I think that the Cheeth has already pilloried me for this particular guilty pleasure, but what can I say, it's right up there with...other things...that aren't coming to mind...right now. Anyway, I am quite a big fan of the J-Pop. I think that you could probably blame my living in Japan during the beginning of the Utada Hikaru (see her music video for Final Distance above) era as part of it. Of course, there's other reasons, from stores playing it to the internet facilitating it through the wonders of getting J-Pop without living in Japan. I know that it's looked down upon by a good part of the population, and I'll give them that. Nevertheless, there's nothing like a little B'z, Glay, Ayumi Hamasaki, or Kuraki Mai to give me a bit of that Japanese music fix.
Kuraki Mai - Never Gonna Give You Up
Ayumi Hamasaki - Endless Sorrow
Glay - Yuuwaku (this particular song from their catalogue is in honor of Ishii kun)
