These women are covering their own song!

K-On! Let's Go! concert, Yokohama, 30th December 2009.

The women are the seiyuu (voice actresses) for the anime K-On! in their roles as Hokago Tea Time band.

The song is basic although pleasant in a bubblegum sort of way and the level of musicianship not very good. What is interesting is that they had never played a musical instrument until a month or two before the concert which was held as their way of saying farewell to their fans at the conclusion of the series. So. Each actress had to take a crash course. For only a small portion of the concert, there was a backing band behind a scrim for the solo songs. Otherwise, everything was live; performed by the women. No pre-recorded soundtrack.

There were several costume changes keeping in line with the characters which accounts for the strange outfits. The lengthy discussion before the song begins is reenactment from an episode of the show.

Hikasa Yoko portrays the character Akiyama Mio on bass. Yoko is right-handed.

Also of interest: Note musical instruments, amps and head units. Same as characters in HTT.

Significant moments 2:55 through 7:21.

Ha! Those are some crazy outfits.
My friend had a bar and did after hours parties he sold more glow sticks and
Ring pops than anything.
People who do ecstasy the drug like to suck on things and get tripped out by
The glow sticks.

What do they call that kind of dress when the girls look like a doll?

Thank you for adding!

Jen you posted at the same time as I.

That Todd Rundgren - With A Twist CD is awesome!!!
Out by the pool in the summer, perfect!!!~

Think that Todd Rundgren was not happy with it as it was out of print really quickly.
It may be hard to find.

Maybe now that he has a tiki bar he likes that CD more.

Dam Jen love that Max Raabe too!

Good one Veronica! Thanks for that!
Used to play that CD at my restaurant called Jacks, It was a diner.
The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana)

Here痴 one
Dam the Singing nun killed herself.
Just saw the movie on TV.

Citing their financial difficulties in a note, she and Annie P馗her committed suicide by an overdose of barbiturates and alcohol on 29 March 1985.[5][10][14] In their suicide note, Decker and P馗her stated they had not given up their faith and wished to be buried together after a church funeral.[13] They were buried together in Cheremont Cemetery in Wavre, Walloon Brabant, the town where they died.[15] The inscription on their tombstone reads "J'ai vu voler son 穃e/ A travers les nuages" (English: "I saw her soul fly across the clouds"


Not a great cover.

I found the "With a Twist" CD on Amazon. It may even be on iTunes. I love that whole CD! Tried to get Martiki to add the Hello It's Me/Quiet Village mashup to the Smuggler's Cove playlist, but he wouldn't bite.

I've seen Max Raabe live a few times. That whole act is awesome! Here they are covering Tom Jones' Sex Bomb.

Good one Veronica.

My wife works next to the Director of Intentional Initiatives in Engineering at The Ohio State University.
He travels to japan and well everywhere a lot.
Well he likes the song country roads by John Denver, If you can find that in a foreign tongue, he wants German for some reason.
But any foreign sung version would be cool.

And thanks again for those songs you did add.
You too Jen!

Awesome! Thank you.
He will love it!

This song I love.
They sung it at an employee awareness day at work, OSU.
Well this lady stood up and started makin weird noises and flailing about, I asked 努hat is that All about they said she had been touched with the unspeakable joy.
Never saw that before, but I must say that the gospel songs did get in me too, it was great!

Lastly I played this CD at my restaurant and it seemed to make people uncomfortable, like something inside them did not want To hear it.

I知 Not as reverent as all that sounds.
