Picture this 4 Japanese Bhoys sitting in the dressing room on 2nd February before kickoff.
60 thousand fans singing the chorus of Turning Japanese by the Vapors.
What a welcome that would be.
Anyone know the DJ that does the warm up songs on match days ?
All the best take care Alex.

  • One of the more misinterpreted songs of all time, word was that "Turning Japanese" refers to the Asian facial features people get at the moment of climax during masturbation. In a VH1 True Spin special, they asked The Vapors about this song, and they explained that it is a love song about someone who lost their girlfriend and was going slowly crazy. Lead singer Dave Fenton said: "Turning Japanese is all the clichés about angst and youth and turning into something you didn't expect to." It was inspired by Fenton's relationship problems.

I’m not sure that we should be highlighting people’s racial origins even in a positive manner its irrelevant what anyone’s background is they are Celtic no more no less.
As for The Vapours I always thought the B side was a better song

Hail Hail, the Celts are here,
What the hell do we care,
What the hell do we care,
Hail Hail, the Celts are here,
What the hell do we care now..

For its a grand old team to play for,
For its a grand old team to see,
And if you know the history,
Its enough to make your heart go,
GO-OH-OH-OH!

Thats a better song .....

Hi Winter, listen to the chorus of the song. And I don't know what Chinese, School,or Google has to do with it.
Aye notap I know the vapours song very well and have loved it for many journeys around the sun, just to avoid any confusion my post wasnt in reply to yours or anything to do with yours I actually posted the youtube video of the song on another thread the other day chinese , school and google and what they have to do with it is....something I might disclose after I've spoken tae ma lawyer as it would seem that some are offended by a wee tune from long ago, but each to their own and no-one not even an offended one could make me call a snowman a snow person but what's that got to do with the rising price of cheese? Nothing at all or has it?🙄 snowflakes keep falling on my head 🎷🎶🎷🎶🎷🎶🎷🎶🎷🎶🎷🎶
