The Top 20 Best Namie Amuro Songs

f554310bdc38b5

The J-Pop goddess Namie Amuro is in the fast lane of upcoming studio albums this year (hopefully, fingers crossed!), with last years offering of numerous maxi-single releases to accommodate us fans of Amuro-chan. But for now, I will be creating a top 20 list of my favorite songs by Ms. Namie, who has already spanned over 20 years in the business with an estimate of 35 million units sold and over 18 million digital sales (yussssss, multi-million seller right here). We jump threw the fluff, the glitter, the grittiness, and the emotional ballads. So it only makes sense to make a list in honor of the Japanese singer… Oh, the list isn’t in top order, just alphabetical. So, lets glide along the list!

19406-6lfprvhqx1

With Ayumi Hamasaki’s upcoming studio album on the way (god knows what it will be like, but I’m praying for a club-oriented one… just praying with my fingers crossed), I’ve decided to compile my favorite songs by the J-Pop Queen, who is also on the way to celebrating her 20th year-spanning career, which originated back on April 8, 1998 with her single “Poker Face”. We jump threw the fluff, the glitter, the grittiness, and the emotional ballads. So it only makes sense to make a list in honor of the Japanese singer… Oh, the list isn’t in top order, just alphabetical. So, lets glide along the list!

The 10 Best Music Videos of 2016

Year-End Videos.jpg

2016 has been a bit of a funny year for music; a few eccentric entries, a large total of deep house bangers, some swift one-hit wonders and catchy-as-hell hooks and moments. Whilst the year has brought us many tears and utter gut-wrenching moments with the loss of several music legends such as David Bowie, Prince, Lemmy, amongst a gigantic number of other icons, 2016 has also been a great year of success to many newcomers and current musicians. So, for every December 1 of each year (yes, I know… I’m late… give me a break!), I will be conducting a year-end list that compiles some of the best work in a glorious 365 day streak. But don’t worry December numbers, you will get your chance for next years inclusion… or will you? (Nah, I’m just kidding, of course you’ll get the opportunity… or will you?) ALSO, there is not particular order, although in alphabetical structure, just plain inclusions of some moments. So, without further-ado, here we gooooooooo… Continue reading “The 10 Best Music Videos of 2016”
