懐かしい... well sort of [Sep. 22nd, 2004|07:48 pm]
[Current Music |countdown tv special]


I finally got a chance to view the CD Data special that I rented over the weekend. ^-^ It has everyone's 'favorite' PV's & CD Data Live appearances ..from 93 on. I'm recording it now - and it's very fun & interesting, despite the annoying animated CD data host voices (I'm probably the only person that wants to scream out loud about that).. misshitsu! yay! I got to see (well sadly, too short of a clip) of Yellow monkey!

Laruku has appeared 2 or 3 times, but not til .. 98? ahh sigh... how they get beaten out by SMAP, Goodness knows. I used to rail and rant (OK privately, because too many friends like her) that I hate Ayumi Hamasaki's voice.. well after recalling the horror that is SMAP, maybe I need to cut her some slack XD (or maybe not! I'm a brat)
It's odd though - from 98 on I recognize most everyone~ lol... maybe since that was when my friend Kuniko gave me a videotape of Utagassen/FNS festival - so they had a similar 'recap' on it.

Liv~ Oh my... Luna Sea is included in the top choices.. - I for you - ? Why I for you? lol

Sadly CD tv is like a reader's digest version of everything - but if anyone is very nostalgic,.. let me know if you would like a copy.

I was going to add a ramble complaining about a fuzzy headed person who is using the persona of Shun ( of Duel Jewel band fame) in a twisted and stupid way - but then... =p I don't need to give them any more publicity... Best of luck to you Sophie , Jack , Meela ....

No no! You are right! Ayumi Hamasaki's voice is terrible! Horrid!
And she looks really funny too.

I think you are right~! It's just that they had greater songs in their illustrious past - I wonder why that was chosen... Rosier? Mother? Desire, True Blue.. aahah man there is such an impressive list - I just found I for you to be a weaker song.. ahah oh well

YES! Rosier is my favorite~!!!!!!!!

OK OK I had a like this rather girlysquealy crushy thing on the evil Ryuichi for a while... (he does have a beautifully/classical Kabuki-esque face..lol) but.. his voice quite gives me a headache ...

You know? My big big fear when seeing Ryuichi reveal himself as a the shallow jpop pedophile ( OK OK just being evil & joking about the pedophile thing) ~ it was just a short time before HYDE's solo debut.. I was seriously afraid, seriously afraid! that Hyde would end up the same way. ..

Thank Gawd~! Hyde just sold his soul to (Avril & Curt Kobaine? hahah it could be so much worse)

Yes helayne doesn't know what the hell she is yapping about btw

hai hai^^

>Luna Sea is included in the top choices.. - I for you - ? Why I for you? lol

Maybe "I for you" was the best selling sigle of LUNA SEA?_? I don't like the way Ryu sings the song (as usual) but the lyrics of this song is quite good.... (well... i heard their lyrics are mainly written by whom made the song, so the lyrics (or an idea of lyrics) of "I for you" was provided by Sugi.)

ahh it was my first introduction to Luna Sea - "I for you" on the FNS festival.. ahah and I liked them right away - so I guess I am can't complain so much .. XD

I kept singing "la la la love song" in my head after I saw that special! hahaha
so many silly sappy songs are smartly written so they stick in your brain...

WOW!! 1998 was the first time that I ever saw Laruku (on Kohaku!) and therefore, if I ever watch a video of 1998-2000 I tend to know all the people performing. LOL. Then again, I have never seen the footage that you are talking about. Sounds fun ne. ^_^ But anyawy, Luna Sea... "I for You" was prolly big then because of "Kamisama mou sukoshi dake" drama. As for "La La La Love Song" NOW YOU GOT IT STUCK IN MY HEAD!! LOL ^o^ Reminds me of KimuTaku in "Long Vacation" so I am quite alright... ^_~
