Radio Music

Postby Kisshu » Tue 03.27.2007 3:14 pm

I'm just wondering which artists are commonly heard on the radio in Japan. Like which artists almost all Japanese young people listen to and stuff. I can tell what artists are msot popular here in America, and I would be interested in seeing which are most popular in Japan....

I've actually been wondering this, too. I guess a look at the Oricon charts would prove helpful?

This site has info, too, but it's in English.

Thanks. Yeah, I noticed it last year when I was talking to a bunch of foreign exchange students. They all seemed to know about these artists that I had never even heard of and said that these artists were very popular in Japan. O_o

My Japanese penpal was interested in many 90's American pop singers. o: I guess what's "in" in one country isn't always the same in another, ne?

That would be amazing o: Too bad buying all that foreign music would cost a lot, and I doubt the demand's very high, either T.T

I know. But I'm sure all the little anime obsessors who claim to love Japanese because its "anime" would turn the station on.

Utada and Ayumi are always on the top spots, Flavor of Life has taken #1 for a couple of weeks. YUI's new song is #2 now, I think. Ai Otsuka has like 4 songs scattered around the charts, I remember seeing Kat-tun in the top 10 and bunch of those boy bands. The ones I dont really know are those opera singers that always seem to be around #30. Most of the artists and songs are jrock and jpop though.

Hm.. Opera singers? But of course I know Utada and Ayumi. And I'm sure that Flavor of Life has gained a lot of it's popularity for being in Hana Yori Dango Season Two... it really is a good song. and that is a big compliment from me because I usually dislike listening to Japanese female singers. (since many tend to be "genki" singers O_o)
