Overdose (オーヴァードーズ) is a 1994 album by Pizzicato Five. It was their first full-length album after parting with founding member K-Taro Takanami.[2] Setting a trend that would exist in later Pizzicato Five albums, Overdose is themed around a famous city, in this case New York City.[3][4] Musically, the album delves in soul music, containing several references to Stevie Wonder, most prominently the harmonica solo of "On the Sunny Side of the Street".[5] Overdose produced three singles: "Happy Sad", "Superstar" and "On The Sunny Side Of The Street". The song "Airplane" was later redone on the 1996 EP Sister Freedom Tapes, titled as "Airplane 96".[6] Several tracks from Overdose appeared on the 1995 compilation album The Sound of Music by Pizzicato Five.[7]
