Hiro Takahashi (高橋 ひろ Takahashi Hiro?, August 10, 1964 – November 4, 2005), born as Hiroyuki Takahashi (高橋 裕幸 Takahashi Hiroyuki?), was a Japanese singer, lyricist, and composer.


On the music program Hey! Hey! Hey! Music Champ, he mentioned he composed two songs at the age of 11 - Heart of a Woman and Northern Town.[citation needed]

In 1984, Takahashi started his work entering the band Popsicle. In 1987, he joined the band Tulip, beginning a more professional musical career. He played a major role in the band's development, writing some of its hit singles.

In 1989, after the breakup of Tulip, he rejoined Popsicle temporarily.

When his recording label shut down, he became more active as a composer. He composed numerous soundtracks for anime, stage, television, and radio. The music for the program Nippon Hoso Show Up Nighta was also his work from 2005 until 2008.

He died on November 4, 2005, at the age of 41.[1]
