"Big in Japan" is the debut single of the band Alphaville. It is from their 1984 album Forever Young. The title comes from a phrase Big in Japan, which was used to describe Western bands who are popular with Japanese audiences while garnering little attention in their home country.
The single was a great success in many countries, including Switzerland, Germany, Sweden and Turkey. The song also reached #1 on Hot Dance Club Play in December 1984.
The above video is just a nice performance :)
