What is your favorite Stereopony single? Between November 2008 and November 2012, Stereopony has released a total of twelve singles. Among these songs, “Namida no Mukou” stands out since it is Stereopony’s highest ranking song ever on the Oricon chart, peaking at the second position. Other than “Tsukiakari no Michishirube,” which peaked at number eight, there is no other Stereopony song has broken the top ten like these two. Here’s a list for comparison (Source: ORICON STYLE).
1. Hitohira no Hanabira (2008) – 25
2. Namida no Mukou (2009) – 2
3. I do it (2009) – 13
4. Smilife (2009) – 20
5. Tsukiakari no Michishirube (2009) – 8
6. Hanbunko (2010) – 21
7. OVER DRIVE (2010) – 28
8. Chiisana Mahou (2010) – 23
9. Tatoeba Utaenakunattara (2011) – 52
10. Arigatou (2011) – 26
11. stand by me (2012) – 30
12. Just rock with me (2012) – 68
As you can see, Stereopony’s singles sales had the most success in 2009 and 2010 (let’s not count November 2008), but these rankings should have nothing to do with influencing what people’s favorite Stereopony single is, right? Or could there possibly be a connection? Let’s find out.
Personally, my favorite Stereopony single is “Tsukiakari no Michishirube.” This was the first song I ever heard by them, and I was immediately hooked when I watched the music video. Even without the video, I still think it is a solid track and would be near the top of everyone’s favorite list (if not at the top). The video concept, fashion choice, photography, and excellent overall design of everything is a huge plus and what makes this single stand out from the rest to me. It is no wonder how this single was able to peak at number eight on the Oricon chart. I actually wonder why it did not rank even higher like “Namida no Mukou.”
