Pizzicato Five all the time


25 déc. 2005, 13h00m

Hum.... Just check my weekly charts. In the last weeks I am listening mostly to Pizzicato Five (and from time to time to other so called Shibuya-Kei bands....)

4 our 5 years ago Pizzicato Five had great success with their Made in USA. Here in Spain Happy Sad even became the soundtrack of one of the most popular TV commercials. I got fascinated by their music... and I even planned to buy their records... but for some reason I do not remember I did not, and with time I give up.

But I did not forgot on their songs. And recently I had the chance to grab a Japanese record of them: Singles... woah! It was like rediscovering a known world. This record summarizes 10 years of their career in Japan. Songs and sound are not so different from the ones I discovered with Made in USA... but they are sung in Japanese, what makes quite a difference. Also it is amazing to discover for how many years the band has been developing their sound... They are much more than just a hype. I plan to continue to investigate in all their legacy.

Favourite songs? 東京の合唱〜午後のカフェで, ダーリン・オブ・ザ・ディスコティック, 恋のルール・新しいルール (Whatever those names mean...). And the obvious Baby Love Child...

    Thanks for both the transliteration (it is cool now to know how should I aproximately refer to the tracks I liked besides 7th track). And thank for the record suggestion. So far I am still enjoying the Single collection, and I will plan to go deeper in the future on other records. Still, I believe that probably Pizzicato Five are probably better as great single writer... But I will tell after I spend some more time to check their music. The only thing is that I plan to focus more on their Japanese career, therefore it will take some time to get a good sample.
