Yum! Yum! Orange

Post by RyanE » Sun Mar 20, 2005 3:26 am

Hey yall,
My absolute favorite group is Yum! Yum! Orange.
They're a Japanese group I discovered in Tokyo and was overwhelmed by how happy their music was.
You know a band is happy when they have not just one, but two exclamation points in their name. And they sing about sunshine, comic books, and dancing. Listening to Yum! Yum! is like having sunshine and happiness injected directly into your blood stream.

Here they are singing about comics:

Both of their albums, Orange Street 33 and Orange Juice are great.

Their site is at

I love ska. And this is awesome ska type music.

Any more songs other than that one on the net? I don't think I have the money to import...

There are a few videos on their site, if you can make your way through the Japanese links to find them. I'll try and put another song or two on my site since it's difficult to get them off theirs.
Their rendition of "Don't Worry Be Happy" is especially nice.
