Song: Heartplace (DJ Remo-con Remix)
Album: Ayu-Mi-X 5
Artist: Ayumi Hamasaki
Genre: Pop
Type: Techno/Dance
Language: Japanese
Rating: A

I really wanted to put up a remix of an Ayumi song, so i went through all the remix albums i had for one. I had totally forgotten that i had Ayu-Mi-X 5 on my computer, so i thought i'd take it from there. I wanted to buy the cd a while ago, but it got really bad reviews on yesasia, so i never did. But i got it from somewhere a while ago and never listened to it, but i did today. And the reviewers were right, none of the remixes were very good, except for this one.

I really really love this remix of "Heartplace". The music just sounds so cool! The beat and everything. With a lot of the remixes off "Ayu-Mi-X 5", the music didn't go very well with the way the lyrics were sung, but with this one, they sounded great together!! I highly reccoment this one to you all!! ^_^

Song: My Way
Album: My Way
Artist: Hins
Genre: Pop
Type: Ballad
Language: Chinese
Rating: A

I found out about Hins about a month ago when i downloaded this song from some website. Since i don't listen to much Chinese music, I'm always interested in finding new chinese artists. And let me tell you, i am really glad that i downlaoded this song!

I Really love the music in this song. And i Love the way his voice sounds. He has a very very nice voice and i could listen to him sing all day long! This song is just pretty and mellow. He uses some english in it, and it sounds prefect! You can understand hime very well! So yeah, i'd DL this song if i were you! ^^

Song: Sarah
Album: 300 lésions
Artist: Kyo
Genre: Pop/Rock
Type: I'd not really sure...
Language: French
Rating: A

Ok, a while back i put up one of there songs, "Dernière danse" which i loved at the time and i still love it now!! I totally forgot about Kyo until this month. This mainly due to the fact that in y french class, there is this guy who's from france and he helps my teacher teach us french (oh god, he's so cute!) I aked him if had herd of them, and he had. He also said tat he'd been to one of their concerts.

But yeah, I really really like this song. I got like, 4 of their songs today and i chose this one because i think it was the best. Its not as good as "Dernière danse", but it is still really good! What i really like about it is that it sounds kind of dark and ti think it makes it special. Its just good and if you DL it, you'll know what i mean hahahaha

Song: 蜘蛛 (Kumo - Spider)
Album: 蜘蛛 single
Artist: Lover Sound Track
Genre: Pop/Rock
Type: again, i'm not really sure
Language: Japanese
Rating: A-

I know ablsolutly nothing about Lover Sound Track. Nothing at all! All i know is that this is the song that Ayumi Hamasaki got the music for her song "Memorial Address". I thought i'd put it up incase no one had ever herd the original version before. Its a really good song, but i prefer the Ayu version myself. But i reccomend that you all downlaod this one too- its good!

Haha, that was crappy XDD

Song: melancholic
Album: melancholic single
Artist: Plastic Tree
Genre: Rock
Type: Uhh... Rock
Language: Japanese
Rating: A

I'm not really into the whole J-rock scene, but i really like this song. One of my best friends absolutly loves this band. The only J-rock group that i really really like is Janne Da Ark. But I love this song a lot, so i thought i'd put it up! I really like the lead vocals and i think they go very well with the music. Wow, thats so repetitive! I think i've said that in all of the descriptions/reviews... I guess that a really big thing for me!

Enjoy this weekends music!
And please remember to comment!

Time:11:08 am.
Mood: pissed off.
Ok, SERIOUSLY GUYS!
Its not really that hard to click on the comment button, and then list the songs your going to take before you take them!!!
It takes, maybe, an extra min!

JUST FREAKING COMMENT!

Its seriously getting on my nerves!
I know at least 5 people have downloaded and not commented!
IF YOU DON"T COMMENT I'LL KNOW YOU DIDN'T!
All i have to do is click on the download link, and I can see the number of tiems a song was downloaded.
Then i can look at how many people commented and see that MOST PEOPLE AREN'T COMMENTING!

Just, please please please comment!
If you don't comment, I'm not going to know what you guys like to hear, or even if anyobe is comming here.
I can check to see if people are downlaoding, but it would make my life and this so much easier if you all would comment before you or even after you downloaded somthing.

I promise that i'll update this place every weekend unless i'm too busy.

Just please comment!
please please please!

Song: Ballerina
Album: Into the Stars (single)
Artist: Olivia
Genre: Pop/rock
Type: Ballad
Language: Japanese/English
Rating: A+

I never listened to this song until this week, and am I glad i did! I think that this is now my favorite Olivia song. The music is so pretty, and her voice flows so well with it. I was really into Olivia over the summer, but my intrest has been winding down as of late. But after hearing this song, my love for her was renewed!! So i highly recomend that you all download this song!! SO GOOD!!

Song: Go Or Go Ahead
Album: WANT One
Artist: Rufus Wainwright
Genre: Alternative
Type: Ballad i guess
Language: English
Rating: A+++

I LOVE Rufus Wainwright so much!! He is anmazing singer/songwriter! He writes all of his own lyrics and music and plays almost all the guitar and piano in his songs. His lyrics are so good and clever!

This song comes off the album "WANT One", which is my favorite album of his. I don't really think there is a genre that he can fit into, his music doesn't fit into any genre that i can think of. This song is just... Amazing. The music is just so good, and voice sounds so amazing with the music. I swear i could listen to this song over and over and over and never tire from it!

Song: 蝶ノ森
Album: Meme
Artist: Rurutia
Genre: Pop
Type: Dance-ish
Language: Japanese
Rating: A

I've just recently gotten into Rurutia. I downlaoded one of her songs from somewear and really liked her style. This song "蝶ノ森" which roughly means "Butterfly Forest" is one of the best songs off this album. My other favorite song on it is "tone" and i couldn't deside which one to put up! But I chose "蝶ノ森" because the music is just so cool. It seems very techno infused, and is just amazing!

Song: 忽忘草

Ha, i'm starting to feel lazy abotu describing these songs...

I really like this song. I love Kou's voice, its so nice, especially in this song. "忽忘草" which roughly means "Suddenlt forgets the Grass", is one of my favorite songs of Kou's. I couldn't deside what song of her's to put up, buti chose this one. The music is really nice and her voice sounds great!

Song: Orange no Yuhi
Album: Z
Artist: Aone
Genre: Pop
Type: Ballad
Language: Japanese
Rating: A

I've really coem to love Zone. I've always liked the song "Sotsugyo", but i never heard any of their other songs. But a abotu a week ago, some put up all their albums, so i got them, and i love them!!

I really like "Orange no Yuhi". Its so different from their usual happy bouncy songs. But not all of their music is like (which was i thought). All of their ballads are really good, but this one is my favorite! I highly recomend it to you all!!

I hope you all enjoy these songs!!
But if i don't get any comments, but i find people are downloading, i'm going to close this LJ.

Time:4:41 pm.
Mood: chipper.
Woo Hoo!!
I'm so happy to be updating again!!

Ok, so first things first!
I'm making some changes to the rules:
Instead of using YouSendIt, I am going to use Megaupload.
Even though it is a pain to have to wait, like, 45 seconds, but the downloads will stay up a lot longer that 7 days. So if i get lazy and don't upload one weekend, the downloads will still be available ^_^

Lets see what else...

Its going to just be me uploading music now, although its been that way for a while now.
And I'm really hoping that i can keep up with this XDD
I feel really bad when i don't XDD

I still would like you guys to comment when you download somehting.
It helps me to know if this place is active and when you guys like ^_^

Make sure to read over the Rules in the info before you download ^_^

Ok, now that all of that is over, time for teh music!!

Song: 슬픈영화 (Rocky Mix)
Artist: Loveholic
Album: [Re:All] F.L.O.R.I.S.T
Genre: Pop
Type Ballad
Language: Korean
Rating: A+

Loveholic is one of my favorite Korean bands/groups. One of my favorite songs by them is called "Sky". Its such a sad song, and the video makes me cry! I'll upload them both sometimes if you guys have never seen it.

This remix of "슬픈영화" comes off the re-release of their first album "Florist" which is called "[Re:All] F.L.O.R.I.S.T". Theis re-release comes with the original cd and an extra disc with remixes of some songs on it, and this song was on it. This is an amazing song. The lead vocalists voice goes so well with the pwerful yet melancholy music. I highly recomend this song if you like ballads- 'tis very good ^_^

Genre: Techno
Type Haha, i don't even know XDD HAPPY!!
Language: Japanese
Rating: A

Ok, I have liked capsule for a while now, but yesterday was the first time i was ever able to hear one of their albums. And i have to say that it was pretty awesome! Almost all the songs are these very optimistic funky techno songs. And this one is nothing short of that! "twinkle twinkle poppp!" is such a cute and happy song XDD I love it XDD

Song: Hot Stuff featuring KM_MARKIT
Artist: Koda Kumi
Album: secret
Genre: Pop
Type: Skanky Dance music!!
Language: Japanese
Rating: A+

I used to seriously hate Koda Kumi. I had pretty shallow reasons for it too. I didn't like her because she was skanky (and yet i liked britney spears... hm...) and because my friends didn't like her. Buti don't really care anymore! I love her! haha, i love her skanky style- it fits her and i can't really picture her any other way.

"Hot Stuff" is sure to set your skanky dancing needs!! I know sometimes i like to dance a little skanky when i'm home alone, and this is the perfect song to it to!! But really though, its a very catchy song. Probably my favorite Koda song besides one of her newer songs "Butterfly". I highly suggest that you download this one- its not to be missed!

Song: Change the World
Artist: CHEMISTRY
Album: Wings of Words single
Genre: Pop
Type Ballad
Language: English
Rating: A

Ha, it seems like i've said this in all of the descriptions! But i love CHEMISTRY!! They are one, if not my favorite, Japanese duo! And this song is simply amazing! Its a cover, but i can't remember who sang it originally... But i think this version is better ^_^ This is another song that i highly suggest that you download!! Its soooooo good ^______^

Ok, thats it for this weekend.
I know i usually put up 5, but i have a friend over right now, and i do't want to totally neglect her XDD
She is the one who has that MP3 Rotation LJ i mentioned last week!
Here's another link to it, and You should all go there and put this banner in your userinfo!
But if you do, i'd like it if you would upload the picture by your own means, unless you really can't.
Here it is!:


Ok, see you all next weekend!

Album: MY STORY Classical
Genre: Pop
Type: Orchestra
Language: Japanese
Rating: A+

Ahh... I love Ayumi XDD. This is the Classical version of Ayu's song "HONEY". O think that it is my favorite song off of "MY STORY Classical". All of the tracks are wonderful, so i highly reccamend you cheack it out!

The orchestral music fits the song so well. It makes it feel light and airy. Ayu;s voice sounds so cut in it ^___^ i think thats also another reason why i like it so much! This is definatly a must download!

Song: 태양을 피하는 방법 (Gtr. Remix)(How to escape the sun)
Artist: Bi (Rain)
Album: Rain 2;
Genre: Pop
Type: Ballad
Language: Korean
Rating: A+

Debuting in 2003, Bi was (and is) a huge success! He is one ok Korea's hotest and most popular Artists. Bi expanded by making a debut in Japan. He re-realased his 3rd album "Its Raining" in Japan that had extra songs he sang in Japanese! He was ver well recived there, so i would imagin they will hear more from him in Japan.

"태양을 피하는 방법 (Gtr. Remix)" or "How To Escape the sun" comes off of Bi's second album "Rain 2;". This is my favorite Bi song ever! It is so filled with eomtion and the music is great! This is the remixed version of the song. Both versions appear on the album, but i think this ver is a lot better! Ha, when it comes up on my iPod, i usually skip it because it makes me cry! Thats how good it is! (haha, i'm not sappy at all! XD)

Artist: Hitomi Shimatani
Album: Crossover
Genre: Pop
Type: Dance
Language: Japanese
Rating: A+

Since i have just gotten into Hitomi Shimatani, i don't really know much about her. I found out about her when i randomely downlaoded one of her music videos. it was called "itsuno hi nika", and i just had to hear more of her music. So, i downloaded her album "Crossover" and I've fallen in love!

"Z!Z!Z! -Zip!Zap!Zipangu!" comes off of Hitomi Shimatani's 5th album "Crossover". It can also be found on her 17th single "ANGELUS -アンジェラス-/Z!Z!Z! -Zip!Zap!Zipangu!-". This song is just amazimg. It really is. It starts off sounding very orchestral then it turns into an awsome dance song!! Her voice is so amazing and very strong! I just love this song to peices! If you love to dance or just bob back and forthe and side to side, you'll love this song!!

Song: Fed Up
Artist: Mika Nakashima
Album: MUSIC
Genre: Pop
Type: Rock-ish
Language: Japanese
Rating: A+

Mika Nakashima, who debuted in 2001 with her single "STARS", as a very unique style of music. She ahs a more Jazzy type style, so this song suprised me! "Fed Up" comes off of Mika's new album "MUSIC" which was released in March of this year. "Fed Up" is so different from her usual. Its more rock than Jazz. Its so wonderful... It sounds very ochestral and then when it gets to the chorus and bridge... BAM! ROCK! Its totally awsome! You all shoud DL it!

