Driving Music (What is the name of the song on car commercial?) Vol. 62


A few days ago, Shigeaki Miyazaki (better known as ASKA from a fabled duo CHAGE & ASKA) has been arrested for drug possession. Last year, Chage (real name Shuji Shibata) and Aska delayed their reunion concerts for health concerns. Some reports noted that Aska's using drugs but the singer denied the claims. Now, the 56-year-old singer secretly possessed drugs in violation of Japan's drug control laws.

After his arrest, it seems that Walt Disney Studios Japan is delaying the release of the Blu-Ray/DVD collection of anime movie works by the legendary Hayao Miyazaki. If that wasn't enough, the collection will no longer have the Chage and Aska song titled "On Your Mark". They're also stopping shipments of the 2005 Studio Ghibli special shorts DVD, which also comes with the same song.

Universal Music announced that they're suspending shipments and recalling goods by Chage and Aska, especially those goods by Aska himself, following his arrest.

Listen up Subarists, you may be familiar with Chage and Aska as those who did commercial songs for Subaru models in Japan, namely the Impreza and the Vivio kei-car, from the 90's. In this Driving Music segment courtesy of yours truly, car enthusiasts from all over Japan should better hunt some Chage and Aska songs heard from Japanese car commercials in the past so before those corporations start pulling out some Chage and Aska hits following Aska's arrest, find those songs while you can. Here are the list...

1) No No Darlin' by Chage & Aska

2) WALK by Chage & Aska

3) Sons and Daughters by Chage & Aska

4) なぜに君は帰らない by Chage & Aska

5) Say Yes by Chage & Aska (not from a Subaru commercial but actually, it came from a Mitsubishi Grandis commercial since 2004)

6) DO YA DO by Chage & Aska (again, not from a Subaru commercial but it came from a Toyota Sprinter Carib commercial since 1990)

Find these songs before they're removed forever following Aska's arrest and they can make a great addition to your driving music playlist! Perhaps that's the reason why it's called DRIVING MUSIC, I'm hunting for songs came from car commercials from around the globe.

Driving Music from Leopaul's Blog is the segment where solves every car enthusiasts' questions about the title of the song of car commercials...with the risk of MATCHED THIRD PARTY CONTENT on their status. Acknowledge or dispute, it's your choice.
