This marked the a new record, as they’ve become the first artist more than 20 years into their debut to monopolize 1st and 2nd place.

Mr. Children reminds me of my fave Taiwanese band, Mayday, which is not surprising as they cited Mr Chidren as one of their musical influences. Both are in >10 yrs in the industry and still going very strong.

i agree with this... both are legends in their respective industries.
yukkiz 16th-May-2012 10:54 am (UTC)

I don't surprise Mayday is Misichiru fan and list Misichiru as one of their musical influence
Their music and lyric is resemble .Lyric is honest and description with nice melody !

They 're really long live popularity in their country ! XD
