逆鱗 - FISH STORY (1975 edit)
The main song in film, Fish Story, titled, Fish Story, performed by the ficitonal band, Gekirin, as it was presented in the 1975 recording, is already interesting within the context of the movie because of the lore attached to the song, how it was made, and such.
But if you take out that relation, forget the ghost story behind it, forget the monologue that was spontaneously injected into the song. It still stands alone, as a bit of a cool, yet funny track. It just amusing how they completely silence the guitar solo, which is sought to be the climax of most rock songs.
The song is saying as if: “Haha! Fuck you! how are you enjoying your 1min of silence?! Guitar solo? lol fuckers, you’ll never know if it was awesome or not. you don’t get to hear this shit!”
but of course, as I mentioned, the movie had very different takes on that matter (i particularly like the ghost story), and you can hear the full track on the soundtrack, as well as an alternate version sung by Kazuyoshi Saito. magic lost. But I like thinking that this was a strange creative (loosely using that term) way of expression, and not, some sappy hack story.
The movie isn’t all THAT good either, unless you really, really like Tabe Mikako. Plus Nao Omori is in it, always an interesting guy to watch.
