Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #177 (February 14 - 21, 2011)

This is not a strong week, although there are a lot of new covers. It's just that you'll be seeing a lot of returnees, a couple of them caused by the number 1 song and the rest...because we love 'em? XD The rest are remnants from last week. Still, it doesn't mean there are no good songs this week. There are a few which are really worth checking out! :3

↑# - the song moved up from a previous top 30 rank
↓# - song moved down from a previous top 30 rank
- song is a re-entry to the top 30 rankings

Whoo / フー

mylist | piapro | blog | KarenT profile | HearJapan profile

Whoo started uploading his Vocaloid works in Nico Nico Douga October of 2009 and since then he has been steadily putting out songs. He is part of the music circle "s10rw" which also includes monaca:factory, ryuryu and yuxuki / sorairo club.

Whoo's music style is fixed between folk rock and progressive rock with Celtic and ambient influences. One defining characteristic of his music is his use of guitars in every song. His guitar melody is sharp, upbeat and often accompanied with subtle but snappy drums plus additional sounds like chimes, piano, accordion, harmonica and other music. For some reason, when I first listened to his works, I'm reminded of three bands: The Beatles, Blackmore's Night and Pink Floyd ^^;.

Hatsune Miku is Whoo's sole Vocaloid, and she is always tuned to sing in gentle, whispery notes. Despite that, she sounds lovely in very high pitches and can sing well against the sharp guitars.

Aside from composing Vocaloid songs, Whoo also delves into collaborating with singers for Indies music, recently with Tabun Jibun. He also does covers, albeit rarely, of his own songs.

sample songs
A Song For Your Melodion
CLOCKS
Dear Prudence
PARADES
Ameto

sample non-vocaloid songs
Time And A Word (with task and Tabun Jibun)
PARADES (self-cover)

I decided to follow Whoo's works after I heard his PARADES, which I eternally love. I used to mix him up with Yuxuki because their Miku sound so similar, but later on, I realize Yuxuki has a more pop approach while Whoo is mostly rock-ish. By the way, Whoo's album, Oto no nai Heya no Naka de is really lovely. Actually, the whole s10rw's style is similarly beautiful in a way that they are all pleasing to the ears with Miku's almost whispery-singing and with the grand use of chimes, piano, and other hymn-like sounds. Their collab albums are always a must-listen.

As you might remember, I posted the midyear special ranking sometime in July, where the songs included were those uploaded from December 2009 to June 2010. This is the LATTER PART of that ranking, where the top songs from June 15 to December 14, 2010 are uploaded.

The video has 80 songs, but the mylist has 200 songs O_O;. A-anyway, I've included them all in the list. As with the previous mid-year ranking and all the other rankings which aren't weekly, this is written in reverse for more suspense :D.

Since all of them are Miku songs, I'll just type the song, composer and additional Vocaloids used if there are any :).

The last few are so predictable XD;. Anyway, I'll be doing the rest of the rankings, too (how many more to go? D: ) so please wait for them! /o/

...The tags...I...will do them later orz.

The last one for this year, this is our third list of songs Vocaloid producers sang. They can be self-covers, covers of other songs or original songs altogether. You might be familiar with some of them as they appeared in the utattemita ranking.

Weekly Vocaloid Ranking #169 (December 20-27, 2010)

This week's ranking doesn't have as many new uploads as before but hey, 15 new songs in the ranking isn't bad. There are strong keepers (LOLwowakadecoetc) but the ones who rose to the top are new, lovely music definitely worth a listen. I apologize for the lateness of this post, though, as well, Christmas = parties = sleepless nights. Yup. Not to mention the Internet is amazingly slow during the holidays, isn't it? Anyway....

Today's ranking is a bit confusing with all the surprising returners, the keeps (wow) the ups and downs from old songs (lol, all the catchy songs moved a notch up or kept their rank, wow). Also, we have quite a beautiful number 1 and a lot of new songs. Most importantly, we have KAITO in the ranking XD. Enjoy!

This week's ranking only has a few new songs, but they're all wonderful. Most of the songs in the ranking are just movements from the previous week but there's a couple of surprising re-entries. Also, some of the songs in the higher ranks are from new and/or underappreciated producers so please look through them! :)

This week has only a bit of new uploads (wait until next week, after Miku's birthday matsuri XD). There's a bit more MMD stuff remaining from the 5th MMD cup and of course, there are songs celebrating Lily's release. The rest are mere movements within the ranks and surprising returns.

Just a heads up since you might not notice, but I won't be using YT links/embeds for utattemita/Vocaloid music anymore unless it's something not in Nicovideo. Some songs are being deleted off YT and IDK really how producers/singers think of people multi-posting their works in YT, so to keep it safe, I'm using the official Nico Nico Douga links forever XD;. This will also apply to my other websites ([community profile] onsenjikan, etc.). Thanks!
