Top 5 Songs from Sakanaction’s DocumentaLy

This album is widely considered Sakanaction’s best album. So, to narrow the list down to only five was very difficult. But here they are: -Monochrome Tokyo (モノクロトウキョー) Unfortunately, one song had to miss the cut. This time, the victim is Monochrome Tokyo. This is the first song I had ever heard by Sakanaction live, as a fun fact. Sakanaction …

Top 5 Songs from Sakanaction’s Kikuuiki

As always, these lists can be difficult to create because it means that songs that I love would not make the final list. I also then have to rank these songs, and declare a winner. -21.1 Sakanaction continues to make better and better non-lyrical songs, and this one is one of their best. Due to other songs being …

Top 5 Songs from Sakanacton’s Shinshiro

These lists will inevitably become more and more difficult to make. From here on out, I would prefer to make a Top 6 because even 5 songs wouldn’t include the most outstanding songs from each album. I should follow my own rules and make it a nice even (or odd…) 5 as the top choices. …

Top 5 Songs from Sakanaction’s Night Fishing

These lists will get progressively more interesting and, of course, more difficult. It seems that with every album that Sakanaction released, they had more and more amazing songs. This list is still probably easier than some lists I’ll make for later albums. 5. Aishu Train I was a little surprised when Sakanaction chose this song …

Top 5 Songs from Sakanaction’s GO TO THE FUTURE

Sakanaction is currently my favorite Japanese band. They’re one of my favorite bands ever. All great bands had to begin somewhere, so I am going pick what I thought were the best 5 songs from this album. This is their first album, and their were only 8 songs to choose from, so in some ways …

Top 5 Sakanaction Music Videos

One problem with making Top 5 lists is that you never know when another potential candidate will become available. I wanted to add a little note to the title of this, being “Pre-2013”. I could limit this list to only Sakanaction music videos that were released before 2013. For now, I will just keep the …

Song of the Week for Jan. 20th, 2013

This week is easy because this song is being released in just a few days as a single: “Music” by Sakanaction Not exactly the most original title (the B-side to this single has a name that can be translated as “movie”…), but the song itself feels original enough. It reminds me a lot of “Endless”, …

Here’s a Japanese song, but you wouldn’t know it: This storyends by winnie I have the lyrics for this song as another blog post. If you were to Google Search it, this site would come up. I and many others wonder why this band and this song are not more popular. It has a catchy …

Song of the Week for Nov. 4th, 2012

Back to Japanese songs this week. 星に願いを by flumpool The song’s title is the exact same title as a song from Pinocchio-“When You Wish Upon a Star”. This song’s tune by flumpool is very different than the tune (and tone) that the Disney song took. The titles are the same, but what is being said …

Song of the Week for Oct. 14th, 2012

There are some artists like Suneohair and Sakanaction that I could spend months giving them “Songs of the Week”. I think this is my first one for Suneohair. 悲しみロックフェスティバル by Suneohair There will be definitely more from this artist in the future. Suneohair is basically one guy (and whoever helps him to produce his music). …
