NanoPoblano Day 8 – A Scary Throwback


Tell me, what does domo arigato remind you of? For me, apart from being Japanese for “thank you very much,” there’s this frightening little bit of nostalgia, complete with Dennis DeYoung in a lavender suit.

If you really want to say it with a Japanese accent, elongate the first “o” (both are long “o”s as in the word “toe”) in domo and the “o” at the end of arigato (a-ree-ga-to). Seriously, try it. You’ll surprise yourself.


This short yet sickly 80s-style sweet post was brought to you by Nano Poblano!

  2. I remember this song, what fun


  3. As soon as I hear that, I think of the Styx song Mr. Roboto, too. Absolutely classic!


  4. I remember that song very well Linda. But that phrase reminds me of Richard Chamberlain in Shogan… Beautiful film.xx


  5. Seems like every time I see or hear the phrase, that song pops into my head and I find myself singing (in my head, at least) that part of the song.


  6. Linda! That song is epic. 😛
