A cover of the Vapor’s 1980 hit Turning Japanese, featuring Kirsten Dunst

Thursday, 27 April, 2017

Turning Japanese was originally recorded by British band, the Vapors, in 1980. While it is a tune everyone seems to know, Australia was one of the few countries where it reached number one on the singles charts.

Thirty-five, or so, years later, US actor Kirsten Dunst featured in a cover of the venerable one hit wonder. I think I’m drawn to her version of the song by the blue wig she wears.

Interestingly, the Vapors, who disbanded in 1982, reformed in 2016, not long after the rendition of their hit featuring Dunst was made.
