"Ai o Torimodose!!" (愛をとりもどせ!!?), also known as "YOU wa SHOCK" (YOU は SHOCK yū wa shokku?) from its refrain, is the famous opening theme of the popular Japanese TV series Fist of the North Star (北斗の拳 Hokuto no Ken?). The song's title means "Take back the love!!" in English and is performed by the rock band Crystal King (クリスタルキング Kurisutaru Kingu?). The verses are sung by Monsieur Yoshisaki (ムッシュ吉崎 Musshu Yoshisaki?) and the chorus by Masayuki Tanaka. "Ai o Torimodose!!" is featured as an extra "special BGM" in the PlayStation 2 version of the multiplatform Jissen PachiSlot Hisshohou! Hokuto no Ken video game and is also used as the opening for the 2005 Sega-Sammy arcade arcade game. Monsieur Yoshisaki sung the song solo for the movie Shin Kyūseishu Densetsu Hokuto no Ken: Raoh Den Junai no Shō.

Most recently, Hiromi Konno as Akira Kogami and Minoru Shiraishi as himself covered "Ai o Torimodose!!" under the name Uchoten (有頂天 Uchōten?) for the theme song of the Lucky Star OVA.

Lyrics Edit

YOU wa SHOCK
Ai de sora ga ochite kuru
YOU wa SHOCK
Ore no mune ni ochite kuru

Atsui kokoro kusari de tsunai demo
Ima wa muda da yo
Jama suru yatsu wa yubisaki hitotsu de DOWN sa

YOU wa SHOCK
Ai de kodō hayaku naru
YOU wa SHOCK
Ore no kodō hayaku naru

Omae motome samayō kokoro ima
Atsuku moete iru
Subete tokashi muzan ni tobichiru hazu sa

Ore to no ai wo mamoru tame
Omae wa tabidachi
Ashita wo miushinatta

Hohoemi wasureta kao nado mitaku wa nai sa
Ai wo torimodose

YOU wa SHOCK
Ai de yami wo kirisaite
YOU wa shock
Ore no yami wo kirisaite

Daremo futari no yasuragi kowasu koto
Deki wa shinai sa
Hikitsuke au kizuna wa hanarenai nido to

Ore to no ai wo mamoru tame
Omae wa tabidachi
Ashita wo miushinatta

Hohoemi wasureta kao nado mitaku wa nai sa
Ai wo torimodose
