  1. To celebrate our little Gothic princess' return, I have dived back into her discography, and based solely on my preferences, have composed a list of what I believe to be her best songs, ranked. From the best to the very best. This list will go beyond Nana's quite minimal PV/single works, since there's so few, but won't be expanding across her projects outside of her solo works from 2002-2009 (Loveless and THE TEENAGE KISSERS). There's just too much perfection on this tiny palette as is! Covers have also been blacklisted due to it not being original, solo material. Check out the 'KEYWORDS' to make your searching easier to suit your own taste. I hope you find something to enjoy of hers! Who is Kitade Nana? Kitade Nana (北出菜奈) is a Japanese rock artist. She is affiliated with BIG APPLE and signed under Sony Music Entertainment, and has even released albums in both the United States and Europe. She debuted in 2003 with the single "Kesenai Tsumi", which was used as the first ending theme to Full Metal Alchemist anime. She has followed this with many other tie ins, from the anime Jigoku Shoujo ("Tsukihana") and drama opening to anego ("Kiss or Kiss"). After the release of her debut album, she had started wearing and representing gothic lolita fashion, and started modeling for magazines such as CUTiE, and companies from BABY to her favourite brand, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT. Though her popularity began to dwindle after this time, she continues to garner a loyal fan base due to her status as a gothic lolita model. The honorable mentions 赤い花 (Akai Hana) - Red Flower - B-side to Utareru Ame. A simply addictive and memorable pop tune. 刹那の絆 (Setsuna no Kizuna) - Bonds of a Moment - B-side to SUICIDES' LOVE STORY. Just as popping as Akai Hana! 悲しみのキズ (Kanashimi no Kizu) - Scars of Sadness - 7th single, was the theme song of PS2 game Fullmetal Alchemist 3: Kami wo Tsugu Shoujo. Simple yet effective. eighteen sky - The closing, ballad track from her debut album, "18 -eighteen-". Gorgeous. サイレン (Siren) - Image song for the Japanese releases of the Canadian cartoon series, Ruby Gloom. Released under the pseudonym of Ruby Gloom. Her best energetic number! HOLD HEART - 4th single, and has a really old school flare. The music will get stuck in your head after only one listen. The Top 10 10. 神様ひとつだけ (Kamisama Hitotsu dake) - My One And Only God Key words: Dark, atmospheric, quiet verses then sudden/loud choruses, brooding, emotional 9. 遺留品 (Iryuuhin) - Instant Keywords: Ballad, sentimental 8. 泡沫 (Utakata) - Transience Keywords: Unique (for Kitade), build up, ambient until dramatic climax 7. Alice Keywords: Ballad, typical Kitade but disguised as cute and sweet 6. 鏡の国のアリア (Kagami no kuni no aria) - Aria of the Mirror Land Keywords: Heavy, macabre, slow yet dark build up/tension, extremely rocking and jaring/haunting vocal and musical work, unique (for Kitade) 5. (月華) tsukihana - Moon Flower Keywords: Anime, theatrical, emotional, 4. Fake Keywords: Oldschool (pop) 3. SUICIDES LOVE STORY Keywords: Emotional/dramatic, ballad 2. 瞬間 (Shunkan) - Moment Keywords: Ballad 1. 消せない罪 (Kesenai Tsumi) ~Ice Cream Tenpura Ver.~ - Unerasable Sin Keywords: Remix, heavy, 'classic', rock So, have you discovered a new favourite artist? Will you be checking out her old material before she starts releasing again, or are you interested in what she'll be doing now? Feel free to add your comments and discuss! Thank you for reading~
  2. Nice. Looking forward to it.
  3. I'm really surprised you liked track 9 as much as you did! KOKIA has such a gorgeous, operatic voice, it's too bad she only ever did such music on her album "The Voice" which I strongly recommended for similar songs of hers. Track 10 was actually the only song I was feeling quite sure you'd like, ahaha. Because of the music. I can understand the lyrics being too cute when thinking about them, I had not thought that they were too much! XD Still, it's great to see someone notice the lyrics as much as I do. So my mix did have a theme for it: distance. Be it physically, or metaphorically. From distant memories, to going on a journey and arriving at another location. I even thought of doing a little something in the form of the first and last track being connected in some way. They’re both based on a ferris wheel, the first being set around one, present day, and the last one looking back at fond memories on a ferris wheel. I thought that that was pretty neat when I noticed the link, and I just had to order them that way so it’s like a full cycle. It’s funny you said that the mix was a journey for you! It was meant to be~ Tracklist is as follows: 1. Hachi – Yuuen Shigai 2. Leo Ieiri – Sabrina 3. SnoW – on & on 4. Halcali – Tip Tap Tips 5. Joe Inoue – The Journey 6. OLIVIA – Nothing’s Gonna Take My Love 7. LAST ALLIANCE – Shisshou 8. Hanako Oku – Chiisana Hoshi 9. KOKIA – Everlasting 10. lasah – i 11. Duca – Kanransha ~Ano hi to, Kinou to Kyou to Ashita to~ Any surprises there? As I had told you in our PMs, I was so worried having known of a few artists we both like that we'd have too similar musical tastes. I'm so glad it was just over-worrying! For once I'm relieved I went for such a cute mix (admittedly I think that's what happens each trade-off lol), but I'm especially overjoyed with just how much you gave the songs a go. For the majority of them being too sweet, you were open to warming up to them, and I really appreciate that. I swear you've been too kind to the 3 and a half star ones still! I hope the tracklist is still a surprise and you have some treats to check out. : D Again, many apologies for being so late with this! I do hope you find the wait worthwhile! Thank you for your patience. Note about mix: ghost said himself that the mix is an all-female vocal one! ghost - blue summer
