In case you were previously unaware, there exists something called J-Pop in this world – and it is awesome.
Whether you prefer the catchy tunes, brightly colored music videos, synchronized dancing, or the lyrics that you can't quite understand (I don't think I have attained much readership in Japan thus far), J-Pop has something for everyone.
Even if somehow you do not enjoy the music, the music videos (especially Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's (songs 3, 8, and 9 below)) are incredibly entertaining.
The following list (and subsequent playlist (and yes, the songs listed are in order of the playlist)) is a quick taste of the J-Pop world, and hopefully it will provide you with the inspiration necessary to revamp your musical selection.
