My iTunes is full of music in languages other than my own. You’ll find the likes of French, Italian, Korean, Spanish, and a lot of Japanese. It started with sailormusic.net, which I discovered when I was 14 or 15, before I even had an iPod. I literally burned CDs of Sailor Moon music and listened to them on my discman. Cool, Nicole.
10 years later, I still love the music of Sailor Moon. I’ve said before how much I love Moon Pride from Sailor Moon Crystal, which led me to this, the full version by Momoiro Clover Z.
From there, it was down the rabbit hole with Momoiro Clover Z youtube videos. You guys, I’m obsessed.
This one is a personal favorite. I clicked on it mainly because I noticed Shiorin was dressed as Pikachu, but upon closer examination you see the rest of the girls are pokémon too! There’s Jigglypuff, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Croagunk! This song, which served as the closing theme to Pokémon Best Wishes, is super catchy and you can bet I tried to learn this dance.
The greatest discovery thus far is that Momoiro Clover Z’s two albums, Battle and Romance and Fifth Dimension, are available on iTunes in the US! I’m almost never able to find foreign language music I want readily available on iTunes, so this was quite a nice surprise. I’ve been listening to Battle and Romance all week.
If quirky color-coded J-pop girl groups aren’t your thing, totally don’t bother. But if they are, definitely watch whatever this is.
Have a great weekend, friends!
