Default The Japanese Oldies thread

OK
I really love City Pop, and some of you also do, but this is not the only good thing about old japanese music!
So it's about time for us to have a thread to discuss japanese music from the 80s, 70s and etc

and I still don't consider 90s music as old!!!!

but that's my opinion, post whatever you like

Recently I've been listening to Monta & Brothers

This is the only song that I know from this band, but I like it so much:

And a little bit of Yumi Arai:

Her first 3 albums are definitely in the top 20 of my list of best albums ever

My knowledge in Japanese oldies is sorely lacking, but I have been listening to a lot of SUGAR BABE lately.
SB

I've also been listening to After Dinner, Mariah and of course EMF-favorite Jun Togawa.

Mariah

If you like Sugar Babe then the next logical step is it's members solo stuff.

Taeko Ohnuki



Tatsuro Yamashita (Godly)



Eiichi Ohtaki (Sugar Babe producer/Happy End member also)

I always think that After Dinner is from the 00s because it was around 2006/2007 when I first downloaded one of their albums, and the files didn't have any year of release, so I thought it was contemporary
Now about Mariah I never heard of them before, but it's so good! I loved it
And Bongo is right, the members' solo work are so gooood
these last years Tatsurou Yamashita became one of my top favorite artists

Mariya Takeuchi, she's actually married to Tatsuro Yamashita mentioned earlier.




So into Chakra and Mishio Ogawa lately. Less extreme Jun Togawa, but the sound is probably just as rich.

Mariya Takeuchi

I swear I thought Iggy Azalea had sampled Yashiro Aki when I first heard this song:

Just for reference:

Also, let me show my love for the queen Akina:

I've always thought this song was from the anime Cat's Eye, because of the "mysterious girrrrl~" at the beginning

G-Schmitt is pretty cool.

You could be right! They definitely sound similar. Not to veer too off-topic, but that song was written by Charli XCX — a self-professed fan of Jpop. She even collaborated with Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary on a song (admittedly, not a very good one).
CXCX
