Ve Belief in Nahseen

Technopolis / Yellow Magic Orchestra

The sorta-kraftwerky Japanese technopop group Yellow Magic Orchestra formed as a one-time studio project in '78, but were soon just so darned sorta-influential that the three original members (joined on stage by a large synth-twiddling backup band) stayed together until '84, parting ways on sorta-friendly terms. Haruomi got the cat, Yukihiro got the samples, and Ryuichi gets to see the kids on the weekend. This track is off their second album, and is quite representative of what might be termed their "NES Final Boss Theme Music" period.


Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence / Ryuichi Sakamoto

So where are they now? Well, that happy vibration in your pants may just be Ryuichi. He's doing ringtones. Also the occasional movie score...this track is an early one from the '83 film Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, in which he pulled double duty as music-writer-guy and leading man opposite David "I could act my way out of a Labyrinth" Bowie.

I think the width of the comment box is large that's why sidebar don't get space and it jumped to bottom

other probable reason which i'd experienced is that if you use large size pic in terms of dimensions... will lead to jumping of picture

another reason could be your posting dimension of large....

i'm really sorry that rite now i can't able to fix your problem b'coz of time constraint.... i'm very busy with finding a job for me....

i'd given 4 interviews but could'nt make it...

take care...
