Babymetal – Give Me Chocolate

BABYMETAL is a Japanese girls metal vocal and dance group, consist of Suzuka Nakamoto (lead vocal), Moa Kikuchi, and Yui Mizuno. They are also known as Su-Metal, MoaMetal, and YuiMetal.

Their style of music is a mix of J-Pop idol and heavy metal. Su-Metal is 16 year old this year and the other two are 14 year old, where Suzuka Nakamoto as “graduated” from the female idol group Sakura Gakuin.

The opening for this song is heavy metal as hell. But as the lyrics kick in, J-Pop idol stuff came in. I’m totally hooked onto this sing! And not to mention the girls are kinda cute, in a none-pedo way.

Here’s BABYMETAL’s Give Me Chocolate music video and lyrics.

Shiina Ringo – Gibusu

Shiina Ringo, born Shiina Yumiko, a familiar to most Japanese-influenced people and might be a stranger to those who doesn’t really follow Japanese culture..

Not to say that I’m an avid follower of Japanese culture but I see myself as a person who knows numerous Japanese artistes from my interest of listening to anime songs..

Even I haven’t heard of Shiina Ringo until recently heard a friend sang a song of hers in Redbox and I was mesmerized..

At some extent, Shiina Ringo is considered as a cult rather than a true iconic singer such as Utada Hikaru or Ayumi Hamasaki..

Shiina Ringo‘s popularity is no less than the both said-to-be queens of pop in J-Pop, just that Shiina chose not to be in the mainstream, hence the lacked of publicity..

She’s a solo musician, singer-songwriter, and her songs have her own style..She’s also a member of Tokyo Jihen..

Most of her songs contained complex lyrics and she also used varied of instruments with each album..

No doubt she’s a “cult” in Japan and her love towards music would never stop her from producing more and more art piece that would make you go WHOA!

I bet this song, “Gibusu” (or “Gibs” in English) is a familiar piece to those who’ve heard of Shiina Ringo and is also one of Shiina’s favourites..

“Gibusu” is taken “Shoso Strip” album, Shiina’s 2nd album, released in March 2000..

If you have some free time to spare, do head over to Shiina Ringo’s Wiki Page and have some good read..I think it’s kinda rare to have a Japanese artiste to have such long entry in Wiki..

So here’s a live video of Shiina Ringo performing “Gibusu” and “Gibusu” song lyrics..
