Yes it’s that time of the year again where I ask you to choose the best H!P-related single of the year. Then after you have done that I tell you just why you are wrong. WRONG I TELL YOU! Ahem. Anyway this year it’s interesting to note that H!P’s flagship group has actually had the least singles released this year out of the five main groups/singers. Although Morning Musume did at least get get two albums as well. In terms of number of releases the year belonged to Japan Record Awards 2010 New Artist Award nominees S/mileage who had four singles in the year plus a joint single with Oha Girl Maple. C-ute also got four singles, Berryz Koubou three (although one was a double A-side so I’ve counted it as two seperate singles in the poll) and Mano Erina also three. Plus there were solo songs of a sort for Sugaya Risako and Okai Chisato this year. So just who will get the Morningtime Best H!P-Related Single Award for 2010? In 2009 the winner was Morning Musume with Shouganai Yume Oibito. They narrowly beat…err…Morning Musume into second place with Nanchatte Renai. Buono propped up the top three with MY BOY but this year they have just the single OUR S…sorry Our Songs in the running. Well all that was regardless as last year the best single was clearly Mano Erina’s Sekai wa Summer Party. Even if I wast the only fucker that voted for it. >.> Oh and besides Morning Musume’s best single of the year had been Kimagure Princess. Clearly! The year before I didn’t have a public vote (WordPress didn’t have a poll option back then. HA! Laugh at the frightening simplicity of the olden days). However I still gave the award to the lovely V-U-den ladies for their farewell single Nanni mo Iwazu ni I Love You.
So it’s over to you. Who will get the ‘People’s Choice’ award this year? (Hmm…I should have set up an expensive phone line, charged people to vote and then rigged it and gave the award to Ant’n’fuckingDec anyway). Use your vote wisely. Don’t forget people went through many hardships and fought long and hard battles to get every man, woman and child the right to a vote. Don’t waste it. Not that I think you will. I mean none of Guardians 4 singles got any votes last year so why should their one offering this year get any?
