Fight the Blues[edit]

Just wanted to inquire about the single status of "Fight the Blues", as you are wrong in that no source refers to it as a single. Oricon does (see http://music.oricon.co.jp/php/music/MusicTop.php?music=80312 ). It specifically refers to it as "シングル."SanctuaryX (talk) 00:09, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

That database calls every individual track a single, even Celebrate or Gentle Beast Interlude. What you're looking for is a mention on her official website or a reputable music site like Barks or Natalie that the song was a 'single' (not just 先行配信, 先行リリース or リード曲). --Prosperosity (talk) 12:52, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Sakanaction[edit]

Sempai! Sorry it took so long. The last two weeks were really tiring haha. Anyway, I've completed "Sen to Rei", please check through it and see if there's any error. I'm just a beginner when it comes to analysing music :) Here it is:

Sheet music says tempo is 132bpm.
Major key of E
Common time (the vocals)
Verses start off as C#m-A-..
Chorus is complex, so I didn't write it down lol (it goes like Am-Emaj7-G#m-E-A)
Begins with an instrumental introduction, including guitars, bass, keyboard, drums.. yeah

Would this be enough? If not, please do let me know. I'll get to the remaining two shortly. Ryoga (talk) 05:06, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Sounds good! I'm less than a beginner, so unless someone who knows better complains at me, all of that looks good! Haha --Prosperosity (talk) 04:06, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
Haha, okay sempai. I'll do the next two songs today :) Ryoga (talk) 11:00, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Sorry it took so long. Here are the rest:

Mikazuki Sunset
Major key of D major and minor key of B minor. Common time.
122 bpm (which is fast-paced)
Begins with an instrumental intro featuring a bassline, guitars and keyboards.
Intro's chord progression is Gmaj7-A6-Bm.
Same pattern used in verses. Chorus also the same, except it goes Gmaj7-A6/Fm-Bm
The above pattern is used throughout, which means it's pretty simple.
Ends with an instrumental coda.
Native Dancer
130 bpm, which is fast-paced too
common time
major key of D major, minor key of B minor
opens with instrumental intro with G6-Asus4-Bm7
verses and chorus have the same progression too
ends with instrumental coda

Hope this is enough sempai. You waited so long, please forgive me. Can I ask you for a favor too? I'm planning on writing a story and am planning to name it "The delusions of a widower: Does age really matter?". Can you give me the Japanese equivalent for this lol? With kanji, if you don't mind :) Thanks sempai! Ryoga (talk) 14:23, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

Ooh, thanks.
How about something like this? 男やもめの妄想 年齢は本当に関係ない?
I didn't get it native checked, but it should be accurate-ish! Though I guess what you mean by 'delusion' will affect it a lot (as in vivid imagery or misconception). --Prosperosity (talk) 04:52, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Yep. I love manga, but I have no talent whatsoever when it comes to drawing, so I thought I'll write a story instead. It's a comedy, drama, romance, parody thing. The main character is a widower, who falls in love with a girl 27 years younger than he is. And, all these crazy things he does to get her attention. By delusion, I meant his imagination, thoughts et cetera. I hope it's the right word here. Do you have any other suggestion for the title sempai? Ryoga (talk) 06:32, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Ok, well I suppose mousou works there (it's usually imagery, like an imaginary friend or a daydream). To me the title sounds in Japanese like a self-help book, not so much quirky or manga-y. What sort of title were you wanting to have? --Prosperosity (talk) 11:08, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Haha, maybe I should make it a self-help book :) Just kidding. I wanted it to be something funny, you know, which reflects what the main character's thinking, feeling.. and at the same time, I wanted it to be serious, like it's something to think about. Guess I'm not so creative when it comes to English, I'll stick to writing it in my native language lol. Ryoga (talk) 12:36, 20 June 2015 (UTC)
Oops, I forgot to mention that all the songs have a verse-chorus structure :) Ryoga (talk) 10:31, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
I meant like...depending on how your story turns out, maybe a different title in Japanese might suit it! --Prosperosity (talk) 10:36, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
Hmm, maybe I should go with something simpler? Like, "Love at Forty"? or similar lol? Ryoga (talk) 09:54, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

Namie Amuro[edit]

Sempai, don't you think we need to clean her articles up? I've tried removing blogs and other unreliable sites, but there are lots of statements which use them as a reference. Unless we find a replacement (which is reliable, of course) for them, they must be removed (even users on Jpopcentral are starting to feel that fansites and blogs are too much!) Btw, how are you? I haven't heard from you in a while. I discovered some very good artists this month, like Rimi Natsukawa, Kazumasa Oda, KinKi Kids, KOKIA (through Ayatsuri Sakon), Dragon Ash :) Do you listen to them too? Ryoga (talk) 14:43, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

@Ryoga Godai: What about Mami Kawada? Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 15:32, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Ah, no dude. I do know her, but haven't listened to her works. I do like Akino Arai and Yoko Ishida though. How about you recommend some Kawada songs to me? Since she performs for I've Sound, she must be good. Ryoga (talk) 03:52, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
@Ryoga Godai: Well, most of her stuff is pretty good so it would be a good idea to simply try any of her anime opening or ending themes. Too bad she doesn't seem to be very popular in Japan anymore, and based on my recent trip to Japan it seems her CDs are usually out of stock (not because they sell well but because the inventory is gone). Narutolovehinata5 tccsdnew 09:54, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
@Narutolovehinata5: Hmm, I just checked her article and saw that she performed the ED for Hayate no Gotoku. It sounds pretty good. That's the drawback when you're marketed towards a particular audience, say anime. And most of the time, the events they perform at are also connected to this industry, which does little to improve their career. And audiences interests keep on changing, and Japan, from what I've seen and heard love "moe" or whatever you call it, so they always have someone new to follow. Am I right sempai? Well, atleast her albums are available on iTunes though it's not available in my country :( Ryoga (talk) 11:26, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
