>Denpa songs consist of music with lyrics and tunes that are extremely awkward and strange but people are still drawn to listen to it anyway, with the rationale that the music has "hypnotized" the listener, and that they are now under control by the strangeness of the song.

I love denpa but that's dumb...

>Denpa songs are often mis-characterized as cute and happy, since a large number of denpa music involve over-the-top moe themes which are extremely happy, cute and sometimes fast-paced, however this is not always the case, as they may also include much darker themes. One misconception of denpa music is that it is a type of "cute J-Pop", a label which is inaccurate since it is a largely underground trend, is not popular mainstream music, and has a completely different scene to that of J-Pop.

I feel like the writer has a misconception about the misconception. They're still Japanese songs composed using pop structures, even if the instrumentation is chiptune or gabber or what-have-you. The creepy themes sung with hyper-happy kawaii vocals in major keys is part of what makes it denpa!
