I think NEWS no (Sakura Girl) is the best spring song =(
chibi_hime 6th-Apr-2012 09:37 pm (UTC)
Me too! Just a lil sad that it's #70...
yumiko_okahawa 6th-Apr-2012 06:36 pm (UTC)
This post misses out Kagrra, *laugh* Of course, they wouldn't be considered in this, because they never got that popular.
But if anyone really, really treasures the cherry blossoms, it's Isshi. I think no other band wrote about cherry blossoms and spring that much.

Please, leave behind at least the cherry trees.
aikkai 6th-Apr-2012 07:50 pm (UTC)
Just a BIG Thank You for mentioning them ♥

Ketsumeishi's Sakura and Sangatsu Kokonoka are some of my favourite songs.
kuronochou 6th-Apr-2012 06:40 pm (UTC)
Wow thank you for posting this! I wasn't able to watch the whole program last night.
I love Spring/Sakura songs. And I'm happy that NEWS' Cherish is there^^
Another thing, I find it funny that no matter what category it is the list is still filled with Arashi and AKB48 songs.

Happy for KARA and ARASHI ^^
atarashiiyoake 6th-Apr-2012 06:41 pm (UTC)
Wow, this is the worst list of 'spring songs' I've seen so far this year. O.o
chrismellody 6th-Apr-2012 06:46 pm (UTC)
At first I was like, 'wow' and then I read your comment, I have to agree.
karavanuemura 6th-Apr-2012 06:42 pm (UTC)
SMAP - Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana.

Never getting tired of this song.

wtf is with give me five.
ryocchi 7th-Apr-2012 04:43 am (UTC)
Give me five lyrics:

Sakura songs flow through the streets,
And in a blink of time, it's time to say goodbye.
In the corner on the school's wall,
Everyone secretly signs their names.

Our uniforms
Are already off
By the time the spring breeze blows by.
Before long
The flowers fall,
And we see a new dream.

My friend, from experience,
I believe that tomorrow will be shining.
So, graduation is just an exit,
And then an entrance.
My friend, every path
Only goes forward.
Don't say 'goodbye,'
And we'll meet again soon.
So, now let's high five!

The many pictures that we took
Are now important things we hold onto.
The gossipers that would fight
Are now patting each other's backs.

Not yet has everyone
Came back
And looked into the small classroom.
Regretting
Our earlier times
Is our future.

Tears come from a child,
And they cry for the first time after being born
So, not all of the bitter things have come,
And so we're not used to them yet.
Tears are on the wet faces that
We show each other.
We completely understand that
We have forgotten our lifelong friends,
So let's high five!

My friend, from experience,
I believe that tomorrow will be shining.
So, graduation is just an exit,
And then an entrance.
My friend, we met by chance
They were the best days in my youth
Not yet, is it possible to say
'Thank you' to you,
So, let's high five!

So you see, the song is relevant.

Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana. Forever.
extinctserpent 6th-Apr-2012 07:39 pm (UTC)

kazu_kumaguro 6th-Apr-2012 08:06 pm (UTC)
is this really a spring song list?
what is spring song actually suppose to mean?
liime_arix 6th-Apr-2012 08:20 pm (UTC)
Songs that remind you of spring in terms of music and/or lyrics? So like graduation songs, songs about flowers, blooming, sakura, etc. That's what I got based on song names.
asaphira_sachi 6th-Apr-2012 08:09 pm (UTC)
59. Arashi - Troublemaker / 2009

Wasn't it 2010??

Anyways, one spring/sakura song that will always be one of my fav's (and unfortunately didn't make to the list..) is Morning Musume's Sakura Mankai.

I was shock to see KARA on the list.
Go KARA :) and AKB48, Arashi
keshigomiu 6th-Apr-2012 09:11 pm (UTC)
2. Matsutoya Yumi - Haru yo Koi / 1994

So relevant! And her Kouhaku perf was flawless.. ^_^

No Yuzu in top 50? their songs are so fit for spring!
cherylena 6th-Apr-2012 09:35 pm (UTC)
While I do like AKB, I think most of their songs are only there because of their current popularity.
yukinoo13 6th-Apr-2012 10:40 pm (UTC)
I don't think so,while their sakura songs always in their fans fav songs
chibi_hime 6th-Apr-2012 09:45 pm (UTC)
Such an interesting mix of happy and sad songs. I used to think of spring as a happy time because winter is finally over. But because it's also graduation season in Japan, I don't anymore... Remioromen's Sangatsu Kokonoka makes me cry every time.

Well, good news! One of my students got into Keio university and will be starting in a few weeks!!



PS: Utada's Sakura drops has an extra "i" in the title.
liime_arix 6th-Apr-2012 11:08 pm (UTC)
Thanks ^^ I fixed it.
tsukikei 6th-Apr-2012 10:11 pm (UTC)
Sakurazawa! ♥ I also love AKB48's Sakura no Shiori and Ikimonogakari's SAKURA. Those would be my top three.
