So before I start this I have to say next week’s will be out on Friday because I won’t be home for the next week…plus when I do week 20 will be out and well that’ll be 10 songs XD. So here are the 5!
1. school food punishment – butterfly swimmer
The Song: butterfly swimmer is best known as the group’s second single and follow-up to “futuristic imagination”. Quite nice!
The Video: Their video’s have usually been quite artistic and butterfly swimmer does not disappoint on that effect. It starts out with Yumi singing by herself in black and white (thrown in with some water effects). Once the slow part stops, the color gets added and the band appears more. It’s still in its core, a performance video so it might not be the most original concept, but it’s pretty ^_^
So why’s it on your iPhone, Brett?: I love the song itself even though it’s not my favorite song from them lol. It’s pretty and I love the long intro part before it gets into it’s experimental pop/rock sound that just goes well together.
2. Hilary Duff – Party Up
The Song: Yeah it’s an album song from her debut album, Metamorphosis.
So why’s it on your iPhone, Brett?: Party Up is pretty much a party song through and through and I love the fun energy it brings to my ears when I listen to it. It’s quite the song and doing the ~la la la la la la la~ of the song is really catchy.
3. Ayumi Hamasaki – Marionette
The Song: Marionette was an album song used to promote Ayu’s album, GUILTY and one of the darkest songs on said album as well ^^
The Video: It’s definitely one of the concept-heavy PVs Ayu loves to do in her career. To me, it’s also one of the creepiest one’s she’s done as well since it’s so dark and Ayu looks so possessed since she’s the marionette and her pupils have white irises in it. It gets better especially the choregraphy starts to shine a bit more and the story gets a little more exciting but just as confuzzling as before XD
So why’s it on your iPhone, Brett?: It’s dark and dramatic and combines the good things Ayu can do into one song which I love to death hahaha. Besides “Mirror”, Marionette is my favorite from the album and good reason it stayed o the iPhone.
4. Kana Nishino – Every Boy Every Girl
The Song: Every Boy Every Girl is an album song from Kanayan’s 3rd album, Thank you, Love.
So why’s it on your iPhone, Brett?: It’s on there because it’s just so catchy and shows off a good amount of attitude from Kana by being all aggressive about love XD. Just a really cool song and she needs more of these songs!!!
5. Koda Kumi – That Ain’t Cool feat. Fergie
The Song: Well, Kuu has done collaborations before but with someone like Fergie? Totally came out of nowhere for me. It was part of the “MOON” single.
The Video: Most of the PV is pretty much the two ladies performing in a parking garage (hmmm original). It’s such a near-lesbian experience for those two because they are just touching all over….DAMN Kuu!!! Either way, it wasn’t so bad though the storyline is kind of an afterthought because most of it was close-up shots with Kuu and Fergie…very sexual!
So why’s it on your iPhone, Brett?: It’s clean lyrically but it does have some moments. That Ain’t Cool is quite nice and while it was more Fergie than Kuu, it’s a nice enough collaboration and could’ve been handled a WHOLE LOT worse XD.
SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK ABOUT THIS?
