If it’s a song they often perform live but that wasn’t a single, does that alone make it lesser-known? How well-known can a song be before it’s not “lesser-known” anymore?

Most of the songs on the Morning Cop album are good. Although Heike’s in there as well so I’m not sure if they’re all Morning Musume songs.

There’s lots of great album songs. I especially recommend listening to the kind that Morning Musume doesn’t sing much these days: the ones where the lyrics describe the protagonist’s daily life and her feelings in close detail.
I might recommend the 3rd album’s “Aisha Loan de” and “Kuchizuke no Sono Ato,” as well as the 5th album’s “Tomodachi (♀) ga Ki ni Itteru Otoko Kara no Dengon.”

There are quite a lot of songs like “Ame Fura” that are almost like they’re well-known for being hidden gems. So this one is tough… If I was to name a song, then maybe I’d make it something like “Shinnen Dake wa Tsuranukitoose!”?

10. カラフル名無しさん 2019年04月15日 21:18 ID:O9S.l7MW0
“Egao YES Nude” definitely does that. It might be different depending on the version and it’s very subtle, but in the first verse the bass is doing this vibrato or string bending thing, right? That makes it sound so indescribably erotic, or like… wet. It sounds so danceable.

I like the intro to “The Matenrou Show.” And one of the songs mentioned in the thread, “Wakattenai ja nai,” is also not bad at all.
12. カラフル名無しさん 2019年04月15日 21:21 ID:O9S.l7MW0
The warmness of the bass tone in “21ji Made no Cinderella” is great. It adds great flavor in just the right places. It’s in the middle, but not directly in the middle… The worst I could say about it is that it’s a little “murky” and too relaxed, but that groove together with the rest of the instrumental is just so cool. Maybe it helps that the melody reminds me of The Style Council. (laughs) That fill-in before the last chorus gives me goosebumps.

“Hello, Saitama Super Arena! The eight of us are called °C-ute! Please listen: Massara Blue Jeans!” That was their self-introduction when they’d just been formed as they performed the brand-new “Massara.” When they played the footage of that first performance at their break-up concert and the intro started playing, that was what got everyone the most fired-up during the whole concert. That just proves how it was both their first and their best song.

You need someone who can sing in a really powerful way like Maimi to bring out the good in this song. If they try to just “sing to the music” or use clever vocal tricks or something, then it just comes across as a boring song where the singer’s trying to show off. That’s true for most °C-ute songs actually, but especially this one.

I feel like Girls’ Generation was in charge of that whole “cool highly-skilled idol group” thing at the time. Later, after the K-pop idol boom had cooled down, people started paying attention to °C-ute which then led to their 2013 Budokan performance.

“Campus Life,” “Dance de Bakoon,” “Kiss me,” “Momoiro Sparkling,” “Kimi wa Jitensha”… °C-ute was releasing all these singles around this time that later went on to becoming their representative songs. I believe if °C-ute hadn’t had this succession of great songs at the time, they would’ve probably been done for. That’s how crucial of a period it was for them.

This was when they were starting to displace Tsunku as the producer and move into a new production system, when the songs were generally getting to be more plain and serious. But since this was a Kenshuusei album, there was no interference from the office. Perhaps that’s why Tsunku was given near-total freedom in making it, thus making it a totally Tsunku-like, great album.

“Onna ni Sachi Are” is apparently what marked the beginning of Platinum Era, but ambience-wise it was definitely “Resonant.” And then it ended with “Lullaby,” right?

There’s no doubt that it’s a great song. These recent songs aren’t the kind of stuff that their juniors are going to be singing 10 years from now. But as long as H!P continues to exist, this song is of the sort of quality that it’s still going to be sung 10, even 20 years from now.

Seeing “Nanchatte Renai” on Music Station and “Kimagure Princess” on Music Fighter is what made me into a fully-fledged wota. And this was when being a wota was wildly unpopular among all my normal friends.

I’m probably in the minority here, but for me the best Platinum song is “Onna to Otoko no Lullaby Game.”
13. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2019年08月10日 15:59
This is an Eastern European folk song kind of melody, and the choreography is in the image of the Cossack dance. >>10‘s “Lullaby Game” is also like an Eastern European folk song, but the choreography depicts marionette puppets — and the home of marionettes, by the way, is Czechoslovakia. I feel like these nods to Eastern Europe around this time are very much in the spirit of “Platinum Era.”

Just reading the lyrics it’s like, “what the hell kind of a song did they make these idols sing?!” (laughs) But then combined with the melody and choreography, it becomes so cool. They apparently performed this as the second song at ROCK IN. Must’ve been good.

That might be in my top 10 best H!P songs list. “Semi.” RT @fu_furari: @tsunkuboy I think “Semi” is a masterpiece. This song is what definitively made me into a Berryz Koubou fan. Well, there are really so many masterpieces that I can’t even choose one.

