TAKE ME HIGHER
Sung by: V6
Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)
Version 1.00

Note: This song takes a tad of explaining. In 1997, V6 member Nagano-kun starred in "Ultraman Tiga." This was actually a pretty big deal. "Ultraman" is one of those long-running sentai series in Japan, like Power Rangers or Masked Rider. They're really popular, especially for young boys, and Nagano-kun was THE Ultraman Tiga. (Heck, little boys still recognize him because of that...) Anyway, TAKE ME HIGHER was the V6 single that was used as the opening theme song. But if it weren't for the constant references to "Tiga" in the lyrics, you'd never guess that it was anything other than a well-written V6 Eurobeat hit. MAN I love Avex Trax... home of techno dance goodness for all of Japan...
