PART I of V:
The Introduction

Dear Participants,

As each of you well know, this message board exists for one purpose and one purpose only: To spread awareness of, and appreciation for, WINK, the official Japanese pop group of MormonDiscussions.com. Alas, however, after much contemplation I've decided that it's time to stop avoiding the inevitable and finally admit that the time has come to make a sea change by, yes, updating our official Japanese pop (a.k.a. “J-pop”) group to a newer act. This is because another group has since risen to the top and actually beaten out WINK's record for length of time producing consistent hits. . . not to mention the sad but unavoidable fact that WINK has been defunct for over 20 years.

Although WINK remained solvent for an unprecedented 8-year run, this new group has been popular and relevant for a full 14 years so far and shows no sign of stopping or slowing down. In fact, they did their third North American tour in 2019, hitting New York, Toronto, Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, San Jose, and Los Angeles (in that order). They've also performed in Cannes, Cologne, Hong Kong, London, Paris, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, and Taiwan, along with every major city in their home country of Japan, of course.

Without further ado, I now present to you:

PERFUME, our new official Japanese electro-pop group of MormonDiscussions.com!!

So, who are Perfume? They consist of three members. From oldest to youngest:

  • NŌCCHI, real name "Äyänō Ōmōtō." Short hair, parted down the middle. Usually always wearing shorts. Birthdate: September 20, 1988.
  • KASHIYUKA, real name "Yūkä Käshinō." Long hair and bangs. Usually always wearing a skirt. Birthdate: December 23, 1988.
  • A-CHAN (rhymes with "Ah Sean"), real name "Äyäkä Nishiwäki." Hairstyle varies, but often curled somewhat and in a pony tail. Usually always wearing a slightly longer skirt. Birthdate: February 15, 1989. She was the brains behind the formation of the group and the recruiter of its other members. Combined with the fact that she's the most talkative and outgoing of the three, she’s sort of the leader and spokeswoman by default.

Perfume formed back in 2000 when they were pre-teens and students at Hiroshima's School of the Performing Arts. In 2003 they moved to Tokyo to follow their dreams, then experienced their national debut in 2005—all when they were still minors, amazingly enough. And the rest is history that, fortunately for all of us, is still being written.

Now, on to the music. The following is a compilation of brief samples of 90 of their songs and/or videos. They aren’t in any particular order, unfortunately, but this will whet your appetite for more and hopefully yield one or more that appeal to you:

PART II of V:
The Music

Here are the corresponding full songs from each clip at the above link, in the same order in which the clips were arranged. This should make it a little easier to find whichever one(s) caught your fancy.

I tried to get the actual music video whenever one was available. Sometimes they simply didn’t make a corresponding video, of course, in which case I looked for some fan-made video that featured movement of some sort rather than a static image. Other times I used concert footage, but never fear; Japanese concerts typically spare no expense to put on the most impressive spectacle humanly possible. Plus they go to great pains to get the sound as close to the original as possible. Also, in my opinion, sometimes the concert footage is actually better than the album version and I indicate when it happens.

Although I think nearly all of these songs are good, I label some “BETTER” if they’re, uh, better than usual, “VERY GOOD” if they stand out from the rest even more, and “EXCELLENT” if they are must-listens or among my personal favorites. Your opinions may vary, of course, so definitely sample as many of them as you can. I also added translations of the non-English titles along with commentary when I think it’s merited.

