Maybe this will be a regular feature, posting on music that I “discover” while watching music shows. I’m listening to Tatsuro Yamashita right now while writing this but at work, I’ve been listening to Southern All Stars a lot. Keeps me awake and my colleagues are wondering where did those good-looking boys I used to watch on my iPad go.
My top favorite at the moment is 東京 VICTORY (short version):
They sang this at KOHAKU 2014 together with the controversial Peace & Hi-lite:
Too bad there’s no translation on Sazan’s songs (maybe they need younger fans to do the romanji and translate the lyrics for them) that I can find on the net.
I also love Ima, Sakihokoru Hanatachi, by another ojisan band, Kobukuro:
I heard them on MUSIC STATION’S SUPER LIVE 2014, which I watched simultaneously with SBS’ GAYO DAEJUN, where I discovered Back by Infinite. So for a change, a boy band. (My colleagues would be relieved.)
I don’t know a thing about Infinite to save my life and when I listen to music, I don’t look at the face–okay, fine, VISUALS.
So ojisan or boy band, as long as it’s earfun, then kikimashou.
