JE Debut Songs Ranking

I think Johnny’s always have the best debut songs and everyone else needs to take a note with their new artists. A Johnny’s group’s discography might not always be good as a whole, but their debut songs are generally epic – cheesy, exciting, infective, which, when all put together, mean totally awesome.Unlike many other artists, who try to gain momentum with their later releases, JE debut songs always have a strong impact and often stay as one of the group’s most popular songs throughout their career.

Here’s a ranking of the best 10!… or, since I’m only considering the still active groups (aka nothing BS: Before SMAP) the best and worst. (…what, my title isn’t that deceiving.)

It’s that time of year again! For those who are new to this: Johnny’s releases calendars for their artists every year, but according to the school year: that is, from April of this year to March of the next. All calendars are around 2000 yen and go on sale late February or early March. (Only Arashi and groups that debuted afterwards have calendars – so for big fans of V6, Kinki, or SMAP, sorry.)

Kame in anan

In what I consider the biggest upset choice of the year – this year’s anan sex issue’s posterboy is KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya.

Unlike previous years (like Yamapi’s risque photos last year) there is no female model and there’s only a tame amount of skin being shown in the photos – the most baring of which only showing Kame’s upper body.

Johnny’s Countdown 08-09 Recap

Because this is the new years countdown I really care about. 😀

Arashi were the hosts again this year, and the Tokyo Dome stage used NEWS’ layout since they had dome concerts at the same time. Different was this this year the broadcast was split – KinKi Kids were broadcast from Osaka Dome, and Tackey and Kazukiyo Nishikiori (of Shounentai) were broadcast from the stage of the upcoming Tackey stage show.

Jin Wants To Taste Your Lovejuice

Akanishi Jin’s solo “LOVEJUICE” on the KAT-TUN “Don’t U Ever Stop” single is possibly one of the dirtiest English songs I have ever heard – even dirtier than all those rap songs that only talk about booties and hoes and whatnot.

First, just listen to the song – it’s got a great R&B beat, paired with his smooth vocals.

KAT-TUN – Don’t U Ever Stop

KAT-TUN is releasing their next single, Don’t U Ever Stop, on May 12th.

…sometimes, I wonder how huge KAT-TUN fans live. Can they ever pay the rent buying all those releases? Do they go hungry buying merchandise? If you look at that regular edition, you’ll realize that it’s only 476 yen. What?! KAT-TUN only charging 476yen for a single?! Are they pitying the fans’ wallets?
