More JPop OP/EDs (Bonnie Pink, Sowelu, Amuro, etc.)

I must be in a wistful mood. Some of the songs making it into my frequently played lists are various openings and endings to dorama and anime. I've long acknowledged how effective the associate between a much-loved show and a much-loved song can be. Here's what I've been listening to...

I simply love this video for Sowelu's Mamoru Beki Mono. She's never been more beautiful, too. Please don't ever tell me that it's a song in the 9th Pokemon movie. I don't want to know.

Water Me, by Bonnie Pink puts me into a mood to head over to CrunchyRoll and dive into some dorama. It's the theme song to TV series "Watashitachi no Kyokasho."

Planetarium, by Ai Otsuka, was the image song for Hana yori Dango.

Can You Celebrate, by Namie Amuro. It's the opening for Virgin Road. The above clip isn't for the whole song. My favorite clip of her performing this song doesn't have embedding allowed. It's a clip of a younger Namie, with shorter hair, some baby fat, and she cries (adorably) during the performance. You'd have to go to youtube to watch it. It's worth it.

And for search engines and those who can't be bothered to dive into the cut, that was Sowelu's Mamoru Beki Mono, Bonnie Pink's Water Me, Ai Otsuka's Planetarium, and Namie Amuro's Can You Celebrate.

I think I just lost all my manly-man cred. Did I ever have any?
