Cheerleaders From Planet X Playlist

Continuing my theme of listening to really obscure music, when writing Cheerleaders From Planet X, I pumped myself up by listening to some of my favorite J-Pop and K-Pop hits from about 15 years ago. That makes this particular playlist not only hard to find on iTunes, but even on YouTube XD However, I did track down some full album uploads, which I will link to. 🙂

90% of what I listened to while writing this book was queen of pop and the universe BoA, so below is a breakdown of my most-listened BoA songs, by album. Pretty much the rest of my playlist consisted of Crystal Kay’s Vivid (which you can get on iTunes!) and random One Direction songs, because I have no shame whatsoever.

BoA – Listen to My Heart (Japanese)

  • Power1)This is like the Main Action Theme of the book, one of my favorite songs ever, and of course the version I like isn’t on YouTube. This live one is pretty good, though.
  • ID; Peace B
  • Listen to My Heart
  • Don’t Start Now

BoA – No. 1 (Korean)

  • No. 1

BoA – Made in Twenty (Japanese)

  • STILL2)This is the Main Love Theme from the book, and it IS on YouTube! You can hear the album version or check out this live version in which BoA blows us away with those high notes.

BoA – The Face (Japanese)

  • BASICALLY THIS ENTIRE ALBUM. This is my favorite BoA album. But in particular…
  • Lose Your Mind (SERIOUSLY THIS IS A GOOD ONE, YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS ONE)
  • Girl in the Mirror
  • Gyappu ni Yarareta
  • Hey Boy, Hey Girl

BoA – Only One (Korean)

  • The Top
  • The Shadow

BoA – Copy and Paste (Korean)

And in case you were curious… yes, I own all these albums. On CD. Ordered from CD Japan and YesAsia over the last decade and a half. And this isn’t even all the BoA CDs I own. Now if you ever wanted to know who my favorite musician is, the answer will be abundantly clear.
