X: Haha, fair enough question. I'll have to go a bit in depth.
I've given a few Morning Musume songs a listen, and just can't enjoy them.
I find alot of J-Pop (Buono for example, and this song) have alot of rock/alt to them. Their songs usually have guitars, bass guitar, and drums + Japanese girls singing. I sort of find it to be western rock/alt music with a Japanese touch and more happiness. You know that I prefer rock/alt, so that should explain that. With (for example) Buono songs, I sometimes find myself thinking "what if an American rock musician sang over this? People would just think it's a normal rock/alt song, wouldn't they?"
As for not liking Morning Musume, I don't like much western pop music. I find that Morning Musume are just Japanese girls singing over the same type of music that (for example) Lady Gaga would. I go to a certain site to find new Japanese music, and I always click on whatever new song Morning Musume has out to see if I like it due to this site! But it just seems like our pop music with Japanese lyrics, to me.
In which case, I totally understand why you're a fan. You like pop music alot, and Japanese girls usually make everything better
"Japanese girls usually make everything better " I can agree with that!
Anyway, either you've been spying my chart somewhere, or you're guessing? I do love pop music a lot, that's true. But certainly not Britney, Pink, Enrique Iglesias, Lady Gaga, and the whole of those popular acts. The way I see it, pop music in the west, is what happens when pop artist keep associating with urban and dance styles, and I hate that. In Japan, I see their kind of pop, or at least the artist at hand, Morning Musume, to be pop in a purest form. Well... maybe not so much in the last few singles lol And I love those girls so there! LOL!
