Blogger Issues

I'm really sorry about this guys, but I seem to be having problems with the hyperlinking in blogger...whenever I try to make a hyperlink, they just disappear in the actual post. For now, until I get it fixed, please just copy and paste the links on to your browsers if you wanna use any of the links. I know it is troublesome, and once again I apologize, but please bear with me I'm new at this. Thanks for understanding, hopefully I'll get that fixed soon. If anyone can help me on fixing this don't in contacting me. Happy blogging :D


I have some tips I'd like to share with you guys. When you listen to the songs and are reading the lyrics pay close attention to the pronunciations. You might be tempted to pronounce the word the way you're used to, but it might pronounced in a different way. For example when you see a word like "ha" as a word on its own it might be pronounced "wa" instead of what it is originally. All it takes is just listening and seeing at what points you need to pronounce a word differently. Another example would be "o" by itself, it would be pronounced "wo." Its confusing I know...but so is every language, all we have to do is get used to the rules.

More tips coming soon! ;3

Patch #1

These are the links to the lyrics of the first patch of songs. This is the format in which the songs will be presented. For the site where I get my lyrics the song's lyrics in Romaji and the English translations are right next to each other, easy to figure out.
1.Song name by Artist
link#1(either both or Japanese)
link#2(English if the first link doesn't have both)

1. Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari by Supercell

2. Starry Heavens by Day After Tomorow*

3. Snow Fairy** by Funkist

4. Eternal Pose*** by Asia Engineer

5. Staple Stable by Chiwa Saitou****

6. Super Noisy Nova by Sphere

7. Closer by Inoue Joe*****

*Not the movie >_>
**Sounds weird...but its an awesome song.
***Not a modeling song -_-'
****Just click on the "English" button for English translation.
*****Probably the most normal names out of the whole list lol.

Welcome to J-Pop!

Hiya guys! Thanks for visiting my blog :3 I'm making this blog so that people like me who want to learn Japanese can have another outlet for studying. "I pretty much learned English by singing English songs so why not do the same with Japanese music?" I asked myself. Basically making this blog so I can help others who want to learn the language. It is hard, but at the same time its fun so I can't imagine learning a language without being able to sing it, but that's just me ;) So this is how I'm going to do it. I'm gonna post 3-5 different(new) songs every Tuesday and Thursday. Along with the songs i upload/link I will add a link to where you can see the lyrics for the song in Japanese character, the Romaji lyrics(Romanized Japanese which translates the Japanese characters using the English alphabet), and the English lyrics( just so you know what you guys are singing lol). Also if I can I will add Youtube links so that you guys can see the actual singers and so on. I'm going to try to offer a great variety of songs to listen to so all you guys have to do is listen to the ones you like. If there is a song you like in particular and you want to know more about it just leave me a comment or an email saying how awesome it was and so on. If there is a song you don't like also send me a message or leave a comment telling me if there is anything in specific you'd like to listen. Just as there is many genres in music in English it is the same with every language so just let me know. Above anything else...COMMENT! I wanna know what you guys think good or bad(just take it easy >_> there's no need for internet wars ._.) I think that is all for this long as hell intro lol. Happy blogging guys. Sayonara(goodbye).