It’s weird how much Tsunku likes “Semi.”

When “Matenrou Show” came out, he himself was saying like, “is there anyone else out there in Japan writing songs like this?” So that’s probably in there.

“Manpower” is a masterpiece.

With “Manpower,” he was really into the arrangement when it was still only a work-in-progress — so much so that he chose to release it in an incomplete state.

“Kanojo ni Naritai!”
35: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 16:18:48.18 0
Seeing as he chose “Semi,” it could mean that he prefers mid-tempo songs and ballads.

I hope “Busu Tetsu” is included on that list.

It’s always amazing to see how popular “Manpower” is on threads like this.
9. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2019年05月31日 21:30
I don’t really “get” most of the songs that people usually post in threads like this. Weirdly enough, I tend to prefer songs that aren’t popular among most wota. Maybe this is something that’ll change the longer I remain a wota?
11. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2019年05月31日 22:32
It feels like a lot of the Berryz wota especially are middle-aged guys from Tsunku’s generation, and many of the female wota are the same age as the Berryz members. Both those groups tend to like the more bittersweet songs.

“Romance no Tochuu”
“Ijiwaru Shinaide Dakishimete yo”
No one’s named these two songs…?
92: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 16:47:49.23 0
“Ijiwaru Shinaide Dakishimete yo” is a godly song in my books, but I’m not sure how Tsunku himself feels about it.
96: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 16:57:38.53 0
I feel like he was pretty enthusiastic about songs like “Kimagure Princess” back when he was writing them.
88: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 16:43:04.62 0
It’s gotta be “Otoko Tomodachi,” the song he wrote when he learned Makoto was getting married.
101: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 17:08:08.07 0
Taiyou to Ciscomoon is definitely included in the list.
105: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 17:15:39.58 0
I’m not 100% sure about this, but I’m pretty sure that in his discussion with Matsuko he said that he put in absolutely everything he was capable of when he was writing those Taiyou to Ciscomoon songs.
114: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 17:35:13.85 0
He stated that he was free to do exactly as he pleased with the Kenshuusei album, so something from that would probably be on the list.

I’m more curious to know what exactly his intentions were with “Ganbare Nippon Soccer Fight.”
115: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 17:35:20.57 0
Rather than his favorites, I’d like to know what he thinks are the worst songs he ever wrote. I want to hear his self-reflections.
141: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 18:18:07.28 0
The song that’s entirely filled with Tsunku♂’s maiden heart: “Momoiro Kataomoi.”

When Tsunku appeared on Hyadain’s radio program, the songs he brought over to play on the show were “Anata Nashi de wa Ikite Yukenai,” “Semi,” and “Sabori.” So those three are included.
31: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 16:15:28.35 0
Tsunku himself said to Hyadain something like, “if you want to learn about my idea of femininity, then study the lyrics of “Semi” and “Sabori.”“
166: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 18:52:45.75 0
Some backstory to this: the previous episode was a Musume Special (in which Tsunku chose the songs “Inspiration!,” “Pyoko Pyoko Ultra,” and “Wagamama Kinomama Ai no Joke”), so in this episode he was choosing from non-Musume songs.
Of the shuffle songs, Tsunku chose “Chokotto LOVE.” When asked what he would choose from Berryz Koubou, he named those three songs. (Hyadain chose “Anata Nashi de wa Ikite Yukenai.”) He also named his S/mileage favorites: “Choto Mate Kudasai” and “aMa no Jaku.” (Hyadain chose “Choto Mate Kudasai.”)
25: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 16:08:13.36 0
He himself used to sing “Mr. Moonlight.”
He probably quite likes that one.

Hashimoto said at an event that Tsunku went so far as to personally doing the mixdown of “Resonant Blue.”
91: 名無し募集中。。。 2019/05/30(木) 16:47:34.57 0
He’s done self-covers of “Resonant Blue,” “Osaka Koi no Uta,” and “Aruiteru.”

For no reason in particular, I got curious so I went and re-read the lyrics of “Jitensha Chiririn.” It’s weird of me to say so myself, but I quite like this. I wonder which I like better, this or “Gakkyuu Inchou”…?

I’m pleased with that one as well. RT @IamMakotoNontan: Tsunku-san, I absolutely love “Itsumo to Onnaji Seifuku de.” The taste of the song resembles that of Goto Maki’s “Tokutouseki” (B-side of “Te wo Nigitte”). There’s something nostalgic and heartrending about it. (laughs)

I like “Machiawase,” too. RT @a3kce02: “Machiawase,” the B-side of “Doki Love,” is truly an amazing song. There are so many great B-sides among your works. I feel like I must’ve tweeted this to you like five times already.

