Lilie / Lily / リリィ

mylist | blog

Lilie is an utaite highly regarded for her wonderful soprano voice and impeccable mixing. She was formerly known as Ririco, and by 2010, she has officially changed her utaite name to Lilie or Lily.

Lilie's voice, as mentioned, is a clear, strong soprano. The fact that she can still sing with force despite the very high notes often make her listeners amazed. But even if she's mostly singing very high songs, she can also sing in a full and solid low voice. She mostly sings techno and folk-inspired Vocaloid songs, and generously utilizes autotune and other effects that gives her voice a whispery, digital and even scrambled effect. She often calls her shaky, echoey voice effect the Bohemian version. She is also known for "whistling" in her early works.

Lilie has participated in some Touhou vocal albums as well as some utaittemita albums including "Alternative" by VUCA. She has also collaborated with a lot of utaite including Re:, Himawari, etc.

nikki says
To be honest, I don't listen to Lilie on a regular basis, but I think her voice, while not for your usual listening playlist, is unique and is always a pleasure to listen to. I was first taken by her cover of L'azur, and took note of how great the mixing (not to mention the high pitched parts) was. Eventually, I ended up listening to her again after I loved her and Re's cover of Synchronicity. I think I like her traditional/folk-inspired covers more, especially her kaoling covers, but it's always a surprise listening to her covers of more popular songs, like wowaka's XD. I don't dig her Bohemian voice much, but I admit it adds a certain impact to her songs.

This week's a bit slow and there are a lot of pull-ups, as well as retains. Still, that doesn't mean there's nothing to see (Dasoku and ASK have two songs each in this ranking, oi!). Not tl;dr-ing tonight so let's go.

↑# - 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

I'll be including the weekly top ten and the overall top thirty of the week. Links to the nicovideo are included as well as some information. You may download the .mp3 file by inputting the link @ nicosound. Enjoy!

This week is full of collabs and pairings, so expect to see a lot of them filling the rankings. You might notice last week that there is a slight bandwagoning of Suki Kirai? Well, it's not dying down and you'll even see more of them next week.

Anyway, you might notice that the Weekly Utaran has changed video dimensions (it's clearer and wider now!) as well as frame designs XD. I feel bad for not mentioning last week, but the portions are now of different colors (new uploads is blue, overall ranking is purple, pickup is light blue and history is orange). Utaran-san made great efforts to customize the presentation to everyone's viewing comforts, too, with all the data collected in the sides and properly labeled. Of course, make sure you stare hard at the screen at the rank intervals because Hibiki (if you don't know who Hibiki is...he's the Utaran mascot) appears in the frames, too XD.

So, this ranking is now color-coded. The links have colors specific to the portions so as to avoid confusion. The song names are still clickable, by the way. Please tell me if it looks okay or not. If not, I'll revert to the old format!

Okay I will stop gushing now before you close your tab XD.

You might notice that dreamwidth's celebrating Three Weeks for Dreamwidth, which commemorates the site's anniversary. We're very thankful to DW for giving us a place for this comm as well as giving invites so you guys can make journals so we'd like to participate in the celebration as well. The thing is we haven't thought of what to do XD. But we will, somehow, so please wait for it XD. In the meantime, there's a comm for all celebratory stuff in DW and it's [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw so please check them out :).

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #125 (March 21-28, 2011)

Note: Due to my lack of computer these past weeks (I'm merely borrowing my sister's computer and tweeting using my computer at work <-- worthless employee), I'm in a hurry to put this out. Please forgive the lack of descriptions.

There are quite a few of new stuff this week, partly because people are still trying to keep up with life over uploading covers, a few weeks after the earthquake. But as expected, we get a bandwagon song in the form of the dangerously catchy AC CM. So many covers, Utaran-san even set up a ranking just for it XD;.

First of all, for those who do not know about this meme, you can visit [livejournal.com profile] singing_robots's introduction about it as well as existing Vocaloid covers/arrangements of it here! It's important that you know what is this song that's rolling at the back of your head over and over!!

