OFF COURSE's hit song "Ai wo tomenaide" to be the theme song of FujiTV Spring 2016 drama "OUR HOUSE"

The theme song of upcoming FujiTV Spring 2016 drama "OUR HOUSE" which begins its run from 17 April at 9pm on Sundays, has been announced to be "Ai wo tomenaide", the hit song from 5-member band OFF COURSE 37 years ago. The band which featured members such as Oda Kazumasa and Suzuki Yasuhiro, were active from 1970 to 1989 and had released many hit songs during this period. This is the second time since 1977 NTV drama "Himawari no Ie" that a OFF COURSE song has been used as the theme song for a drama.

"Ai wo tomenaide" was first released as the band's 15th single in 1979 and will be reprinted in CD format for the first time on 11 May as a limited edition. The song had been covered by various singers over the years including Saijo Hideki, Okamoto Mayo and Makihara Noriyuki. The coupling track for the CD single will be "Utsukushii Omoide ni" which is the same as the original record released 37 years ago.
