Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari - Information

Information

The release of "Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari" marked the graduation of members Nozomi Tsuji and Ai Kago as they went on to concentrate full-time on their duo W (Double You). The title track is the longest running Morning Musume song to date, and each of the song's 14 verses is an anecdote about each member of the band, sung by different three-to-five-person combinations of band members.

A new version of this song, with each band member singing an anecdote about themselves, is featured on their sixth album Ai no Dai 6 Kan, and is appropriately titled "Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari 2". This version was recorded after Kago and Tsuji's graduation (although their backing vocals are still present, as a copy of the single version's original digitally-recorded multi-track master was used).

Another version of the song, entitled "Joshi Kashimashi Monogatari 3", is included on their February 2006 album release Rainbow 7, featuring the current members at the time of release.

The coupling track, "Ganbare Nippon Soccer Fight", was written and recorded for the 2004 Japanese Olympic Soccer Team.

In 2011, It was announced that the newly formed group, Dream Morning Musume, consisting of former-Morning Musume members, will redo this song on their upcoming album.

Famous quotes containing the word information:

    The family circle has widened. The worldpool of information fathered by the electric media—movies, Telstar, flight—far surpasses any possible influence mom and dad can now bring to bear. Character no longer is shaped by only two earnest, fumbling experts. Now all the world’s a sage.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)

    Rejecting all organs of information ... but my senses, I rid myself of the Pyrrhonisms with which an indulgence in speculations hyperphysical and antiphysical so uselessly occupy and disquiet the mind.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
