Rachael here!~

I actually had to go through my playlist to find something for this weeks question. So to answer it, my least favorite song would have to be "Utsukushi Sugi Te Beautiful Eyes" by NEWS. I generally hate most ballads, so I'm pretty sure I haven't even heard this song all the way through because after I hear the opener I skip it. Even when I first got the single it's on, as soon as I heard the opening part to the song I knew it didn't stand a chance. Sorry NEWS.

KAT-TUN is my favorite group because I like all of their songs. Even cheesy songs like No Matter Matter has me tapping my foot. If I hit shuffle the worst I can feel about a song is indifferent. Except for one... Real Face.

Yes I know it's their debut song and started their career and while hate is too strong a word I just don't like it. I don't like the song, I don't like Koki's rap, I don't like Jin's singing, I don't like the guitar solo, I don't like the video, and aside from the outdoor banter with Koki and Kame I don't like the making of video. Why, because all of it just screams processed and generic. It tries to be cool without rocking the boat. It tries to be edgy while being nonthreatening. I compare it to a job interview where you make sure to showcase how good you are but still stay on your best behavior because you want to make a good first impression.

I do acknowledge that I am in the minority here but I feel that I have been in the Jepcast family long enough to share this personal gripe and accept the backlash that I will receive lol.

Arashi is pretty much my favorite group and while I'm not super in love with all of their stuff, I generally like most of it. My least favorite though - a tie between Wish and Gift. Gift just starts out badly and doesn't recover from that. (MatsuJun whyyy? ...this is kind of a running theme) Wish is probably just over-exposure due to HanaDan but something about it just annoys me too.

That was ignoring solos. Including solos MatsuJun's W/ME is easily the worst. I mean, I was there fangirling like mad with everyone else for the first 10 minutes when he did the solo in concert. And then proceeded to die of secondhand embarrassment forever afterwards. The song is bad, he kinda sucks in the lives, and the "sexy" thing just hurts to watch now. (I swear I actually like MatsuJun! Really!)

And while it doesn't actually fit the question, I have to throw in my quick rant of least favorite JE song in general: Seishun Amigo. I know this one is overexposure because I was watching a lot of different music programs when the song was popular and it was just everywhere! constantly! And neither Kame or Yamapi are really great singers so they made my ears bleed a lot. For months. So I still kind of cringe when I hear it now.

My favorite group is Hey! Say! JUMP. I think their worst song is Hitomi no Screen. As for the reason, it's because it's WAAAAAAAY to Yamada-centric. I mean it was his drama but he was pretty much the only one who got solo lines. I still like the song but it's pretty much at the bottom of my list. It's just not as good as Mayonaka no Shadow Boy or Your Seed.

By the way, congratulations on your 150th episode ♥

Ah >.< Why did I ever suggest this? It's so hard TT.TT

For me, My favourite group is Arashi, but the thing is, I don't dislike many of their songs, at least not any I can really recall off teh top of my head, but at the same time, they have alot of songs, I'm kinda... Meh, about, if that makes any sense.

If I Like an Arashi song, I replay the frick out of it, and if it doesn't immediately catch my attention, I don't listen to ti again, really, so the song i dislike the most? that's really hard, because I actually don't LISTEN so songs i don't ADORE >.<

but as for the KIND of songs i don't like, I'm not really big on their slower stuff, Arashi does upbeat really well, dance pretty good as well, but if they aren't careful, hte slower stuff can come off as a little... bland >.< not often in singles, but in Albums and as B-sides... eh >.< particular songs i couldn't name, because i don't pay attention to them enough to be able to name them because I don' like them.

as or singles, I don't really like Monster or Trouble maker... they aren't slow, but i know their names... I couldn't tell you why, but I just skip past them whenever they come up on shuffle on my ipod. Its not like i can pick out a particular part i don't like, I just... Don't really care for them.

so yeah. essentially thats it.

I thought it would be hard, but when I thought about it... not so much.
