In an interview
with Andrew (your webmaster)
David said: "Oedo Nagareboshi IV is a funny simple melody that was first recorded as
a studio project for some talented young musicians at the "studio musicians programme" at
the School of Music in Pite in the north of Sweden where both me and Anders sometimes work
as guest producers."
"I said to the students (with Puffy in mind) "Imagine this as a pop song
for two Japanese girls" and I started to sing this little composition in a furious tempo
with a high-pitched voice. They looked at each other thinking "what's wrong with this guy...?"
Anyway it went well and me and Anders are delighted to see that it went on to be used
for this animated series. It looks really great with the animations!"
