Yes. Yes, I am still alive.
Initially I took a break from blogging simply because it got to the point where I was so busy I couldn’t even think about this blog. Then when I did want to blog I had absolutely no idea what to talk about being that I don’t take the time out to watch PVs or PV previews or anything like that anymore.
Anyway, I probably won’t be doing my usual types of posts anytime soon (Sorry~), so I figure doing a SOTM post every two weeks or so would have to suffice. That way I can still rave about the songs and artists that I’m loving without all of the extra hassle that usually went into making other posts. With that said, this will be a three part SOTM post. I’ll try and post one every day, but I make no promises.
Tbh, i know it’s only the beginning of the year, but I haven’t been really feeling the songs that have been released so far lol. But that’s fine, it tends to happen from time to time. So, that usually means that I go and listen to older music.
Anyway, the post.
(Also changed my icon to the glorious KimuTaku. )
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.
Part V of my favorite songs of 2011.
Part IV of my favorite songs of 2011.
Part III of my favorite songs of 2011.
Here is part II 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.)
There are two songs that I am obsessed with right now. One is Kyary’s new song, ‘Tsukema Tsukeru’ and the other, which I just heard a couple of days ago, is Orange Caramel’s ‘Funny Hunny’.
”Tsukema Tsukeru’ is her first true single, because as far I know (correct me if I’m wrong), ‘PONPONPON’ was just a digital/promotional single for her mini-album and as such, is not counted as her actual first single.
Anyway, this song, much like ‘PONPONPON’, is very catchy and the PV is just as odd as her other PV. My only problem with this song is it almost feels like a Perfume reject song…I guess that’s understandable being that they use the same producer. Even still, I hope they have her get a more distinct sound, she already stands out by how she looks and by her PVs, but not everyone’s going to find out about her through her videos… Okay. I’m just rambling now lol.
And now Orange Caramel.
Orange Caramel. I love them. love love love. Kpop fans act like it’s wrong to like them because they’re “too cute” but so the fuck what? What’s wrong with some cuteness every now and then? I’d prefer natural cuteness over that try-hard sexiness that most of them are doing. If I’m being completely honest, I’d listen to Orange Caramel over After School any day.
The MV is a cartoon which I don’t like because I would rather a video with them actually in it, whatever. The song is super cute and all I keep singing in my head is – MY FUNNY HUNNY~~ Gawd this song is so cute.
Can’t believe I forgot to talk about Kuu! Well, I’m sure everyone knows already anyway…but just in case you don’t, Kuu is getting married to KENJI03 – vocalist of BACK-ON – and she is also eight weeks pregnant. Her upcoming album (which looks like it will be fucking amazing) JAPONESQUE, was scheduled for a late February release but has been pushed up to late January…obviously because she’s preggers. She will be on hiatus after the release of her album until November 13th of next year.
I’m extremely happy for her, but gawd that’s almost an entire year of inactivity and Kuu pushes those singles and albums out like Ayu…I’m creying tbh. Who is gonna give me the sluttiness that Kuu can give? Will be a huge void in my fandom life next year.
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)
