Yui - How Crazy Your Love Listen if you like: Taylor Swift
Let me tell you. It is impossible to find videos of YUI on the interwebs. Sony Music Japan has got her locked up tighter than a virgin's chastity belt. So instead, I had to settle for a picture of the album cover so I could tell you I'm picking up her album How Crazy Your Love this week. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure why I'm picking it up. All her songs sound the same and they've been steadily losing something for the last few years. But I just still really want to like her I guess, so for better or worse, I'm picking this one up.
斉藤和義 (Kazuyoshi Saito) - やさしくなりたい Listen if you like: Tom Petty
You've gotta love the faux retro style of the video for this single. The washed out colors, Beatles references, and Japanese Ed Sullivan stand-in with the unsettling grin. Goes great with their older, traditional rock sound.
