If you were making a ski/board movie what would be the first song to feature?

1. Luke – camera slowly focuses on 2 boarders climbing off piste towards summit, pan out,… during intro of song,.. then show boarders pumping down the mountain to main section of Linda Linda (Rinda Rinda) by The Blue Hearts.. gets the movie pumping right off! Great for a Japan themed snow movie!!! :-D

2. 佳彦 – 恋人はサンタクロース

3. Taketakeo – Want You Bad/The Offspring

4. 弘恭 – ゲレンデがとけるほど恋したい

5. 健司 – レディーガガ・ポーカーフェイス

Congratulations!!

and the most popular song chosen was….. Koibito wa Santa Claus! Check out the film clip for the song below in all its 80s skiing glory:
