Hi,minna ! Do you enjoy KARAOKE ? I will recommend “ ENKA (演歌) ” if you are coming to Japan and going to karaoke... And if you want to win ! (*^ーﾟ)b Enka is one of the categories of the Japanese songs. it's Japanese soul songs. I sing J-pop, Rock, Lap, and others... but Enka. Nobody chooses it so much. because the chance to usually listening is few. However, rooms rises very much when someone sings the Enka!!! I want to sing Enka someday!
Today,I introduce one Enka artist. The artist name is AKIMOTO JYUNKO(秋元 順子). She become popular at once by the wonderful Enka song though she debuted in 58 years old. So debuted in 2005... ｶﾞ━━Σ(ﾟДﾟ|||)━━ﾝ!! Oh, She is the same generation as my mom !! majika yo ! sugeeeeee !
I uprord the lyrics, pronunciation, and the translation today. Please practice while seeing the movie and lyrics.
In general, Japanese is shy. Yes, I know. But, I think that it is a fragmentary opinion. The Japanese has exploded the soul, cosmos, universe in the mind silently. (ﾅﾝﾁｬｯﾃ!) Not easy to see from the outside. OK ? Enka expresses such a Japanese character. She sings the passion that extends internally. (ﾀﾌﾞﾝﾈ)
Ohhh I was sick!! I still don't know the reason… was it influenza or food poisoning or just cold…
Ok this group is one of the most being famous group in 2008. Actually as musician, they are nothing, but this producer, Yashushi Nakada, is quite smart, I think. Defiantly he reflected what is going on Japan to his music. Their voices are very artificial and make the voice have no identity. I think its purpose is that his target was Otaku people who love anime, dolls, games, and people who only can feel alive in Internet. So that is why their voices are very artificial By the way, you can feel something similar to the SAKANAKUSYO, cant you? I am not Otaku but I like this song a lot!!! Enjoy!!
p.s. the word "Otaku" is not bad meaning but in a same time not good meaning either.
This is one my favorite song! Nice violin!! Isn't it !? Better than Gakuto!!! :P The singer is Follooop and the song name is 花になれ(hana ni nare) If you like it, ask me, I have mp3 :D Do you want to sing this song? If you want maybe I can find its relic for you. and when you come to japan, i will take you Karaoke and you sing this song!! I hope you like it :D Enjoy!!
