It's not a secret that I love Japanese Pop music. I dedicated a twitter, tumblr, and livejournal account for it, isn't it obvious? lol
But aside from JPOP, many people, including my friends, don't know that I'm also into JRock (or even Rock in general) Maybe because I'm not pretty showy when it comes to liking such genre but I truly enjoy it equally to JPOP.
When I was in my grade school, I got hooked by Honey and Clover (anime) and it has this ending song that I very much like. (I discovered most of my obsessions today by watching shit tons of animeYEY ANIME!) It was "Waltz" by Suneohair. He has this calming and easy-listening voice so I started listening to his other songs.
Since then, whenever I watch an anime with awesome opening and closing theme, I try to research more about the artists and support them.Gladly, some JRock artists are on Spotify, like Asian Kung-Fu Generation, Galileo Galileo(;__;),Aqua Timez, etc, and my recent favorite Radwimps but unfortunately,me who is from the Philippines couldn't enjoy ALL of their songs on Spotify due to Japan's infamous copyright issues,
Spotify Japan has been launched yesterday and I was so ecstatic when I heard about this news. FINALLY, I COULD LISTEN TO MY FAVORITE?JAPANESE ARTISTS WITHOUT COPYRIGHT ISSUES! but still, JE's old-fashion sense.remains........
I just hope I could have enough phone memory to store all my songs because sadly, it could only accomodate the JPOP genre. gosh.
