Music Monday: August 12 Edition

In case you somehow missed it, Hatsune Miku is kind of a big deal. She’s one of Japan biggest pop stars, and the kicker is: she’s not even real! But that hasn’t stopped fans around the globe from falling in love with her. Needless to say, when the Vocaloid craze began in the Land of the Rising Sun some years back, audiences went crazy for the face synonymous with the whole movement, Hatsune Miku. Since her debut, Miku has released a slew of great hits. While her music is decidedly J-pop, it’s hard not to like her catchy melodies and entrancing rhythms. To sum up the Vocaloid experience, and all of Miku’s songs really, the word “fun” comes immediately to mind. Then again, so does delightful, lighthearted and hook-y as all get out.

With the long list of entries, however, there is one that we have been coming back to often lately. Thus, we want to initiate the first ever Music Monday with one of our favorite Miku songs: Tell Your World. This piece is a catchy jam that will have folks bobbing their heads and tapping their feet. It’s hard not to love the tune, actually — it’s expertly written with hooks galore. The chrous is especially memorable. So here it is, ladies and gents: our first Music Monday installment.

Of course, this is only what we’re listening to. What is on your playlist on this lovely Music Monday? Sound off in the comments section below!