Song: Gaia
Artist: Janne Da Arc
Album: Gaia (Single)
Genre: Rock
Type: Rock
Language: Japanese
Rating: A-

Ok, now, I know NOTHING about Janne Da Arc. I just know i love this song! Its really really good. When i first listened to it, i thought there were no vocals, and usually thatruns me off. But there was something about the music that made me keep listeing. Then 1 min and 45 sec into it, the words came. The lead singers voice is so nice... I could listen to him sing all day! The way he sings the song is just amazing.

Ok, now here is somthing special!
I'm presenting you with the CHEMISTRY single "mirage in blue/いとしい人 (Itoshii Hito)"!!

mirage in blue
いとしい人 (Itoshii Hito)
meaning of tears (live ver.)
mirage in blue [Instrumental]
いとしい人 [Instrumental]

This is my favorite CHEMISTRY single ever! The songs are so good! "mirage in blue" has a definate summer feel. Its a very fun song! "いとしい人" or "Itoshii Hito" is my favorite song on the single. In fact, its currently my alarm clock! Its such a good song... I can't find the words to describe it. My favorite part of the song is at the end when they harmonize... Oh God, it sounds so so so good! I love CHEMISTRY! "meaning of tears (live ver.)" is also ver good. CHEMISTRY sounds amazing live. This is just a sample of how awsome they saound. I think overall, they're Awsome!!! SUGOI NE!?!

Well, i hope you enjoy these songs!

Jimmy’s Picks

First of all, I would like to apologize for not being able to post anything the last update. My life was very hectic and I didn’t get time. Second, these reviews may not be my most in depth, because my computer ate my original reviews and I wrote these up rather quickly.
Moving on, I decided to go with an English theme this time. All of the songs are in English in this update. They are some of my favorite, hence the high ratings. Just don’t want everyone thinking I’m easy.

Song: : Simple and Clean Live
Artist: Hikaru Utada
Album: COLORS Single, Kingdom Hearts OST
Genre: Pop-rock
Type: Acoustic
Language: English
Rating: A
Simple and Clean is the English version of Utada Hikaru’s song Hikari. It is also the theme song for the video game Kingdom Hearts. Chances are, if you’re visiting the website you know who Hikki is, so I’m not going to write a bio about her.
This is the live version of Simple of Clean from the UH Live Streaming thingy that Utada did. It has a slightly different arrangement from the version on the CD, and I like this one a lot more. There is some really nice acoustic guitar with really great piano thrown in. All the instruments as well as Hikaru’s voice fit together very well in this song. The vocal performance is really strong.

Song: : Such Great Heights
Artist: The Postal Service
Album: Give Up
Genre: Electronica
Type: Upbeat, techno-pop
Language: English
Rating: A-

The Postal Service is made up of Jimmy Tamborello and Ben Gibbard. Jimmy does all the electronic stuff, sending all of the music over to Ben, who lives on the other side of the country. Ben then writes lyrics and melodies and records vocals to go along with the lyrics.
This is my favorite Postal Service song. It’s definitely a very radio friendly song, with a slight pop flavor to go along with the electronica. It has very funky lyrics, but a really cool melody and great soothing, laid back vocals. It’s upbeat, but also very relaxing with a dreamy quality too it. I love the intro and all of the music in this song is just really cool.

Song: Mad World
Artist: Gary Jules
Album: Trading Snake Oil for Wolftickets, Donnie Darko OST
Genre: I really have no idea…O.o;;
Type: Balladish
Language: English
Rating: A-

Mad World is a song by Gary Jules, although it was originally a cover by someone else I believe, although I’m not sure who. This version is apparently much better. Anyway, this song is also from the movie Donnie Darko and plays towards the end of the movie.
This is a very touching song. It’s very emotional and very sad. I really like the vocals in it, as well as the lyrics. The music is a tad bit on the generic side, but the rest of it makes up for it. This song is made even sadder by the scene that it plays in during Donnie Darko… This is a very good ballad, one that is not boring at all.



Alex’s Pics!!!


Song: Dernière danse
Artist: Kyo
Album: Le chemin
Genre: Rock
Type: err rock?
Language: French
Rating: A-

Ok, lets see… Kyo is a French rock band. The lead singer is Ben and the names f the rest of the people in the band are Fab, Niko, and Flo. And that’s about all I know about them.

