Yukihiro Takahashi


I've always admired him since the Sadistic Mika Band, years ago, and he struck me then as being a really good drummer. It's his simplicity that gets me.  He was the drummer of Yellow Magic Orchestra (YMO with Ryuichi Sakamoto and Haruomi Hosono) and the singer in most of the tracks.

In addition to his activities in Y.M.O., Beatniks, reformed Sadistics Mikaela Band, Sketch Show and Pupa, he has been producing many solo works. 

Here a list of some of his most beautiful songs, in my opinion. 

Something in the air




Now and then




Disposable love


Murdered by the music


Betsu ni


Still walking to the beat


I like the Wright brothers, but no airplanes


Out there
