Hay guys! :D First time posting here and at an mp3 rotation site, for that matter!  Do please let me know if I there's anything I'm doing wrong and I'll fix it :D For today, I have NEWS' Minna ga iru sekai wo hitotsu ni ai wo motto Give and Take shimashou (what a mouthful!) and Ai Otsuka's Kurage, nagareboshi.
NEWS - Minna ga iru sekai wo hitotsu ni ai wo motto Give and Take shimashou
(Uniting the world everybody lives in, let's be a little more give-and-take about love)
Despite its long title, this song was stuck in my head for a few days the first time I heard it. Super upbeat and energetic, this song is by NEWS members Massu, Koyama and Yamapi :D This song brings a smile to my face everytime I hear it♥ Bound to keep your head bobbing with it's dancey beats!

Ai Otsuka - Kurage, nagareboshi
(Jelly fish, shooting star)
I simply adore ballads by Ai Otsuka. D: <3 If you've heard any of her upbeat songs like Sakuranbo you'd know how hyper she sounds most of the time, but her ballads are way different; soft and delicate. *0* I also love her quiet singing voice too, and the piano accomaniment really makes this song really sparkly. XD

Hey sup guys! Welcomeeee my dear friends to animando :D Thank you so much for joining. :O I love you guys so much! lakajsdf &hearts&hearts&hearts Anyway, I personally will be using this to recommend song and an occasional album that I really like. :D

chibitsuzuki & prancingsheep will be uploading their own stuff and believe me, the 3 of us have very different music taste, so you're in for a ride of your life!

I'll be leaving this post unlocked, just to let people get a feel of how this community is. I won't pimping this community much, soooo I don't expect it to grow really fast. :D B-but I likeee small cosy communities. EVERYBODY SAY AWW~ &hearts&hearts :D

And onto the recs! :D Comment if you download this! :D

Anna Tsuchiya - Crazy World ft AI {Japanese ; pop}
PREVIEW &hearts Youtube
COMMENTS &hearts Crazy World has this edgy feel to it that I like. It's like this semi-rock/punk/pop feel with a mix of R&B. It's something unique, and I love it totally. I love how AI's present in the whole song. And her rap .. ? GORGEOUS. :D And I love the contrast between AI and Anna in the PV. It's a must watch!

alan - 心・戰 Xin Zhan ~Red Cliff~ {Chinese ; ballad}
PREVIEW &hearts Youtube
COMMENTS &hearts alan's a fairly new chinese/tibetan singer under Avex. I looooove alan to bits, I swear. I know I've never pimped her out before, but omfg, I'm totally smitten by her voice every time I listen to her. asdjf &hearts There's a delicate balance between Enka and pop that I'm really fall in love with. It's not a powerful voice, but it is very special. And did I mention that she's completely fluent in Japanese as well? :D

Aretha Franklin - (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman {English ; R&B}
PREVIEW &hearts Youtube
COMMENTS &hearts I happened to chance across Obama's swearing into presidency, and WOLA! I see Aretha Franklin's performance :D And I immediately thought of this song, which is one of my favourite songs of all time. I loved Kelly Clarkson's cover of it. :D Guh, how can you NOT have this song on your playlist?!

A.R. Rahman - Lothlorien
PREVIEW &hearts Youtube
COMMENTS &hearts I was watching the Golden Globes, and A. R. Rahman's Slumdog Millionaire beat James Newton Howard & Hans Zimmer to win Best Original Score. So yes, I'm pimping him out, because he needs more love. :D Anyway this comes from the Lord of the Rings musical. Laura Michelle Kelly does a beautiful job as Galadriel, and Michael Ross as Legolas isn't too shabby either. Laura's vocal range is nothing short of amazing, and watch out for that really breathtaking note on the 1:16 of the youtube clip! :O I love how controlled and powerful her voice is. and GUH *_* why the hell hasn't she released an album yet?!
