Songs I’ve listened to as of recent.

Well, it’s been two days, and even though I’m a little behind on schoolwork, I’m going to review again for you!

Yoo Seung Jun’s Shut Up!!

Recently, I listened to a song called Shut Up!! on a YouTube AMV (anime music video). I was addicted like crazy. Well, click play on the above, and you’ll see what I’m talking about. It’s the AMV I watched.

Ha ha, I really love that song. The singer/rapper for the song is a guy who is from South Korea. He lived in the US for a while and was actually banned from returning to Korea until his step father died. Then he allowed back for the funeral.

Ayumi Lee’s Wrongful Meeting

I found this song when I was browsing on CrunchyRoll. It’s another Korean song, too. (I’ve really betrayed my Japanese blog, haven’t I?) I liked it live, it sounded pretty good. There’s no music video (that I’m aware of), but at least it’s popular enough to get YouTube videos, huh?

Anyway, the singer debuted in girl-group Sugar. They occasionally did Japanese songs, too. Ayumi fit in perfectly in that scene since she grew up and spent the majority of her life in Japan (despite being Korean).

Waii’s ตกหลุมรัก

Haha, now we’re getting into urban Thai music. This is one catchy tune, parodying on one of Beethoven’s pieces. At first, the language was quite… weird to me. But now I really love her music! It’s very unique compared to other urban artists.

Sorry that I don’t have an western title and I used symbols. It’s pretty tough finding her music.

Hyori Lee’s U-Go-Girl

That’s a live performance of the song. Hyori Lee paired up with another girl. I think it’s pretty good.

It’s also Hyori’s comeback single. Her sales weren’t going so good before, so now she’s doing a different type of hip hop. It’s much more original now, even though I loved her old music!

It’s in Korean.

Thelma Aoyama’s ONE WAY

She’s a goddess on the vocals. She’s also a newbie in the music industry, debuting back in 2007. What does that mean? She’s definitely got natural talent. I love this song, along with her other song “GOOD TIME” on the same single. I love listening to this song in the car!

Psst, does anyone know if she was born in America? Or Canada? Or something? Her English is flawless!

Chieko Kawabe’s Mermaid (Mama made)

Haha, for one reason or another, Chie’s my favorite singer. I’m in love with her music, and recently, I’m in love with this song. It’s so… catchy and yet, slow. It’s addicting. I just love it!

Chie’s French and Japanese (although she may not really look it). She’s also a model and actress, starring in the Sailor Moon musicals as Sailor Mercury and being casted in the live-action Sailor Moon series as Naru.

Dohzi-T ft. Thelma Aoyama – Yaku Soku no Hi

I heard this one browsing YouTube’s profile for Universal Music Japan. I fell in love with the song; it’s so beautiful, and I swore I knew the chorus’s voice from somewhere — Thelma Aoyama! That made me even happier. I really have no information on the artist. They’re pretty unwell-known, so I couldn’t even look on Wikipedia. However, after flying all over the internet and translating what seemed like a thousand Japanese pages, I found a download! Yay!

And that concludes today’s post. I hope you guys found your newest favorite song or at least something you like.

Rina-chan, out!

Foxxi misQ Review.

Foxxi misQ is a Japanese hip-hop/R&B group. Here’s a picture of them for you:

They’re basically the Destiny Child of Japan. They were picked out and put together to create an Asian version of DC. They all competed on NTV’s Uta Star audition and were the final cut. Face 2 fAKE formed the group, and they all worked several months before debut to become fit. They’re also the poster girls for Skechers Japan.

As of right now, they have one album (GLOSS) and six singles, all released since 2006. While their sales aren’t top notch right now, only hope and new material can boost it. We’ll have to see what’s in store for “Tha F.Q. Style.” According to their website, in November, a seventh single will be released. Also, this month, on the 24th, there will be another release. Due to the language barrier (and a horrible translator), I’m confused as to whether there will be a new album or not, although it mentions one. I guess I’ll have to wait it out and see.

I recommend songs:

  • A-L-I-V-E
  • X B F
  • I like it
  • Tha F.Q’s Style

The meaning behind the name:

Foxxi is “Foxy!” and misQ is “misc” or “miscellanious”.

There is no lead singer and they rotate between leaders with each song.

Everyone gets the spotlight.

Members:

YU-A

YU-A was born on May 29, 1986 in Hokkaido, Japan. She did apparatus gymnastics and performed in public.She also aimed to be a professional in dancing and singing, she started taking lessons.

YU-A is the one that goes by her own pace and time.

DEM

DEM was born on December 23, 1984 in Osaka, Japan. She sang and played the classical piano during middle school and went to a music dancing school, taking vocal lessons. She was fascinated by street performances and club stage events.

She is the “simple” and “innocent” one of the group.

CHiE

CHiE was born on November 17, 1984 in the Saitama Prefecture and Spain. At the age of six, she began playing the piano and at the age of fourteen, she was in a park in France, creating original music on a guitar. At the age of sixteen, she was active in mainly Tokyo with jazz bands and had chorus vocal experience in lives. She is still affected by jazz today.

She is the “cool” one of the group.

Here are a few more pictures for your fan needs, and make sure to check them out — whether it’s YouTube, their website, or just a random playlist. Just make sure you listen to them!
