The Golden Rock song of the day - 4/20/07

Today's song of the day is again inspired by a movie (when is it isn't?). From the excellent Japanese sports film Ping Pong, this is the film's theme song by the broken up techno group Supercar. I first heard this song in the trailer for Ping Pong, only to find out the film is a much more cerebral experience than its energetic theme song would suggest. From the film's awesome soundtrack and the album Highvision, it's Supercar's "Yumegiwa Last Boy."

Why? Because it was a very rare instance where a film's theme song hooked me as much as this song did. Because Supercar was one of the coolest techno group to come out of Japan. Just close your eye and get into it.

Here is the trailer, where it all began.
