Princess Princess -- Ding Dong


One of the more rollicking J-Xmas tunes out there, Princess Princess' ode to the Holiday season came out as a track on the band's 4th album, "Lovers" in November 1989 which hit the top spot on Oricon. Written by guitarist Kanako Nakayama(中山加奈子) and composed by vocal Kaori Okui(奥井香), "Ding Dong" zooms ahead at the typically Princess Princess speed of Warp 1, but the words are pretty bitter about another person grumbling about being left alone over Christmas. Perhaps he or she is feeling like a ding dong about getting dumped.

Here's the band performing "Ding Dong" back in 1989.
