Kiyoshiro - Summertime Blues

Japanese Rocker Kiyoshiro Imawano sings cover of Eddie Cochran's Summer Time Blues. It's a protest song about proliferation of nuclear power plants in Japan.

This was probably performed in the late 80's or early 90's, when there were only 37 nuclear power plants in a country smaller than the state of California and at least a couple of decades before the recent Fukushima nuclear power plant disasters.

Red hot summer is getting closer
Everybody's going to beach to have some fun
When I was swimming in a deserted sea
I found a nuclear power station
What they are here for, I don't understand
In this small Japan, Summertime blues


Black hot smoke is out from the chimney
Tokai Earthquake is coming closer
But they still keep on increasing
Nuclear power plants are increasing
What the hell they're built for, I don't understand
In this small Japan, Summertime blues
