I'm so bored with Seasons and Evolution
Though I don't get tired of M

If she were to perform evolution by herself + band I'd be all for it though. But I'm sure there'll be 30 people on stage lol

Funny thing is JUJU is singing her new cover song instead of maybe yasashisa de afureru you ni so I'm sure ayu could've worked a newer song in there

I think they do, as long as it is considered a big hit. Or at least have some say. For Arashi, there were certainly more iconic songs that could have been chosen (with the exception of A-RA-SHI of course) the other two were hits, but not ones that they are necessarily super known for.

So I suppose the argument could be made that Ayu could have gone for Voyage, Dearest, Appears etc - songs that were hits, but not the ones that she is most known for. Still though, 3 songs. I'm happy.

It's probably because the original song itself is iconic and would help to represent the 80s era on Music Station.

Oh, Surreal is definitely not in there. When she performed it for Heyx3s last episode or some kind of special a few years ago, the hosts commented afterwards that they thought she would have done a song that's more well known. lol.

Yeah tbh evolution doesn't really get mentioned by many people though.

M and Seasons are by far the most mentioned I think.

If you have them listen to choruses from various songs they generally know them. It's just they're not as memorable I guess.

Also almost everyone always says Maria instead of M lol.

There's that video of a comedian playing several pop girls and the chosen song was evolution (not only while playing Ayu, but all of them), so I guess the song is iconic enough. I believe A Song for XX is notorious too.

A song for XX is iconic af but maybe is not considerate "a hit" since it wasn't a single or something, I'm not sure tho, Dearest instead of SEASONS would have been something fresh and a totally throwback to I Am...

^ 1) It seems that Japanese fans prefer her to sing the same songs over and over instead of new stuff or underperformed old songs (someone pointed out that at TA tour 2015 some fans didn't even recognize/know Present when she sung it)
2) This Music Station's aim is not to please fans, its aim is to appeal to the general public who only remember the same old stuff from her peak, even your regular Music Station's aim is not to please fans, its purpose it to show the general public what's new and which new CD to buy.

I don't get the purpose of your comment. A tv program is a tv program. And at a regular show as MS Ayu won't sing several songs as she can do it in a special show.

Evolution is a big hit. I've seen several people break that one out at karaoke. A Song For Xx though is really more of a fan favorite and I don't feel that many people in the general public recognize it.

Not surprised with song choice but happy that she's still doing TV lives. Hope that she continues to do regular lives on Music Station with new releases and not just singing old songs on Special Editions.

Interesting how nobody mentions songs like Too Late or monochrome which were part of her best selling single.

We discussed here how many songs she usually gets to perform on a TV show among other artists. This time she will sing more than usual. So bringing up SONGS is ...

THIS so much. I don't know why people don't get that.

^ Exactly. The casual viewer is only going to care about seeing hit songs. I mean, for me as well, unless I'm a big fan of the artist, I usually only pay attention if it's a song that I know from them. Otherwise, I just sit there bored until it's Ayumi's turn.
