Welcome to Episode 2 of Holly Jolly X'masu! In this episode, I discuss several Japanese Christmas songs that became hits after their inclusion in commercials.

As promised in the episode, here's a link to a YouTube video with a collection of the Japan Rail commercials with Tatsuro Yamashita's "Christmas Eve." The first one is the 1988 commercial with the breakdancing.

Also, here's a scan of my copy of the 1999 KFC exclusive CD, "Tatsuro Yamashita Presents X'mas Songs."

Lastly, I've added a button to my Ko-fi page. If you'd like to support me one cup of coffee at a time, a donation is only $3. Any donations received will be put towards purchasing new Japanese Christmas music to review for future episodes. Thanks!
