What is your favorite song by Ayumi Hamasaki ?

Personally, only "Voyage" is moving enough to bring tears to my eyes - especially watching the video clip, which I think is also her best and most original. My 3 best after that are "Free & Easy", "Depend on You" and "Boys & Girls". "Evolution" and "I am" come next.

I totally agree about Voyage. It's a very moving song. I dunno, she's had so many singles that I've liked, that I don't know which one is my favorite.

Voted for Evolution... guitars! Good! I also like Unite, which is from that same album. Depend on you was the first i heard from Ayumi, so that also holds a special place in my heart.

I voted for Hanabi. If you listen to the lyrics, it's such a sad and moving song. Also, I downloaded a live clip of her singing that song, and she gets so emotional while singing it; I know that song came from the heart. It's just beautiful to me.. it made me cry. :o

where did you get the live clip?

My friend downloaded it; I'm pretty sure she got it off of Kazaa. If you want to look for the clip, it was titled "Ayumi Hamasaki - July 21st+Hanabi" :happy:

I agree with "Voyage," though I have to say that I also truly like "Trauma" and "Surreal."

I voted for M because it's probably my favorite one up there right now. Were Endless Sorrow and Ever Free up there I'd have a real problem deciding, though.

I go for Surreal. I've been listening to that for so long and I'm still not bored to it. :happy:

a question to all ayu fans.
what is so good abt her music that she is such a rage?

i hear a good breadth of j-music, oldies and new ones, and some lyrics of hers are good, but basically, doesn't she have a strong, extremely nasal whiny voice? how can melody emanate from the nose?
And at high pitch, doesn't her voice turn into an irritating shriek? (just listen to the last lines of 'a song for XX', u will know what I mean)
Where is the power and depth in her voice characterestic of good singers?

Pray tell me whats good about the way she sings?
Atleast, Hikki has a solid voice she can boast of!

Or is it _just_ Ayu's looks and stylish attire which is carrying her on?

Hardcore ayu fans may be peeved, but I fail to find anything in her voice
that justifies her position, Yes, the music may be good, but that alone cannot make a singer great!

I am sorry if someone is hurt, but just my own opinion.

ur pretty right..some of her songs were out of tunes. but i still like her as a singer and an actresses overall..somebody just hav to tell her to fix up the way she sings

Let me reply your question, kinjo:

First of all, no one should be hurt because of someone else's opinions. So don't worry, if someone does get hurt, it's their own fault. I appreciate your honest opinion and now I'll share mine. ;)

As for me, I don't think her looks and style are important. Actually, I don't even need to see her in music videos or such in order to like her songs. I'm female, so maybe that's the reason... but still.

Her songs are really good! She's kinda the most mainstream singer I listen to. And as for the nasal voice, I think that's the best part! Really! It's so different and if fits to her songs. But you're somewhat right about some songs, she sings some parts oddly, but most of the time I just like her voice. I think the refrain in "Free & Easy" (konna, konna yogoreta machi de...) part really makes her voice sound good.

I also like Hikki, but her voice is so different. Different in a good way, too. I think Ayumi is better singer than Hikki, though.

I like Ayu's song "M" probably the best. The song it really pretty, and I just like it. I dunno, I'm strange like that. I really like most of her songs, so it's hard to just choose one.

Here are some of my favorites...

Evolution:
Starts very slow...and then it becomes something you just nod you head to. Awesome!

Vogue:
Worldly beat, textbook.

To Be:
Smooth, silky, refreshing like soy.

Voyage:
Wonderful tune.

Seasons:
Another powerful ballad.

Daybreak:
Wonder how a black college marching band would play this one...down and dirty! But in a clean way. :evil:

ok.. no one is better than Hikki. As far as looks wise, Ayu and Hikki are on opposite ends of the spectrum. Both of their songs are great, but I like Hikki's consistency. Ayu makes billions of decent songs, and once and a while they're spectacular in every aspect of music composition.

I was torn between Dearest and Evolution, but I ultimately went with Evolution because Ayu is the Queen of techno & techno remixes; and that song just happens to be a bit of both.

I agree with you, her voice to squeaky and nasal. People say ayumi voice improved I dont think it did, still cracks and squeaks. She will never be a great singer.I like hikki or namie voice they are good singers..

think Ayumi is better singer than Hikki, though


No way ayumi is better singer then Hikki. Hikki dont make me cringe when she sings like ayumi.

I like evolution best. Not very original, but that's just the way it is :D

And who is Hikki? I can't seem to finf any music of hers :(

Hikki is short for Utada Hikaru, who's a really good singer IMO. I prefer her music a lot more to Ayumi's, not only because I like her voice more but just cos I like Hikki's style more. But that said, I still really like some of Ayu's songs, namely Evolution, To Be and Love (Refrain). Rainbow's not bad either.

I also think that Ayumi's voice sounds a lot better in the lower register, like in the beginning of Rainbow. When she sings the high notes she just goes all nasally as some other people said already.

Why are pple like Evolution??? that song is ok but not really comparable to her elder songs in my opinion. i like the pv though.. she looks cute in it

ayumi is great. most of her songs are so addicting. it is true, she is very fasionable which is a plus but i like her voice and her music as well. i am just wondering, where is rainbow on the list? it's such an awesome song!

oh and about utada hikaru...i think she is a little too r&b-ish for my taste which is why i dont like her as much as miss ayumi. but hikki is a great singer. can't deny that. but still, i like ayumi much better...i dont think i could buy any of hikki's albums cos' i dont like as many of her songs...first love is awesome but then i cant really thing of another song i like of hers as much (maybe SAKURA drops but thats it). with ayumi, i can think of so many i like...evolution, rainbow, free and easy, powder snow, M, dearest, who?, i am, no more words, endless sorrow, ect ect. and thats only off the top of my head ^^;;; yeah =P
