So did everyone watch the Golden Awards? Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were hilarious am I right? Did you enjoy the show? Well did you ever think that the show has some connections to Jrock or anime? Well I am here to say it is true well let me show you the connections.
A bit of background information
First we are familiar with the Anime “X” right? One ED of the series is titled “X” and performed by the legendary band X-Japan. X-Japan’s leader and co-founder is Hayashi Yoshiki or Yoshiki as his fans know him. Yoshiki is not only the leader of the group but also the drummer, pianist, composer, and songwriter. He has composed epic ballads to epic rock songs; he also composed and performed by the request of the Japanese government a classical song in celebration of the 10th anniversary of Emperor Akihito’s enthronement. He has discovered and signed many jrock groups in Japan (i.e. Luna Sea, and Glay). In 2005 he composed the theme song for the world’s fair expo in Japan. He has come to the US and composed “I.V.” for the film Saw IV.
Which brings us to the Golden Globe Awards; Yoshiki has composed the theme for the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards of 2012 and was asked to return to compose the theme for the 70th annual Golden Awards of 2013. If you are familiar with his music I think you can hear his special touch to the theme. Also you can buy the song on iTunes after 1/15/13 so look for it.
