Take me out to the bowling alley
In 2019, Kuwata Keisuke took his love for bowling to a new level by putting his name and face on a national bowling tournament, the Kuwata Cup. Bowling aside, the legendary artist also formed the special new unit Kuwata Keisuke & The Pin Boys to release Kuwata Cup 2019's official song Let's Go Bowling, which is basically an entire song dedicated to the virtues of bowling. A year later, the Kuwata Cup is back, and so are Kuwata Keisuke & The Pin Boys!

While Let's Go Bowling is a fun jingle, it's impossible to take a song too seriously when it opens with the lines "I like bowling, I like bowling." Kuwata Keisuke & The Pin Boys' wonderful second single, however, is far more than a novelty theme song. The bouncy and retro pop rock Kanashiki Pro Bowler is classic Kuwata Keisuke, the kind of hearty, upbeat number that summons both a smile on the face and a pang in the heart.

The lyrics of Kanashiki Pro Bowler are still themed around bowling, but this time, Kuwata likens the sport to life and expresses the bittersweet sentiments of the "Little Sad Bowler." The rolling cries of "spinnin' round round round…" at the song's end are simple yet evocative of how life spins in circles, and the line "Never be ashamed of a gutter ball because strikes aren't everything" is just downright poetic.

Who knew bowling could yield such great music?
