Although many called it a bad song… TIKI BUN, actually.

It’s pointless to listen to Yume 15 if you’re not doing so on headphones.

I think °C’s I miss you might be pretty interesting in a way.

All H!P songs as of late are very carefully crafted. They’re all worth listening to. As far as Juice goes though, I’d recommend Romance no Tochuu and Senobi.

Music is fun.

Maybe Senobi. I didn’t think much of it the first time when I heard it on the PC as I watched the music video, but listen to it on a good pair of headphones or earphones and it’s definitely worth it. (They need to be expensive, high-resolution ones.)

It’s only until you listen to Semi by Berryz Koubou on headphones that you really realize what people mean when they talk about how they went all-out with the arrangement.

Listening to it just once, it has the impression of just being this simple acoustic song played on live instruments. But the arrangement actually has quite an edge to it. There’s something almost electronica-like about it.

Just listen to Mikitty’s Let’s Do Daihakken!
32: 名無し募集中。。。 2014/11/18(火) 10:47:40.86 0.net
Songs like Morning Musume’s Suki da yo!

They went crazy with the panning on this one. It’s a fun one.

S/mileage’s Uchouten LOVE. You get to enjoy Tsunku♂’s voice to the fullest.

Listening to the songs on headphones, it almost feels like the volume on Tsunku’s vocals is higher in the mix than previously.

Everyone always talks about Munasawagi Scarlet, but another song that’s just full of Tsunku vocals is Seventeen’s VOW.
11. 名無しプロジェクト 2014年11月19日 13:41 ID:W.oLjtb10
Of recent songs, maybe Toki Sora. My impression of it really changed after listening to it on headphones and really hearing the beat.

Ai wa Itsumo Kimi no Naka ni.
Awesome low frequency sounds.
H!P songs that just sound good

I went back and listened to Taiyou to Ciscomoon’s Everyday Everywhere on headphones and noticed how good it sounded. Any similar recommendations?

The bass line in Gasshin Shoutan.

Manatsu no Kousen is a song that comes up in threads like this one.

It seems like the funk stuff always sounds good. Sukatto, Gasshin Shoutan, Ongaku Gatas’ songs…

Kimagure Princess. I seem to recall it being a fun listen what with so many different sounds going on.

WHY, the 10th track on the album 3rd-LOVE Paradise-. There’s this fun sound in the opening, like a ship’s foghorn almost? It creates a nice atmosphere. (I don’t know much about musical instruments so I’m not sure what the sound is exactly.)
18: 名無し募集中。。。 2016/04/15(金) 22:50:16.59 0.net
It’s probably a synth mimicking a seagull, no?
Also, I can’t help but be reminded of Marc Panther because of that rapper’s voice. (laughs)

Romance no Tochuu. Female chorus vocals, horns that actually sound good, and just when it almost starts getting boring, you get a refreshing bass/guitar solo finish.

One that became a bit of a hot topic just the other day: Popcorn Love. Kono Shin’s simple but steady arrangement makes it a pleasure to listen to.

Iji Daki is a song that’s able of attracting fans who previously had no interest in idols let alone H!P.
4. 名無しプロジェクト 2016年04月17日 07:20 ID:fqFRlfq80
Those chorus vocals by AKIRA…
3. 名無しプロジェクト 2016年04月16日 23:51 ID:FBjVF4rA0
Yattaruchan. It’s such a hectic, fun song.
5. 名無しプロジェクト 2016年04月17日 15:30 ID:oDvFd34n0
Right now I’m too busy to listen to anything but Tsugitsugi Zokuzoku. I’ve listened to it countless of times and I’m still unable to pick out all the sounds.

Currently listening to all the recommendations you guys gave me. This is so fun!
The dude who plays organ in Kobushi’s
“Chotto Guchoku ni! Chototsu Moushin”
is freaking incredible

It’s a shitty office, but I do like how serious they are about their music.

Actually everything sound so good when you listen it with high resolution / monitor headphone. But my latest best H!P song is Anju’s Desugita (concert ver.)
Well… everything sounds better, but you can’t polish a turd.
With that said, if you think of yourself as a music fan (regardless of what you think about H!P music specifically), you pretty much owe it to yourself to listen on a good pair of headphones, or otherwise just a good sound system. I guess that goes without saying though. But really, treating yourself to a decent pair of headphones is a purchase I don’t think anyone who loves music would regret. And I say this as someone whose most expensive pair is in the measly $100-150 range — I always have had a strange fetish for my Sennheiser HD-280 Pros. (Going on my third pair at the moment.)
A really good pair of headphones will make you rediscover your favourite songs all over again. And they make Tsunku’s backing vocals come out really nicely.
this critically hits my musician’s heart… every song sounds better with a good pair of headphones… I love the H!P funk songs so much so I’d just name all my favorite songs… but to be honest… I came to like tiki bun because I was listening to it on my headphones… now it’s one of my favorite songs… so I’d recommend it ^^
as a bassist myself I really like to listen to those songs that have weird but interesting basslines… like Mr. Moonlight, maji desu ka ska, utakata saturday night, etc… those are perfect with headphones… but that’s just me… there are so many different songs/styles/genres… to be honest… that’s what I love about H!P and about the fans… noone ever has the same favorite songs… every song is loved by someone! and that’s why I read so many comments and opinions…
I think Tsugitsugi Zokuzoku is a fun one to listen to with headphones.
Also, Organ Dude is my new Kobushi oshi.
Drummer dude (Yasuo Sano) has played with Yoko Kanno and Maaya Sakamoto. I think he’s fun to watch. :)
Popcorn Love is one of my favorite H!P b-sides. It’s a good, catchy tune that leaves you with a sense of nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ in general.
I knew “WHY” would be mentioned somewhere in this thread. Tsunku’s crazy.
i usually only listen to my idol music playlsits with good quality headphones unless im in the car but i used to put on repeat the most Morning Musumes Namidacchi and Help me… then Toki Wo Koe Sora for a long time… Now its Kobushi Factorys Survivor, that song just hits so hard through the headphones..
Outside of H!P though, off Babymetal’s new album Metal Resistance, “The One” maybe the best song i’ve hard all year, maybe since Toki Wo Koe was released.. Everything about that song is perfect, from the opening guitar riffs, to the complex yet harmonious melody to Suu-Metals awesome voice in Japanese and English
I actually used to fall asleep with Buono’s Deep Mind on earphones. It’s all out with the drums, but I really like it so I tried to listen to it during my free time (which is also only about for sleeping).
I think I like all the Buono on earphones/headphones. Also, the live perfs, they sound so fun when in maximum volume.
Koi wa Magnet sound just terrific on headphones. Can’t name any other recent H!P songs which would be so eargasmic as it.
Probably C-ute – Faraway and Buono- My alright sky
I rather like the updated version of Renai Hunter through headphones (my good pair broke recently though :'()
Also Shabondama, Doki Doki Love Mail and Inspiration
Most jpop and H!P music has terrible mastering and post production.
After spending lots of money on higher end audio gear, it’s depressing to hear how terrible everything is. High fidelity terribleness.
Also, someone needs to invent headphones that mute out the rest of the track so you only hear the Tsunku vocals.
I would buy those Tsunku voice isolation headphones in a heartbeat.
PS. I think I remember chatting with you sometimes years ago on the H!O IRC channel. Good to hear from you.
