They didn't base it on anything except singles I guess

New single seems to have been met without about the same amount of hurrah as Color Bars

Definitely exceeded my expectations but I was expecting another TV theme catering to old people so a spy song was a pleasant surprise.

Agreed. The new single is actually pretty good. Although Ringo's spy themes in general are among my faves. I honestly don't think she has a bad one in the bunch.

Debuted at 34 with 1300 sales, a fraction of her usual.

Just goes to show how much her songs rely on the products they are for and that's just fucking sad.

And yes, sales ARE a part of the conversation nowadays, because that's all she seems to give a fuck about.

Which chart is this? Oricon digital singles weekly chart has her debuting at #14 with 7,100 sales. (Source).

Still pretty weak for her standards I suppose, and it makes it her least impactful single since Jiyuu-dom I would guess. (Which is a shame considering the quality of this single otherwise). On the other hand album sales will probably be much stronger on the strength of it being a 'Best' album and the nostalgia factor for Disc 1.

I was basing it on last weeks billboard 100

That's a fucking massive discrepancy in count though, what the hell.

Kouzen no Himitsu PV is officially up!

Anddd not region-blocked. Watch here.

[edit]
Wonder what's up with the 'cinnamon' theme in the credits?

I have to say, the PV does make me appreciate the song more.

Ahhh another video that's exactly the same thing. Guess it goes with the song.

Style over substance again for the PV. The song is essentially a compilation of Ringo cliches. Guitaaaaarrrrr
