I love Buono. I like all their songs, and as far as J-Pop goes, they were so unique. That is why I am going to list ten songs, my top six, TheBetterCup’s two, their very first song, and their very last. I find them better than most J-pop because it has less of the annoying pop music with nonsensical lyrics and more rockish. They did not need to constantly change their image and always had a live band. I recommend checking out all their songs, but since that is a little to much to ask, here is just a few.
If you do not know them, Buono is a Hello! Project unit consisting of three members (Momoko Tsugunaga, Miyabi Natsuyaki, and Airi Suzuki) all of whom come from other groups. The group was formed to create songs for a popular anime called Shugo! Chara. Yet, they received so much success that they continued to exist after the end of the anime.
In 2012, they released their latest album, and has released nothing since then. No one is sure if they are officially disbanded or not, but they have been removed from the Hello! Project website. It is a little disappointing, but each of the girls seem busy and devoted to each of the primary groups (Berryz Koubou and C-ute).
They personally mean a lot to me. They were my age, they were my childhood, and i emulated them. I really liked them, and really hope that they are not done. I do not plan on giving an explanation for all the videos, but maybe some information. The songs are in no particular order
