Tetsurō Oda (織田 哲郎, Oda Tetsurō, born March 11, 1958) is a Japanese composer, record producer, and singer-songwriter.

In the late 1980s, Oda gained prominence as a songwriter. He composed over 50 top-ten hit singles on the Japanese Oricon chart during the 1990s, including 12 of which have sold over 1 million copies.[1] At the commercial peak of successful career, Oda produced a string of popular hit songs with artists like Zard, Wands, Deen, and Field of View.[2] He also discovered and collaborated with Nanase Aikawa, one of the best-selling Japanese female pop icons from the latter half of the 1990s.

Oda embarked on his own solo career since the 1980s, and achieved mainstream success thanks to the contributions to other artists. As a recording artist, he is best known for the chart-topping single "Itsumademo Kawaranu Ai o", which was released in 1992.[3]

In 1990, Oda won the 32nd Japan Record Award for the song "Odoru Pompokorin", co-written by Momoko Sakura and performed by B.B. Queens.[4] In the history of the Japanese singles chart which started in 1968, Oda has been the third best-selling composer behind Kyohei Tsutsumi and Tetsuya Komuro. Accumulated sales of his compositions released as singles have been estimated at over 40 million units as of 2008.
