what are some good songs of his? i've only heard LAKuEN but i really liked it.
j_o_n_n_o 9th-Apr-2012 01:00 am (UTC)
LAKuEN was the first Ken song I heard too, loved ever since. He put out a really great best-of a few years back which would be a good place to start, but give these a go:

Iwanai Kankei is awesome. Somehow I also like Seishun Days from the same album.
j_o_n_n_o 9th-Apr-2012 01:14 am (UTC)
That album could pretty much be a best of album, not a bad song on it. Sentimental is amazing too.
michannosekai 9th-Apr-2012 02:32 am (UTC)
Agree. And it has a very good balance between ballad and up tempo with little bit swing - jazz here and there.

michannosekai 9th-Apr-2012 01:07 am (UTC)
Basically all songs from album SentimentaLovers... are my favourites. I also like Even If, Gaining Through Losing, Elegy, Boku wa kimi ni for the Ballad, Fake Star (my personal fav is the jazz version one), Sekai de Ichiban Kimi ga Suki, Strawberry Sex, Love Love Love for the upbeat one.

If you like Jazz and would like to hear some cover, Ken's Bar 1 and 2 would be very nice to hear.

j_o_n_n_o 9th-Apr-2012 01:02 am (UTC)
Srry, Masa's been melted down to make new parts for Gackt.
nansuki 9th-Apr-2012 02:32 am (UTC)

YES. I love Hirai Ken's music. <3

michannosekai 9th-Apr-2012 01:12 am (UTC)
Two of my bias will release new single. I just wonder WHY oh WHY dear Hirai Ken and Shiina Ringo/(before) Tokyo Jihen love to release stuffs very near with each other? Do you know the effect to my wallet?
sufafiori 9th-Apr-2012 01:35 am (UTC)
In reply to your comment - Hyde's looking pretty good at 43. Must be the genes.
uledy 9th-Apr-2012 01:40 am (UTC)

j_o_n_n_o 9th-Apr-2012 01:55 am (UTC)
There are barbies less plastic than Hyde's face.
mjspice 9th-Apr-2012 02:27 am (UTC)
Yeah Hyde, TMRevolution & GACKT & dozen others. XD
aibada 9th-Apr-2012 01:44 am (UTC)

mjspice 9th-Apr-2012 02:25 am (UTC)
Only here for Ken Hirai.
kazeryl 9th-Apr-2012 02:45 am (UTC)
'will ur faves look that naturally good at 40? oop no. '

There are quite a lot actually..XD
Just that we dont research on them.
But yes, he looks great at his age.
squallina 9th-Apr-2012 03:21 am (UTC)
+1! There are definitely a number of matured good-lookers out there.
mjspice 9th-Apr-2012 04:03 am (UTC)
What you said bb.
kazeryl 9th-Apr-2012 05:07 am (UTC)
As always bb.
atarashiiyoake 9th-Apr-2012 04:18 am (UTC)
IA. I could name tons of people that, imho, look great at that age. OP makes it sound like everyone else is old and wrinkly by then. 40 isn't that old, wtf.
kazeryl 9th-Apr-2012 05:07 am (UTC)
I know right!
40 makes a person stands out.
And their life starts at there. XD
Sexy guys/woman will be at that age onwards.

p.s.Matured people are more appealing.
atarashiiyoake 9th-Apr-2012 05:19 am (UTC)
So true! I'm fnding a lot of people more appealing as they grow older. The life experience and you can see that they've grown into who they want, or need to be. It makes a person more attractive.

So many people act like life is over at 30, I feel like it's only just beginning there.

King of Jpop? Hirai Ken is more like the elusive prince of Jpop to me. He appears out of nowhere, captures hearts with his charming radiance and angelic voice, then slips back under the radar. I <3 it!
mjspice 9th-Apr-2012 05:30 am (UTC)
THIS! Well Fukuyama is Jpop tho but GACKT is Jrock so I don't even know how they are related. XDDD
mjspice 9th-Apr-2012 04:39 pm (UTC)
You speak the truth! *shakes hands*