Now that that's clear...

Because of the TONS of covers for this really, insanely, ridiculously catchy song, Utaran-san did a separate ranking for it. It's just 1 minute and 40 seconds long...but it will be stuck in your head forever LOL.

So, since there's a ranking, there'll be a writeup. Here's the top 30 Aisatsu no Mahou utattemita/covers in NND ^^; This is in order (1-30) and will include only the singer names, because, well...it's just one song.

Annual Utattemita Ranking 2010 (12-25-09 to 12-25-10)

Happy 2011! あけましておめでとうございます!

As what I've done last year, here's the writeup for the massive, massive annual utattemita ranking 2010. Since this is a large list, I won't be including some of the stuff I include in the weekly utaran. For this, I'll only be posting the Romanized/translated title of the song, the singer/mylist and the link to the original song. Since most of these songs are from the weekly utarans all throughout 2010, I'll also spare you my spazz unless I can't keep myself quiet :D. Onto the 5-part special!



PART 1
PART 2
PART 3
PART 4
PART 5

* The parts are divided in many subparts, but for the purpose of continuity, I organized my writeup differently from the order in the videos.

As I've done the past year, this will be in a different format than the weekly utaran. To create more suspense, let's write it backwards from 100 to 001 :3. EVerything will be written backwards from here on.


UTATTEMITA RANKING 2010
The main part of this special is the Utattemita Ranking 2010. This is a ranked list of the best 100 songs uploaded from 12-25-2009 to 12-25-2010 which had gained a lot of views, mylists and comments. Here is the list from 100 to 001.

utattemita ranking 2010 )


KIRIBAN RANKS
* this list is also in reverse.

The kiriban ranks are songs that land in certain numbers in the rankings.

kiriban ranks )


NICO NICO INDIES x UTATTEMITA RANKING # 01-30

This ranking include songs uploaded in 2010 and have both "Nico Nico Indies" and "Utattemita" written in their tags. Some of them are collaborations between a Vocaloid producer and an utaite. This list is also in reverse, from 30 to 01.

nico nico indies x utattemita ranking )


UTATTEMITA VIDEOS BEST 100

You can refer to this ranking like the "overall weekly ranking" in weekly utaran. These are songs not uploaded in 2010 but have gained tons views, comments and mylists from 12-25-2009 to 12-25-2010. As expected, some of them are also the highest viewed, commented and mylisted videos of all time in this category. I did not elaborate on them like I did in the main ranking since you know most of these songs already, I bet XD. This list is also in reverse, from 100 to 001.

best 100 )


ENDING SONGS

These are the ending themes used in the ranking while the rest of the songs (beyond top 100) are flashed.

ending songs )



WHEW. That took me a long time. I hope you enjoyed this annual ranking as much as I did. While I expected some songs to be in the ranking but did not end up there at all, I guess the top spots are pretty predictable, aren't they? :D

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #109 (November 29 to December 06, 2010)

This is late (and the rest might be late, too) because of certain difficulties as I have no Internet at home and my work has blocked Nico Nico Douga. I apologize for delays in the future, too, if this kind of fail happens for a long time OTL.

Anyway, a big thanks to [personal profile] stephieku and the person who uploads the weekly utaran himself (who is so kind, I don't even...), I managed to get the ranking list and just...listened to them one by one instead of the ranking itself. I might miss some comments re: some of the songs, so sorry ;;. Anyway, on to the ranking, which is pretty predictable given the songs released this week :). There are tons of new songs, there wasn't much space for the oldies to cling on :(.

PS: The Vocaloid links in the blurbs inevitably lead to nicosound because it's what I used to listen to the songs ^^;. I'll try changing them but for now, please tolerate them Y_Y; Hopefully fixed the links back to Nicovideo.

↑# - 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

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #108 (November 22-29, 2010)

This week has a lot of songs you should've checked out by now since they're almost all by popular utaite. There are some downs this week, including all of Lon's, sadly (I'm not worrying because we all know how Lon's songs are XD). There are also some new people in the ranking who you might want to check out. You might be surprised by a certain person dominating the rankings with his old, old songs, but that's fine if you like crack...and Beatles :3. This ranking is quite bewildering if you start watching/reading from the bottom, so prepare to be surprised and question reality /shot XD.

