The Story Behind Human Touch?

Post by PowerdGNFlag » Wed Oct 27, 2021 5:50 am

Is there a source documenting the story of how Warren Wiebe and his song Human Touch got tapped to be Gundam X's ED for the majority of its run (albeit half of that being in translation)? From what I gather the other artists who did English songs for Gundam in the 90s had direct connections in Japan (Jacob Wheeler was working in Japan during the relevant period and answered a call by Sunrise for songs, Donna Burke has been living in Japan since 1996) but there's no obvious connection between Wiebe and Japan, and from the liner notes of the single it was entirely produced and recorded in Los Angeles. And while we're at it, was it always meant to switch to a Japanese version of the song after the first cour or was there a poor reaction to the original that Sunrise felt the need to switch it to something else.
Well, I guess I'm a nobody...
