The Peanuts

Oh, dear! You must not have a compatible version of flash!

The Peanuts
Best of Mothra
soundtrack compilation CD
(Nippon Columbia, 1997)

The tiny girls who sang for モスラ (Mothra), and communicated with her telepathically, were pop stars in non-monster reality as The Peanuts. I've always loved their singing (they sound like a Japanese version of The Barry Sisters, to my ears), and finally found a CD with quite a bit of it from various films featuring モスラ. Today's song is from the 1964 film 『三大怪獣地球最大の決戦』(Ghidrah, the Three-Headed Monster was the US title, and it was not a translation of the Japanese title, Three Giant Monsters: The Greatest Battle on Earth). Totally badass movie poster after the jump!
