Why is Morning Musume 19 Significant?
Morning Musume 19 is now the name of this group & it still keeps on releasing new material even though they have been overtaken in popularity by AKB48. Their name will be Morning Musume 20 next year but their goals will still be the same. These goals are to record songs, release albums, go on tours, and hold handshake events.
Oh My Wish & Its Importance to Japanese Pop Culture
The girl group Morning Musume (now known as Morning Musume 19) has released 15 studio albums in over 21 years. One of the newest singles is Oh My Wish! / Sukatto My Heart / Ima Sugu Tobikomo Yuuki. Oh My Wish! Is one of the group’s best songs ever. Fans of Japanese pop music should find the song really enjoyable. It may even be a song that you could listen to and dance!
How is the release of the single important to Japanese popular culture? This is because the group gives the world a source of entertainment and allows fans to meet their idols and get their autographs, something that would be harder to do in the Western World. This sense of openness is what allows for such a positive contribution to pop culture.

The Themes for the Songs Oh My Wish, Refresh My Heart & The Courage to Jump in Right Now
Let’s go through this three song single one at a time. Oh My Wish tells the story of someone that thinks or believes that they loved their partner too much. They now want their partner to go out and really enjoy it. As they say: “go for it.” All of us have dreams that we must go for and pursue. My wish is to write more articles for my fans around the world as they are about to get more exposure of the girl group Morning Musume 19. The Courage to Jump in Right Now is a song about wanting to reject being treated like a child & doing the things that we want to do. We have to have the courage to jump in and take that chance even if we sometimes feel that 24 hours in a day isn’t enough time to do the things that we want to do. Refresh My Heart has an electro pop influence to it as the person described in the song has become anxious and they hate themselves to the point that they are wounded and they are looking for ways to refresh their heart and they plan not to run away anymore.
