Oricon Jpop Charts: Week 20

27 05 2010

Here’s a look at this week’s Oricon Jpop rankings, with links (when possible:

Oricon, Week 20

1. (N) Going — KAT-TUN
2. (N) Devil Side — VAMPS
3. (N) Nakama — Ketsumeishi
4. (N) Thousand Enemies — Girls Dead Monster
5. (2) Arigatou — Ikimonogakari

Turning in a No. 1 this week is pop/rap group KAT-TUN with their song going. The song mixes fast-paced electronica with a mix of boy band and rapped lyrics.

This week’s charts adds a little guitar power to the Jpop charts, and The Vamps’ Devil Side packs a Marilyn Manson inspired vocals with some fast-paced guitar riffs. The video strongly emphasizes gothic/erotic imagery with good old fashioned glam rock ideals – ie brooding rock star surrounded by sexy groupies.

Taking fourth is Girls Dead Monster with Thousand Enemies, from the Angel Beats soundtrack (link is non-video). Remeniscent of 90s pop/rock, the song is catchy and fun, if a little (not a lot) generic.
