Madonna for a Change
Reuters features a story today wich adds a few more details and tidbits about Madonna’s song “Miles Away” that will be used as the theme song of a Japanese TV drama next month:
“A ballad from Madonna’s upcoming album will provide the theme music for a new Japanese television show, the first time the pop diva has licensed a tune for a TV drama here.
The song, “Miles Away,” will be used for the show “Change,” which is scheduled to begin airing in April. It is taken from Madonna’s “Hard Candy” album, which is set for release here April 30.
The show stars local heartthrob Takuya Kimura in the tale of a small-town elementary school teacher who is suddenly – if improbably – propelled into the position of prime minister of Japan. Madonna met Kimura when she appeared as a guest on the his “SMAPxSMAP” variety show in 2005.”
