Godiego

is a popular group from Japan, consisting of Mickie Yoshino, Takami Asano, Steve Fox, Yukihide Takekawa, and Tommy Snyder. They have released more than 25 records. The group enjoyed brief success in the through their work on the popular Japanese television program '''' . The group's disco based soundtrack soon won over a cult following, earning Godiego chart success with the single "Monkey Magic", the group's largely popular title theme, the LP ''Monkey'' and the single "Gandhara".

Though most of their hit songs include translated Japanese lyrics, almost all of the lyrics are written first in English.

Apart from their association with ''Monkey'', Godiego soon faded in the UK, but continued to release many successful albums in their homeland of Japan before announcing a split-up in 1984.

Godiego also performed some songs for the ''Galaxy Express 999'' anime series, most notably the eponymous end song of the 1979 film version.

Godiego reunited in 1999, and has continued touring.

An Orange Range cover version of "Monkey Magic" was featured in the 2007 INiS rhythm video game, ''Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2''. They also inspired the -Japanese band in name and performances.
