I bought a lot of Japanese CD's.
I have 4 Michelle Gun Elephant CD's now.\
Everything I'm posting now is from a few Japanese soundtrack CD's I picked up as well. Despite one song being in English and by a famous American lead singer, it was originally asked by the studio for the lead singer to create a song for the movie. This lead singer is Peter Cetera from the band Chigaco who launched a solo career where his popularity was unrivaled in Japan where he made several singles for movies.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_2yoUPTiOg
Next comes from Resurrection of Golden Wolf. The artist was a popular singer. I'm not so sure she qualified as an idol ( I don't think so). This movie turned me on to her music. She's got a real classic rock vibe to her. This song wasn't on Yusaku Matsuda's memorial CD that I bought to my regret, but its much still an enjoyable CD.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PKyF8zbiMw
