Sunday Serenade is one of our Periodicals, which we decided to start up because of our love for Asian music.
What we do for Sunday Serenade is simple: we recommend music videos for you to watch (three at a time). Our main goal is to develop everyone’s vocabulary in Asian music, showcasing videos from all over (including Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, etc). We will show videos both new and old. Basically, we want to make an Asian music fan out of you.
That being said, let’s get jamming!
This week’s Sunday Serenade: Feeling sad? Let’s get Genki!
It’s almost the end of the holidays. Going back to work? School?
[Insert something else that requires effort and moving.]
Well for starters, don’t go looking at it as “just another boring day.” Just think of it as a fresh new start to achieve something that requires effort and hard work, or even to experience a new adventure.
So have you got a plan yet? No? Great! Now we need some good cheery music to get us going and I’ve picked three Japanese songs that will be sure to light your mood and get you motivated into at least, tapping your feet.
“Nee nee nee nee.” This phrase is guaranteed to get stuck in your head for a while. The center of this week’s Sunday Serenade, this song is about your plans for today, for tomorrow, and the adventures that are awaiting you.
A bit cliche, but any Kyary song is bound to get you up on your feet. It’s extremely catchy and hard to watch and not be woken up. So remember no matter what, if you’re bored or have nothing to do, just “pon pon wei wei wei.”
We’re ending off with this slightly mellow, yet upbeat song. A classic for many, “Ohayou”, which was used as the opening for the anime Hunter x Hunter, is about how the little gesture from you or others, such as saying “Good morning!” can make a huge difference in your day.
Stay tuned next week for more awesome tunes!