Here they are:

  1. Tokyo Girl Their single and video released on February 28, 2017.
  2. My Color A fan-made video using clips from the Japan Music Video Awards 2012 (1-minute commercial), linked below.
  3. レーザービーム (“Laser Beam”) An alternate version of this video, wherein they get into a fight with a polar bear, is here.
  4. 透明人間 ("Invisible Man") Subtitled!
  5. リニアモーターガール (“Linear Motor Girl”) I’m pretty sure this is the one that catapulted them into the bigtime.
  6. Atmospheric Entry EXCELLENT Perfume allowed the Uniqlo company to adapt this instrumental into three 30-second commercials for its Heattech winter clothing line. Another enterprising YouTuber combined them into one video, which is far better than the static version (available here), in my opinion.
  7. Hurly Burly
  8. シークレットシークレット (“Secret Secret”) EXCELLENT
  9. Have a Stroll Subtitled!
  10. パーフェクトスター・パーフェクトスタイル (“Perfect Star, Perfect Style”)
  11. Pick Me Up BETTER By way of trivia, the guys at the beginning are the American group "OK Go," who collaborated with Perfume for the single "I Don't Understand You," at #71, below. OK Go returned the favor by putting Perfume in the first few seconds of their video "I Won't Let You Down."
  12. Cling Cling
  13. Enter the Sphere EXCELLENT A crowd-rousing mega-anthem. It doesn’t really work in any format but concert footage, so here it is. The sort of song you’d play at full blast for an army before sending it into battle.
  14. Night Flight
  15. 宝石の雨 ("Rain of Jewels") Contains lots of behind-the-scenes clips.
  16. コンピューターシティ (“Computer City”)
  17. Voice BETTER
  18. Flash
  19. Take Off A two-minute intro. to something else (I'm not sure what), but pretty cool nonetheless.
  20. Love the World
  21. Navigate The two-minute instrumental introduction to their "Cosmic Explorer" album.
  22. Cosmic Explorer VERY GOOD. It's a fan-made video; a mash-up of probably all their other videos as of June 2016, making it quite awesome to behold. Subtitled!
  23. ポイント (“Point”) The video in the background is a compilation of behind-the-scenes takes and clips of them from T.V. and commercials. I daresay the video is better than the song.
  24. 微かなカオリ (“Delicate Fragrance”)
  25. Relax in the City Ironically, they’re never in the city at any point in the video.
  26. Star Train
  27. Baby Face A static image, but it's the best I can do.
  28. Miracle Worker Another static kaleidescopic image.
  29. Next Stage with YOU
  30. Lovefool One of their thankfully very few covers. I very much dislike it when bands do this, so I’m glad Perfume almost never does.
  31. Clockwork BETTER Concert footage. Subtitled!
  32. Seventh Heaven
  33. Butterfly EXCELLENT This is a video that they put on the jumbotrons during the intermissions of one particular concert tour.
  34. I still love U VERY GOOD This is one of the rare videos in which they don’t dance. FUN FACT: During this particular take, at the 3:10 mark, the producers sneak up and tickle the girls’ feet unmercifully, off-camera and entirely unrehearsed. It’s quite funny to watch them try their hardest (and often fail!) to maintain poker faces and stay in character in spite of it. Someone must have a good sense of humor, ‘cause that was the take they actually use in this video! Very funny stuff. If you'd like to watch an English-subtitled concert version, wherein you'll see how good the lyrics are, it's here.
  35. Baby Cruising Love
  36. Twinkle Snow Powdery Snow
  37. Zero Gravity One of their older offerings.
  38. チョコレイト・ディスコ (“Chocolate Disco”)
  39. 恋は前傾姿勢 (“Love is a Forward Approach“ [?]) I could be quite wrong on the translation. More concert footage, but there wasn’t any decent alternative.
  40. Sweet Refrain One of the only times that Kashiyuka’s hair is in a pony tail and not Ä -chan’s. A very well-made video.
  41. 願い (“Wish”) Another slow song, if you like those (or even if you don’t, I guess).
  42. ワンルーム・ディスコ (“One Room Disco”) BETTER Subtitled concert footage is here.
  43. Puppy love Concert footage, but the audio is quite good.
  44. Speed of Sound It's hard to describe this one.
  45. 23:30 More like lounge music, but a lot of candid "home footage" is overlaid on it, so that's cool.
  46. ナチュラルに恋して (“Naturally Love”; using “love” as a verb, not a noun) BETTER
  47. Fake It BETTER, thanks to the chorus.
  48. Dream Land Concert footage, but the audio is very good. Their costumes are a sight to behold, too. Subtitled!
  49. Teleportation This is rather hard to categorize; it must've been a placeholder of sorts during their third concert tour (to promote their album "JPN").
