Part III of my favorite songs of 2011.
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.
Uhm…honestly, I thought long and hard and I still couldn’t really think of a band who I hated or even strongly disliked…
Until, I remembered VAMPS (a rock duo, but whatever).
This is ironic since my favorite band is L’arc en Ciel and VAMPS is HYDE’s side project thing, but I really just can not stand VAMPS. I don’t like majority of the songs…I tried, I really did, but I just couldn’t get with it.
Anyway, here is one of the few songs of theirs I like: Sweet Dreams
Yokan by L’arc~en~Ciel
L’arc is my favorite band (though, I think I’ve said this before), and this is one of my favorite songs by them.
Going to post the live version from the SMILE tour because 1) I couldn’t find the album version and 2) I listen to this version more than the other (God, the last minute and 45 seconds gets to me every time).
I know all the words to a lot of Asian songs but the first song I learned all the words to is Hello by HYDE.
Will never forget it. I had been listening to Japanese music (Okay, only J-Rock/Visual Kei…it took a little while for me to branch out to other genres) for quite awhile by this time, but I still didn’t really know any of the words to the songs I was listening to, so I would just hum when I would listen to them. And then one day I was sitting in my dad’s truck listening to some music and this song came on and I just starting singing and half way through the song, I was like, “Holy shit! I know the words!!!!” It was a magnificent day for me. My pronunciation at the time was so horrible though.
Super long post today!
As usual too lazy to type out all that’s going on in my life..will do it next post for sure…
I don’t have anything to talk about right now…so onto the post.
I’ve been dieting for the last two months (because I gained 15 pounds since the beginning of the year! I was so stressed.) and I really just want a cupcake D:
The semester is coming to an end very soon and next month, I’m going to Houston to go apartment looking. The closer to August it’s getting, the more anxious I’m becoming. I still can’t believe I’m moving! (Plus I’m sad because I’ve decided to leave my dog behind at home for a few months until I get settled…)
Anyway, new post ahead.
