Hey Jude

From TV Pia 2011 3/2 issue:

On how Jun would like to produce Arashi members,

M: Sho-kun is doing various things but… I want to hear him play the piano. He’s probably reluctant and won’t do it, though (laughs). In a magazine photoshoot before, I listened to Sho-kun play “Hey Jude” on the pipe organ, but because I said that on various occasions, after that he’s closed his heart a bit (laughs). He’s cautious of me.

From Music Station 2010 7/9:

Sho talks about being a perverted pianist because he played the piano right after taking a shower, still shirtless. Then he gets asked what song he played.

S: … I wonder if it’s okay…

M: Please tell us~

N: He guarded it! That person guarded it!

A: Please tell us~

M: Please tell us what you played.

A: It’s important, you know.

S: It’s “Hey Jude”.

M: While naked.

From Arashi ni Shiyagare 2014 4/12:

Jun is trailing behind Miura Asami when playing The Beatles song intro quiz, so he’s given a chance to guess the next song and if he gets it right he’ll be given 5 points. His guess,

M: Hey Jude.

S: Ah! Wrong…!!

M: Ah wrong…!!
