Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence was a 1983 film focused around prisoners of war in Japan, which starred David Bowie. Ryuichi Sakamoto’s soundtrack garnered a fair amount more attention than the film itself, winning a BAFTA, which is fair enough with it’s incredibly unique instrumentation and dynamics. Features David Sylvian’s lyrics and vocals on Forbidden Colors.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 8th November 2016

This is the soundtrack to the 1983 feature film Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. Sakamoto, who was in the now-legendary New Wave/synth group Yellow Magic Orchestra, composed and performed the entire evocative score. Additionally, Sakamoto starred as a Japanese POW camp commandant, along with British POW's Tom Conti and David Bowie. As good as the film is, the soundtrack is stunning, especially the title track; it's haunting, mesmerising, and powerful. Wonderful music whether or not you've seen the movie.
