I've been meaning to make this entry since at least 6 months. This comes from a crazy obsession of mine, which is finding far and large music related to stuff I like (I was doing this A LOT relating to music trailers etc... To the point I have discographies of composers for music trailer only XDDDD And sometimes when I'm seeing an ad on TV for some upcoming movie, I'm like "OH IT'S FROM X RAY DOG! Oh and this one is composed by Immediate Music \o/)
Hum.. getting to the point, so obviously I did for Arashi, 'cause nothing amuses me more to have songs related to Arashi that i can listen to randomly and I will remember some crazy stuff from their TV show (mainly). Also as most of them are in English, I can secretly squize them in the playlist at work, and be thinking about Arashi without my coworkers thinking "Ah, it's Fanny and her crazy Japanese again" XD
And well... IT'S FUN!
Any help in completing this list will really be appreciated.
Meaning, if there is a song you're searching for, you can still comment here, and I will try my best to find it (because I just love that XD), it would be best to provide me with complete informations of what you're searching for (like "XXXX no Arashi" episode XX minute XX).
Also people might read and help find it. The more we are, the more informations we'll get.
And also if you know of a song which appears sometimes in Arashi entertainment world and that isn't listed (neither in the request list), please feel free to tell me about it (if you have the mp3, it's better, but there's no need to, I'm a search freak, I'll find it by myself anyway (I went as far as buying the single once because it was really not findable XD)).
And lastly, OBVIOUSLY, I'm not including the opening themes using Arashi songs (like "Fight Song" etc...), because er... everyone and his dog know what it is and has it XD
Also, I'm still "in the process" of catching up all Arashi stuff
And OF COURSE, I haven't gone hunt crazy as far as listing all freaking song that is used in EVERY single episode of G no Arashi or anything, I searched for the recurrent ones, or those that really marked me. But as stated above, if you're searching for a particular one, just ask ^^
Oh and yeah... CURSE JAPANESE INTERTAINMENT FOR NOT CREDITING THE MUSIC THEY USE IN THEIR END CREDITS OR THEIR OFFICIAL WEBSITES!!!! Not even the composer of the opening theme >< I've never seen that in France (actually, I think you would end up in front of a tribunal for not crediting XD Even if you've bought the rights XD). That would have helped me A LOT @#£$%§!!1§!!

See top of this post if you want to request.
I would also really appreciate, if in the process of helping researshing, you redirect people here. First because it took me months to gather all of this, and second, because this way, if anyone wants to contribute, it'll be easier and I would be able to keep on updating this post :)
