used to be one of the weakest A-side. then so long! came along. also, note the difference in song quality when the center is someone they do not really care about vs they want to push (ignoring the fact that it may be rigged etc)
It may not be my favorite too but I really like this song, I think is mostly because of the video. I feel happy for Mayuchi for winning the tournament and I think she looks really happy on the video, I don't know haha.
@bondingo: wow you really think RIVER and Beginner beat the masterpiece that is Heavy Rotation? I just lol. AKB has done songs like RIVER and Beginner before and much better. And this song will probably always remain my least favorite single. However, if this is their worst single than thats pretty fucking incredible. I still like it, just not amazing relative to AKB standards.
