Eiichi Ohtaki 大瀧 詠一

Kimi wa Tennen Shoku 君は天然色

The best of Japanese pop song! This one of the Ohtaki's most popular song is included on the album "A long vacation". Lyricist Takashi Matsumoto said everything he saw had lost its color after losing his sister. The lyrics reflect his's feelings for her. Amazingly, the sound is a one-shot recording like Phil Spector did.

Tatsuro Yamashita 山下 達郎

Ride On Time ライド・オン・タイム

Tatsuro Yamashita's first big hit, a very popular and iconic city pop song! You can feel the uplifting feeling from the start of the song. Not only Tatsuro's voice, but also Minako Yoshida's chorus is wonderful. And don't miss the soul-style slow number on the B-side, Rainy Walk.
