Has anybody heard of them?

I love their songs!

Yup! Ride on Shooting Star!
Blues Drive Monster!
My favourite has to be Little Busters!!!
My friends hammer them at me all the time so I have no choice but to listen to them...
BUT They are a 'cool tool fool' group! ^^
Yeah I like them!

The Pillows are Japan's answer to Weezer. Their music is fantastic and I wish they would release more music!!

Ooh, yeah! They produce some sweet songs! 'course I never heard of them until FLCL came to the 'net so I didn't hear them until I got the series on Kazaa @_@; But I like them anyways! Ride on Shooting Star is a great song!

I like Crazy Sunshine and the moon is mine. I don't think those songs are from FLCL (I never seen FLCL).

Hey! I never posted in this thread! *bangs head*

I haven't heard anything yet that's not from FLCL. (No Kazaa, and google searches are pretty random, what you can find.) Neither of those are from FLCL, Lovely Angel.

My favorite . . . mm, well I obviously like Ride On Shooting Star or I wouldn't keep competing with it at karaoke. ^^ But I also really love "Instant Music".

Yah, I always thought of them as a japanese weezer alike. Infact, subhuman almost sounds exactly like him. Gotta luv them XD

I love them. Such great songs, and incredibly upbeat. Only if FLCL was mini series, they would've crammed more of their music in to the anime. FLCL had the rights to use all songs from the pillows. Pillow says to the director, we like you, you can use all our songs.^_^ some people are just cool.

Crazy Sunshine is one of my favorites too, just for the name alon :D. yeah, the director managed to cramm Crazy Sunshine into FLCL. But the ones that really get my adreline going are

Last Dinosaur
I think I can

I don't just like Ride on Shooting Star. I live it. I'm a star warrior, it's how I get around. :D

*GASP* :eek: I never knew that they dated back to the 90's...kewl:D

Well, according to the director, one of the reason why they were choosen to do the FLCL music was because they're not a new and fadish band. They're a veteran band. Played for 15 years from the time FLCL was made. just never made really famous until now...

*stares at cute bubbley dragon* KAWAII!!!

11-05-2002, 03:52 PM
You're suppose to fear it, not like it! :p

Have any of you heard of a song by the pillows called "We have a theme song" or I think that's what its called, they say "we have a theme song"

09-20-2003, 10:36 PM
That's a cool song. ^_^ Their latest single 'Terminal Heavens Rock' is totally great too! Everyone go buy it! XD I also have their "Another Morning, Another Pillows" cd set which has rarities & c/w songs... it includes a vocal version of 'Come Down' as well as other songs from FLCL, plus a bunch of nice new fun stuff. ^^ I like pillows, pillows good. :) They've been around awhile, so thank goodness for FLCL or they really wouldn't get the attention they've always deserved! Most of the FLCL songs come from their Runners High, Please Mr Lostman, and Happy Bivouac albums.

does anyone know where to download crazy sunshine?

11-13-2003, 11:35 PM
The Pillows are my favorite J-Rock band. Blues Drive Monster is a wonderful song. It sets such a nostalgic mood...

11-14-2003, 01:43 AM
What-the... wow, I'm still getting e-mail from my subscription to this site.... suge... Anyways. Yeah, the pillows are cool, but I'm afraid to get anything more than the FLCL soundtracks. I like their sound but I'm afraid if that if I do, I might see (or hear rather) that their new songs sound like their old ones. I'd almost rather not know if that's true or not. >.< I'll try their new soundtracks once I get enough courage to... uhmm... face the music, so to speak. :p

P.S. Just go buy their soundtrack. If you like it, (and they are a relatively unknown and poor band) it's worth it to buy it.

P.P.S. Hi to everyone I haven't spoken to in a while. How have you all been? :D

11-14-2003, 07:13 AM
hmm i really like thier music. my favorites are:

Last Dinosaur, The Moon is Mine, Skeleton Liar, Hybrid Rainbow, and She Is Perfect.

11-14-2003, 11:55 AM
My roommate own all of their CDs, so I hear a lot of them. They're very good! They have a lot of songs *_*

And Ninny is always getting stuck in my head ^^;

Have any of you heard of a song by the pillows called "We have a theme song" or I think that's what its called, they say "we have a theme song"

YAY! ::does dance:: That's one of my favorites!!! Well ok, almost all of the Pillows songs are my favorite Pillows songs-_-;;;.....

Yup that's right ^^ I totally love that song and I listened to it for an hour and sang the english lyrics and hummed the rest because i can't sing in japanese without the lyrics in front of me, and yeah.

My favorite songs by The Pillows are(in no especial order)
2.Hybrid Rainbow
3.We Have a Theme Song
4.Beautiful Morning With You
5.Crazy Sunshine
6.I Think I Can
9.White Ash
And erm I can't think of anymore.....

My signature is supposed to say Naota's smiley(as in from FLCL where I heard about the Pillows) but it says Naot's smiley. I'm too lazy to change it, so use your imaginations. I'm also doing a Haurko cosplay if anyone's interested(probably not XP) and I'll have pixx of the progress in my gallery.

Wow this thread lives. And so does SleepingKirby! Amazing.

Yah, I posted already . . . done Pillows songs at three karaoke contests now, lol. (Ride on Shooting Star and I Think I Can.) I *want* to do Instant Music at karaoke, since it's one of my favorites, but I don't think they'd let me. XD

I'm definitely making the Pillows puppets from the Ride on Shooting Star video. So cool. Just have to figure out how . . . o.O
