Lemme see yo B-sides!

So I see that everyone is letting everyone else know what their favorite songs of 2010 are, so I decided to do the same.  But this time, i'm starting off with the b-sides, cause there were just some that I thought were fantastic.

Hmm...lets see what I come up with, seeing I never really put any thought into "what my favorite songs of the year" are.  Who knows?  As I write this blog post, I might surprise myself.

6. S/mileage - Smile Bijin. [Ganbarankautemo ee Nende b-side]
(Forgot how good this was until just recently.  I love how it opens, and that it has a good beat to it).

5. Berryz Kobo - Moon Power. [Maji Bomber's b-side]
(Great how everyone has equal share in this song.  Loved it from the beginning).

4. Morning Musume - Nakidasu Kamo Shirenai Yo. [Onna ga Medatte Naze Ikenai b-side]
(Crazy how out of everyone Junjun got chosen for the epic solo.  Gooo Junjun).

3. S/mileage - Chokkoto Love [Bijin Mama b-side]
(I know its a cover of an old song, but I love this version more.  The high pitched voices make it work).

2. Morning Musume - Aisaresugiru Koto wa Nai no Yo [Lullaby Game b-side]
(Wasn't too crazy about the bridges, but the choruses are amazing).

1. C-ute - Kore Ijou Kirawaretakunai No [Dance de Bakoon b-side]
(Epic.  Loved everything about this song. That's it).

So in conclusion, I think that Tsunku had a great run this year concerning b-sides.  Morning Musume are surely not going to be the same once the new kids roll in.  I hope, for everyone's sake though, that they still produce awesome songs.

I guess we'll just have to wait and find out wont we?

P.S - If you play all the songs at the same time, something crazy happens after 1 minute.


  1. THANK YOU! A ranking that makes sense! *looks at Chris*

  2. Thank you!

    I think that Smile Bijin song is the best S/mileage song I've heard; it's not squeaky!?

  3. ^
    YES. That's why it usually takes me a while to get used to s/mileage songs. Too squeaky.

  4. Ah!! You DO NOT want to see my backside unless you want to see a hairy plummers crack! I just like MM's B-side. Rather plain jane & with few lyrics, but catchy while I'm driving.

    Lol, it took me a while to get why you said that ^_^;
