Part V of my favorite songs of 2011.
This post is exactly what the title says. Part 1/6 of what I feel are my favorite songs of 2011. (I couldn’t choose just a few.)
I’ve honestly always wanted to do this but was always too lazy lol but this time I was determined to make it happen. Like I said, there are 6 parts and I’ll have them all posted by the first of the new year. All together there are about 50 songs, I think?
I picked these song based on how many times I’ve listened to them and how I personally feel towards them. This has absolutely nothing to do with quality (well…not completely anyway), because some songs I chose over others that were probably “better”.
To put it simply, these are songs that were released this year that I really enjoyed. That’s that. So on to it.
(I may go back and leave DL links to the songs…I’m not sure yet.)
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)
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.
Choosey Lover by Tohoshinki
Yes, you read that right. I could have chosen Can You Celebrate by Namie that just about every Jpop fan thinks is the absolute be all to end all wedding songs. But no.
I actually don’t plan on getting married…ever, but if I were, I would love to play this song at my reception. It has a really great old school RnB vibe that everyone in my family loves (Interesting tidbit: when I first fell in love with this song I let my sister listen to it and she thought it was sampled after a song by some RnB group. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but she sang the American song and it did have a very similar melody…and some of the same words, so she might be right).
I just know we all would have a good time dancing to this song .
Junsu had a cameo in the drama, Scent of a Woman and HNNGG he looked so gorgeous and his hair was just so perfect and he sounded so cute and gorgeous when he sang in Engrish and he spoke some Japanese and his smile was just so angelic and he performed some of INTOXICATION!! And I just Adj;sakjd’fja’fjksfjlf!!
BE STILL MY HEART.
Here it is:
And the song he sang for the drama:
I just love him so so so so much. Almost a year after I left the fandom and my love for him has not dwindled at all.
Forever my #1 bias. Seriously.
Once again, no contest. This is probably one of the few songs that just from hearing the beginning notes, can make my mood better in an instant. The Chunglish, Yoochun’s voice full of grease, the beat, and the best part of it all…the rap.
“MY LOVE IS BIGGER THAN GINGERBREAD MAN’S VITALITY” Gets me to smile every time.
My GirlFriend by Micky Yoochun
Someone just text me and asked if I knew that Homin were releasing a new Japanese album.
So I went check, and holy shit.
HOMIN ARE RELEASING A JAPANESE ALBUM IN SEPTEMBER.
At first I was like:
and now I’m just like:
The memories man. The TH5K memories.
Damn you tumblr. For making me all nostalgic and shit.
…Guess I better go figure out when I can pre-order it…
I think I may start doing “Songs of the Moment” as a separate post from now on…
Mayumi Yamazaki – Hello, Fine Days (Her new single (With You) is really good. I wanted to post that, but I couldn’t find it on YouTube)
Sayuri Sugawara – Forever… (Find this album (of the same name) and download it. It’s pretty amazing. And her voice is to die for.)
miss A – 하나부터 열까지 (I’ve never really been a miss A fan…but I’m really liking their new album.)
UNCHAIN – 太陽とイーリス (This band… I feel like I just hit a goldmine lol. I am loving them.)
Yuka Masaki – Lady Luck (If you haven’t checked out this girl yet, you are missing out.)
Kyarypyamu – PONPONPON (I am so in love with her. I’ve been obsessed for about a month, and now, I’m obsessed with this song. It’s been stuck in my head for the past few days)
THSK – Superstar (Yunho…I love you, but please stop singing like that. Doing it sometimes is okay, but every song?!)
Dohzi-T – 誓い Ft. YU-A (This is such a perfect single. I recommend it. It’s just…I have no words.)
Beginning of next week expect a regular post ^_^
Now, I’m off to finish reading Naruto and watching Ao no Exorcist (I’m alternating)…
Back home in Louisiana. Glad to see my babies(my dogs), but I’m missing Florida already.
For people who live in the U.S., I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I feel so bad because I did a post on the 4th and forgot to wish Jin and especially GACKT a happy birthday. 27 and 38….wow. (and Canadians too! Canada’s independence day was like a week before right?)
Bought a shit ton of stuff while I was there…I’m so broke right now. Gonna have to wait until next week to order Ayu’s mini-album.
This post ended up being a little longer than I wanted it to be, because I ended up rambling on the Namie section. Blegh. Sorry.
