Yellow Magic Orchestra! :D

Oriental Magnetic Yellow— made up of legendary composers Shinji Hosoe, Takayuki Aihara, and Sanodg— also have a really great paro-cover called “Due”.

My personal favorite song from YMO is probably still Kai-Koh, it sounds so...absolutely timeless. And while my translation skills are almost nonexistent, lyrically it sounds like it’s something of a depressing song, a nice companion to the satirical Kimi ni Mune Kyun.

Also got a little playlist attached if anyone wants more from both YMO and OMY!
