Happy New Year, everyone! How was your New Year's Eve?
Now here's something you don't see every day. I have posted this Japanese version of "Next 100 Years" by charity boy band J-FRIENDS on this blog in the past, but that was about two years ago so you may not have seen it or stumbled across it before. I think this show is from New Year's Eve 1999. Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora wrote the song, with Koshi Inaba providing the Japanese translations. The J-FRIENDS "cover" was technically the first version of "Next 100 Years", since the Crush version didn't come out until June 2000.
Here's Bon Jovi performing "Next 100 Years" at Tokyo Dome in 2001 as part of the One Wild Night tour.
May 2011 be a prosperous year for you. :)
