27 12 2011

It’s that time of year again when I compile a list of the best 100 J-Pop songs I’ve listened to during the year. IMO 2011 was slightly better than 2010 in terms of great music coming out in Japan. It was tough as it always is in doing this countdown but overall I’m satisfied with what I picked.

You listen to a lot more artists from Japan than I do. And if I remember correctly, you live in Europe. How do you listen to Japanese songs? Can you recommend services (like radio/internet/channels) to me?🙂

BTW, I like Love Survive too! And of course, all the 000 Family🙂

I find the best way to listen to J-Pop songs is on Youtube. There are several weekly Oricon chart countdown videos you can check out. If I find a song I like on these countdowns I’ll go and look for them on Youtube.

As for radio/internet services, I did listen to Japan-A-Radio years ago. They had a good mix of current and old J-Pop songs. Here’s the link: http://www.japanaradio.com/ . You could try these stations in this link as well: http://www.shoutcast.com/radio/Jpop .