  50. Spring of Life VERY GOOD By way of trivia, this is the very first song and video of theirs that I discovered. I thought it was cool, so I bookmarked it, then searched on their name for more, and the rest is, . . . well, these posts you’re reading.
  51. Sleeping Beauty EXCELLENT Another video specifically for the jumbotron during intermissions at one tour or another. Not only is the song itself fantastic, but it’s one of their best actual videos—or at least their most technologically advanced, in my opinion.
  52. Party Maker EXCELLENT A rousing crowd anthem of similar epic-ness as "Enter the Sphere," above. You can see just what an intense concert experience they give their audience.
  53. Display BETTER One of their newest singles. A rather interesting video featuring multi-footage simultaneous overlays. Concert footage is here.
  54. Dream Fighter
  55. 575
  56. Edge VERY GOOD This is concert footage. Although there’s an album version out there, this one is MUCH better, as you’ll definitely agree when you click the link. Clocking in at 8:02, it may be their longest song, but it’s definitely worth the time.
  57. ポリリズム (“Polyrhythm”) Their original breakout hit; the one that started it all and cemented their future.
  58. ねぇ (“Hey”) EXCELLENT The camera work and the girls’ fancy footwork make this an essentially perfect video. More importantly, I love the song itself so much that I’ve been known to listen to this over and over.
  59. 不自然なガール (“Unnatural Girl”)
  60. The Best Thing A fan-made video using footage from "What Is Disco?", below.
  61. Plastic Smile BETTER Subtitled concert footage is here.
  62. Tokimeki Lights A fan made video that features quite a bit of rare footage--sort of like with Hurly Burly, above--some of it in the United States. Worth watching.
  63. 未来のミュージアム (“Museum of the Future”) VERY GOOD
  64. ふりかえるといるよ ("Look back and I'll be there")
  65. Magic of Love BETTER A cool video.
  66. コンピューター ドライビング (“Computer Driving”) Another static image, but the sound quality is better than the concert footage I found (which is here if you’re curious).
  67. Handyman VERY GOOD Subtitled! It's concert footage, so the bass isn't as distinguishable as in the album version, but their dance moves in this one are among their very best, in my opinion.
  68. マカロニ (“Macaroni”) One of their few bona-fide slow songs. Which is a good thing, since in my experience other Japanese and Korean groups often rely on slow slongs as “filler” to increase their albums’ song count. Not that this counts as one of those, of course.
  69. Hold Your Hand A mostly crowdsourced video. . . which is a unique approach.
  70. Spending All My Time EXCELLENT Almost entirely in English, so that should help. Even so, an extremely good song in its own right.
  71. I Don't Understand You This is a collaboration with the American all-male group "OK Go," so it's a noticeable departure from their usual style. Almost entirely in English.
  72. スパイス (“Spice”)
  73. エレクトロ・ワールド (“ElectroWorld”)
  74. Take Me Take Me
  75. 1mm
  76. Kiss and Music
  77. いじわるなハロー (“Cruel Hello”) BETTER Concert footage, but quite well executed.
  78. The Opening A brief instrumental musical intro. to their third album and a radical departure from their usual style.
  79. 時の針 Literally "needle of time," but most likely their way of saying "hand of a clock." A departure from their usual electropop, this sounds akin to a lullaby by which you'd sing a child to sleep.
  80. ファンデーション ("Foundation") The name doesn't refer to the base of a building; it refers to fixing one's makeup to obscure the tears brought on from a break-up.
  81. Game BETTER Concert footage, but they use replica lightsabers partway through, so they’re forgiven.
  82. 心のスポーツ (“Sports of the Heart”) A fan-made video consisting of clips from their other videos, but it’s the best I could do.
  83. セラミックガール (“Ceramic Girl”)
  84. Perfume Concert footage of their earlier eponymous song, revisited in their adulthood. Subtitled! The album version, which has a very distinct "Mario Brothers" vibe to it but is incredibly energetic and upbeat, is here.
  85. Story Another introduction of sorts.
  86. イミテーションワールド ("Imitation World") One of their earliest major singles.
  87. だいじょばない (“I’m not Okay”) The album version overlaid on concert footage.
  88. Wonder 2
  89. コミュニケーション (“Communication”) BETTER I really dig their dance moves in this one.
  90. Glitter I think I like their outfits in this one the best.

