Keeping Track Of What's With Me

After a long break....

I am so itching to sing Japanese Karaoke. I did not have anyone with me so I just opted to go to the nearest SM that has a Kumyoung machine. Going to Wako, alone is so pathethic.  Apparently, some Kumyoung Karaoke machines at SM arcades have their Korean and Japanese songs switched on still and if perchance you know the codes, you may sing the songs. But some Kumyoung Machines do not have those features much like the ones in SM Megamall and the Kumyoung Machines in Glorietta and Serendra.

Being at Makati the place I know that has a Kumyoung machine is the SM food court Worlds of Fun at the basement. I went there after work. Well I bought 5 tokens for 5 songs but I get one song more for free.  I will be posting the code for the Kumyoung machine as well my personal rating on how well I was able to cope with the pace of the song.

41983 - Wings of Words by Chemistry, Gundam Seed Destiny Final Op. (4/5)
This is a piece of cake as I am a Chemistry fan afterall. My only problem are the shift in Hiragana and Katana. There are phrases that have such shift from Hiragana then a Katana word shows up suddenly. I do not know why I cant read Katana properly in Karaoke.  Maybe I am so used to Hiragana that Katana sets me off track. Also this is the song that has not been missing in the 3 places I have tried singing Japanese songs.
41665 - La La La Love Song by Toshinobu Kobota feat. Naomi Campbell (4/5)

Slow song and I got to sing this often in Karaoke so I am pretty much used to the tempo. As usual the long consecutive kanji strings are the difficult ones to read even with furigana but I was better at it this time around.
41645 - Cruel Angel Thesis Neo Genesis  Evangelion OP (4.5/5)

This was such a surprise. In the two places I've visited earlier, this was not included in the playlist and that was the first time I am singing it.  Surprisingly, I was able to keep up with the tempo and read the lyrics as they were scrolling by. I was so happy.
41995-Sekai wa Sore wo Ai to Yobundaze -Sambomaster Densha Otoko Ending theme (3.5/5)
That was the 2nd time I was singing this in Karaoke. Again another accomplishment, I am much better at it than the first time. The only ones I stumbled are the fast verses and the kanji that I do not know.
41475- Cha la head chala - Dragon Ball z Openining (2.5/5)

I have been singing this song for many times already but I cannot seem to get the hang of it. It is fast has weird kanji and switches from hiragana to katakana in an instant. ToT To think that this is practically the first Japanese song I know together with Moonlight Densetsu.
Speaking of Moonlight Densetsu, I am shy to sing it in a public place. Maybe in Wako where we have our own room but in SM, I would not dare sing it.
41703- Ready Steady Go by L' Arc en Ciel, Hagane no  Renkin  Justushi (Fullmetal Alchemist)  Opening  (2.5/5)
FAST SONG. Well I did better this time around. I still do not know what the kanji mean  so  maybe  if  I augmented my vocab I might still get better at this.

The one is really wanted to sing was 42179- Zenryouku Shounen by Sukima Suwichi but it did not have the song ToT.
I think I will get more songs to try for later. I will make it a daily habit to sing at most 4 songs... (coz P15 for four songs XD)

Btw this is the official website for the song database for Kumyoung Machines....  link!!!!
If you want to look for Japanese songs in particular you need to click on the farthest to the right radio button that you see on screen then type in Kana of the song you would like to search.

Hehehehe.... Its along the way home anyway. If you hear someone singing Japanese in Makati SM foodcourt after working hours that would probably be me! HAHAHAHHA XD

Oh my, gawain rin namin yan, maglista ng Japanese song numbers sa Kumyoung =)) But only a few of us can read the lyrics so we also bring our own lyric sheets.

Medyo mabago bago na yung Zenryoku Shounen, kaya baka wala pa. I'm surprised they've got Sekai Wa Sore Wo though! :)) And I'm surprised you were able to sing it from the kana. Ako kahit romaji na, nauubusan pa rin ako ng hininga!

Favorite ko yung Cherry by Spitz. :P

I looked up some more of the songs this morning... Will do them later... AHAHAHAH

Well yung Zenryouku Shounen eh circa 2005 pa po... mas bago pa yung Wings of Words I think... namimili talaga... kasi yung iba walang Cruel angel Thesis eh... Walang Spitz na galing sa mga Hachimitsu Kuroba.... ToT

cool... masabi nga yan sa friend ko... balitaan mo ko pag may nakita kang dong bang ;)

Syempre meron ang DBSK... Well in Hanngeul if you dont mind. Literate ka naman dba? Hahahaha...

Yung sa Japanese part nila yung mga talagang sikat lang or yung may kasama sa anime or dorama whatnot. Ito yung regular sa "song list" ko kapag nagkaraoke ako in Japanese... 40362- 明日はくるから by 東方神起, One Piece Movie ending Theme(?)

kung mabagal na nga ako magbasa ng kana, pano pa kaya hangul? XD hahaha good luck sa akin nyahahaha

well maganda naman yang song na yan... i'll check it out sometime...
