What’s your wedding song?

Tsutaya surveyed the question: What song would you want for your wedding?

Pretty cool question as there are tons of songs to choose from, especially in Japan since they all sing about love anyways.

1 DEEN – Celebrate
2 Arashi – One Love
3 KinKi Kids – Ai no katamari
4 DEEN – Dear Friend
5 Namie Amuro – CAN YOU CELEBRATE?
6 DEEN – Kono mama kimi dake wo ubaisaritai
8 Itsuka
9 Koichi Domoto – Ai no jyuujika
10 Kyosuke Himuro – Diamond Dust

Honestly, I thought Amuro would have topped this one with “CAN YOU CELEBRATE?,” that song was number one for over a year in Japan in 1997. But it is one of those “love it or hate it” songs. I know my siblings can’t stand that. I really don’t know about number eight since there was no artist attached to that title. I am surprised that DEEN took the win for having three of their songs on this list. The last DEEN song I remember is from 1995 when they did the theme song to Dragon Ball Z.

For my wedding song I’d want my soon-to-be spouse to write it and sing it, if he can sing. If he can’t he better hire someone who can.

What would be your wedding song?

Why Meisa Kuroki was offered Erika Sawajiri’s role!?

kuroki meisa

With everything that’s happened with Erika Sawajiri being dismissed, and Meisa Kuroki taking the role of “Yuki Mori” in Space Battleship Yamato; what are the reasons?

Well other than the obvious, [people] are saying that Kuroki fits the role of ‘Yuki Mori’ than Erika. Another reason is that there is speculation with her connection to Johnnys’ talents. She is good friends with Rina Uchiyama and Maki Horikita, who are also good friends with Johnny’s talents. But another reason is the rumor of Koki Tanaka (KAT-TUN) and Kuroki; they were rumored to be involved. So it’s like Johnny’s was quick to approve of Kuroki taking over the role.

Johnny’s loves Kuroki, its like both of the agencies are on a honeymoon,” said one of the authorized media rep.

Kuroki has appeared in several dramas with Johnnys’ talents. In 2007 she starred in the New Year historical play “Byakkotai“, with Tomohisa Yamashita and Koki Tanaka. That same year she appeared with Kazunari Ninomiya, playing the part of his girlfriend in the drama, “Dear, Father.” Other Johnnys’ talents include Koichi Domoto, Kazuya Kamenashi, and Toma Ikuta.

This type of casting seems to be a formula for success.

Kuroki’s agency is Sweet Power. Both Sweet Power and Johnny’s Entertainment have a very good relationship, which explains why both their talents work together, and are sometimes to be rumored to be in a relationship. Kuroki and Tanaka, and Rina Uchiyama and Noriyuki Higashiyama. Maki Horikita with Yamapi, Ikuta and Kamenashi; all rumors have spurred from constantly working together.

With Erika out of the running, it seems that playing in Johnny’s favor has gotten her the role. In these past two years Kuroki’s been starring in drama’s with Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (SMAP), Kazuya Kamenashi (KAT-TUN), Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi), Yuu Yokoyama (Kanjani8), Yamapi (NEWS), and Koki Tanaka (KAT-TUN). And now with SMAP’s Takuya Kimura.

So do you agree??

Apparently a majority of older women answered this pole. With that said, some of them should feel like pedo’s with some of those choices (i.e. Yamada Ryosuke). And how hyde lost to Jaejoong I will never understand, hyde is by far the better looking one, although I’m also prone to say that TOP looks better than all of them, but that’s a personal opinion and not based on physical looks alone. How Hotaka beat out any of the Big Bang, DBSK, GLAY members is beyond my me too. Well it goes to show that Japanese women there have odd taste. At least some they got it right with INORAN, you can never go wrong with him, although he should have been number one, he totally beats out Hotaka.

I do give props to DBSK and Arashi for having most if not all, it’s members in this ranking.
