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”, …

Song of the Week for Nov. 25th, 2012

Flyelaf released a new album. There will certainly be some more songs from that album on this list in the future. For now: “Fire Fire” by Flyleaf I really hate to say it, but Flyleaf’s newest album might be their worst album. Now that the bad stuff is out of the way, I would say if you …

Song of the Week for Nov. 18th, 2012

Switching from lyrical to non-lyrical this week: “Sweet Cube” by Automagic Here is an artist (Japanese) that rivals many of the artists on the Ninja Tune label (U.K.). But this is supposed to be Song of the Week rather than Artist of the Week, so I’ll just say that this song is good. This song …

Song of the Week for Nov. 11th, 2012

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. 28th, 2012

Here’s a wonderful song that is one of the most played songs I own. “The Grid” by Daft Punk Daft Punk did a phenomenal job on the Tron: Legacy Soundtrack, and this is one of the songs that deserves to be mentioned. Featuring relatively the same voiceover work that Jeff Bridges did for the original …

Song of the Week for Oct. 21st, 2012

Switching back to English songs temporarily… “Chasm” by Flyleaf When I used my brain to try to immediately think of a Flyleaf song, this was the one that came to mind. If I think for a few more seconds, I could think of a lot, so you will very likely see many more Flyleaf songs …

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). …

Song of the Week for Oct. 7th, 2012

For now, we’re continuing with Japanese bands and songs. 歩み by GREEEEN I first heard this song on a plane ride from the US to Incheon (on my way to Japan). With a 12-hour-ish flight, this song was able to be repeated many times. I don’t know how many times I played the song, but …

Song of the Week for Sep. 30th, 2012

The last song of September: SWEET RAIN SWEET HOME by Fuzzy Control There’s something simple about this song that makes it likable. It’s not terribly fast nor involving, but it keeps the same tone throughout the song. This is actually the first song I have heard from this band. I don’t know if this style …
