JPop Spotlight August 25-31

This week we are going to focus our JPop attention on one of Japan’s biggest rock groups One OK Rock. I was initially turned off by the poppy rock due to the amount of English they use in their songs. It seems as if over half of their lyrics are in English, which is not necessarily what I want out of my JPop.

However, their new song Mighty Long Fall, which is the promotional theme for the new Rurouni Kenshin live action movie, convinced me to give them another listen. I’ve got to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Not my favorite Japanese rock group, but they do have several songs that I decided to go ahead and buy off of itunes.

If you haven’t already, give them a listen.
