Japanese figure skater ensnared in fake-music scandal

Star Japanese figure skater Daisuke Takahashi, bronze medalist in 2010, does his skating to “Sonatina for Violin,” by the famous Japanese composer Mamoru Samuragochi.

But Mamoru Samurogochi was disgraced in a bombshell New York Times report Thursday.

Mamoru Samuragochi, the famous Japanese composer, took credit for most of his major compositions even though they were written by someone else. He also allegedly faked his famous hearing disability, which apparently made him some kind of “Mr. Holland’s Opus” story in his home country.

Even though Samuragochi is a national disgrace, there’s not enough time for the skater Daisuke Takahashi to re-work his routine. He will skate to the disgraced song “Sonatina for Violin.”

Samuragochi is the famed composer of Symphony #1 Hiroshima, his defining work.

The Daily Caller would like to suggest a new song that Daisuke Takahasi can skate to instead of the one by the disgraced composer:

“Hail to the Redskins” was composed by Washington Redskins bandleader Barnee Breeskin between 1937-1938 and its lyrics were written by Redskins team owner Corinne Griffith, wife of beloved Redskins owner George Preston Marshall.
