Last Christmas preview

Last Christmas DL

Today's Jpop music clip is a remake of Wham's "Last Christmas". The Jpop version is performed by Oda Yuji, who is a famous singer/actor in Japan, although you wouldn't think him to be a singer by this remake. hehe.
In November/December 2004 Fuji Television aired a television drama called (wouldn't ya know it) "Last Christmas". Oda Yuji scored the lead role & was also called in to sing the theme song. Incidently, the television drama Last Christmas is what opened the flood gates on my love for japanese tv dramas. Why? It has cute Japanese girls, 80's music (???), love triangles & most of all it is set in Tokyo during Christmas time....ahhh how romantic.
I implore all of you to download this song. It is soooo goddamn bad it's good. I couldn't stop laughing when I heard it man. That is the reason why I'm into this crap in the first place, to have a good time, so without further ado...Oda Yuji singing Last Christmas!!!! KITE KUDASAI !!!!!
