My very first JPOP CD I ever received was Matsuda Seiko's It's Style '95, back in 1995. My friend's girlfriend is a VIP within the McDonald's Corporate structure, and she flies back and forth between Hawaii and Japan. She's also made quite a number of contacts with the Japanese because of her many trips.

For my birthday that year, she invited me to a party in Honolulu when she heard what a fanatic I was about Japanese women. And at the party was Seiko-chan herself!!! I shook her hand and told her I idolized her and like listening to her music. She then gave me her latest CD and signed it for me. Totally cool moment!!!!!

My first Sakai Noriko CD was 10 SONGS, also released in 1995. I had to mention that so Noriko-chan wouldn't be jelous of Seiko-chan. Smile

My first exposure to jpop was through anime. I think it must of been Ranma 1/2 way back in 1992.

The first jpop artist that I got to know was Amuro Namie. She was the jpop queen back then.

First time I heard J-Pop was when I borrowed Ayu's album A Song for XX (i think that's the title... so long ago) from a friend in school. Heard it and forget. (gomen to all Ayu fans, I realise she's pretty good now Sweat ) Some where along the line came Lion Heart by Smap and some Kinki Kids songs introduced by another friend when we went on a study trip overseas.

Nothing really hit hard until I heard Hirai Ken's Kiss of Life on the radio and from then on I listened to music from Hikki, Chemistry, Gospellers and of course Hirai Ken. Now I even listen to songs by the Johnny's artistes (sounds like relapse Sweat )

I supposed Ayu's songs defined J-Pop for me. She's really famous in Asian c'tries and people knew who she is even though they don't really know what J-Pop is (like me then...)

First time I actually started listening was after Heaven's Coins with Noriko Sakai's Aoi Usagi. Then there was Miho Nakayama and Mirai e no Present from Oishii Kankei. Since then I've started listening to more JPOP artists.

Funny thing is that I used to hate it when my parents watched Japanese TV every Saturday night. (Those of you from the San Francisco Bay Area will know that we only get Japanese TV on Saturday and Sunday nights.) Another memory was having to sit through those New Year's Specials where all the singers from the past and present sing on two teams.

Now, I can't wait for every New Year's and of course every Sunday night of Hey Hey Hey.

I'll form a new topic, and I'll list old songs, typically those older 20 to 30 yrs old would know, and I'll go more earlier back into what usually grandparents in Japan listen back then~


On a side note, arashinokoto said nakayama miho, that's quite old, and that's what i'm goin' to list, her songs are more in 1980's and ithink late 1970's; Wow, some of you mentioned chage & aska, they started in 1970's.

I'll come back to share more early 1990's my experience; as said, I'll form a new topic mentioned above.

Guys, you can share more of your experience~so others can find to listen too~!

Man, seeing that chage and aska's "say yes" is a classic must mean I'm getting old, being that was the time I satrted listening to Jppop. I can also include Dreams Come True (doricomu), SPEED, Toshinobu Kobota, and Late 90's Ayu.

don't really have any concept of when i started listening to it and realizing that it was jpop...it was just always around me, i guess...my older cousins that came over from taiwan were listening to stuff like chage & aska, kuwata band, kome kome club, etc...

then when i was in japan, my host sister got me into a variety of stuff like ozaki yutaka, X-japan, princess princess, lindberg, tube, etc....

and, of course, there was that horrible anime period of my life...best jpop outcome of that period was anzen chitai (who did a bunch of songs for maison ikkoku)...

and my grandmother was *really* into hibari (enka singer)... ^_^;;;
