陽は, また昇る (“Hi wa Mata Noboru”) had to be the catchiest tune in 2008. An uplifting song devoted to Japan’s salaryman.
I placed this under Mai Satoda’s category because she is the most recognizable member I believe and the real reason I even know about this song. Aladdin was formed from groups on “Quiz Hexagon II”- クイズ!ヘキサゴンII – a Japanese quiz variety show on Fuji Television. The ladies are from Pabo and the men from Suchishin –羞恥心. In the PV Mai wears a green dress in the concert footage.
Mai Satoda (second from right on the CD cover) performs also as ‘Mai Satoda with the Goda Family’ – 里田まい with 合田家族, another Quiz Hexagon II outfit. We will upload that fun video in the near future.
