"Polyrhythm" is a Japanese song, performed by Perfume, that was used in Cars 2. It starts right after "You Might Think", when a forklift at the World Grand Prix opening ceremony bangs the gong, and ends after Lightning McQueen finishes talking to Francesco Bernoulli. It was used in the film when the production team searched for a Japanese song to use for some of the scenes set in Tokyo.[1] John Lasseter was reported to say at the premiere, "The moment I listened to 'Polyrhythm,' I loved it. It was like falling in love."[2]

Lyrics

Japanese

とても大事な キミの想いは
無駄にならない 世界は廻る
ほんの少しの 僕の気持ちも
巡り巡るよ

くり返す このポリリズム
あの衝動は まるで恋だね
くり返す いつかみたいな
あの光景が 甦るの
くり返す このポリリズム
あの反動が うそみたいだね
くり返す このポリループ
ああプラスチック みたいな恋だ

またくり返す このポリリズム
このポリリズム このポリリズム
