Top 10 Singles for 1994

1. Mr. Children           Innocent World
2. Kohmi Hirose         Romance no Kamisama
3. Ryoko Shinohara    Koishisa to Setsunasa to Kokorotsuyosa to
4. B'z                       Don't Leave Me
5. Miyuki Nakajima      Sora to Kimi no Aida ni
6. Yumi Matsutoya     Hello, My Friend
7. trf                       Survival Dance
8. Maki Ohguro          Anata dake Mitsumeteru
9. trf                       Boy Meets Girl
10. WANDS              Sekai ga Owaru made wa

A lot of new faces on this list at the time but Yuming and Miyuki are still there. I have a few stories about one of Tetsuya Komuro's "children", the technopop dance group, trf. The Komuro Family was one of the big things in J-Pop for a number of years during the 90s. And Mr. Children was making a huge splash on the scene. All of these people in the Top 10 started off my most recent phase in my J-Pop education. There are some of the other folks who didn't make the Top 10 but are still in my memories like ZARD, WANDS, and Fumiya Fujii.
