The “Good Things That Came Out of 2007” List

Posted in °C-ute, Chocolove, Hello!Project, Hello!Project Kids, Hitomi Yoshizawa, J-Pop, Junjun, KAT-TUN, Koda Kumi, Linlin, m-flo, Miki Fujimoto, Morning Musume, NEWS, Risa Niigaki, Tsuji Nozomi, YUI, Yuko Nakazawa at 12:19 am by aiwish472

1. Mikan – Morning Musume
Since it came out, Mikan has been one of my favorite Morning Musume songs. It’s catchy, fun, inspiring (you’ll get a chance!), and has a great PV. Everybody sounds great – new members, old members, the ones with strong voices, even the ones who need to work on their singing.

2. Tokaikko Junjou – C-ute

If it weren’t for this song, I would have never gotten into C-ute.

3. Yuko Nakazawa – Danna Sama

YUUKO’S ALIVE!!! I didn’t really care for this single, but it tells me that Yuko’s doing something. And I like it when cool members are doing things. ^^

4. Graduation of Hitomi Yoshizawa, Miki Fujimoto Friday’d

Shokku.

As much as I hate to see them go (especially Yossie), Mikitty and Yossie wouldn’t really fit with Morning Musume’s new style. I couldn’t picture Yossie in a furry chicken outfit for the second time (See: Onna ni Sachi Are PV and compare to The Peace), nor Miki hugging/eating cake/being happy on an album cover like Mikan’s. I think Yocchan is much better off participating in activities like Ongaku Gatas.

As for Miki…she never really seemed to like being in the group, anyways. =P (Maybe she should get her solo career back, she seemed to like that. But that’s another post…)

5. Junjun and Linlin. I love those two. They fit in great with Morning Musume, are very cute, and have so much talent. Forget about expansion – these two alone are great. I can’t wait to see them in 2008, and all the years to come.

6. Risa Niigaki becoming Sub-leader. I think Risa has a lot of potential as leader. She seems to really enjoy her work, and gets along with all the other members. Way to go Gaki. 😀

7. Morning Musume Tanjou 10 Nen Kinentai. This was a wonderful way to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of Morning Musume/Hello!Project. All the members have a special place in the group that marks something big that happened in Hello Project history – Nacchi is the beginning, Kaori is leadership, Maki is the miracle, Risa is a magical gokkie, and Koharu is the not other miracle. 10 Nen Kinentai released some great music, too.

8. Tsuji and her baby! What more do I need to say? I am so happy for Nono.

9. Koda Kumi – Freaky. I like this song a lot. I also heard that Kuu is/was using this song in an anti-bullying campaign. That’s good to hear. ^^

10. NEWS – weeek. (Tokaikko Junjou #2) If it weren’t for this song, I would have never gotten into NEWS. I downloaded their touch album and a couple other singles, but nothing did it for me. Until this. So…now I like NEWS. =D

11. Cartoon KAT-TUN II You – KAT-TUN’s second album. I love how every member [except Jin-kun…=(] got their own solo song. Junnosuke’s, SAMURAI☆LOVE☆ATTACK, is best. ❤

12. YUI – CAN’T BUY MY LOVE album. Another wonderful release from YUI!

13. m-flo – COSMICOLOR. This has been my favorite m-flo album to date. There are some songs that I don’t really listen to that often, but nothing that I hate. The best songs on the album are Love Don’t Cry (loves Crystal Kay), Luvotomy (loves Namie Amuro), Picture Perfect Love (loves MONKEY MAJIK), and She Loves The Cream (loves DOPING PANDA).

14. Chocolove from AKB48. I love the people in this group (especially Akimoto Sayaka) and their songs (especially Ashita wa Ashita no Kimi ga Umareru). This group is sweeter than chocolate!

That’s the best of the best from 2007.

    I’m totally in love with °C-ute. Tokaikko Junjou must be one of my most played tunes nowadays. I always have it on repeat. XD

  2. You are absolutely right about C-ute’s latest single, but I started to take notice after their first couple singles in 2007, and their two concerts in February and April. Tokaikko Junjou was just the next step, and it was a big one.

    Ahaha, I have to agree with 10. That song got me into NEWS, too. And Cartoon II KAT-TUN is one of the, like, 3 Jpop CD’s that I own. :3

    I agree with #4, Fujimoto leaving Morning Musume is good thing for her, also for band. She did not wish to be babysitter for grown girls, and as you say their style is not hers for music either. My opinion: H!P should sell her contract to Avex, allow her to study and work with her idol Namie Amuro and become R&B Queen later!

    ok so why does everyone hates Jin? hope u don’t mind me commenting

  6. aiwish472 said,

    @SakuraDrops: I’m sorry, but I don’t quite understand how your comment relates to the post…I don’t hate Jin at all. He’s my second -favorite member, and I think he seems pretty popular…=)

  7. Sakura Drops said,

    sry I guess my comment came out as if I was a ‘die hard fan of Jin’ sorry… I misread cause when you said ‘except Jin-Kun’ I thought that u hated him… just because around me people seem to really hate Jin. sorry my bad.

  8. aiwish472 said,

    Ah, no, I like him. He was just away, and therefore, wasn’t able to be on the album. 😉
    No problem at all.
