She’s been like her mascot of sorts for her concert tour and now with this DVD release the oh~so~cute~♥ “Matsutake~ko” has been made into an original ear phone!! Kawaii~♥ deshou~* ^ ^♥ Have you had matsutake before?….they’re yummy in soups but be sure to cook properly so as to not have too much of a rubbery feel to them xD. Hmm they may be more of an acquired tastes perhaps as either you really love them or…..not so much =)! Still, matsutake ear phones……who would’ve thought such a design they’re so cute♥! I can use them with my new iPod too now which worked out great as I actually didn’t have any new earphones to listen with =).

Matsu Takako "second wave" on film DVD w/ "Minna hitori CD single

Matsu Takako “second wave” on film DVD w/ “Minna hitori CD single

..it’s from her DVD “Second wave” on film~ was released on March 24th, 2004 and includes 22 *wonderful* and lively~ performances but I most love her performance of “Yume de aetara” which occurs right at the start of her encore performances which also is the reason for her adorable casual attire~. o(*´∀`)o゛ This song is such an ultra *cute* golden J-pop classic~….I hope you enjoy it too! ^ ^


And just a couple of more favorites♥ in audio and then two more beautiful pvs♥ to follow…….please enjoy =)

“幸せの呪文” (“Shiawase no jumon”) was released as a b-side on Matsu Takako’s “Minna hitori” maxi single, released on November 29th, 2006. I’d say that this is one of my top 3 most favorite Matsu Takako songs all time. Matsu Takako wrote both the lyrics and music for this upbeat and uplifting melodic gem which just has the most beautifully flowing verses and chorus.

"Yume no shizuku"...

“Yume no shizuku”…

Surely one Matsu♥Takako isn’t enough…(。ーωー。) so here we have multiple images all elegantly captured in a single pv~ for this intricate melody♪♪~….and the black & white contrast really suits this vision so well~! Really makes me *wish* that I had learned to play the piano! =)

    A- I like takako a lot, she s faaaar far far from the idols world (^^ and we nearly have the same age)… i didn t know she sings like that. I mainly remember her for her doramas ^^ ラブ ジェネレーション!

    Her songs are really relaxing, quite nice, really. And another day i know something new thanks to モーベちゃん♥

    Ahh, I’m so happy! Finally I know who’s the singer of Hana You Ni, which appears in Dance!Online (a DDR like online game). I didn’t know about her, but I really fell in love with her beautiful singing and her bright smile… *-* Thank you so much!


    • Wow I had no idea that Matsu Takako had a video game song affiliation =)!! That’s so awesome……I don’t know too much about DDR but I have friends who play it, so so great to know that “Hana no youni” is heard in such a broad audience thank you~♥ ^ ^。If you get a chance please check out some of her earlier songs as she has so many gems in both singles and albums~♥.

      A few song other song recommendations would be….”Kisses”, “Akubi”, “Ashita ni kuchizuke wo”, “days”, “Shiawase no jumon”, “Stay with me”, “Natsu no kioku”, “your birthday”, “Minna hitori”, “a bird”….and I could go on and on =)!

        Dance!Online has some other Japanese songs like w-inds and T.M Revolution. The bad thing is that if the title is Japanese (like “Hana no You ni”), it changes to an English translation, so I’ve thought until yesterday that the song was called “As bloom”, lol. But I really do thing that the game pays copyright to the artists for using their songs. :3 If you would like to check how the game looks like…

        And thank you for the song recommendations! I’ll definitively check out them. ^_^


        • Oh I know a little of w-inds and T.M. Revolution from his earlier songs….a~h they translate the songs. Wow that person playing is like amazing!!…everything is perfect! I was watching someone at the store playing a similar game but it had English language songs….the graphics of the dancer are pretty~* too and so fluid. A~h this is sort of surreal seeing this game now and hearing Matsu Takako sing…..as so funny it does say ‘As Bloom’…..the translation is a bit too literal :P. I love that they chose this song too, the dance is so elegant to watch ^ ^。

          I had a lot more of Matsu Takako’s songs uploaded here but most of them were lost when Vox closed…my main Matsu Takako post is here…
