I was gonna write something else today. But all the drafts that I have made got erased.. so maybe for another time.

So in the last posting, I was talking about my high school classmate who introduced me into the North American Music. My music taste has totally changed during my high school life. I was more into J-pop scene. But a band, called GO!GO!7188 totally changed it. They suddenly appeared in the Japanese indie music scene with a song called "jet ninjin" (which means Jet Carrot lol) A 3 piece band, Yuu, akko, and turky. With very unique lyrics and songs,they have been very popular not only in Japan, but also in the North America as well. In fact, 2 years ago, they came to NY and Chicago. I had a chance to see them in NY! it was such a amazing show and I got a chance to talk with Yuu and Akko!! OMG, you can tell how excited I was!!!

I will post 2 of my favorite songs.

The first song is called Tokyo. I love this song because the bass line is amazing. and it's just so different!

The second song is called "Ukibune" This song made them more popular. I decided to post not their original music PV, but their live. I thought they are awesome in shows.

well if you requested, I could translate both songs. let me know what you think about the band!!


  1. my friend found the Music PV of Ukibune with English sub. check it out


  2. Another very nice group, Kanae. Loved "Tokyo" though over the 2nd. I almost thought I was in the audience myself. I felt the same way listening to this song as I do when I attend jazz shows. They really do emphasize the music over the lyrics to great effect. Very, very nice. Thanks for the post.

  3. Glad that you like it Jason! they are my favorite by far! :)
