The world of music has a wide range of topics in which to draw inspiration; whether it be political oppression, young love, or just a boy named Sue, music always has something to say.

Well, music is an interpretive art form, so “Turning Japanese” means different things to different people.
But honestly, who is buying that!?
The Vapors got away with writing a song about adjusting the antenna and we have nothing but respect for them because of it. So below are the lyrics and video to The Vapors quirky ode to relaxing in a gentlemanly manner “Turning Japanese”.