↑# - 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

I'll be including the weekly top ten and the overall top thirty of the week. Links to the nicovideo are included as well as some information. You may download the .mp3 file by inputting the link @ nicosound. Enjoy!

Weekly Utattemita Ranking #106 (November 08-15, 2010)

This is quite an interesting ranking for me because of the new number 1 which seems to be inevitable as well as the influx of unfamiliar singers with wonderful covers. Have fun getting to know them! Also, be prepared for weird old song movements in the ranking.

Weekly Utaran #103 (October 18-25, 2010)

This week is an extension of even more Matryoshka bandwagoning and people trying to unleash the MMORPG gamers/singers in them. And new names, you might be surprised :). Someone decided to flood the rankings with his weird yet well-done covers, wonder who that is? XD

o1. 【Vin】Corruption Garden【吐いてみた】
Corruption Garden [Vin]
singer's mylist
Megurine Luka original by Caz
• This is actually the first male cover of this song that I've listened to, and I think Caz's song has been upped in GAR points by Vin ^^;. I don't usually like screamo, but wow, wth was that. I guess people have also been checking Vin after he was announced as a guest in a mini-concert next year :).

o2. 追跡立方体、キューブ 歌ってみた-遊
Tsuizeki Rippoutai, Cube [Yuu]
singer's mylist
Kagamine Rin original by NankaisekaiP
• I haven't gotten used to Yuu's voice, but I also haven't gotten to his choice of songs LOL. It's always creepy though XD.

o3. 【つきじ】「また君に恋してる」歌ってみた
Mata Kimi ni Koishiteru [Tsukiji]
singer's mylist
• This reminds me of old anime ;_;. The voice is really pretty, too! Like...Okiayu Ryoutarou.

o4. 「Sweet devil」を歌ってみた【グリリ】
Sweet Devil [Guriri]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by HachioujiP
• I actually like this better than Nobunaga's version. There's still a mountain of autotune in this song, which can't be helped, but Guriri sounds more solid and more refined. There's a bit of awkwardness with the phrasing but you can't help getting confused with the Engrish in this song ^^;.

o5. 「after this」歌ってみた@そらこ
after this [Sorako]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by NioP
• I haven't heard from Sorako much before this so I'm kind of glad she's uploading pretty covers again. Her high voice suits NioP's Miku range, although sometimes a bit missing from her cover. Very simply sung, which makes it a nice listen.

o6. 「Specification」歌ってみた【柿チョコ】
Specification [Kakichoco]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by papiyon
• One of the clearest covers of this song that I've heard. Kakichoco nailed the song and how to make it sound crisp and clear and full of feelings without effort.

o7. 【APヘタリア】アメリカとイギリスでマトリョシカ【歌ってみた】
(Hetalia Parody) Amerika to Igirisu de Matryoshka [collaboration]
Hatsune Miku and GUMI original by hachi
• Here comes the anime!Matryoshka bandwagon. I find them really amusing for some reason, the serifu especially.

o8. 声 - 歌ってみました。
Koe [Konori]
singer's mylist
Kamui Gakupo original by TambourineP
• Konori does Gakupo really well as always, although I have to remind myself to separate him from Machige's creepy works as I listen.

o9. 「ネトゲ廃人シュプレヒコール」 辻ヒールしてみました
Net Game Haijin Sprechor [Boku]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by Satsuki ga Tenkomori
• Reminds me of Nanahira, just one the more shriller level LOL ^^;

1o. 「ネトゲ廃人シュプレヒコール」歌ってみた。 ver.こ~ら
Net Game Haijin Sprechor [Ko~ra]
singer's mylist
Hatsune Miku original by Satsuki ga Tenkomori
• Ko~ra has a nice voice that I wouldn't think would sound good in rock-ish songs but he actually did the song well.
