Olympics theme song for Japan

with 2 comments


Reports released news that J-rock group Remioromen‘s coming single, Motto Tooku E もっと遠くへ will be used by Fuji TV as the official theme song of their Olympics Games coverage. The single will be coming out end of next month.

The single’s B-side is “Orchestra,” which is also tied in to the Olympics. It will be used as a support song by the Japanese branch of Coca-Cola, which is one of the Olympics’ sponsors this year.

Saw how this group rose in fame from their song features in dorama “One Litre of Tears” and I do like their style of laid back pop. Hopefully they’ll be able to catch the Olympics wave and set their fans and listeners on fiery passion!

And this song surely depicts Japan’s desire and dream to go further in the world stage, and shine in the coming Olympics at Beijing…
