Yes? No? by Arashi

This is my favorite Arashi song. I know it by heart! It's from Arashi's 2005 One album.


This is the live performance to the song from Arashi's 2007 Time Concert. Like the Time album, this is my favorite concert of all. I've watched it three times. (Still some pending concert to see) How I wish I were there!

Friendship by Masaki Aiba (Arashi)

In dedication to my 19th birthday.

This year I'm not asking for anything other than Friendship. You'd think that with 19 years of living the term would be a familiar one but as it turns out, it can truly be applied to only a few number of people I can tick off on one hand but won't take up all five fingers.

The first version is done by Aiba Masaki from Arashi. This was his solo piece for Arashi's 2007 Time album. Ninomiya Kazunari later used the same lyrics in a different style. I love both styles

Here is Nino's version of Friendship. It's actually much more heartfelt. It's less upbeat than Aiba's pop. But still, both are beautiful.

Asu ni Mukkate Hoeru (Face and Roar at Tomorrow) by Arashi

From the 3rd single: Typhoon Generation. It was added to the 1st compilation album. I super really like this song. <3 I have a live clip. I should probably upload it, just have to sort through my arashi videos. It's a much different feeling to watch Arashi sing this song live. XD

Jidai (Era) by Arashi

It actually took sometime before I could appreciate this song. For some reason, I love the live version better than the track version.

From the the 6th single and the Arashi Single Collection 1999-2001. It was the theme song for Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo 3 staring Matsumoto Jun.

Kitto Daijoubu (Definitly Be Okay) by Arashi

This is actually my little cousin's favorite song. I do like it but it's not my favorite. Still, it's fun to watch the video.

The song sold gold and obviously made it to #1 on Orion Weekly. It was first released as a single (16th) with a karaoke version to it. It later was included in the 2006 Arashic album.

Take Me Far Away by Ohno Satoshi (Arashi)

I decided that the method for selecting today's song would be like this: (1)open itunes, (2) selected Arashi from all artists, (3) hit play and that's the song. It actually went like this: (1) open itunes, (2) selected Arashi from all artists, (3) hit play, (4) realize it's not on shuffle, (4) close itunes, (5), (6), (7) repeat steps 1 -3. However, because Overtune was selected I had to click next. I did not think it was fair. Riiiight. Allergy and Keep a Break came on--two songs I'm not so fond of. Then Take Me Far Away played and it was it. Why am I explaining all this?  It's not the first time I attempt to select a random song for this community using this method. I always end up cheating seeing as I'm never satisfied with the first--or seconds and third!--song, lol.

Now I'm wishing that Arashi no mae no shizukesa had played before take me far away. I do like Ohno's solo. It's my top favorite solo for the Dream "A" Live album but the other song is just. . .gyah! It shall be tomorrow's song, haha.

Again, another Ohno birthday tribute.

The Bubble by Arashi

I wasn't particularly sure of what song to select for today but when I opened my itunes and scrolled through my Arashi music I couldn't help and think, "Uh! The Bubble!" It's been such a long time since I last heard this song. I remember when I was a junior in High School and I went to take my SATs, this was one of the songs I was jamming to, lol.

The Bubble is from Arashi's 2004 Iza, Now! album.

We Can Make It by Arashi

This is what started it all. Although, the song Love So Sweet (old post) first introduced me to Arashi, when I later went back to search for the boy band, this is the song I came across. It's Arashi's 19th single, also included in the 2007 Time album. The song was also used for Matsumoto Jun's dorama, Bambino.
