~Favorite Japanese Bands and songs~
I started becoming interested in Japanese music and bands when I was around 11 years old and I was widening my repertoire of anime series I would watch. The first song I just immediately fell in love with was an ending to “Inuyasha” called “Fukai Mori” by Do As Infinity. It sounded so amazing and even though at the time I couldn’t understand the words it was just so beautiful. Since those days there are a lot more bands and songs I know of now here are my top bands and songs I love. Check them out and tell me what you think of them. 🙂
1. Top band is still: Do As Infinity- their sound is so emotional and pulls you in. My favorite songs are “Fukai Mori” and “Rakuen”
2.Utada Hikaru- She is such a great singer and her songs are fantastic. The first time I heard her music was in “Kingdom Hearts” and I immediately wanted to find her other stuff. My top songs for her are: “Stay Gold”, “Goodbye Happiness” and “Simple and Clean”.
3.Versailles Philharmonic Quintet- A visual kei band that I had the pleasure of seeing live several years ago before one of the members, Jasmine You passed away. They are gorgeous to look at as well as have a Castlevania like feel to the sound. My favorite songs are: “Aristocrats symphony” and “The Revenant Choir”
4.Rei Fu- First song of hers I heard was an ending to the series “Bleach” called “Life is like a boat” which is still my favorite of her songs. I also like the song “One-bite” and “Suki”
5. A very quirky and interesting singer is: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu- I like her and my husband gets such a kick out of all her songs and music videos. I showed her video “PonPonPon” to him and my daughter and it created a obsession for him ha ha. My top songs for her are “Candy Candy” and “Kira Kira Killer”. If you have never seen any of her stuff go now and check her out, it is an experience. 0_0.
So these are my top 5 for now. Have you ever listened to their stuff? What’s some of your favorite Japanese Bands or singers? Tell me in the comments! :3
