Berryz工房×℃-ute「超HAPPY SONG」[edit | edit source]

  • Around April 2012, it was discovered that if the tracks "Because happiness" and "Shiawase no Tochuu" from ℃-ute’s Dainana Shou "Utsukushikutte Gomen ne"” album are played at the same time they make a new song.
  • On April 17, 2012 Tsunku admitted that he did it on purpose and he was going to reveal it at the Hello! Project Summer concert tour anyway.
  • On April 27, 2012, Tsunku gave an official name to the song, "Chou HAPPY SONG".
