[About Masha] Songs selection process for THE BEST BANG!! album

0 comments Post a Comment
We all know by now most songs in THE BEST BANG!! album has been rearranged either with new guitar or instrumental play, remastered or some keen eared fans say, new vocals (although I am not sure which one). However you may wonder why some songs made the cut and others disappointingly didn't? And why the album seem more like Best Hits album rather than Masha's own BEST BANG so to speak? That is to say is this a collection of best hits of 20 years of Masha's very active career or should it have been a collection of Masha's own personal favourites out of 20 years worth of musical catalogue?

Well thanks to Izumisano for the answer as by Masha himself;

First I had to decide which songs to include. If I selected them all by myself, I felt it would end up being a list of my personal preferences (laugh). So I asked all my staff. And the replies were "songs that people know well". I guess that means the hits. [BROS Magazine Issue #88]

I am disappointed he had so little faith in his fans. Like I said in my reply at the forums, "Your fans will appreciate whatever is your preference, after all all fan favourites can be found in other albums. What we want is YOUR favourite"

Anyhow, it is still an admirable list of songs aka greatest hits. 20 years... that's a lot to show for. Moreover THE BEST BANG!! is selling really really well. I won't bore you with the statistics since I am not following it myself but from what I heard, it is on its way to be one of Masha's best selling album.
