Tsunku believes in recycling

No I’m not talking about environmental awareness, I’m talking about Tsunku’s apparent love for reusing Morning Musume singles and using them as a source of resuable income. So here’s every Morning Musume single and the number of times it has appeared and on what it has appeared. Note that I’m not including any covers not done by Morning Musume such as Coconuts Musume’s cover of Summer Night Town or Tsunku’s cover of Memory Seishun no Hikari. Also note I’m including remixes.

My findings from compiling this list are the following;

  • The early singles are rereleased often.
  • A surprising amount of Morning Musume singles aren’t released on a studio album (8 of them).
  • It is possible you could own LOVE Machine in nine different forms by the end of this year, how crazy is that?
