Ahh...the summer definitely landed in Toronto this past weekend. Although humidity in my ol' hometown will never match the ferocity of the air moisture in Tokyo, there was that feeling here that had me opening the windows and switching on the old noisy fan in my room. I was actually working up a bit of a sweat as I was sleeping last night, but thankfully, I didn't do what I had usually done on my ancient futon in Ichikawa....leave a giant J-Canuck-shaped sweat stain when I woke up in the morning. Let us leave that rather horrid image behind us, shall we?
Anyways, with the summer and the Pan Am Games in town right now, it is very much the time for another TUBE song...or perhaps to be more accurate this time, a song by The Tube as they were first named 30 years ago. My history with Nobuteru Maeda's（前田亘輝）band spiritually started with "Season In The Sun", their 3rd single in 1986, so it was a surprise to find out when I had bought a VHS tape of TUBE's music videos back in the early 90s that there were two previous singles prior to "Season In The Sun".
