TriviaEdit

  • This is Morning Musume's first single to debut at #1 on the Oricon weekly chart.
  • Iida Kaori commented on the single in a YouTube video series counting up to Morning Musume's 50th single.[1]
  • This was Morning Musume's highest selling single until "LOVE Machine".
  • Morning Musume was awarded Best New Artist Award of the Year at the 40th Japan Record Awards for the song.[2] They were also invited to the famous New Year's song show Kouhaku Uta Gassen for the first time, after which they performed at every year until 2008.
  • The song was also extremely popular at karaoke, placing #1 for eight weeks on the Oricon Karaoke charts.
  • On Utaban, Iida Kaori was made fun of in a humorous way regarding one of her lines in the music video. When she sings "nee waratte" (wont you give me a smile?), she makes a face the hosts thought was priceless. It made her famous at the time, as the comment caught on.
  • The Morning Cop ~Daite HOLD ON ME!~ movie was completed and released earlier than the song, so the song was actually in an incomplete state. Compared to the single version, the movie version has differences in the mixing job as well as the take on the vocal parts and the member who's in charge of certain parts; i.e. 2 chorus B-melody is sung by Yasuda in this version.
  • Very few Morning Musume songs are made into remixes, but this song has four: "Daite HOLD ON ME! (Morning Cop Version)" in the re-release, "Daite Hold on Me! -Sexy Long Version-" from the Morning Cop soundtrack, "Daite HOLD ON ME! (N.Y.Mix)" on their second album, and a trance remix in the album Club Hello Trance Remix!.
