    General CommentI wonder if it has any meaning outside of the geographical context. I mean, sure the Sea of Japan is an actual sea, but maybe its about feeling lost in the vastness and foreigness of a city like Tokyo or Kyoto...sort of a follow up to their work with Lost in Translation?

    General CommentThe lyrics don't mean much to me but really this is their best song since "Lucky and Unhappy" at least. I think while Talkie Walkie was good, the songs on the album may not stand the test of time, whereas this really is such a repeatable song, it's so basic yet so catchy and memorable I'm sure it will stand as one of the band's highlights. If only JBD could stop singing in English and keep it up by singing in French.
