It has to be said that when you listen to Uchouten when you’re tired, those “wahoos!” are really irritating. (laughs) When you’re feeling good though, they make you fired-up.

His vocals in Uchouten LOVE are a bit too much. Songs like Loving you Too much have just the right balance. He’s overdoing it in Uchouten LOVE.

If those male vocals sound kind of throaty and like a bit “transparent” — if that’s how you’d describe it — then that’s not him. There are two other males that regularly do chorus vocals aside from Tsunku.
48: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/04/21(日) 11:16:44.01 0
Yeah, this was a person with a throaty voice. So that wasn’t Tsunku? Up until now I’d always been told it was Tsunku and I was just thinking to myself how that can’t possibly be true. So this is actually really helpful to hear. Thanks. I’m going to listen to all the songs linked in this thread and become able to tell Tsunku’s voice apart from the rest.

I still remember laughing when Taishisu performed Gatamekira on Music Station and Terada made a special appearance just to do those “DARADDAARARA” bits live. I think that may be the only live appearance Tsunku has done with other H!P members where he actually sang.

I’ll be honest. Wanting to hear Tsunku’s annoying backing vocals is the whole reason I listen to H!P.
Henkka: Why the hell is Tsunku so damn lovable? I don’t get it. I feel like… Do you guys remember that great Minnie Riperton song? Lovin’ You? That’s how I feel. “Lovin’ you is easy cause you’re beautiful.” I want to accompany myself on the guitar as I sing that song to Tsunku. Especially because those lyrics are immediately followed by “makin’ love with you is all I wanna do.”

“And everything that I do is out of loving you…”
It would be very artificial, but having recorded hundreds… thousands… of songs, I bet arrangers could make heavy use of his samples for decades if they really wanted to.
The thing that really gets me about Nanchuu koi wo yatteruu YOU KNOW? isn’t Tsunku’s backing vocals but the fact that the solo is literally just falsetto “haaaaaa~”s. It’s gloriously absurd.
63 isn’t wrong. Tsunku version of Osaka Koi No Uta is fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iwlhTcIxgA
Though I also really like the MM version, so I’m glad it was released this way.
1) I loved the segue between the two posts.
2) I loved the animation on that version of Resonant Blue. Anyone that didn’t watch the whole thing is missing out.
3) I really want to hear Henkka hit the high notes on that Minnie Riperton song.
I love this version of Resonant Blue! it just feels like this is how the song is meant to be…
When you’re a next-level Terada wota, you can hear in your head how he would sing any song
Uchouten Love isn’t that bad if you’re familiar with the genre. The wahoos are exactly the sort of “wahoos!” you’d hear in Japanese Eurobeat and parapara songs in the late ’90s and early 00s, I thought Tsunku pulled off that sound off flawlessly without ripping it off.
“46: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/04/21(日) 11:15:23.76 O
They need to release group-specific Tsunku demo vocal anthologies.”
I know similar talk about releasing Tsunku demo albums has come up before, but I really like this one. Something like the Berryz Koubou Completion Box was largely duplicate material for fans, but six discs of “Tsunku Sings Berryz Koubou”? Yeah, I could find 9000 yen to put towards that.
I’m in love with Tsunku
“Uchouten Love” and “Ee-ka!?” are my favourites when it comes to listening to these backings
No wonder I feel something missing while listening to newer H!P stuff. Please bring back the yahoos! we miss so much, UFA. :(
I know right! :( Like in Iku ZYX! Fly High by ZYX (at the start of the song). Also in Ne-e? by Aya.
But my favourite is the “BUT I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOU BABY” in Anata nashi de wa Ikite Yukenai by Berryz Kobo.
Teranya and the Musumettes. Actually this one is creepy af when hearing all the Sayashi and Michishige harmonies, but nice when hearing Tsunku who sang the whole chorus. I didn’t even notice all of this.
