First ever Tommy song?

Post by winksniper on Sun Jun 28, 2009 7:56 pm

Care to share what your first Tommy song was (if you remember)?
And how you found it, too. Very Happy

Mine was PAPERMOON.
I was going through this list of Anime songs on this website called Gendou.com, and I saw PAPERMOON, and I was like, "That sounds cool. A song called Paper Moon by someone named Tommy Heavenly6. That sounds awesome."

EDIT: In case you didn't know, PAPERMOON was used as the opening theme for Soul Eater, that's why it was on an Anime music site.

So I listened to it and fell in love.

So... you?

Ahhh....... I was looking at Ai Otsuka CDs on yesasia.com and saw Heavy Starry Heavenly. "Whats this I wonder?". "Tommy heavenly6?. Is that a dude?" So I go on an Asian music forum and download the Heavy Starry Chain PV. And the rest is wonderful history. Very Happy

Hahaha! And it always sucks, for me anyways, to have to explain why I'm so obsessed with someone named Tommy. They're like, "OoOoOoO, is he hot? Do you have a crush on him?!?!?" Then its like, Nooo, it's a girllll..... and her real name's Tomoko.... "Tomoko?!?!?! That's a weird name for a chick!" URGHGHGHGHGHG!

Totally. Someone asks me why her name is Tommy and by the time I explain, their head explodes in confusion. Most people that don't understand don't listen to any japanese music.

Mine was Lollipop Candy BAD Girl. I discovered it by searching for "Halloween J-Pop Japan" on Youtube, I was attracted by the split screen still from the video. The reason I searched for this was because I was looking for a Halloween desktop backround, and though Japanese music may provide something interesting, and it did, plus more!!

I couldn't stop playing this song, so I ordered the single from YESASIA.com, and I used to just play it over and over again all the time. Meanwhile I was just watching and reading everthing about Tommy on the net, and, as they say, the rest is history!

If only I found out about her sooner than Heavy Starry Heavenly, my collection would be much more impressive. Very Happy

♥Lonely in Gorgeous♥...I was watching Paradise Kiss. Usually When i watch animes i skip over the opening and ending theme songs, but not for this one...
♥Lonely in Gorgeous♥ was just to amazing to skip.

So i checked out more February, and didn't like her much, and on youtube after i watched the Love if Forever video they had the related videos come up after,and there was Heavy Starry Chain...watched it, and feel in love.

and I know what you guys mean by the explaining, it was hilarious when i was raving about Heavenly to a friend of mine she was eventually like "okay let me hear this amazing singer" so i put Heavy Starry Chain on, and she listened for a second, and then was like "Why is he a girl?!" which of course didn't make sense, but I knew what she meant! haha!

I'm Gonna SCREAM+... The single had just been released, and it was on Jpopsuki latest torrents. I just found the name very curious, then I downloaded... I was like "WHOA, this is SO GREAT!"...

Then some months after that, I "discovered" that Tommy february6 was the same person, but a different character... from this moment I started loving Tommy!

In the days of the beginning,
Syunsaku dropped a demo tape into the mailbox of her house.
Suddenly he wrote "To Tommy" instead of "To Miss Tomoko".
because, he wanted to call her name more familiarly.
She hated the nickname. but, Ryo and Syunsaku did not stop call her "Tommy".

http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%B7%9D%E7%80%AC%E6%99%BA%E5%AD%90

愛称の「Tommy」の由来
the brilliant greenのリーダー奥田が川瀬のために書いた曲のデモテープを彼女の家のポストに入れる際、
『智子さんへ』と書くのもなんだしと悩み、なんとなく『トミーへ』と書いたことから。
当初本人は嫌がっていたが、松井と奥田がしつこく呼び続けた結果、『トミー』で定着。
なおTommyは本来英語で男性名(Thomasの愛称)だが、女性名(Thomasの女性形であるThomasinaの愛称)として使われることも稀にある[1]。

I watched the video of this story somewhere.

That's so cool that Tommy's like her persona, but she hated the nickname. That cracks me up.

HAHAHAHA!! That made me laugh!! =D =D Although, I can imagine how annoying that must've been..

I always forget it's a guy's name. People have never told me they thought Tommy was probably a guy. Perhaps I speak about her as a girl, then reveal her name afterwards. I was asked why she had a guy's name once. I explained, "It's a nickname for her real name, which is Tomoko." [which ends the topic of her name].

But I can relate! Tommy hated Tommy. I hated Niles. That is my (most popular) nickname, clearly a boy's name. When I was younger, I resented it. Named after Niles (Niles Crane) from Fraiser (TV show) - as my best friend and her mother said I was like him plus we have very similar names. So, yeah.. but eventually I just got used to it and so, a lot of people called me Niles.



I first heard Tommy because of "Lonely in Gorgeous". I only had about five Japanese songs by this time, one from Battle Royale by Dragon Ash, two from Utena and two from Bleach (how I remember that?.. I dunno!). I was browsing one of these songs on the Internet, came across a blog which had some Japanese things on it. To be honest, I wasn't interested in Japan at this point at all - so I dunno why I was reading it, I guess I just like gossip (I have 15 foreign magazines from various places in the world, love looking at the articles even though I can't read them. Cool seeing what celebs. they have. Anyways..).

I read an article talking about Tommy february6, talking about her comical video for "Lonely in Gorgeous". So, I clicked and watched it. I loved it! But did not become a Feb.6 fan, I became a brilliant green fan after looking into her more. =) I had all the brilliant green's albums before I had anything of Tommy's solo work (with the exception of Lonely in Gorgeous). ^^

Hehehe, I forget Tommy's a guy name too. I guess I just forget about it.
& Since you brought it up, I thought I might as well throw this in there... Utena's an awesome anime. /end geek

I remember when I first started downloading her songs, I got like the majority/most popular Heavenly songs, but I only got KISS ONE MORE TIME and CANDY POP IN LOVE from February, because I didn't really like her that much. I believe my first BuriGuri songs were Ai no Ai no Hoshi, Stand By Me, Tsumetai Hana and Ash Like Snow. I didn't really get into February or BuriGuri until a few months ago, actually.

I know it's so funny how i just forget Tommy's a guy name. Like my Friend was telling me about her friend Tommy, and I was like "Oh she sounds cool" and my friend was just like "Tommy's a guy..." it was funny.

First time I remember hearing Tommy... "Roller Coaster Ride" during the opening of "Shimotsuma Monogatari". I bought Heavenly's first album within the week. Not long after, I went over to February.

My story isn't new - Parakiss's "Lonely in Gorgeous". That was a...miracle(?) I listened for it all the time. Learned the text, found the instrumental ver. and sang everywhere) Then I decided to learn something about TF6, but I was disappointed( Her music was "too light" for me)) But heavenly6 seemed very cool) Then I learned about BuriGuri and was in a big shock - their music was amazing and Tommy's voice seemed more tender *_*
And not long time ago I've became grown up enough for TF6 Very Happy
Always waiting for her new albums. Hey Tommy, make us happier!))
