Oricon Top 30 Charts – Week 20

19 05 2010

Did we expect anything else than to see KAT-TUN riding high on top of this week’s new Oricon Chart. They destroyed the competition selling 230,452 copies of their song Going!. I’m not really that keen on it. They’ve released far better songs that this one. I much prefer the rockier new entry by VAMPS at no.2 – DEVIL SIDE.

7 new entries came into the Top 10. Last week’s no.1 by AAA slipped way down to no.20. Korean group Choshinsei has 3 new songs inside the Top 20 at no.13, no.11 and no.9. For idol fans, Mano Erina came in at no.10 with Onegai Dakara.. – not a bad effort. FUNKY MONKEY BABYS have an excellent song at no.6 with Taisetsu. All of my favorite songs in the chart seem to be out of the Top 10 with moumoon at no.12 with Sunshine Girl, Stereopony with OVER DRIVE at no.28, Diggy Mo’ with Stay Beautiful at no.29 and finally MAX with the Eurobeat song Cat’s Eye at no.27. I’m not sure if this is a cover of an old song or not. I think I’ve heard this tune somewhere before.
