MMmonth: My favorite songs

MMmonth will be longer than a month! I have picked up a new study and I am working hard, so post will be slow but coming! Today we will be looking through my iTunes list to see which Morning Musume songs are my top 15 of songs(album and singles)! The number behind the song title, is the amount iTunes says I have been listening to the song! Are you ready?
Number 15 Fantasy ga Hajimaru (43) Ah, yes I can totally adore this song! When this album was released I got addicted to this song and Eri's song. I wonder if that one will be in the list.. I am a big fan of Sayumi's voice in this song and it goes so well with Ai-chan's and Eri's vocals. In my opinion this song showcases Ai-chan's vocal abilities the best of any Momusu song. That end note still makes me shiver!
Number 14 What is Love? (45) I am really suprised What is Love? made it into this list! I really like the song, but I never actually put it on. This does explain why my mother was singing it while doing laundry…

Not even a year ago, a new generation was introduced to us! Morning Musume '16 had been searching for their 13th generation since January 2016. Let's get back into the history of one of our newest generations! After the graduation of Sayashi Riho, Morning Musume opened up new auditions and searched for new members. Yet in May it was announced that there were no winners and that the auditions would be opened again.  However, on the 23th of november it was announced that again no winners were found through the auditions and winners would be picked from the Hello!pro kenshuusei. This led to a lot of speculation about who would be winning and how many girls would be joining Morning Musume.  On the 12th of december we got the results: Name: Kaga Kaede Nickname: Kaedii Birthday: November 30, 1999 From: Tokyo Age: 17 Color: Italian Red Was a Hello!Pro Kenshuusei since 2012 Name: Yokoyama Reina  Nickname: Yokoyan Birthday:Febuary 10, 2001 From: Saitama Age: 16 (then:15) Color: Golden Yellow Partic…

They are the generation that has currently stayed togheter for the longest of all generations. Let's take a step back into history! Morning Musume announced they would be looking for their 10th generation members in the spring of 2011. They had just gained 4 new members at the beginning of that year through the 9th generation auditions and leader Takahashi Ai had announced her graduation for that fall. Morning Musume 10ki member "Genki Jirushi" auditions closed their applications in July of that year and it was announced that girls who auditioned could also audition for S/mileage, yet they could only join one group.  Quite a lot of, now, well known names participated in the third round of the audition: Miyazaki Yuka, Hamaura Ayano, Taguchi Natsumi, Fuji Rio, Ogawa Rena and Makino Maria, to name a few.  Only 10 girls were choosen to participate in t…
