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.)

Try a read of this wiki article covering just a smattering of this group’s unique traits:

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)

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

Happy! Go! Lucky!

I’ve been thinking lately about where I would place Momoclo’s songs in a ranking, what ones do I love the most, and why.

Some of the inspiration for this comes from the recent news of Momoiro Clover Z being the group chosen to sing the theme song for the new Sailor Moon series in 2013.  Suddenly Momoclo’s videos on youtube were blowing up with english comments, and let’s just say not everyone seems as excited as I am about it…   But even I have to admit that if my first exposure to the group was a rather sloppy live cover of Moonlight Densetsu, I might not have been too happy either!

I don’t expect Momoclo to appeal to everyone, in fact, their strangeness is one of the things I like most, and that very thing may be what drives some away.  But, I’m sure there are some people out there…