“Sabori” — I like that one, too. RT @kalno: I love Berryz’ “Sabori.” That sparkliness and the casual glimpses of everyday life that shine through are so nice. Chinami’s singing that sounds like she’s wishing for something, and Kumai-chan’s vocals that immediately release that tension… it’s superb. That’s perfect line distribution right there.

I like “Rival,” too. RT @sun_cherry_34: It’s so cliche of me, but I like Berryz Koubou’s “Rival.” I like everything from the old stuff like “Mirai no Tobira” all the way to “Maji Desu ka Ska!”

The more “bitter” songs, huh? I like those, too. RT @torikko: Berryz Koubou’s 1st and 2nd albums are both releases that will go down in history as two truly amazing pop recordings! Yes, I like the singles of course, but I also like “Koi wa Hipparidako,” “TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY,” “Joshi Basket-bu,” “Ohiru no Kyuukei Jikan”, and “Sabori.”

“Manpower” is nice. When people started talking about Musume again in 2013, I listened to “Manpower,” “Kashimashi,” and “Egao YES Nude” and I came right back to H!P.

“Kanojo ni Naritai”

“Shining Itoshiki Anata”

“Kare to Issho ni Omise ga Shitai”

“Toki Sora” maybe?
12. ℃-uteな名無しさん 2019年06月01日 09:03
From early Berryz, I love “Koi no Jubaku.”
1st gen Tanpopo, “ONE STEP.”
Mikitty, Country-Konno-Fujimoto’s “Shining Itoshiki Anata.”
And as for S/mileage, “Asu wa Date.”

I can’t decide…

Of course I like that he understands the “woman’s heart” and all that, but what I really love about Tsunku is how he himself is like a fair maiden.
Henkka: Goddammit, I love you, Tsunku♂.

I remember my first Nokia cellphone could hack MIDI files so I looked all over for the opening riff to “Last Kiss.” I later edited an mp3 song file and use it to this day.
Occasionally I’ll get a call at work and the entire office will hear those melancholy chimes. I ask my coworkers from Japan if they recognize the tune. Nada.
Also: “Popcorn Love” is five-star greatness.
could it be koi wo shichaimashita! for me?
I used to cry from joy listening to the together shuffle compilation cd back in 2001.
such. fun. songs.
I am a really terrible wota. I can only identify 14 (maybe 15) of the 25 KSS on the Let’s Say “Hello” cover.
Only 20 of them had a major debut, so you’re at least 70-75% there. Even I can’t recall two of the 5 dropouts’ names.
Interestingly, among the ones who dropped out early, only Inoue Hikaru isn’t in the rightmost column. I had really high hopes for her after she sang “My Alright Sky” at the 2017 Shindan Test.
Thank you for your hard work, Henkka! We love you!
BEST. THREAD. TRANSLATION. EVER.
My Top 10 Hello!Pro songs would probably be a bunch of early S/mileage singles, some Melon songs, a couple of Ju=Ju’s, and, of course, “Semi”.
It was funny when that one person wished they could see the bass session for Utakata, because you can! It was on Upcoming! Speaking which, I did 3 posts here spreadsheeting great H!P bass parts. I’m linking the one with Upcoming links here, but you can easily find the other two at the same location: https://arbitrary-greay.livejournal.com/72970.html
My current wish for songs I wish H!P would cover again include WHY from the 3rd album, the B-sides to All for One, Sankaku Kankei and Suki ni Naccha Ikenai Hito, and Kotatsu no Uta ~jyuken story~.
Oda’s been doing pretty good at mining the early albums for her Bday events, but I wish she’d check out the first Tanpopo album, too!
While some of the most Tsunku-like songs are good, I’m always fascinated by the cases where Tsunku is nearly anonymous in his own style, because he’s trying out a new genre. He’s almost always shockingly ahead of his time for the Jpop industry, and tends to be a little more rhythmic than other people’s takes. Like, there hasn’t been another song like Take Off Is Now in all of H!P, or perhaps in all of J-idoling, possibly even K-idoling, too. I wonder why?
“I would’ve quit being a wota had it not been for (Resonant Blue).”
This describes me dead-on. It didn’t return me to being a super-fan again, but more of a reminder — “Oh that’s right! THIS is what Tsunku is capable of.” that ensured that I would at least make sure to be aware of when new MM songs were released.”One•Two•Three” is the song that reeled me back in for good.
I love how much Tsunku loves “Semi”, because it’s my favorite Berryz song by far.
Well now, *ahem*, except for one other fan who lives in New York, NY.. I am probably the oldest gaijin wota H!P has. I grew up and was rockin’ back in the Beatles heyday.
When I first discovered Tsunku’s music it was so easy to pick it up! I had mostly memorized the music of his inspiration. I recognized many riffs and rhythms from the 60’s right from the start.
