: That's what your bf says..
(the remainder of this "conversation" has been censored for your protection, believe me it's for the best XD)
Kazumasa Oda – Love Story wa Totsuzen ni
M: Wait let me show you his real avatar….here..
C: Wow I would never have guessed it was this sort of rock looking guy..what's a Henkka?
M: Nobody knows..rock maybe but he's really actually..
C: the sensitive type that's so cliche you know long haired sensitive guy plus now add in rock it can't..
M: We once shared hair care tips♥ he really is much more sensitive than his photo looks to be I think he was going for a tough look with the guitar but somehow you just know differently..
C: So many guys are like this…they make you think they're all indifferent but soon when they're alone they're all gooey and stuff.
M: Are we still talking about his personality or something* else?!!!
C: Wait the song's over.
M: It's buffered okay play…
M: Tokyo Love Story it's the title from a drama it looks like..the ending theme song. I've only heard Oda Kazumasa from one single I have "Tsutaetai koto ga arunda".."there's something I want to tell you." A friend suggested it and silly me never actually watched the drama. Oh I know that guy! Oda Yuji!! Oh my god it's Eguchi Yosuke I know him too. Why do I suddenly want to watch this drama!
C: He has a really soothing type voice sexy like too..
M: I think he sounds sort of like Karasawa Toshiaki~san..sophisticated like and yes sexy~!
C: What does this Oda guy look like?
M: I have no idea (._.;)
KAN – Iezu no I LOVE YOU
C: Sometimes the dorky guys are the best..
M: Don't say that!
C: You know what I mean like this guy he's dorky yet so perfect with his manner and even his voice it's perfect!
C: No really I like him Kan or whatever that can't be his name is it?
C: It's a sweet love song right..in the title and I could get married to this..
M: Again with marriage?…I'm telling your bf! he'll be frightened to death!!
C: You know I know how to hurt you….
M: I won't tell…….（(。ーωー。)。。。）。。
Princess Princess – DIAMONDS
M: You know Henkka…I spent days completing a most beloved post about Puri Puri! (link)♥..A~h! he likes Puri Puri!!♥!! The Hello! Project cover was so so but yes the original!!! I could go on but that could take awhile..
C: It's like you're having an orgasm in front of me not good! and he can't hear you..this is..
M: Okay old school but Puri Puri is timeless I mean you like Zone but Puri Puri is the greatest all female band ever in Japan…I think they helped to pave the way for great bands like Zone later and for any girl wanting to be successful writing and performing her own music.
C: This song is catchy..it's..
M: It's an early performance you can tell by Kaori's hair style…still long she's awesome!
C: This song is..
M: It really only captures a tiny snippit of what Puri Puri was all about you need to hear and see so much more like with their Platinum Days DVDs to really understand how much a part you know of the landscape they were for Japanese music and not just rock they covered it all in their careers.
C: You won't let me speak..
M: Oh sorry what were you going to say?
C: …..I can't remember (semi~evil stare (*≧m ）。
Momoe Yamaguchi – Playback Part 2
C: I just read his (Henkka's) comments and he admits a girl is manlier than him :O
M: Well if you knew Henkka you'd understand…hm I know what he means. I think that voice would kick his butt and then twice on Sunday.
C: She looks so intense and she does have a low voice…is Henkka..
M: Hmm…I don't know but it's most likely much higher pitched than Momoe…Momoe definitely wins you can just tell I mean just look at his hair it's much too pretty.
maiZe's J~Pop choices:
(Complete video clip links with maiZe's commentary can be found here @ fields of maiZe in the morning. Mite ne~* ＾ ＾。
Angela Aki- Tegami
C: She sounds American?
M: U~n Angela Aki is a hapa girl and totally fluent in Japanese culture..she also performed a theme for Final Fantasy I'm sure I've played it for you if you remember?
C: Sorry no but it's really different hearing someone English speaking sing in Japanese..
M: U~n she's totally fluent but I'm not sure if you'd look at it quite that way..
C: I love piano solos with just vocals this song is……relaxing. Like it
Sakamoto Maaya- Hemisphere
C: It's dramatic especially like the orchestration the violins it's an uneasy emotion.
M: Sounds really most dramatic almost frantic in its tempo..first time I'm hearing Sakamoto Maaya.
C: When I think of animation it's the visuals that capture me the most..
M: The Lion King, Aladdin?..
C: Don't make fun you like those too..
M: Just saying this is quite different and yet I know what you mean not familiar with this series but the song has a captivating quality about it. Little Mermaid♥.
m-flo feat. Yamamoto Ryohei & Melody- miss you
M: Oh I recognize Verbal from a collaboration single he did with Amurochan…awhile back what was the song called…?…."Lovin' it" ? I think?
C: The rap in betweens are catchy….it's like r&b? with an added…..rap. I like the sound here with the smooth sound of their vocals I never knew that guys rapped like this in Japan it's….
M: Are you shocked?
C: a bit…but it's somehow really cool and even though I don't know what they're saying I like the rhythm of their..voices. It's more like the rap guy is more important than the girl singing is that right?
M: It's a collaboration so I think it was intended to be much more equal.
Matsuura Aya- Zutto suki de ii desu ka
C: Elegant voice..and really pretty too oh this video, it's so creative with the images the transition(s) how it goes from one scene to another with a bit of trickery.
M: They call her Ayaya really one of the very best idol vocalists ever…I do love her cutesy as you would call it songs too with "Momoiro katamoi" which I'm so going to make you listen to as it was my very first favorite song by her..got me to get her entire catalog at that point and "Egao" which is my overall favorite♥. She sings amazingly and especially when you hear her live as there's just no drop off from her studio versions….she' so much amazing.
C: Her voice is soothing and yet so strong at times..like it.
Arashi- Love so sweet
M: Oh you've already pledged your love to Arashi♥!!
C: This video is so cute! they're supposed to be like mannequins? the song is..
M: I'm making you watch Hana yori dango too you can't resist..
M: That guy's in the drama you have to watch..
M: no..there that guy he's well aloof dreamy you'll like him XD! and remember Letters from Iwojima?
M: This guy's the one of the main actors….you recognize him?
C: Mm..not really I watched (it) awhile ago. Shhh…I'm listening to the song.
