TUBE -- Beach Time

Well, with Summer 2013 on our doorstep, it's time to open things up with a TUBE song. I have to say, though, that "Beach Time", TUBE's 7th single, isn't quite up on the same level as "Season In The Sun" or "Summer Dream", but it still has that wonderful feeling of Maeda, the 80s and the hot season. Written by singer-songwriter Tomoko Aran(亜蘭知子) and composed by Tetsuro Oda(織田哲郎), it was released in April 1988 and went as high as No. 4 on Oricon. I did see TUBE perform that very song on a number of "Best 10" and "Top 10" shows, but I think at Kuri, the other two big hits that I mentioned were the go-to TUBE songs for karaoke.
