It’s that time of the year again! It’s time to take a look back at what 2017 produced, H!P edition. Honestly, I’m a bit disappointed with H!P releases overall, I found it a bit underwhelming.
But I still managed to put together a list of the songs I liked this year~
Checkout: My Favorite H!P Songs of 2016
Excludes albums and single digital releases (kind of) ^_^
Uruwashi no Camellia
Tsubaki factory had an amazing year. They finally debuted and the songs they released were all spectacular. It was a close call between ‘Uruwashi no Camellia’ and ‘Hatsukoi Sunrise’. In the end their Camellia song won; I love songs the center around the group. It’s so cute and simple. I can replay it to till end of time. (x)
Honorable Mention: Hatsukoi Sunrise
Shalala! Yareru Hazu sa
Opposite of Tsubaki, Kobushi Factory did not have a wonderful year. They lost a lot and on top of that they only release one single this year, ouch! Honestly I’m not super fond of the single they released this year, but I only had two songs to choose from. I think ‘Shalala’ is a good song, but it definitely had to grow on me. (x)
Peanut Butter Jelly Love
Can you say something is too cute? No, you can not. ‘Peanut Butter Jelly Love’ is my favorite type of annoyingly cute song. It makes me happy and annoys others (which makes me happier). I love the intro as well, it’s so beautiful T_T. I’m a bit sad that Country Girls are on a semi-hiatus; they were the only H!P serving legit cute concepts. (x)
Honorable Mention: Konamaiki Girl
Fiesta Fiesta! Ruru slays my soul in the beginning of this song. Juice=Juice, along with Kobushi Factory, only released one single this year. Which is disappointing because I didn’t like the single they released. Not one bit. Fiesta Fiesta was (is) a blessing. I hope they have a better year. (x)
Ai Sae Areba Nanni mo Iranai
The thing I like the most about Angerme is their dip into something edgy and a bit rock-ish. It really spices up their discography and sets them apart from the other H!P groups. ‘Ai Sae Areba Nanni mo Iranai’ isn’t fully there, but it’s something. (x)
Honorable Mention: Kisokutadashiku Utsukushiku
Jama Shinai de Here We Go!
Morning Musume came back from the dead this year! Two singles and a full album release. I’m so happy T_T. It was also tough to pick a favorite song from them as well. ‘Jama Shinai de’ surprised me when I first saw it. I was positively overwhelmed, there was nothing about it that I didn’t like. Perrrfecto! (x)
Honorable Mention: Jealousy Jealousy
Thanks for reading! Please tell me about your favorite songs this year!
