I was looking at a PV review of Ongaku Gatas‘ new single Come Together over at CK’s blog which mentioned the song of the same name by The Beatles. I, too, was secretly hoping this single would be a cover of that evergreen Beatles track.
That turned out not to be the case. Nevertheless when listening to the song I found it was very clearly influenced by the band anyway. I thought I’d make a post about my findings concerning this, but then I remembered this is by no means the first H!P song to feature strong Beatles influences… and this got me thinking further, until I reached the following conclusion:
If you love Hello! Project’s music, there is a good chance you would also love the music of The Beatles.
So with this conclusion reached, I knew what I basically wanted was to do a series of posts where I could preach about the awesomeness of both Hello! Project and The Beatles who are arguably my favorite band of all time. In addition, I want my audience to be the Hello! Project fans. However, successfully pulling off a string of entertaining posts like that would be a task too difficult for me alone.
And so, I decided to make it a roundtable feature. A collaborative blogging effort between me and two great, great bloggers; the aforementioned CK, as well as my trustworthy manwhore, wu-san. Both of these two were very enthusiastic about the idea and I’m honored to be able write with them. I don’t know what we’ll come up with, and the only thing I can tell you is that we’ll try to somehow tackle both The Beatles and Hello! Project in each and every post we do in this series.
With me mostly being a later era Beatles fan, wu preferring the early stuff, CK simply liking all of it and all three of us having similarly unique tastes in Hello! Project, we’ll do our best in giving you varied thoughts on these two producers of music and finding different ways of connecting the two.
Okay, so that’s basically the gist of it. Click here to move on to the first post in the series.
