Turn Japanese is an EP released by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes on February 21, 2001 by Japanese label Pizza of Death Records.[1] The EP is made up of covers of songs from the 1960s and 1970s.

The majority of the songs were previously released, with "The Boxer", "You've Got a Friend" and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" each originally appearing on 7" singles (Garf, In Your Barkalounger and Elton respectively) in 1999. All three later appeared on Have Another Ball. "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times Are A-Changing" were both unreleased at the time, with the former appearing a month later on the album Blow in the Wind and both appearing on the Bob 7" later in the year.
