— Today, we would like to ask you two to each name and talk about five singles that you like.
Fukumura: That’s going to be difficult…
Yamaki: Does that mean songs that impressed me personally?
— It’s completely up to you. You can name songs that you used to love listening to as a child, or you can name songs that have been memorable to you performing them in your respective groups, or anything else. It’s not that they have to be necessarily your favorite five of all time. How about you two take turns? What’s your first song, Yamaki?
Yamaki: I’ve already talked about it lots of times, but: “Kimagure Princess.” My list wouldn’t be complete without this one. It’s the song that made me aware of Morning Musume and Hello! Project in the first place. I had this classmate who was hooked on them and it was that classmate who got me into it. I had my prejudices — I thought idols could only be “cute,” and no one in my family had ever listened to anything even close to idols, so I really didn’t know a thing about what idols actually were. That was when I heard “Kimagure Princess” and it was just this huge shock for me. “But this isn’t anything like the idols I know!” It didn’t take long until I was hooked.
