KPP1

Are you excited that J-Pop princess Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is heading down under shortly? But before she blows you away with her performances in Sydney and Melbourne, here are five of our favourite KPP songs selected by the writers at Hello Asia! All agree that Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s unique music style always has us excited for more and we definitely can’t wait to see her in Australia!

So in no particular order:

5. Yumeno Hajima Ring Ring

Though “Yumeno Hajima Ring Ring” has a cheerful background and is quite adorable with a polar bear, the lyrics are dedicated to teachers and friends, thanking them and asking them to “please give me some courage” as she journeys to the city.

4. PONPONPON

Carrying Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s trademark standout theme, the chorus is catchy and there’s even a cute dance to go along with the song!

3. Kira Kira Killer

When someone mentions ‘Kira’ to me, I immediately think of Death Note. However, in this song, “Kira Kira Killer” translates to ‘Glitter, Glitter Killer’! There are also mentions of popular Japanese slang like ‘doki, doki’ which is similar to the sound of a heart beating.

2. Furisodation

This was the first KPP video I stumbled across while navigating around Japanese acts Da-iCE, ViViD and Diaura. While most of us sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to celebrate turning another year older, KPP sings of her turning twenty, a time where she debates ‘Am I an adult? Or am I a kid?’. This sweet catchy song is quite easy to get stuck in your head, as yours truly has experienced!

1. Fashion Monster

Am I the only one wanting G-Dragon and KPP to have a collaboration, or at least have a secret meeting to swap fashion advice? Kyary Pamyu Pamytu herself has said that she thinks G-Dragon is a fashion leader (and a ‘fashion monster’)! I love the different styles of clothing in the video, and the dance is definitely on my to learn list!
