I’m still feeling a little under the weather so I decided to pick a music video for today that pretty much speaks for itself. As you can probably guess from just watching, this video for Tomoyasu Hotei’s Battle Without Honor or Humanity was released to coincide with the release of the Kill Bill soundtrack.
Though most listeners immediately associate this song with Kill Bill, it was actually originally written for and used in another film, 2000’s New Battles Without Honor or Humanity. As any quick perusal of YouTube will show you, this is not only one of Hotei’s most popular songs but also one that exists in several different version. The video above last for 3 and a half minutes. The version of the song on the Kill Bill soundtrack is a minute shorter. I’ve come across versions on YouTube that last anywhere from 6 to 15 minutes. Regardless which version you use, Battle Without Honor or Humanity is a good stripper song. Just saying.
This is also a song that’s fun to listen to while you’re driving, unless of course you live in a city with really bad traffic and are prone to road rage. If that’s the case, you might want to listen to something a little bit more calming.
Anyway, regardless of how good or bad your morning commute may be, enjoy!
