Oricon Top 30 Charts – Week 9

3 03 2010

Another week , another new no.1 as boyband Hey!Say!Jump! crash straight into the top spot with their new single Hitomi no Screen. It’s not too bad of a song but it’s nothing special either. AKB48 dropped from no.1 to no.5 and sold 22,223 copies of Sakura no Shiori in their 2nd week bring their total up to 340,051. I think it’s a bit impossible for them now to try and catch up with sales for KAT-TUN’s single as they’ve gone over 400k but to be the 2nd highest selling single of the year so far is very good for them. Expect KAT-TUN to relinquish that spot once Arashi release a single.

There were 7 new entries inside the Top 10 with H!P Mano Erina entering at no.10 with her best song in a while. Actress Kii Kitano came in at no.7 with Sakura Saku. A nice song by her and I enjoyed Backborn’s song at no.2. Kana Nishino is at no.3 continuing the great run she’s enjoyed lately after the success of Dear…/MAYBE and Motto. My favorite songs in the charts are all outside the Top 10 starting off with GoGo….I mean Chiaki Kuriyama at no.11. She has a surprisingly good voice. Every Little Thing and The Brilliant Green also get new entries in the Top 20 at no.16 and no.17. Two great songs to listen to and I would have liked to see them a bit higher in the charts.

I can’t believe that terrible rumba song by Kiyoshi Hikawa is back in the Top 30. It annoyed the hell out of me last year but it must be popular to move back up the charts.
