Hikaru Utada

In what may be her last single release before going into an indefinite hiatus, Japanese singer Hikaru Utada will release the theme song to Tomohisa Yamashita’s upcoming movie “あしたのジョー (Ashita no Jo)”, it was revealed yesterday, reports Daily Sports Online and Nikkan Sports.

It has been reported that the song “Show Me Love (Not A Dream)” is a rock song, and its dominant drumming beat could almost make one visualize that it was the sound of boxer Jo hammering away at a sand bag while his trainer shouts at him.

The song will be a track on Utada’s upcoming album “Utada Hikaru SINGLE COLLECTION VOL.2”, which will be released on November 24.

“Ashita no Jo” producers have been reported to have said they chose Utada because like Jo, who runs into the world to chase his dreams, the singer possesses a strong sense of individuality and power on a world scale.

    I love this, I also reposted this when I discovered the news. Really not a fan of the comic, but it’s worth the view for Yamashita san alone(^^) ne.

    Have you received your Johnnys mail about his world tour concert? God, why can’t he come to the USA for a concert, even if it’s a small one I’d defiantly make it.

    Enough of my ramblings hahahah have a great day Momo

      Yamapi looks cool in the movie!

      Except he’s going to be really busy next year if he’s on tour while the movie’s being released…

      Hopefully Johnny’s will give more groups the chance to go overseas, at least they’re taking a step forward with letting KAT-TUN hold a concert in Hawaii next year.

      Hope you have a good day too!

      Momo xoxo
