Momoiro Clover [+Z] MomoClo ももいろクローバーZ

A haunting version of Saraba, Itoshiki Kanashimi Tachi Yo (サラバ、愛しき悲しみたちよ, “Farewell, My Dear Sorrows”) (Music Box version by Orgel Sound):

My own MomoClo YouTube collection:

Like this ever needs an explanation. it’s MomoClo!

My particular favorite tends to be もリフだョ 全員集合(Morifu Dayo! Zenin Shuugou …because to me, it shows off their versatility.)

Why? They’re weird. Cute. Songs steeped in tradition. Able to parody themselves. Dance like P90X done for 2.5 hours straight, in costumes. The backing arrangements are exotic, symphonic and listenable on their own. The lyrics actually mean something (usually.)

Most uniquely – where else do you find passionate fans overseas in Paris, France able to totally support 5 teenage girls performing a capella due to a power-failure mid-concert? (Orange Note – オレンジノート)
