Eurobeat legend Dave Rodgers shares an updated English version of the opening theme for Ultraman Tiga
Musician and composer Dave Rodgers has released an updated English version of the song “Take Me Higher” which was the opening theme for Ultraman Tiga on his official YouTube channel, which you can check out below. Original performed by Rodgers, the Japanese language version of the song performed by the band V6 for the original series reached #1 on the Oricon music charts in Japan at launch.
Ultraman Tiga was the first entry in the franchise after a 15 year hiatus when it debuted in 1996, running for 52 episodes and spawning several movies and additional appearances. Most recently, Tiga was featured heavily in 2016’s Ultraman X The Movie: Here It Comes! Our Ultraman. The show was eventually dubbed by 4Kids Entertainment for their Fox Box block of programming for broadcast in the U.S in 2002. Due to low ratings, only half of the English dub was aired.
Aside from composing the theme for Ultraman Tiga, Rodgers is a well-known Eurobeat artist, having brought global attention to the music style with his most popular song “Deja Vu” from the anime Initial D, which has become synonymous with the Eurobeat genre and inspired several covers.
The new English version of “Take Me Higher” is available now for purchase and streaming online on all platforms.
