The Vapors - Turning japanese (video/audio edited & restored) GQ/HD

-

"Turning Japanese" is a song released by English band The Vapors, from their album New Clear Days, and the song for which they are best known. The lyric consists mainly of the singer talking about pictures of his love. Musically, it features an Oriental riff played on guitar.

Songwriter David Fenton explains: "Turning Japanese is all the clich├ęs about angst and youth and turning into something you didn't expect to."

The band knew they had a success with "Turning Japanese", so much so that they waited until their second single before releasing it, fearing that if they released it as their first they would become "one-hit wonders". They never matched its success.

The song enjoyed some sales in Japan after its great success in Australia, where it spent two weeks at No. 1 during June 1980.
