In Japan, there is a huge television/music sensation known as Morning Musume. Rising to prominence in the 1990’s, this all-girl group holds open auditions each year to replace a bandmember who “graduates”. Singing mostly upbeat tunes, this group was one of the leading bands on the Japanese pop charts in the 1990’s, and is still going strong today. For an example of one of their upbeat songs, please refer to the video below.
