General Comment Male prostitution? I really wouldn't know. I can only tell you: it's easy, easy when you're big in Japan. General Comment I think this song is about male prostitution as well.
General Comment Eventually, I listened my year-long-best live in Istanbul last month! There was a naked Asian young lady cartoon on the stage.
So it should be related with sexuality. Song Meaning i'm surprised that something that i thought i knew for sure from 80's that is under consideration.
Well guys, my opinion about the meaning of the song is that is about prostitution, not male, but regular female prostitution.
Everybody who's more than 50 years old, knows that in 80's while you were nobody at US or europe, you were somebody very importand in japan, just for the reason that you are from west, due to the maddness of japaness for the west culture.
Hundreds of girls where exported from europe and US in order to became anonymus whores for few days or weeks in japan and come back home a little bit more rich.
In 80s a couple of hours with a beautifull european or US girl was several hundreds of dollars. That is the real meaning of the song Big in Japan It was also the group's only UK Top 75 hit, reaching No.
The song also reached number one on the Hot Dance Club Play in December The group had a Roland SystemM which they first used to create the bassline.
The timing of the song was influenced by " The Safety Dance ", changing the speed to double-time , halfway through the song.
The melody was developed by all three members of the band, working in their provincial home studio. Marian Gold developed most of the lyrics while going to a dentist.
The theme was based on two friends who were involved in the sordid drug scene of Berlin's Zoo station. The song tells of such lovers who fantasize about being drug-free.
The refrain " big in Japan " symbolises this idea of being successful in another world. That line has a certain meaning.
It means that if you're a complete loser, you're telling other people, 'I'm not a loser because in Japan I'm really big. The phrase was inspired by the name of the real band, Big in Japan , whose album Gold had recently bought.
As you know, there's a considerable musical market in Japan. If you wanted to become famous, what you should do was to form a hard rock group and then release an album over there; it would definitely sell well As the song reached the top of the German charts, the number one song which it displaced was " Relax " by Frankie Goes to Hollywood whose lead singer, Holly Johnson , had formerly been in Big in Japan — a remarkable coincidence, according to Gold.
The video was directed by Yello 's Dieter Meier. Alphaville re-released the song, with new remixes, in to coincide with the release of their compilation album First Harvest — In , Guano Apes released a cover version as their lead single for their second album Don't Give Me Names  on 12 April The music video shows the band performing in an empty arena, followed by a fan trying to locate the band.
