yeah since it's been 20years with them as a group
I'll probably add in stuff bits by bits but will try to keep this thread up to date as much as possible.

^Yup! It looks like it'll be announced during SMAPxSMAP. What do you all think will show up on it?


Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana is pretty much a given but I hope Orange makes the cut. Of course these are the songs I want to be on it (but not sure if they'll make it):

Original Smile
Orange (pleaseeee???? *crying face*)
Aoi Inazuma
Let it be
Song 2 ~the sequel to that~ (I feel like I'm the only one who loves this song)
Bang! Bang! Bakansu
Fly
Peace!
SHAKE
Oretachi ni Asu ga aru

Sekai ni hitotsu is definitely a given.
other songs that probably will make it are Original Smile, Ganbarimasho, Shake, Bang Bang Vacansu, Lion Heat, Yozora no Muko
.. somehow I think Can't Stop Loving should be in it just because it's their debut single :p
Aoi Inazuma and Dynamite might make it too. Ten Dollars, Arigatou too maybe.

I'm hoping for Oranji, Yozora no Muko, Tomodachi say what you will, and Ceroli... don't think Ceroli will make it though

Ohh yeah, I forgot about Dynamite. I wonder if Kansha Shite will also make the list since I think that's a popular song among fans (although I think I read somewhere that SMAP themselves don't really like the song). I could do without Tomodachi e but $10 would be nice.

Kimura gave an obvious hint on the no.1 song during his radio show last week.  It's



My hope
Original Smile, Shake, Stay, Yozora, Fly, Arigato, Five Respect

Prediction
Sekai, Original Smile, Shake, Yozora, Ganbarimashou, Hajimari no Uta

I wonder if this will be the last release I'll buy from them, with the lack of recent good materials, and a lot of other things. Which is saddening since I've been a fan for so long.

@Ardnala,

I love Song 2 too, but I don't think it will make the cut. But Orenji, please please please!

SMAP AID (only 15 songs + 1 bonus track will be included in the album.  But they revealed TOP20 so I'm going to post all 20 songs)

  1. Original Smile
  2. Hajimari no Uta
  3. Not Alone  (probably because it wasn't released as a physical single so they voted for this song)
  4. Susume
  5. Sekai ni Hitotsu dake no Hana 
  6. Arigatou
  7. Stay  
  8. Orange
  9. Yozora no Mukou
  10. Douka todokimasu you ni
  11. Kono Toki, kitto yume jyanai
  12. Ganbarimashou
  13. This is Love
  14. Fine, Peace
  15. Freebird
  16. Dear Woman
  17. Best Friend
  18. Lion Heart 
  19. Kimi wa Kimi da yo
  20. Chomalungma (2008 concert song)
The list is definitely for hardcore SMAP fans because several album songs are included.  It is reported that Sekai ni Hitotsu dake no Hana (Chinese version) is going to be the bonus track.

I guess I've been out of the SMAP loop since I don't know some of these songs (the album tracks). Cfe360fd6c85b4ff44bd8c20945cc1911023de3c_r This is the tracklist I found online:


1. freebird
2. Fine, Peace!
3. This is love
4. Ganbarimashou
5. Kono shunkan, kitto yume janai
6. Douka todokimasu youni
7. Yozora no Mukou
8. Orange
9. STAY
10. Arigatou
11. Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana (single version)
12. Susume!
13. not alone ~shiawase ni narou yo~
14. Hajimari no Uta
15. Original Smile
16. Sekai ni hitotsu dake no hana (Chinese version)

Hmm, I'm so glad Orange made it (and Original Smile!); I'm disappointed DEAR WOMAN didn't make it though. I hope they put out a proper best sometime in the future since that's missing as well as Triangle.

I love Fly but I feel like that's a forgotten SMAP single to be honest Cfe360fd6c85b4ff44bd8c20945cc1911023de3c_r


Everyone seems to love STAY so I'm looking forward to listening to it.

Today SMAP is 20years old. Congrats on your 20th anniversary, SMAP

As to celebrate their 20th anniversary, today SMAP held a fan event for 10,000 people at Seibuen Amusement Park in Saitama - it was the place where they held their CD Debut Event 20 years ago.

I actually ordered it on an impluse :p
I'm not really a Kimura stan but my friend was like "c'mon it's absolutely worth it!" I am right now saving up everything to get by each month :p

FanxFun event today, fan reports that they sang a new song... wonder why they're having a new song since SMAP songs are usually tie-in with something...(some says it's gonna be released on 21 Dec.) and they announced they'll be having a concert next year too (which doesn't concern me that much cause I won't be able to attend anyway)


anyway...


Kimurasan, otanjoubi omedetou
thank you for everything you have done so far
wishing you happiness and health always <3
hope you have fun celebrating with the fans today smiley: glasses
