Has anyone seen Linda Linda Linda?

After watching the Wii launch videos, Minh asked me if the guy interviewing people for Joystiq was from Control-Alt-Chicken. I had no idea what she was talking about so I used Google to find that Control-Alt-Chicken is a geek cooking show that’s part of Revision3, a new video project by the creators of Digg.

I checked out the latest episode (Crab Cakes!) and immediately recognised the opening song as Linda Linda by The Blue Hearts as featured in the videogames Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan (a recent purchase by Jason).

I remembered seeing a page with links to all the Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan songs on Cracked Rabbit Gaming, but the Linda Linda video they link to has been removed. I searched YouTube for another one, and came across this cover by Japanese school girl band Paranmaum from the movie Linda Linda Linda.

It looked pretty good and is billed by Steven Venn on its IMDB page as:

What Josie and The Pussycats should have been.

Well, I liked Josie and The Pussycats, and if this is even better, I want to see it. So… has anyone seen Linda Linda Linda?

  1. Nope, haven’t seen it. Interested to. 🙂 Let me know if and when you plan to watch it.

    As for Osu…. Arg! Slow slow slow courier……. been more than a week now…. anyday now.. anyday……… . Maybe I’ll have to ask to play my friend’s copy again for a quick fix….

  2. I’ve been meaning to watch it. I should point out that the main singer is actually Korean (poor Bae Doo-na! She looks petrified) and the story is she’s a transfer student somehow roped into the band (as you do).

    “I love you all.”

    Not. (I think that’s what she says just before she starts singing).
