The song was used (without authorisation) as the theme music for the opening animation to the 1983 Daicon IV science fiction convention in Osaka. In 2005, as an homage to the Daicon IV animation, the song was used as the opening theme of the television series Densha Otoko, which features an otaku as the main character. As a similar homage, it has served as the opening song for Otakon's AMV contest since 2008. It also appeared, with authorisation and credit, in a 1982 advertisement for the Toyota Celica XX.
Indian actor and producer Shahrukh Khan covered this song in British and American version of the television series Galaxy World of Alisa, the ending theme of few episode.
