[Poll Corner]Best idol cover of “Akai Sweet Pea” by Matsuda Seiko

28 Sep

After listening to Watanabe Mayu’s recent solo rendition of “Akai Sweet Pea” by eternal idol Matsuda Seiko, i was reminded of Kojima Haruna doing the same song years ago and decided to do a compilation of idol covers here.

Most of them did a really good job with the song, except for one(shall leave you to discover for yourself).

Anyway, i am including a poll at the bottom of this post so you can vote for the best cover. If this corner works out, i will introduce another song next week.

AKB48 Watanabe Mayu

AKB48 Iwasa Misaki

AKB48 Kojima Haruna

AKB48 Yokoyama Yui

Ex- Morning Musume Tanaka Reina (Start from 1:22)

Berryz Kobo Momoko Tsugunaga

HKT48 Miyawaki Sakura

    For next week, can you compile the song that Tomonoga Mio was singing in the last video?

    I will admit, it was a lot of fun to see Kojima-san perform that. Thank you for sharing the happiness.

    Sorry for the annoyance.

    This post has brought me so much happiness. I have the Wasamin “Request Covers” album. When I play it on my drive to work, I always skip to “Sweet Pea” so I can hear it first, and at least once.

    I enjoyed all of these performances.


  1. [Poll Corner]Best idol cover of “Blue Coral” by Matsuda Seiko | allthingsjpop - October 18, 2014

    […] So a few weeks back, i started a new section on AllThingsJpop called “Poll Corner” so we can get to hear our favourite idols sing classic songs and see how they fare against each other. The response was overwhelming, considering the lack of comments i get usually. Thank you for voting and i’m really glad to announce that Kojima Haruna won the first poll singing Matsuda Seiko’s “Akai Sweet Pea”! Can’t imagine a more deserving winner although the rest are fine singers. (Check out the results from first poll here.) […]
