Here ends my three-part list of favourites from each studio album. I am contemplating a favourite b-sides post but do I really want to put myself through that much pain having to decide on a mere few in number? Probably. I will consider it a little further.

I confess I've been putting off writing up this post for two reasons. Firstly, having to choose only two tracks and one single is going to be like a dentist visit. It will be the most horrendous and possibly painful experience and one I am not willingly putting myself through! Secondly, I'm losing the enthusiasm to blog because of so little in the way of feedback. I have been a writer/blogger for many years in a different forum (family history) and I guess after having done it for so long where I receive instant written feedback, I've been somewhat indulged and spoiled. With this LJ blog I've barely had any incentive to keep it up. But as somebody recently said to me, write for yourself first and foremost. Wise words indeed, and somewhat true for me (I still prefer feedback, it's just who I am).

ANYWAY.... moving on. Here is part three (I can put it off no longer, I will stop whinging):

Popcorn (2012)
Waiting For You
Cosmos

Face Down

Sore wa Yappari Kimi de Shita (Ninomiya Kazunari solo)

Love (2013)
P.A.R.A.D.O.X
Sayonara no Ato de

Calling

Yozora e no Tegami (Aiba Masaki solo)

The Digitalian (2014)
Wonderful
Hope in the Darkness

Bittersweet

Stay Gold (Matsumoto Jun solo)

Japonism (2015)
Miyabi Night
Japonesque

Sakura

Akatsuki (Ohno Satoshi solo)

Are You Happy? (2016)
Drive
Ups and Downs

Daylight

Mata kyo to onaji ashita ga kuru (Ninomiya Kazunari solo)

This was sooo hard! Please don't make me choose ever again!! The last three albums especially, as they are all so good and so precious and so amazing. All of their albums are in their own special way, but the last three are the most recent. Plus I became a fan when each one of them was released so I lived through all the up-to-the-minute hype with my Twitter friends and the Arashi fandom in general. It was really hard to choose but I went with the ones which make me the weakest when they come on my iPod shuffle. I tend not to skip them as many times and they have given me the widest smiles and inner pleasure.

Maybe I will try writing up a favourite b-sides post. If nothing else, it will be interesting for me to look back on in five years time hahaha

Woooo! You completed it!
Otsukaresama for doing this daunting task. xD
Maybe I'll write up my list too one of these days when things slow down over here, lol.

Anyway, I totally just read back all three posts while making a playlist of all the songs mentioned. Now I have a "Debby's Favorites" playlist on my iTunes. :P
Seems you're into some of the quite energetic, funky songs, ne? And I'm also pleasantly surprised to count three Ohno solos there. :3

Wahhh, hontouni arigatou! I can't begin to convey how much your comment means to me, I am really touched that you would make a special playlist for yourself using my favourite songs. You keep making me blub lately and this is no exception. Thank you for being so sweet and kind, and for going that extra mile to cheer me up and lighten my mood. Did you notice I mentioned you again, in this post? The "wise words" you told me not too long ago. I took them to heart, as I do the many things you say. Thank you so much :)

Teehee~ sorry for making you blub :P
I recently found out that looking at other people's Arashi playlists or lists of important/favorite/special Arashi songs is SO FUN. You get to re-experience the music through a different perspective. :D
And yup, I noticed it and my heart went all *kyuuuuuun* when I read it. :')))
