And the Best Perfume Song of 2009 is…

Pardon my fashionably late announcement, but New Years was such a blast for the staff we nearly forgot about the poll! The turnout was a lot bigger this year as well. In any case, here are the results!

OneRoom Disco

OneRoom Disco

Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll! Here are the complete results of each song:

OneRoom Disco = 114 (24%)
NIGHT FLIGHT = 94 (20%)
edge (⊿-Mix) = 73 (15%)
The best thing = 68 (14%)
I still love u = 59 (13%)
23:30 = 18 (4%)
Kiss and Music = 16 (4%)
Zero Gravity = 14 (3%)
Negai (Album-mix) = 11 (2%)
Take off = 3 (0.6%)
Speed of Sound = 2 (0.4%)

What do you think? Did the results surprise you? As the sole new single Perfume released in 2009, I think OneRoom Disco was a worthy choice for the #1 spot this year; it didn’t top Oricon for nothing after all. The highly stylistic and catchy NIGHT FLIGHT is also a good candidate in the top 3, and personally my favorite track in the Triangle album. The original edge already made the  love the world single seem like a double a-side and broke a zenith of records when it released in 2008, as yet the edge (⊿-Mix) just added on as one of Yasutaka’s best and most badass creations for Perfume to date.

I’ll wrap up 2009 in the next blog post. Sit tight and stay tuned!

An Update from the Perfume City Office

Greetings, Perfume City-zens!

First I would like to thank the Perfume City head-honcho, ekuseru, for giving me the opportunity to better serve the Perfume fan community by updating the site blog in his place. Due to his busy schedule, he was not able update the blog as much as he wanted to, but that’s where I’ll help out. Until further notice, I’ll be your navigator in the latest Perfume news, as well as adding some personal editorial/opinions/reviews regarding releases, media, and all that jazz.

Who am I? Well, I go by the alias of Meirin on the Perfume City BBS, or simply Mei elsewhere. I’ve been a Perfume fan since their ~Complete Best~ release came about. I was born & raised in California, obviously currently residing there and attending university. On the side, I own/participate in other blogs with various themes, from anime to idol voice actors to J-pop and so on.

But enough about me! How about some much needed Perfume news. Continue reading “An Update from the Perfume City Office”
