More J-Pop singles
I recently went through my notebook that I kept in Japan, and I decided to order some more CD singles of the songs I enjoyed watching on Matt's cable TV. First, I got Boa's new single Make a Secret, which is a cool song (though pretty different from her other stuff). The CD only has one other song on it, plus instrumental versions of both (which is always the case with Japanese CD singles - they should definitely do this in the US!). Next I got the Kumi Koda single Butterfly, which came with the video on DVD - she's definitely all about "male excitement", so this video includes everything from sexy office clothes dances to soapy car wash antics! Next I got O's single Anata to Naraba, which is just a peaceful and pretty song sung by a cute duet. The extra tracks on the CD are kind of interesting, since they include the regular version, an all instrumental version, then a version with only one girl singing her part, and then a version with the other girl (so you can sing harmony with either one, I guess)! There are three different songs, which means 12 tracks! Finally, I had to get Eien no Natsu by Sasuke, because this video was so great that it made me cry (I wish the video was included, but I'm happy just to hear the song again). I love the acoustic guitar and male vocals (which are too high for me), and the extra songs on this CD are awesome, too (sappy, but cool)! If I only had access to Japanese music videos all the time, I would probably order from YesAsia at least once a month!
