"Sometime Samurai" is a song written and performed by Japanese music producer Towa Tei and Kylie Minogue for Tei's album Flash (2005). It was originally recorded as a demo alongside "GBI (German Bold Italic)" in 1996, but remained unreleased for eight years until Kylie had the opportunity to re-record her vocals in 2003. Before its inclusion on Flash, the song has been mentioned on Kylie book Kylie: La La La. The song, written about Kylie's then boyfriend, photographer Stéphane Sednaoui.

The song was released in Japan as a radio promotional single to promote the release of Flash and since has become one of Tei's most successful songs on radio in Japan, reaching the top ten on the Tokio Hot 100 radio chart. A music video was also made for the song, but did not feature Kylie because she was busy touring her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour.
