The Golden Rock song of the day - 3/30/07

I thought long and hard about today's song. It was originally going to be another song (which has been the case a few times), but upon looking around Youtube, I had found something that caught my attention more. So today's song is a bit of an oldie (available on a compilation album) and was rediscovered from a cover done by Masami Nagasawa (although as the protagonist of the drama, not as Masami herself) last year when TBS adapted the story into a drama. It's Hiroko Yakushima's "Sailor Suit and Machine Gun," from the movie of the same name.

Why? Because it's an oldie but goodie. Because while Masami Nagasawa's vocals are flat as any other pop idol, Hiroko's version is more expressive, more alive.

(It's the first song in the clip)

And here's the 2006 cover by Hoshi Izumi (Played by Masami Nagasawa)
