The final part of my Favorite Songs of 2011 series. I actually can’t believe I actually got it done before the new year lmao. But here it is. Enjoy.
Christmas is literally a week away, so I thought what better post to do than a post about Christmas music? As I’m sure people who read this blog know, I love Japanese music more than anything. The great thing about Japanese music is that they truly have music for every. single. season. Every one. Which I find fantastic, because I tend to listen to songs that I feel go with the season. Anyway, Here are some of my absolute favorite Japanese winter songs (like last SOTM post, to DL the song click on the title)
Was planning on doing like three posts within the last week and a half but 1) work and 2) I’ve been really lazy. So please forgive me and read about/listen to these songs that I love at the moment.
Also before we get to the songs, I’ve decided that I’ll post links to download the songs that I list on my SOTM posts because I figure, if it were me and I’d heard a song on a blog that I really liked that I would want them to post a link so I could put said song on my iPod. So that’s what I’m going to do from now on.
So… I felt like doing a post lol. Being that there wasn’t too much I felt like rattling on about (Mainly because I’m not paying too much attention to Asian pop news at the moment) but I have been downloading and listening to a ton of songs as usual, and figured I might as well do a post about the ones I’m obsessed with right now…not that I can listen to it since iTunes deleted every damn song from my iPod last night. Over 19,000 songs. Gone. I only have about 20% saved on a hard drive. I’m still pissed off.
Anyway, here it is.
It was a little hard choosing between I am… (Ayu) and Mars(GACKT)…to be honest I still can’t really chose which album I like better. But for this challenge I decided to go with the Mars album.
Being that it is one of my favorite albums, I honestly love every single song on it. But the one song from this album I can never grow tired of is Emu~for my dear~ by (of course) GACKT
This song is such perfection. Every damn thing about it is just…so damn raw. Seven years after hearing it for the first time and I still listen to it on a regular basis.
Also random, but on my last ipod this song was my most played song (over 3000 plays) and now on my new ipod ,that I’ve had for the over a year, it is the third most played song (behind Beginner and Microphone)
I was really stumped on this day because, I had no idea how I could find one song that describes me.
…In the end, it came down to three songs (two Ayu songs and a GACKT song. Predictable right?). Even though I’m only supposed to list one, in the end I could only dwindle it down to two.
These two songs describe exactly how I feel at this time in my life.
…I’m an individual filled with angst.
A Song For XX ”030213 Session #2” by Ayumi Hamasaki (lyrics trans)
Lapis by GACKT (lyrics trans)
The other song was Real Me.
Half way through the challenge~
Flying out to Florida tomorrow morning. I’m staying until the 7th. Gonna try and not act up too much.
…I haven’t even packed yet.
OMG. I’ve been addicted to Tumblr for the past week. I usually only went on there every now and then, but for some reason, I’m just on there the entire time I’m on my laptop now.
Unfortunately, because I’ve been on it so much lately, it made me realize again just how… elitist a lot of Asian pop fans are. Really. It’s okay to like Asian music, but don’t act like it’s better than Western pop because it’s not talking about “drugs, getting wasted, and sex”. Get the fuck off ya’ll high horses for real (One of the biggest pet peeves I have about Asian pop fans.)
Anyway, as for this post, there honestly isn’t anything that I really want to talk about…Really.
I’m just getting back home. I was in Houston this entire weekend. Doing what?
Clubbin’ of course…and looking for an apartment lol.
I was also away from a computer all weekend. Which meant no internetz. I didn’t even check on my phone.
Now when I get back on, I go check the pop culture news and…I was so pissed that I stayed away from the internet because epic shit happened (ala ARASHI) and I was also kind of glad I stayed away, because of the petty arguments that went on among fans (…wtf was that Kame fan – Jin fan argument? and the Ayu fan – 2PM fan argument that went on in Arama? What was that shit?? Not to mention the fuckery that was going on in the GACKT fandom about GacktJob).
But either way, This post won’t be super long, there wasn’t much I felt like talking about.
So onto the post.
GACKT will be on the cover of the July edition of Arena37…22 entire pages of GACKT, including a poster.
Ordering myself a copy as soon as I get paid.
Thank God for this new single.
X Japan’s new song, Scarlet Love Song.
Is this single on the U.S. itunes, or just the Japanese itunes? I need to find out….
And that’s it for this post. Short and sweet!
Going workout now…I’m going to a Zumba class…My sister’s been doing it for about a month and the amount of inches she’s lost is amazing! So I told myself I have to try it.
…I’m just hoping I won’t regret it…
