Song of the Week for Sep. 23rd, 2012

Here’s an interesting one: ダンデライオン by Bump of Chicken I really like Bump of Chicken. I think they do a fantastic job lyrically, and it helps that they know how to make a song sound good, too. This song is interesting because the pace and tone don’t exactly fit the lyrics. The lyrics start with talking …

Song of the Week for Sep. 16th, 2012

Here’s a good one: 17才 by Base Ball Bear This song is so good that I sang it at karaoke twice in the same day. It was the first time I had ever sung it at karaoke, and it was so good I just had to sing it again. This really could be a perfect …

Song of the Week for Sep. 9th, 2012

I may be doing all JPop songs this month. Here’s another Japanese song: MirrorDance by androp The music video alone is an achievement. The first time you hear this song, you’ll likely like the chorus more than the rest of the song. All good songs have good choruses of course. I think this song does …

Song of the Week for Sep. 2nd, 2012

Welcome to September. Sonic Fireworks by avengers in sci-fi Here is a song (and a music video) that is almost too good. The song is so intricate with its techno-inspired beats that never feel too heavy or forced. The techno sound is to be expected by avengers in sci-fi, and they use many techniques well …

Song of the Week for Aug 26th, 2012

“On and On” by Chasen I find myself going to their MySpace to listen to this song frequently. This is a song I wish I could sing at karaoke. It’s partially because I think it’s good, and partially because I think I can sing it properly. Well, unless they become huge in Japan (or through …

Song of the Week for Aug 19th, 2012

Perhaps I will switch between Japanese songs and English songs every week. This week is a Japanese song: アイデンティティ by Sakanaction This is not the first Sakanaction song I ever heard, but it was one of the best. It’s hard to decide what my favorite Sakanaction song is, but this would likely contend for the …

Song of the Week for Aug 12th, 2012

So going back to English songs this week with: “Yesterdays” by Switchfoot I heard this song maybe a year or two ago, but I guess I never really listened to it until recently. This is quite a poetic song. We are not sure exactly who is being talked about, except for a friend that the …

Song of the Week for Aug 5th, 2012

I am temporarily (hopefully permanently?) bringing back the song of the week that I was doing a few years back. There seem to be “plenty” of songs I could do. Today, I will do one of a JPop band. I don’t know if I have done Japanese songs in the past, but I certainly have …

Revitalizing the Song of the Week

Next week, the Song of the Week feature that has been absent for nearly four years on this blog is returning. I have too many new songs under my belt not to be able to share a new song every week…or at least a few times every month. Now, there is a list of all …

Song for Week of September 28th, 2008

Here’s an interesting one: “Maybe Its Maybeline” by Relient K I never thought a Relient K song would make this list. Why? I’ve found my two or three favorite artists, and I’ve kind of stuck with them. I like to think I give each artist a few songs to impress me. I didn’t find anything with …