This is the first and only Kyo song that I have herd, but from it, I get the feeling I will like them lots so I need to get some more songs. “Dernière danse”, which means “Last Dance”, comes off of their second album “Le Chemin” which means “The Way” haha! I guess my French calss pays off! is kind of a mellow rock song. Ben’s vocals are really good. I love the way the French sounds…


Song: 桃ノ花ビラ(Momo no Hanabira)
Artist: Otsuka Ai
Album: Love Punch
Genre: pop
Type: Up beat Ballad
Language: Japanese
Rating: A

“Momo no Hanabira” comes off of Otsuka Ai’s debute album, “Love Punch”, which I own and love to pieces. “Momo no Hanabira” is a sort of up beat ballad-ish song… Its very cute. Hmm… what else is there to say?


Song: 朧月夜〜祈り (Oborozukiyo – Inori) (Acoustic mix)
Artist: Mika Nakashima
Album: 朧月夜〜祈りMini Album
Genre: Pop
Type: acoustic/ballad
Language: Japanese
Rating: A+

“Oborozukiyo – Inori” comes off of Mika’s latest Mini album with the same title. Unfortunately, even though it just cam out on the 15th of this month, its already out of print ;_; This makes me sad because I wanted to buy it… Oh well…

The version of “Oborozukiyo – Inori” that I decided to put up is the acoustic mix. There isn’t really a reason, the original one is really good as well. It’s a very beautiful song. I think what I like most about it is the violins. They are more prominent in this version than in the original.


~BONUS!!!!~
yay!!!

Ok, well a while ago, last week I think, I said that I would put up the full version of Ayu’s “CAROLS” and I didn’t… but I am now!!


Song: CAROLS
Artist: Ayumi Hamasaki
Album: CAROLS single
Genre: Pop
Type: Ballad
Language: Japanese
Rating: A+

Wee!! Ayu’s new song!! I love it a lot!

“CAROLS” comes off of Ayumi’s single “CAROLS.” This song reminds me a lot of Ayu’s older music. The music is simple and beautiful. Her voice sounds great, maybe a little hi pitched, but hey, its Ayu! “CAROLS” has a very large Christmas vibe to it. Can’t wait for the single to come out!

Here we go!!

Alex’s Picks!

This week, I have kind of a theme going on!
I am calling it “Around Eastern Asia in 13 minutes and 8 seconds!!”
Woot!

The first stop in our journey around Eastern Asia is Japan!


Song: ブランコ (Buranko)
Artist: Do As Infinity
Album: Gates of Heaven
Genre: Pop
Type: kind of mid-tempo
Language: Japanese
Rating: A

Do As Infinfity, who is fronted by Tomiko Van and Ryo Owatari. Another member, creator of the band in fact, Dai Nagao is more on the background. DAI, as they are called for short, has been together since 1999 making this they’re 5th year together.

“Buranko” comes off DAI’s 7th album “Gates of Heaven.” “Buranko” is one of my favorite DAI songs, my other favorite being “Yesterday and Today.” “Buanko” is sort os a slow song, but slow enough to be categorized as a balad. So its mid-tempo. Hahaha, great explanation I’m sure XD

Next, we will stop in China! Woot!


Song: Ask
Artist: Kelly Chen
Album: Ask Kelly
Genre: Pop
Type: err… kind of rock/dance-ish
Language: Chinese
Rating: A-

Kelly Chen… well, to be totally honest, I had never herd anything by Kelly until today. I had my idea of this theme and needed to find some c-pop and I remember hearing about her, so I looked her up. I downloaded a few songs and “Ask” was the one I liked the best.

“Ask”, which comes off Kelly Chen’s album “Ask Kelly,” has sort of rock feel to it. But it also has an element of dance to it. I really love thins song. Its so, so, so good!

Our last stop in out journey around Eastern Asia is Korea!


Song: Hate U
Artist: Lee Soo Young
Album: This Time
Genre: Pop
Type: Dance-ish
Language: Korean
Rating: A

“Hate U” comes off of Lee Soo Young’s 5th album “This Time.” “Hate U” was the first Lee Soo Young song I herd that wasn’t a ballad type song. It seems like the type of song that would have cool dancing to go along with it. Yup yup yup ^_^

Well, I hope that you enjoyed this tour around Eastern Asia in 13 minutes and 8 seconds!! Woot!!

Don’t forget to comment after/before downloading!
