I don't like the cover. There's a cheap and nasty blur effect around the ball.

Most of the comments I've read through Google translate are really positive.

Will be interesting to see how the other numbers are as ITunes seems to be SR's strongest market for whatever reason.

It's an annoying world cup song, I don't think it's surprising that it did well. Those songs usually do well!

Important question - Is that Kishidan song a cover of the Jihen one of the same title? =p

So I'm wondering how many times would Japanese football fans have to listen to this on NHK during the World Cup? Shuddering...

Considering how old the song is, did not expect to see Pharrell still in the Top 10 even on iTunes. Or MMZ's Infinite Love for that matter.

EDIT: Unless this is one of those first week records, in which case damn people must have really loved Happy.

I believe Asahi is also covering the world cup, so you have OPTIONS to not listen to it iguess.

NIPPON


I might not be the hugest fan of NIPPON, but the PV sure does charm the pants off me (kudos to Mistatwinkies/Xephyr for noticing it up).

Again, Kronekodow have given a preview version of the PV that is practically almost the whole song.. go figure.
