Misa’s Jmusic Survey

Misa of minna iru kai has posted a Jmusic survey, that she wants bloggers to fill out. It’s an updated version of the same survey she had on vox.

Since I’m a pretty new blogger I didn’t take her older version of the survey. So there’s nothing really to compare it with. But this looked pretty fun and I never take surveys, so I thought why not.

1. What was the first Japanese song that you ever listened to?

Duty by Ayumi Hamasaki and Embryo by Dir en grey

2. Did it inspire you to like that group/singer, or did it turn you away?

Not really. I mean I like a couple of songs by Ayumi, but I’m not really that big of an Ayumi fan. I’m more of like a casual fan. As for Diru, I’ve been listening to them ever since.

3. What is the one song that you have been listening to for the longest time?

Embryo-Dir en grey
Jibun Kakumei- Miyavi
Shining Star- Nami Tamaki
True Blue- Zone
Rainy Days Never Stay- The Brilliant Green
Gothic Pink- Tommy Heavenly6
Go Girl ~Koi no Victory~- Morning Musume
Sakura Drop- Utada Hikaru
Zetsu- Gazette

I couldn’t pick just one. XD

4. What group/singer have you liked the longest?

Dir en grey, Nami Tamaki, Miyavi

5. What is the song with the most plays on your itunes/media player?

Janakya Mottainai- Buono
Computer City- Perfume
Kanfuu Fighting- Kanjani8
New Look- Namie Amuro

Again I couldn’t pick just one. XD

6. Is that song your favorite?

My music tastes has changed a lot since I started to listen to Jmusic. In the first few years I was really more about Jrock, and hardly listened to Jpop at all. Now I still listen to a lot of Jrock, but it’s balanced evenly with Jpop now.
Currently I listen to mostly idol music. When back in the day I used to make fun of idol music. I hate to admit it now, but a few years back I did. I used to make fun of Arashi a lot. Arashi compared to Gazette and Dir en grey was just to happy for me. Which makes no sense because I still listened to other happy Jpop. Just not that often.
