KinKi Kids World is for all English-speaking KinKi Kids fans who, despite the language barrier, have found themselves falling in love with KinKi Kids and their music, this is my humble attempt to bring us all closer to the world of KinKi Kids - Domoto Tsuyoshi 堂本刚 (244) and Domoto Koichi 堂本光一(51).

The contents of this blog are based primarily on contents found in other Chinese blogs, as I have only just started learning Japanese (which is とても むずがしです i.e. very difficult). I wish to thank all the Chinese Kinki Kids fans for their hard work and efforts in translating the Japanese materials/information on the KinKi Kids.

Amazing how Tsuyoshi performs so beautifully the songs of other artistes!

This is a compilation of Tsuyoshi's performances of other artistes' songs. The songs are not really in any sequence. Maybe more like the ones I like better are placed at the top of the list! :P I will update this list as and when I come across any other video clips.

I am always so amazed by Tsuyoshi's renditions of other artistes' songs. This is probably not the first time I've said it but it's worth repeating. You know...when you've heard someone else perform a song already, the tendency is just to imitate how the original artiste sings it. However, not so for Tsuyoshi. He always seems to imprint his own style and intepretation into the songs. Of course some might say that his renditions are not as good as the original artiste's. After all, liking is subjective and the original artistes are all very good and talented singers. The ones that Tsuyoshi performed during his junior days were, I have to admit, not that good as his singing was then still not good. However, you must not miss the more recent ones such as Shirushi, Hajamari wa itsumo ame and I love you. Tsuyoshi sings them beautifully.
