    ...by the artist above.

    INFO
    I'm not sure how this will work but please bear with me because this might take a while. I tried to think of a good thread to put in this section because it's not as active as the others, but this is all I came up with. I was going to do a thread where you just list your favourite songs, but then I realised that just listing songs is hella boring, and once people have done that, they don't post again. Even if I asked people to write a comment about each song, we'd probably end up with loads of "its got a good beat, and I can dance to it", which would probably result in a lot of wasted effort.

    THE AIM OF THE GAME
    Basically this thread is very similar to "The member above me" and "Describe the AKB48 member above" threads, but slightly more confusing different. What you have to do is name your favourite song by the artist mentioned in the post above, and then also write the name of one of your own personal favourite songs (by any artist) at the end of your post (just like the "Describe the AKB48 member above" thread).

    RULES AND GUIDELINES
    -If you don't know who the artist above is, don't just go to wiki and randomly choose one of their songs. Take the initiative and go and listen to them. If you still don't like them, don't post, and wait for someone else to post. TIP: Go to Youtube or Veoh > enter '[the name of the artist] pv' into the search box > sort by 'View count' or 'closest match' > watch the videos.
    -The artists and songs don't have to be Japanese. However the more well known they are the better, and I'm assuming most of us listen mainly to J-music.
    -When writing a song by the artist above, you don't have to write the artist's name, but you do have to write both the artist name AND the song name when writing your own favourite.
    -Like the other thread, I don't really want the same artist to appear twice on the same page.
    -This seems harsh but DON'T post any AKB48 songs in this thread.
    -Yes the "wait 5 posts before posting again" rule still applies here. However if no one posts for 24 hours (which might happen in this section), I'm willing to ignore this rule for that moment.

    ^Otsuka Ai - kingyo hanabi. It's such a nice song. I'm kinda partial to her more poppy, upbeat songs, but this one is one of her best for sure. I also like Happy Days, which most people seem to forget about.

    I've only heard a few of their songs, but their latest one is very catchy :) So I'll go with Kirameki hour.

    ^To be honest I had no idea who she was, but when I looked her up, I realised that she sang that song I really liked when I heard it on music station (tabibito). Unfortunately that's the only song she's released recently, so I'll go with Hyaku renka (a song which isn't released yet, but sounds really nice and soothing).

    Hinoi team - King Kong (has anyone seen the original video for this song? My god what were they thinking when they let Hinoi team cover this song. On the plus side, the original is hilarious :lol: Perhaps it could do without the cartoon nudity though lol.

    ^ I was so obsessed with that song for a really long time, lol. I tried to look up the original, but no luck. :cry: But yea, with their suggested lyrics and band name, E-rotic, I was expecting the original video to be a tad bit raunchy. :shock:

    Another song I like from them is "Play with the Numbers" (sounds like something you would say to kindergarteners XD )

    Here's another one of my favorites: Shimokawa Mikuni - Kohaku
