Katori Shingo- Oha Rock

13 10 2008

Shingo Katori is one of the members of SMAP, one of the first music groups of Johnny’s. Shingo-san is well known for his parodies and personifications… (he is one of the best of the group). I saw the video of “Oha Rock” about 6 years ago and because at that moment the only thing I knew about japanesse music were the groups Gackt, L’arc~en~Ciel, Dir en Grey and Hikaru Utada I thought to myself that japanesse people where a bit nuts… and today at 4 in the morning I got an E-mail from Nana-chan with a link to this parody, and now that I know who the nuts guy is I have mixed feelings… I don’t know if I have to laugh or cry while watching this… (Shingo is my favorite singer from SMAP… well he is my favorite in everything) At the same time I saw this for the first time I saw the video of “Yatta” which I’ve seen again today and I’m glad to see that there are no Idols or actor/singer I admire between the components of the group, so that’s a relief, XDD!!

I’m truly grateful to Nana-Chan for showing me this video again and to the Blog she rediscovered the clip in the other day. I had a great time watching it, I had a great time seeing how Shingo danced and I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the rest of SMAP on the last part of the clip (Goro is soo Kawaiiii!!!!).

I hope you enjoy the video as much as I have, >_<!!!

here I go again with music. I’m spending a lot of time in buses lately – after a year driving my car around madrid going back to public transport is slightly disconcerting. since it can easily take me 40min to get home when the traffic is very roman, I have been trying different ways to pass the time. spacing out is no good, you always end up thinking about what you shouldn’t – danger here -, reading is… uncomfortable, what with all the bumping along the cobblestone streets and the bus-driver’s crazy roman driving. writing is, of course, out of the question due to the aforementioned detail. which means I mostly listen to music, it’s easier.



this is not a new group to me, but it had been some time since I last listened to their songs. it never fails to amaze me how different an artist can seem to you depending on the circumstances, depending on the time. I appreciate a new side of this group now, paying closer attention to the lyrics, all like short stories on their own.





more “misuchiru”, this time from different albums again. “tabidachi no uta” is more recent, though previous to “GIFT” (which I already posted some time ago). the other two belong to the album [DISCOVERY] that I bought for 500 yen in a [bookOFF] in 渋谷. funny how they spelled “nishi he higashi he” in katakana. hum…

.::BE FREE::.


one of these days I will simply upload the whole album, because I just love all the songs. until then I leave these two, which range among my favourites.



.::cotton wool::.


every time I listen to [LaMb] my friend marta comes to mind. she introduced me to this group one memorable afternoon during a workshop session that lasted 4 days in a row – this involved all four of us buried alive in my room working to get our architecture projects ready, sleeping in turns and going a little crazy. that time she played “gorecki”. now I can’t detach one from the other: marta is lamb and lamb is marta. however, enjoy the songs; according to my friend it’s perfect ‘music for fucking’.

(^complete album download^)

absolutely wonderful. this I owe to akiko-chan, who’s always discovering new treasures! she has a previous album, but I haven’t listened to it yet. when I get around it I’ll start uploading. :)

Arashi – Truth [MS 15-08-08]

Ok I wasn’t very sure about this song’s live performance because of the mixed melodies in some parts of the song… but Actually “my boys” can do whatever they try, >.<!!!

This is a live performance for Music Station (A very popular Tv program in Japan) and YES!! they are singing Live! I’m glad everything with Ohno-kun went well (Or so I asume because he is attending tv show’s and everything, >.< Ureshio!!!! Omedeto Ohno-Kun!!!) Talking about Ohno… check out in the video (nearly at the end) when Ohno sing’s alone that his tie hits him in the face T_T But he is so natural about it XDD!

It’s been a while since I did a post on Nana’s blog, and actually this post was going to be in my own blog but I don’t know why I started writing in english so I said to myself WTF lets do it in Nana’s blog, XDD!

I know lately I’ve been talking about Oh-Chan but don’t worry I’m still a Jun Baited fan and that wont change for anything (not even Hiro looking something alike MY Jun and never having that girlish look on him, promise!!) It’s just that only recently I’ve found the sweet and lovely side of Oh-Chan…

That’s all for now!! I leave you with the live performance of Truth by Arashi!!
