"Scorpio" is a single released by South Korean rock band TRAX. It was recorded and released in two versions: Japanese and Korean.

The single was produced by X Japan's Yoshiki, who also composed the music to the title track, and includes a cover of X Japan's "Tears" in either Japanese or Korean. Yoshiki later helped write the lyrics to TRAX's second Japanese single "Rhapsody".

The Japanese release included a 20-page color booklet. The Korean version has the additional track "Over the Rainbow" in two different versions.


The Japanese version of the title song has the first and second verses in English and the chorus and third verse in Japanese. The Korean version also has the first and second verses in English, but the chorus and third verse are in Korean.

The Japanese version has no parental advisory for coarse language. It has four instances of profanity ("fuck" is said three times and another word is bleeped).
