Toyota’s Corolla an inspiration for Ami Suzuki’s new song 'Kiss Kiss Kiss'

25 Comments

Singer Ami Suzuki, 27, saddled up to Toyota’s new Corolla Fielder X 202 at the Shibuya-Ax live house this week to promote “House Nation,” a club tour which starts on Saturday and at which Suzuki will be a DJ.

Suzuki said her new song “Kiss Kiss Kiss,” which will be used as the theme song for the upcoming tour, was inspired by the Corolla. She said: “The song is about going for a drive at night to enjoy the evening view, with a cool guy in a suit, and wondering what might happen.” When asked if it was based on her personal experience, Suzuki got shy and said it wasn’t.

Suzuki also commented on the battering the music scene has taken recently following singer and actress Noriko Sakai’s indictment for possessing and using stimulants, and the images broadcast of her DJ performance. “Since then, people have become concerned and asked me if I’m OK, just because I’m a DJ. I want to show that clubbing is not about all those scandals.”

I can't believe I read this. Is this what passes for entertainment news now?

I mean really...inspired by a car?!? This reeks of unabashed product placement.

Nothing but vapid drivel. Must be a slow news day for the entertainment desk.

Toyota makes great cars, so it's no surprise they inspire songs.

steamy windows in the back seat or a bit classier and go to a love hotel before he drives his corolla back to his family? I'd imagine the guy in a suit is in his late 40's since she is already 27.

and wondering what may happen well, you will ask him leading questions trying to judge his annual income and what percentage of that you may expect to take over when you give up your 'singing/DJ career' to have his kids. Then you will decide whether or not to put out.

The Beach Boys were inspired by a car to write Little Deuce Coup, so I imagine a Corolla...ok, maybe not. Is there a chance for this song to get recalled too?

Cars are a great source of inspiration for songs...

Toyota Prius

“The song is about driving to an Obama rally, with a shrill Canadian woman with a buzzcut, and wondering what might happen.”

Daihatsu Move

“The song is about going for a drive at night to enjoy dinner at Saizeriya, with Miyuki from the pachinko parlor, and wondering what might happen.”

I can imagine being inspired by a Ferrari, but a Toyota Corolla making you want to write a song?

Since dancing to "DJ music" is illegal from 1am-5am that yakuza must be involved in the event. Unless they stop the party at 1

And no doubt she has a new Toyata in her garage for her well planned product plugging.

The man pays for dinner, the girl puts out and then they probably never see each other again. Absolutely gripping.

The music scene has taken a battering because Noripi had a miniscule amount of spped and she had ben filmed doing a DJ performance. Is Suzuki-chan ok? The logic astounds me..

How in the hell can a Toyota Corolla be an inspiration for anything? BORING. "Little Red Corvette", yes, Toyota no.

"Hello, Im a Japanese pop star. Ill do anything if Toyota pays me, no matter how much I have to sell-out! Yay Capitalism!"

This says a lot about the Japanese music scene - people would rather have their music inspired by the most boring car on the road than by stimulants.
