I would like to think so!
I'm sure many of you have heard of her by now, A high-school aged fashion blogger/model who recently (just two days ago) released her first album, "Moshi Moshi Harajuku", featuring her already hit song PONPONON. Ever since PONPONPON came out, I've been seeing her everywhere! When I first heard of her through tumblr, I had seen a few of her famous hengao (funny faces) around and was excited to know she was going to be produced by Yasutaka Nakata (producer of Capsule, Perfume, Meg, and a few others). I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that a good 70% if not more of my iTunes library consists of songs he produced xD. There was a 45 second preview of the song PONPONPON released when I heard of her, and when I listened to it, I have to be honest, it didn't grab me completely. However~ maybe a week or so later, 30 seconds of the music video was posted to youtube. I have to say, the music video can grab just about anyone's attention xD. Within hours I had the silly ponponwayway dance memorized and the song was impossible to get out of my head! Not that I'm complaining about it x) ~
For those who haven't seen it before, and those who like to stop everything to watch it whenever you see it posted (I can't be the only one right??), here you go~
Definitely a lot to take in, a lot to be confused by, and a lot to love! I'd be lying to you if I said I haven't seen it at least 50 times by now xD
Anyways, this is definitely the kind of song that grows on you. After familiarizing myself with the lyrics (click here for a lots of hengao and a great translation!), I couldn't help but start to obsess ;u;. I've found it stuck in my head more and more, and so ~ I decided to go ahead and record a song cover of it for fun xD. I mean, why not? I've always wanted to do one haha. I'll warn you before you click that I'm sounding pretty derptastic at parts. But it was fun! I think I might even do more hahaha.
The rest of the album is pretty great too! I really enjoy her image, music, and style, so I plan on supporting her!
So that's my mild obsession with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu! What do you guys think of her ;u;?
Thanks for taking a look~!
