hero problems

K was listening to music while doing the dishes.

I did NOT marry K for his taste in music.

Shudder. It's shocking!

It's mostly Japanese folk music like this:


Aren't you lucky I found one with English subtitles?

He has one cd I approve of- the Rocky soundtrack.

Anyway, I was half listening as I was watching tv when....

Ehhhhhhhh???

Footloose?? K has the Footloose soundtrack???

It just didn't seem the kind of movie he would be into. And especially not one he would've been into as a teenager when it came out.

I thought he was listening to this:



I asked how he knew the song and he said huh? How do YOU know it?

Well, derrrrrr Footloose? Kevin Bacon?

Huh? Footloose? Huh?

Turns out K wasn't listening to the Footloose soundtrack.

He was listening to the School Wars soundtrack. School Wars is a 1984 tv drama about a group of boys who go to a low level high school and get into gangs. They are turned into a national championship winning rugby team by an amazing and unconventional coach.

That sounds more like K's kind of tv.

But the song???

K: Oh, that's Katsuragi Yuki's song Hero.



H: She must have recorded a Japanese eversion as that's definitely an English song.

K: Nope, someone must have recorded her song in English.

So we both got out our phones to check- Bonnie Tyler Holding out for a hero- 1984.

Katsuragi Yuki Hero- 1984.

Hmmmmmm........ inconclusive.....

We played the songs at the same time- identical. Well, you know, except for the language issue.

Does she have any other songs? I asked.

Yes, she's very famous for singing Bohemian.

Righhhhhhhht. Yeah, she's definitely known for her original songs then.

Poor K looked deflated.

Ahhhhh, hmmmmm maybe it was an English song first... but her version is better!

I guess even if Bonnie Tyler sings the real Hero, Katsuragi Yuki will remain K's hero!
