No.1 and 5 are the result of reading Haruki Murakami's "1Q84". No.1 appeared in this novel several times, from the first scene. The Well-Tempered Clavier works is the main character's favorite. He said that it is heavenly music for mathematicians.

When I listened to No.6, I felt the commonality between the album "Sensuous" which No.6 is included in and Radiohead's album "Kid A". Both of them are new, unique and keen, nevertheless, composed wonderful comfortable sounds.

Though I haven't surveyed all of Mr.Children's (Japanese temporary long-populated pop group) songs, If I can choose their best one, I think No.10 is the best.

I think that the bass line of No.13 proves the theory "Music doesn't depends on formula". They were out of "theoritical tone" but so cool beyond description.

No.19 is one of a compilation which my music-buff friend selected for Jazz novice (me). Their perfect chorus works made me feel that is something special.

No.20 - RIP and I wish you and Paul have already restored good relationship.
