Song of the Week 007 – let go

23 12 2008

Now for Tuesday we are going a bit out of my usual pop region. We’re going to go into some Japanese rap. Well, to be more exact it’s part pop and part rap. And when I think about such songs that would fit into the description, I think of m-flo! Today’s song is “let go” by m-flo loves YOSHIKA.

Song of the Week 005 – Chocolate Disco

The popularity can definitely be attributed to the fact that it was the insert song for the very popular drama, Hana Yori Dango 2. You know those drama songs… they get mad popular. But hey Hikki is big in Japan so it’s not wrong to discriminate on her. It’s certainly not wrong to discriminate on a good song either (unless you just don’t feel it is good to your ears, in which case never mind).
