    Covers of previous h!p songs and remixes have never counted in this poll, so the new versions of old MM singles on the “Best Updated Morning Musume” album are NOT eligible. Neither are the Juice-Juice remix versions of the indie singles, the Berryz Anata nashi 2013 version, the Momochi Yurushite Nyan remix, or “Cabbage Hakusho Hara Hen”.  However, covers of songs that are new to HP, such as “Kono Machi” are eligible. You may not vote for songs by  HP associated groups that aren’t part of HP such as Lovendor, Up Up girls, and Tasaki Asahi.

Please feel free to spread the word! The results will be better the more people vote. The deadline for voting is JANUARY 1ST. I will probably have the results video within a week.

Here are the videos form 2011 and 2012 to give you an idea of what the results will look like.

My Top 10 H!p Songs of 2011

Published by under berryz,buono,c-ute,Momusu,S/mileage

PLEASE VOTE IN MY TOP H!P SONGS OF 2011 FAN POLL/ VIDEO PROJECT! Response has been pretty good so far (we’re at 30+ people voting in about five days), but I really want to get as many votes as possible (at least 100 would be great) for the most meaningful results. I can say at this point that there are two songs that have been fighting it out for first place with another two being possible contenders. I’m so excited to see which song wins!

I thought I’d publicly post MY top 20 list of 2011, since I won’t be making a video of my personal list this year. Listing from #20 to #1.  (this isn’t by points for the poll, in other words. Don’t get confused! When voting, be sure your favorite song is marked +10, second favorite +9, and so on down the list)

20. Kachoii Uta, Mobekimasu- I especially like the C-ute version

19. Hatsukoi Anata e, S/mileage- S/mileage seems to get some pretty good B-sides

18. Jishin Motte, Yume o Motte Tobitatsu kara, Takahashi Ai- Really grew on my after the 10th gen auditions

17. Momoiro Sparkling, C-uteGreat summer song, and I love the dance

16. Natsu Dakara, Buono- Has some lovely harmonizing. Very relaxing song

15. Herione ni Narou ka, Berryz Kobo- Good musical hooks, and my favorite effort by Berryz in what was a disappointing year for them (IMHO)

14. Give Me Love, Morning Musume- Dramatic!

13. Majidesuka Ska, Morning Musume- A very joyful and energetic song, and a good welcome for 9th gen

12. Shortcut, S/mileage- Always gets stuck in my head

11. Motto Aishite Hoshii no, Morning Musume- I think this B-side is way under-rated!

10. Tachiagaaru, S/mileage- Another S/mileage song that always gets stuck in my head

9. 1/3 Junjou na Kanjo, Buono- Love hearing the girls use deeper voices since idol music is often so squeaky

8.  Busu ni Naranai Tetsugaku, Mobekimasu- Do I just like it because I’ve watched it be performed so many times? I’m not sure, but I do like it quite a bit

7. Ok Yeah!, Morning Musume- Hope this becomes a concert staple (and I suspect it will)

6. Kono Chikyuu no Heiwa.. blah blah blah, Morning Musume- Long title is too long. Song is a nice tribute to classic MM style

5. Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai, Morning Musume- I’m surprised these two ended up so close together, but they did. Finally Sayu gets a chance to shine and MM gets their weirdest PV yet (possibly)

4. Silver no Udedokei, Morning Musume- Riho proves she deserves her new lead spot with her live performance of this song

3. Only You, Morning Musume- Love the chorus so much. Itoshi no kiiimiii eeeee

2. Kiss Me Aishiteru, C-ute- Fantastic dance, and amazing solo lines by Chisato

And my favorite song is…..

1. Uchouten Love, S/mileage- It’s just the most perfect S/mileage song. I could listen to it over and over again (and I did watching the live S/mileage auditions) Cute, catchy, and bitter sweet in that it’s the last for the original S/mileage lineup. Makes me long for the S/mileage that could have been

And that’s it! My top 20 of 2011. Stay tuned for other “favorite” and “least favorites” of 2011 including PVs, albums, dances, and costumes.

Top 20 Current H!p Members

I’ve finished my most recent video project! I put a lot of work into this one, and I think it came out pretty well (though I still can’t seem to top my Eri/Jun/Lin graduation OPV). This time it’s my Top 20 Current H!p members. I had to get this finished before Ai-chan graduates, or she couldn’t be included. The song is “All for One and One for All” because that HAS to be the song for something like this.

