And I think this question is kind of stupid.
Like people are saying this kind of thread is quite usual when an album comes out. I love every song on Shouso Strip, but can quite easily nominate a "least favourite": Tsuki ni Makeinu. Not because I don't think it's a great tune and a very clever transplanting of a Sebadoh type sound into a pop context, just because relative to the rest of the album it comes the most from Planet "Normal".

This (and favourite) track polls are only worth it once the album has been out for 3 months or so and it has had time to sink in, I'm assuming lots of these votes were from when it had pretty much just come out, I think it may look different now

This poll was posted two months after the album came out, so I think most of the votes are pretty measured.

I love Roudousha, whatever.

And hate Bonsai Hada. The one track I always skip.

I always skip Bonsai Hada too, but I don't really hate it. I'm just never in the mood to listen to that type of the song.

I don't really have a track on Sanmon Gossip that I HATE to be honest, and a lot of the tracks that I didn't really like before (Togatta Teguchi & Yokyou in particular) are growing on me.

Always makes me think WTF when people say they hate Bonsai Hada- the only post-KZK song that could easily fit on KZK (the overall most approved album on here) :-/ This is no exaggeration- it's what I thought first time I heard the song and it's what I think when I hear it now.

Where on KZK do you see that track? it might sound KZK-esque to you but it doesn't have a place on that album just because of that.

Ok- don't get me wrong here- there is no way to change KZK without it seeming blasphemous- hell, I thought it was awful putting Ichijiku no Hana as an extra on MoRA/Vinyl versions- it totally ruins the point of it being 44:44 and ending with Souretsu but that's beside the point.

If I had to choose an exact place it should go, I really couldn't. Perhaps after Kuki if I were to wank up the production a bit more.

The point I'm trying to make however is that the song is very in-the-same-vein as KZK, it is rawer than the rest of Sanmon Gossip, which is what makes it stand out like a sore thumb. What my main point is in the end is that it would fit better on KZK (if you didn't know KZK back to front and see it as a whole) than on SG.

This might just sound like me talking out my ass again (which it probably is) but it's just the way I've always felt about that song, and why it strikes me as strange that lots of people dislike it.

Tsuugou no Ii Karada for sure. Nothing to redeem it for me; the lyrics are annoyingly twee rivaled only by Futaribocchi's. And musically it's everything but the kitchen sink.

Sounds like everyone involved in it, both Ringo's vocals and the orchestra backing her, were going for "best song" and went about 5000000 miles over the top, and just ended up with "MOST SONG" :/
