Top Japanese Spring Songs

Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share Japanese spring songs this time. Aside from Sakura songs that I’ve previously introduced, there are a bunch of spring songs still. Here goes.


Top Japanese Spring Songs

Hana Sumidagawa in spring (花 春のうららの隅田川)

Year released: 1900

One of standard songs from music class. Sumidagawa is a river running in Tokyo.

 

Haru ga Kita (春が来た)

Year released: 1910

Another music class song. This melody’s implanted into Japanese kids’ brains. Hehe.

 

Haru no Kogawa (春の小川)

Year released: 1912

A classic song. I am sure I sang it in a music class.

 

Haru Ichiban (春一番) by Candies (キャンディーズ)

Year released: 1976

A popular trio from the 70’s. Catchy & pop. I actually like this melody a lot. Very kayokyoku

 

Red Sweet Pea (赤いスイートピー) by Seiko Matsuda (松田聖子)

Year released:1980

A big hit from the 80’s by an idol singer. It is about farewell, I think.

 

Haru nanoni (春なのに) by Yoshie Kashiwabara (柏原芳恵)

Year released: 1983

Another idol singer form the 80’s (she seems more calm and mature). This minor melody sounds quite kayokyoku for me.

 

Haru yo Koi (春よ、来い) by Yumi Matsuoya (松任谷由実)

Year released: 1994

It was a theme song of one of NHK’s drama series called also Haru yo Koi. The piano phrase is unforgettable.

 

Hana Mizuki (ハナミズキ) by Hitotoyo (一青窈)

Year released: 2004

A hit song of early 2000’s. Her Taiwanese roots brings sort of melancholy feeling?

 

Sakurambo (さくらんぼ) by Ai Otsuka (大塚愛)

Year released: 2004

A semi-hit song from 2004. I didn’t think it’d last long but I still hear it from TV sometime.

 

Lastly

It’s interesting to list up spring songs like this and see differences between oldies and today’s music. Well, new stuff isn’t always better huh? Hope you find it cool.

See you around!

One thought on “Top Japanese Spring Songs

  1. Well, the winner here must be….. Haru nanoni! Another in the running was Haru yo Koi. I like the one they’ve implanted into Japanese kid’s brains too, Haru ga Kita. By the way, could we hear you sing Haru no Kogawa on this site? Everyone would like to hear that.

    Now on to a much more important matter: the loser. That would have to be Sakurambo, wouldn’t it? I certainly hope Japanese kids’ brains won’t be implanted with this one.