PART III of V:
The Early Years

These are their songs--and the accompanying videos, where available--from their much earlier, pre-Tokyo days (mostly). They weren't sampled in the introductory video in the first post and thus aren't in the list above. You can tell by their ages just how long they've been performing together.

  1. OMAJINAI★ペロリ (“Good Luck Charm ★ _____”; I don’t know what “ペロリ” means and neither does the dictionary.) This had to be their first actual single, since it was released only a year after they formed. Still, not bad at all for a trio their age.
  2. 彼氏募集中 (“I’m Looking for a Boyfriend“) This must have been filmed at their junior high talent show. FUN FACT: They revisited this song during a concert in their adulthood, well over a decade later, duplicating the exact same dance moves as before. It’s cute seeing them briefly resurrect their original “style,” such as it was. You can see it here.
  3. シークレットメッセージ ("Secret Message") This must've been performed at a local mall when they were no older than, say, 13.
  4. カウンターアトラクション (“Counter Attraction“) EXCELLENT Although this is the album version, it’s overlaid on footage of what I think was their first bona-fide concert, albeit a local one. The bells give it an almost Christmas-y feel. The bass along with their voices makes for a near-perfect combination. This is another one I can listen to over and over. WARNING: The chorus is extremely catchy. Don’t be surprised if you find it stuck it in your head for the next day or so.
  5. スーパージェットシューズ ("Super Jet Shoes") Recorded at the same concert as "Counter Attraction," immediately above. Not at all bad for performers their age (at the time).
  6. スウィートドーナッツ (“Sweet Donuts”) Obviously an extremely early single of theirs. Upbeat and fun.
  7. モノクロームエフェクト (“Monochrome Effect”) FUN FACT: This song was sampled in the May the Best Stan Win episode of American Dad! that aired February 14, 2010.
  8. エレベーター (“Elevator”)
  9. おいしいレシピ (“Delicious Recipe”) BETTER Yet a third video from the magical concert that gave us the videos to "Counter Attraction" and "Super Jet Shoes," above.
  10. ビタミンドロップ (“Vitamin Drop”)
  11. アキハバラブ (“Akihaba Love”) VERY GOOD
  12. 引力 ("Gravity") This was performed in an Apple store, of all places, back in August of 2006. What a difference 12 years makes, eh?
  13. 伝説のスタフィー3 ("The Legend of Stafy III") Their minute-long performance during the closing credits of the Game Boy game of the same name. To say that they've, uh, advanced a bit since this would be an extreme understatement.
  14. キューティーハニー ("Cutie Honey") an extremely rare piece, performed when they were only 16. The video unfortunately cuts out a bit prematurely.

PART IV of V:
The Bonus Goodness

This is their music used during concerts, commercials, and nowhere else--much of it exceptionally good--so if you weren’t impressed enough with the above offerings, perhaps there's something here that will finally convert you to fan-dom or otherwise bring you into Perfume world.

In addition, more singles are bound to be released in the future, so they will be posted here as they are released.

