aiko - Are we not men?
aiko
I have successfully organized my entire aiko collection.


On her official website, she does not list the albums and single she released on an indie label in her discography, but she does list them on her biography timeline. She lists some of her influences as Carole King, Billy Joel, and Stevie Wonder. She also lists one of her interests as DOGGIES! Well, not in so many words. She used the Japanese word. But I know doggies when I see doggies! Her other interests are bathing and sleeping. I could live like that, bathing, sleeping, petting doggies...

So here is the list of her albums and singles, in release order:

1.) Astral Box
2.) Hachimitsu single
3.) Girlie

4.) Ashita single
5.) Nakimushi single
6.) Chisana Marui Koujitsu
7.) Hanabi single
8.) Kabutomushi single
9.) Sakura no Toki single
10.) Sakura no Ki no Shita
11.) Boyfriend single
12.) Hatsukoi single
13.) Rosy single
14.) Natsufuku
15.) Oyasuminasai single
16.) Anata to Akushu single

There is only one song I do not know the actual name of, it's Niji-something, I think, but I can't quite track it down. If you go to download from me, it's called Track 9. And I have yet to find anyone else who has it that I could check the name of it. I don't know the actual Japanese title for the song "Nice Weather", either.
As far as her All Night Nippon stuff goes, yeah it's hella cool, but I've decided I don't need every single song she ever played on ANN. So I'm only going for those that are live versions of her other songs or some kind of collaboration with another artist.

I know this makes me sound like a total poser, but I really do like her indie stuff best. I mean, yeah, I was glad she released a remake of Rosy, because it's a great song and now everyone knows it not just the hardcore fans. But think about it. What are her best songs ever? Power of Love (which she also remade and put on the Sakura no Ki no Shita album), Sasenaide, and Hikari no Sasuashimoto. Those three and Rosy, I think, define what it is to be an aiko song.

'nice weather' should be 'iitenki' unless she used some strange colloquial expression...

and i totally agree that 'power of love', 'sasenaide', 'rosy' and 'hikari no sasu ashimoto' are 3 of her best songs...i'd add 'kabutomushi' in there too tho ^_^

i desperately need more of this woman's music in my life. she rules.

 Re:
It's not the kanji for itenki. It's some other phrase for weather.
