Man, it's just Morning Musume being awesome. Coincidentally or not, their latest single has just debuted at #2 on the Japanese charts and achieved the best first-day sales the group's had for more than six years.

Can you explain why they mix English words into their songs?

It's fairly ubiquitous in Asian pop music. After all, white people are super cool, and we all speak English.

:/ Is that really why? Because white people are cool?

Haha, well, now we're just hypothesising. I'd say it's not actually about white people but about America, which is seen as popular and trendy worldwide, and certainly in Japan that's evidenced by the gratuitous use of questionable English in all sorts of contexts. And pop music is an American import and so I imagine English would be seen as simply the appropriate language for it. I know that in the case of rock music, the English language has tended to dominate even in non-English speaking countries (after all, as Tocotronic said, "über Sex kann man nur auf Englisch singen" [you can only sing about sex in English]). And then there's just the fact that English is the modern lingua franca and the main second language taught in Japan, and even though Japanese people suck at it, it's something they're widely exposed to. And of course, as with most languages, Japanese has taken on many loan words from English. So on many levels it's only natural to find English phrases in Asian pop songs—it's very much a part of their world.

But mostly it's because it looks cool.

not to mention the popular fashions for the younger japanese are heavily inspired by american styles, if not totally ripped from american styles. when people talk about japanese fashion though, they get caught up in the subcultures and seasonal items and totally ignore that.
