about

I've really been into Tokusatsu lately. For the uninitiated, those are live action superhero shows in Japan (which is where we got Power Rangers). I sampled the closing theme to GoRanger, which was written by Isao Sasaki, though I used an energetic live version.

Tokusatsu Heroes
words by Kyle & Ian
music by Isao Sasaki and Kyle

K: IAN!
I: What?
K: Ian, let me tell you about the best team of Japanese superheroes evar!! LISTEN!

Once upon a time, a bunch of normal teens.
Decided to go fishing in a radioactive stream.
Radioactive fish means radioactive powers.
They fight the evil Thrakkorzogs when it is after hours.
They wear multicolored outfits with a seafood theme
They have a sharktopus robot which runs on power steam.
World super-peace is their greatest wish.
They're the Super Sentai Underwater Team GoFish!

Chorus:
You have nothing to fear-o!
Let's give a cheer-o!
Let's strike a pose for the Tokusatsu heroes!
Kicking butt on a budget!
You gotta love it!
Tokusatsu Heroes, they can rise above it!

Ian: Uhhh, well, let me tell you about the one I, um, "saw".

There is a magic duo, their style is so def!
Their superhero names are simply Carlos and Jeff
They can stop all evil throughout space and time
And even put your fallen laundry back on its line!
They get their orders from the Chief, their master
and attack their enemies with the Sonic Deciblaster
They've defeated Satan, and stopped Hitler II's crimes
with the Sonic Warriors it's A-hole Bashing Time!

Chorus:
You have nothing to fear-o!
Let's give a cheer-o!
Let's strike a pose for the Tokusatsu heroes!
Kicking butt on a budget!
You gotta love it!
Tokusatsu Heroes, they can rise above it!

K:Ian, you've never seen a tokusatsu show before, have you?
I: No, and honestly, I don't understand why you have.
K:Maybe it's because you don't understand fun, Ian.
I: (sarcastic) Yes, Kyle. I don't understand fun.
K: (cutting Ian off) Well, let me help you by telling you about the other best Japanese superhero evar!!
I: Must you?

K: In the retrofuture year of 198-a-billion
There's an evil overlord and he's doin' some killin'! (I: retrofuture?)
Scooter Rider Hitman is here to save the day!
He'll use his uber mechascooter skills to save the day! (I: you just rhymed...)
His father was Scooter Rider Silver in the 80s.
Now his son has Scooter Powers! He's a big hit with the ladies! (I: naturally)
He's got wrestling lazors that he'll use for Superzombie zappin' (I: wrestling LAZORS?)
He's gonna save the futuretimes before they even happen!

Chorus:
You have nothing to fear-o!
So give a cheer-o!
Let's strike a pose for the Tokusatsu heroes!
Kicking butt on a budget!
You gotta love it!
Tokusatsu Heroes, they can rise above it!

K:You've really got to watch these someday, dude.
I: Yeah. No I don't.
