In the last class we looked at the history and development of the Japanese Schoolgirl Uniform and the also some characteristics of Japanese schoolgirls. This week are going to concentrate on school girls in Japanese pop and rock. So no talking in class and pay attention to the teacher. There will be a test at the end and if you do not pass there will catch up classes during the winter break ! ! !

Japanese borrows words from everywhere ! ! ! We have stolen words from Chinese, Portuguese and of course English and made them part of our language. We also learn English at school, so of course we can not resit showing of our English skills in our songs. Putting some English into a song can make it sound cool to Asian people but singing in a second language can be dangerous ! ! ! But these tracks all feature English and we really love love them. We hope you do too ! ! !
Herro Evelyblody ! I found this topic a little traumatic. I’d hate anyone to think that I was being anything other than totally affectionate and supportive towards the musicians here who bravely, nay, courageously, take English words and mangle them into submission in the cause of being totally hip and cool and stuff. I suppose it’s no surprise, really, “rock” is pretty much and American/English invention. Anyway, here’s some tunes we love and hope you do to. Doomu Aligatto for listening
