"Hiroshima" Japanese version released.
« on: October 16, 2008, 10:41:09 AM »
Ben has just released Japanese version of "Hiroshima" yesterday. He sang whole the song in Japanese, like as "Song for the Dumped".
The title is "Hiroshima -Stage Kara Massakasama-" (=fall off the stage).

(Sorry, there's no song sample. I will post the link here when I find it)

Interestingly, this song is now only available for Japanese cell phone. It's released as a "full song ringtone", and I had to download it from my cell phone. The lyrics is similar to the original, but sooooooo funny. His Japanese pronunciation is extremely perfect, as always ;D

I cannot wait to hear this.

Cannot. Wait.
As you know I hang upside down in a dark closet like a bat until summoned.
