So their report about it was made only as late as that year? :P :ohmy:

It does sound suspiciously like Moonlight Densetsu.




Quote:
Once again, according to the same report, the Japanese music industry is pretty small, and everyone knows and works with each other. Once you start going around and making accusations – even if you’re right – it’s going to hurt your career too in addition to the image of the industry as a whole. Considering how common backroom deals are in Japan, I don’t think anyone wants this laundry aired.


Too bad Pharrel Williams doesn't work in Japan. :ohdear:

^ I think that's the song that inspired Moonlight Densetsu

This is probably the most interesting post I have ever read on this site, together with the Saban Moon mess.
I think "plagiarism" is too much of an exaggeration here. "Moonlight Densetsu" was clearly inspired by both tunes linked in the second article, but ultimately goes a different route and is different enough.
It reminds me of the similarities between Lady GaGa's "Alejandro" and Ace Of Base's "Don't Turn Around". They're very similar, you can see the clear inspiration, but at the end of the day, they're different songs.
Very interesting info though.

It's easy to see now how Moonlight Densetsu became such a popular karaoke song in Japan if this was such a popular beat to use in their music.

This WikiMoon article about it says "the melody of the song [Sayonara wa Dance no Ato ni] was used as the basis for 'Moonlight Densetsu'" (word bolded by me):

http://wikimoon.org/index.php?title=Sayonara_wa_Dance_no_Ato_ni

^ So it neither describes it as "inspiration" nor "plagiarism." :lol:

Since you politely asked, these articles explain how Moonlight Densetsu came to be.

Aaand, up goes article three (out of four) for the Moonlight Densetsu series!
What Do We Know About DALI, the Band Behind Moonlight Densetsu?

It's weird how much there is to talk about this one song. There's just so much we don't know about the song and the band behind it.
DALI is basically the perfect example of a one-hit wonder. o_O

Today, in fact!

Why Wasn’t Daria Kawashima Credited for Moonlight Densetsu?

So now I think I'm finally done talking about Moonlight Densetsu. I hope.

Yeah, there seems to be a surprisingly high turnover rate for people associated with Sailor Moon becoming (or being) gravure idols.

Both Minako and Sailor Luna from the live-action PGSM are in that line, apparently.

Even Sae, the singer of its opening theme, has shot some gravure pics back then, not to mention Sugimoto Aya (Beryl), tho the pics she did when she was older can also be classified as porn. lol
