[PV] Aqua Timez – Chiisana Tenohira


I accidentally stumbled upon this song. I was watching Music Station one day (featuring Mr.Children) when I discovered this group. They were the first group to sing in that show and instantly I liked this song. The most addictive part of this song, IMO, is the chorus part – it is an earworm!

The song’s lyric and melody is written by the lead singer, Futoshi. The Japanese title of this song is “小さな掌” and it means “Small/Little Palm”.

[PV] Mr.Children – Tabidachi no Uta Live vers.


Although this is not a HQ version (sorry, can’t seem to find the HQ :( ), I like to watch this video very much. Not to mention that I like the song too :) . After watching this vid, I do wish to go to their concert in Japan. I heard someone mentioned in some forum that Mr.Children concerts are one of the must-go live concerts in Japan. Maybe I should check out that Home DVD that they released during the same time as this single was released O_O.

Tabidachi no Uta (旅立ちの唄) is the theme song of the hit movie, “Koizora” (Sky of Love). In English, it would mean “The Song of Journey”. The kanji for “唄” here is not the usual “歌” that I know of. I have no idea why Sakurai-san uses this kanji. Maybe I should ask my sensei :)

As always, the song lyrics and melody is written by Sakurai-san.

[PV] Chemistry – Saigo no Kawa – Zou no Senaka theme


This is the theme song to the movie, Zou no Senaka (Back of the Elephant). The English title will be “The Last River”. The title in Japanese is “最期の川”. When I first watched this PV (without knowing that it is a theme song), I have already guessed that it may be a song to some drama/movie. Well, the PV has a story-plot to it. After I found out, I thought that the scenes in the PV were taken from the movie but they were not. The actor in the PV looked familiar, I have seen him before in those J-dramas that I have watched but I don’t know his name.

I went on to do some R&D on the movie and wow, I think I like the plot. Even though it’s about death :/ I have posted some information links to the movie, if you are interested. Also included the song lyrics’ link and I also found a translation link to it. The lyrics was written by the author of the novel, which the movie was based on.

Regarding the song, it brought back the feelings of the time when I was really really obsessed with Chemistry. Hence, I really really like this song. I hope you like it, too ^^.

Note: As usual, I don’t really have the MQ/HQ of J-PV. This is the LQ version but it’s clear enough.

[PV] Suga Shikao – Gogo no PARADE


I only have 2 PVs of Suga Shikao: Gogo no PARADE (Afternoon Parade) and Shunkashuutou (The Four Seasons). The latter is a slow song therefore I decided to upload the former instead. I accidentally discovered his songs actually via Shunkashuutou PV. I thought it was a good song after I have listened to it and wanted to find out more. Then I managed to get the files for his All Best Singles and WOW! a revelation for me. Afterwards, I found out that he wrote Yozora no Mukou, that SMAP song!

This song has an upbeat tempo and even though it is the usual genre that I normally listen to but everytime I want something to cheer me up, I will listen to this song. It has my feet moving along with the song :) .

Nothing much to say about the PV as Japanese PV don’t usually have story-line plot like the Korean ones. But he appeared in this PV so you can find out what he looks like. When it comes to music, I am not really concern about looks as I think their voices are a more deciding factor for me.

BTW, I’m looking for his other PVs. If you happen to have it, please share ^^, onegaishimasu.

Oh, you may wonder who is Suga Shikao…eh…you may find out more about him in the wiki link here. I found out that not a lot of people heard of him :/ but if you are an anime fan, you may heard of him. Or if you have watched Death Note 1 (the movie), the movie featured one of his songs, “Manatsu no Yoru no Yume” (Midsummer’s Night Dream). The song was played as Raito was walking in the art gallery with his girlfriend :)

Some caps that I have from the PV and if you download, please let me know what you think of this song/PV ^^.
