Voices that potentially sell more than their names

When I stop pretending to love a single genre of anything, the entertainment industry seems to be eternally border-less. The things it has to offer throughout its lifetime can never be appreciated enough. Some will tell you that you cannot find good music if you don't listen enough. The thing is in 2018, cross platform … Continue reading Voices that potentially sell more than their names

Most played songs in my personal list — Round of May 2018

Most played songs in my personal list — Round of May 2018

I had reminded myself that I would eventually get back to this list. Though instead of updating the post, I thought that it would be somewhat cooler if I go about... Billboard style; that is to just make another list with maybe old songs. Same deal, different time.

The most popular instrument in ‘popular’ Anisong is a guitar?!

The most popular instrument in ‘popular’ Anisong is a guitar?!

On the other hand, not so much in J-Pop outside of anime....   Note that I used the term popular twice in the title. There are anisongs, and then there are anisongs in which you just happen to know... ...or maybe because they are actually good, hence being popular? Maybe it is just my preference … Continue reading The most popular instrument in ‘popular’ Anisong is a guitar?!

Do check out other songs by them. These guys are more pop … Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: [Alexandros] – ワタリドリ (Wataridori)

Blasting My Headphones: RADWIMPS – 前前前世 (Zen Zen Zense)

Having been astounded by ALL OFF's Refrain Boy, I want to let in two of the more traditional rock songs that I've come to take huge interest in. First up we have an insert song from the ever so high grossing anime film, 君の名は。(Kimi no Na Wa./Your Name).     https://www.youtube.com/embed/PDSkFeMVNFs   Like movie, like song. It went and … Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: RADWIMPS – 前前前世 (Zen Zen Zense)

Blasting My Headphones: ALL OFF – リフレインボーイ (Refrain Boy)

Blasting My Headphones: ALL OFF – リフレインボーイ (Refrain Boy)

The time when anime songs happen to be pure J-Rock is now rare. ALL OFF however managed to save us some time with their great tunes. https://www.youtube.com/embed/lZLEXj52lcc   This seriously bad-ass rock song is used as an ending to the anime Mob Psycho 100. Attention to the details Yes. You did hear fluent English in there! … Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: ALL OFF – リフレインボーイ (Refrain Boy)