  1. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 EXCELLENT The name refers to the fact that they’d released 11 official singles by that time and the fact that they were beginning their 11th year together as a group. This link consists of a jumbotron video, followed by an introduction (as though one was even necessary) of the members, followed by performance art-esque routines by each of them individually, followed by a unified performance. This clip features music that wasn’t to be had anywhere else but in this concert. It’s rather long, but definitely worth it.
  2. Episode 0 VERY GOOD Pure audio played before a concert got started. No actual singing, but it's still pretty darn cool.
  3. ジェニーはご機嫌ななめ (“Jenny’s in a Bad Mood”) VERY GOOD Another concert but with crowd participation that I think makes this link better than the album version. The crowd is shouting out each singer’s name after she sings a line. Subtitled!
  4. Butterfly + Sleeping Beauty, MASHUP VERY GOOD Astute listeners may have noticed how similar the songs “Butterfly” and “Sleeping Beauty” (both linked above) are to each other. An enterprising YouTube uploader did as well and overlaid one on top of the other and, fortunately for us, provided it for our listening pleasure. It works surprisingly well, believe it or not.
  5. What is Disco? A jumbotron video played during a concert intermission.
  6. Motion Graphics Life Performance in Japan The introductory performance to their Hiroshima (their hometown) concert of April 01, 2012. I really dig their costuming in this one.
  7. Perfumeの最初の掟 ("The First Rules of Perfume") BETTER I don't know what this is from, but it sounds like the intro. to something else. Still, if you can crank the bass up, it's pretty catchy.
  8. Japan Music Video Awards 2012 (1-minute commercial) Hopefully the title is descriptive enough. Their outfits are SWEET. Samples of this were used by a fan to create the artificial video for "My Color," linked above. HIGHLIGHT: When you watch this, you'll be shocked and amazed by how well they can hold their balance.
  9. If You Wanna Their single from September 05, 2017. A departure from their typical style, it incorporates elements of the "future bass" genre.
  10. 無限未来 ("Infinite Future") Their single that dropped on March 19, 2018. For trivia purposes, the video was filmed on Guam.
  11. Fusion More of a performance than a song, its name refers to the fact that it was filmed at precisely the same time, but at different locations around the globe--A-chan in Tokyo at 21:01:39 local time, Kashiyuka in London at 12:01:39 local time, and Nocchi in New York at 07:01:39 local time. The footage was then spliced together in rotating and interlocking patterns to create a single video. Cool concept, eh?
  12. Everyday The "B" side to their "If You Wanna" single, above. Cute & adorable.
  13. Let Me Know Another single from their album "Future Pop" which released on August 15, 2018.
  14. Future Pop The eponymous single from the album of the same name. Showcasing their never-ending creativity, this video hybridizes animation with live-action, creating a VERY cool effect. You'll love it!
  15. Tiny Baby Another selection from "Future Pop."
  16. ナナナナナイロ ("seven-seven-seven-seven-seven colors;" a reference to the number of colors in a rainbow.)

PART V of V:
The Epilogue

Whew! This series of posts took MANY hours to prepare, so I hope you’ll ensure the time didn’t go to waste by at least listening to the first link in the background while you go about your business, followed by sampling a few of the videos in the lists of links.

Now, I fully realize that adopting a new official J-pop group like this is an unprecedented step, since we adopted WINK nearly 10 years ago and they’re firmly in our hearts and souls. I also realize that such a radical move will not escape without a good measure of controversy and perhaps even hurt feelings among many of you. Even so, I believe that this move celebrates and commemorates MormonDiscussions.com entering into its adulthood—or maybe MormonDiscussions.com entering into adulthood celebrates and commemorates this move. (Which came first, the chicken or the egg?) But controversy aside, hopefully my links and descriptions will convince you that this extraordinary step of adopting a new Japanese electropop group—Perfume—was not just a good decision, but the right decision.

So, everybody, Welcome to PERFUME WORLD!

Dr. Shades,

You have my word that when I listen to Japanese electropop, I will only listen to PERFUME.

Have a great year!

Acknowledging a certain charm you have, you are still a very strange person, Shades.