Hope you like it! The old youtube channel surpassed 400,000 views a while ago, and I’m pretty excited about that. Big thanks to everyone who’s watched my videos!

Songs of Summer

Published by under Ayaya,berryz,buono,c-ute,Momusu,video

It’s summer refreshment time! So please, kick back and enjoy looking at this picture of my refreshment provided by International Wota. I bought ingredients and stuff to make a blueberry crisp with icecream! Here you can see the crisp editing a video. (Fun fact: All my videos are edited by baked goods)

Within the idol sub-genre of the Jpop genre, there are several sub-sub-genres, mostly seasonally based. There’s the “songs about spending (or not spending) Christmas with that special someone” genre (i.e. Aitai Lonely Christmas, Pittari Shitai Xmas). There’s the “it’s spring so we are mandated by Japanese law to sing about sakura” genre (i.e. Sakura Mankai, Sakura Chirari) But perhaps no idol genre is quite as prolific as the “summer song” genre.

So what constitutes a “summer song”? I put forth the following three qualifiers:

1. The song must be released within the time period of May through August.

2. The song must be light, upbeat, and cheerful. Preferably with a “refreshing” feel

3. The word “summer” or “natsu” doesn’t have to be in the title, but the lyrics and/or the PV must contain Japanese “summer” imagery which may include any of the following:

Use of the word “summer” or “natsu”, watermelon, yukata, festivals, fireworks, beaches, bikinis, bright colored beachwear, surfboards, beach balls, squirt guns, excessively sunny outdoor scenes, bubbles, ice cream, and shaved ice. Let me know if you think I missed any important ones.

Using these criteria, we can definitely say that not every song released during the summer is actually a “summer” song. I would also argue that many songs that include the word “summer” are not songs in the “summer” genre. For example, S/mileage’s “Yume Miru 15sai”  meets qualification numbers 1and 3 with a May release date, many uses of the word “natsu”, and mention of festivals and fireworks, but I wouldn’t consider it to be a true summer song because it fails qualification number 2. The overall feel is just too dark to really be in the summer genre. Morning Musume’s “Summer Night Town” and Berryz Kobo’s “Natsu Remember You” would be excluded for the same reason.

So, for your refreshment and viewing pleasure, here’s a compilation of some of H!p’s summeriest.

Oh Hi Yurina

Published by under berryz,reviews

Berryz (or should it be Berryz’s?) new PV is out. Overall, a big improvement from their last one (but then, almost anything would be an improvement over that).

A quick review, and then about what really interests me right now: Yurina Kumai.

Costumes are (mostly) great! Cool and flattering street clothes always work well. My only problem is Chinami. She’s dressed like a bartender. Then there’s the Lady Gaga inspired blond wigs and dramatic eye-makeup, which I sort of love sort of hate, but mostly love.

The song is like Dakishimetex2 and Nachuu Koi wo Yatteru You Know?’s love child. It’s no doubt a Berryz song, but it feels like it’s been done by them before. The dance scenes in the PV remind me a lot of DakiDaki too.  Overall, I guess I like it, but that’s about as enthusiastic as I can be.

So, about Yurina. This is the second single in a row that she’s been front and center and featured vocally. In the early days of Berryz, she was one of the 4 featured girls, but for the last few years she had sort of faded back to join “the other three”, with Momo/Sako/Miya remaining at the front. Then, BAM! Shining Power comes along and she’s more featured than she’s ever been. She even got a different costume from everyone else for that one in both the PV and the concert version. Herione ni Narou ka proves that it wasn’t a fluke. The management really is suddenly interested in pushing Yurina a whole lot, and that makes me wonder why. It’s not her vocal talent, because IMHO she’s one of the weakest singers in Berryz. Could it be that they just discovered that she’s the most visually appealing member? (Yeah, I said it. Love Momo, but she’s got nothing on Yurina looks-wise). Maybe (long shot, but I hope it’s true) they’re pushing her because she’s going to be starting a real modeling career. She’d be so good at it! Maybe some of the other front girls are thinking about graduating soon, and they want to get fans used to seeing Yurina in front instead. Maybe Yurina is graduating soon and they want to get her set up for her career after Berryz. Maybe they’re just bored and wanted to try something new. Whatever the reason, I’m curious to see if this trend will continue.


Any other theories?
