My J-pop 1sts! October 29, 2008

Filed under: ~Writing~ — solarblade @ 9:16 am

So I’m going to share with you guys my 1st song with each of my artists

  • AAA – “BLOOD on FIRE” (Yeah, definitly crashed upon it on Youtube.)
  • abingdon boys school – “Nephilim” (Yea, I did come late with them, but this song did get me into them.)
  • access – “Doubt & Trust” (Would you be surprised?  C’mon D-Gray-Man!)
  • Ai Otsuka – “SMILY” (Yea, not the best song to start listening with, trust me…)
  • Aira Mitsuki – “Colorful Tokyo Sounds NO.9” (No surprise there.)
  • alan – “Ashita e no Sanka” (same thing here as well.)
  • Ami Suzuki – “drive me crazy” (Oddball track to have listened to first since it is a Sony album track right?)
  • Anna Tsuchiya – “cocoon” (I’m still crying over the fact of it’s album version)
  • Aural Vampire – “Darkwave Surfer” (Thanks to Selly of course.)
  • Aya Hirano – “Unnamed World” (I kind of wished it was on her debut album.)
  • Ayumi Hamasaki – “evolution” (Yea, it’s definitly everyone’s first song of hers in some fashion.)
  • BoA – “MOTO” (I started with hearing Korean BoA before moving to the Japanese one.  I still love the song to death.)
  • BONNIE PINK – “Pump it up!” (Definitly late starting with her and hearing all the praise from the guys, I had to hear this first.)
  • capsule – “Catch My Breath” (I don’t remember why it was but I did get their entire discography right at that timeframe, so I’m still unsure if this was my first full listened song.
  • chatmonchy – “Hira Hira Hiraku Himitsu no Tobira” (When I did the review that was actually my first listen to them.)
  • Crystal Kay – “Motherland” (Yeah, this was also caused by anime watching, this time Fullmetal Alchemist.)
  • day after tomorrow – “Itazura na KISS” (Inuyasha this time around.)
  • Dream – “NIGHT OF FIRE” (Actually, this was pretty coincedental because I first listened to HINOI Team’s version and read there was version and like Dream’s better.)
  • Eri Nobuchika – “SING A SONG” (I’ve actually had her album for quite some time before I featured her and read Lex’s review of the song and I wanted to hear it, turns out its my favorite from her.)
  • Gackt – “Vanilla” (Surprising right?  It was pretty early on and was the only Gackt song I had until REDEMPTION.)
  • GIRL NEXT DOOR – “Guuzen no Kakuritsu” (IS this not shocking….)
  • HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR – “PRIDE” (GUNDAM, thank you very much!)
  • Hitomi Shimatani – “Perseus” (Still the best dance track she’s done.)
  • ICEMAN – “CYCLONE MUTANT” (There were other tracks I got the same time, but I think this was the exact first one.)
  • immi – “LOCAL TRAIN” (Yes, from the BEAUTIFUL TECHNO album. but it’s recently losing points with me for some reason.)
  • Kana – “Hebi-Ichigo” (Yep, definitly because of the PV for it.)
  • Kanon Wakeshima – “still doll” (Well, what else could I really put down?)
  • Kaya – “Walkure” (I did have the whole GLITTER album, but this was the first one that I listened to fully before the other tracks.)
  • Koda Kumi – “real Emotion (English Version) or “Chase” (reason for the two because I don’t really thing the English version counted and since Chase was also the first PV I’ve seen from her.)
  • Leah Dizon – “Vanilla” (another track titled Vanilla? How coincedental!)
  • m.o.v.e – “come together” (still everyone thinks it’s their best track and I highly agree.)
  • Mai Kuraki – “DANCING” (Strange that this was my first track while “DIAMOND WAVE” was just being released (single) wise.)
  • Maki Goto – “SOME BOYS! TOUCH!” (Ironic huh?)
  • Mami Kawada – “PSI-missing” (It isn’t too obvious right?)
  • MAXIMUM THE HORMONE – “What’s up, people?!” (Death Note caused this introduction)
  • MEG – “HEART” (Pretty recent discovery)
  • MELL – “Red fraction” (Still one of her best tracks so far in the era.)
  • MilkyWay – “Anataboshi” (Looks at Kanon’s comment)
  • melody. – “HOPE” (Had READY TO GO!  Buzzed through and it caught my attention.)
  • Mika Nakashima “Sakurairo Maukoro” (You can thank AOL for this one as well.  Still one of her bests IMO.)
  • misono – “VS” (Really? 3 in a row of debut tracks)
  • miyavi – “Jibun Kakumei -2003-” (My first track from him was never on an album, but it’s nice to hear the 2008 version at least.)
  • Momoi Haruko – “AKIHABALOVE” or “Lumica” (I’m not sure what to make AKIHABALOVE…I mean it’s originally Momoi’s but Perfume was also on it…If not then Lumica was my first listen with Momoi alone.)
  • Morning Musume – “LOVE Machine” or “Say Yeah! Motto Miracle Night” (This time I know I got both of the songs at the same time, but I have no clue which came first for me, but both are great tracks.)
  • Nami Tamaki – “Believe” (It wasn’t even from GUNDAM, thank Youtube for this one.)
  • Nana Kitade – “Kesenai Tsumi” (You guessed right again, the power of anime strikes again from Fullmetal Alchemist.)
  • Nana Mizuki – “Astrogation” (Not surprised, but I’ve had this track minus its B-sides for a while.)
  • Nichika – “Edelweiss” (First saw the PV before getting the album and wow did I love it.)
  • Perfume – “AKIHABALOVE” or “Electro World” (Same reason I put on Momoi’s for this track, but Electro World was my first Perfume-only track.)
  • Phantasmagoria – “Actuate Eden” (Blame Don for this one!)
  • Rina Aiuchi – “Run up” or “double hearted” (I swear I heard double hearted on AOL Radio before I listened to Run up but I’m not entirely certain.)
  • SAWA – “ManyColors” (Not the best song to start her with.)
  • Sound Horizon – “Meiou” (Well Don did introduce me into the awesomeness that is this song.
  • T.M.Revolution – “Albireo” (Another off the wall start for him, since then there’s been so many other T.M.R tracks that are better.)
  • The Candy Spooky Theater – “Devilish Kidnapper” (Albeit really new, I’m finding myself loving Halloween again._
  • Tommy February6 – “Can’t take my eyes off of you” (Yeah I know it’s a remake and all but it’s a good one.)
  • Tommy Heavenly6 – “Wait till I can dream” (I’m definitly not sure this was right but it is the first burned CD i made and this was the 1st one on TH6
  • Tsukiko Amano – “Devil Flamingo” (The 1st track doesn’t even count, but going through “A MOON CHILD IN THE SKY” This was the first lyrical tracks so it stays with me.)
  • Utada Hikaru – “Simple and Clean” (Another one of those are you really surprised that this was the track?)
  • Yousei Teikoku – “Weiß Flügel”  Interesting song to start with their latest single and stuff.)
