Why do you love The Peace! Why is it your favorite song?

For me, the HO~ hora yukouze was so addictive. First time I listened to it, I just had it on loop 20 or 30 times.

Then there's the performance. Rika owns it despite singing very few lines. Her monlogue is famous and should never be done by anyone ever again. And fanboys worldwide were treated to the most vicious ass shaking EVER. Shaking your booty is the key element of good dancing, let's see Rika demonstrate:


From 2001...just observe how the others are just shuffling while Rika moves her feet and each ass cheek completely rotates on its own axis!! Observe:
NORMAL SPEED
SUPER SLOW MO


It continues through today. Absolutely no one can duplicate Rika's dance moves. They too busy shaking their arms. Here's one from 2003:
NORMAL SPEED
SUPER SLOW MO

My other favorite part is how they split apart and Rika pumps up the crowd by herself. Doing her little solo spin and point telling everyone to GET ON UP!!



WATCH HER OWN EVERYONE

So what about you?  :halo:

It's definitely one of my favourites. The chorus is very catchy and has a big sound. I especially like in the PV where the girls are jumping in the air in slow motion!

Very nice song and a good PV.

Now I will watch the performance and see this booty shaking you are praising so effusively. However, unfortunately I am at work so I may not be able to "express my appreciation" for Rika's jiggling assets in the "usual" way.

I agree about the very beginning.  It's just so catchy, I can't get it out of my head...

And Rika's little speech is super cute.

Like Rika says in MM x Tsunku 2 (read the translation by Fenrir13) ... The Peace is the song that she feels she can be at one with the audience...yes, when 2 becomes 1.  :bounce:

I didn't like this song when it first came out.

At the time all I saw was the PV, and my reaction was basically  :?.

Since then though, I've liked it more and more. It's a great song to see performed live, and the energy is really infectious.

May 6th? I've never seen this thread before!

The Peace is the only H!P song that I listen to all the damn time and never get tired of. (And I'm the kind of person who put a song in a loop and listen to it for hours.)

The PV i think is hilarious, when the urinals all lit up, I was laughing so much I had tears! The chant at the start is great as well, seeing the "HO~ hora yukouze" chanted at one of the recent H!P concerts was fantastic, sending chills down my spine. It is one of those songs that creates a sort of energy not a lot of songs can do. No wonder it is Rika's favourite song to perform!

I still remember when I attended the H!P 2001 concert, and they revealed "The Peace!" for the very first time. Everyone thought the song was over, so they were about to clap, but they just kept going. :lol:


I could tell the fans were starting to get annoyed. I didn't have a problem, though! I kept shouting random things 'cause the arena was dead silent whenever they froze. I was fairly close to the stage, so I'm sure the members heard some of the stuff I said.

Because The Peace! made me a Rika fangirl *^_^* It's my favorite H!P song ever. It has the most wonderful melody and lyrics which make no sense. But that's one part why I love it so much! All my friends are all "doesn't this ever end? *sweatdrop*" but I'm enjoying the ending so much, especially the extended ikimasshoi version <3

I even cosplayed Rika from The Peace. Not the golden dress but the sailor one.

And I didn't even mention the dance yet! To me it's the coolest thing ever.

I uploaded some of the pics: http://fuyumi.nipponfever.net/thepeace/

Sorry for not being as cute and wonderful as Rika ^_^; My hair is a little bit too short but I'm quite happy with the costume. The last pic is so awful! But it's in the restroom so... :D I didn't have guts to go to men's restroom...

Yeah, and hello to everyone here! I've read this forum for a while already and decided to write something myself too. :) Yoroshiku nee!

Don't worry, you're still cuter than 99% of the cosplayers  :)

And  :welcome again.

I agree.  I saw Sailor Bubba at Ushi-Con in Austin.  That's what I call him.  Imagine a 6' slightly overweight, early 40's, shoulder length hair, white guy, dressed as Sailor Mars.  The Horror!

you can see Tsunku talk about the influences (the charleston) and inspirations (the campaigning of politicians at the time!) etc. and check out the beefy background singers.

Hmm...I have to say The Peace! and Souda! We're Alive were the two songs that really made me fall in love with Momusu because they were somehow just AWESOME.  
I liked the 2002? 2003 Kohaku when they were singing the Peace and they acted like the song ended. And then they ran back to the stage...

The Peace is one of the first PVs I saw with Momusu.... I didn't get the charm with it back then, but now it's one of my faves ^^

Rikas speach in The Peace is the cutest she's ever done! I didn't know this was her favourite song to perform  :D

I'm not a huge fan of the yellow/golden/flowerthingy-dresses though.. I think they look pretty ridiculous  :wink: but the sailorsuits are the cutest!
