Default Ringo pens another song for someone else. [Yoko Maki - Saisaki-zaka]

It seems Ms. Ringo is at it again, writing songs for other people, this time, actress Yoko Maki. It seems that the song will be the end theme to an upcoming movie called "Valley". Ringo wrote the lyrics and composed the theme, Yoko Maki is on vocals. From Kronekodow:

It is out in June.

椎名林檎、真木よう子さんに楽曲提供
椎名林檎が、女優の真木よう子さんに楽曲を書き下ろしました。

その楽曲は、真木さんが主演の映画『さよなら渓谷』のエンディングテーマで、真木さん自らが歌います。椎名林檎は、映画を拝見し、イメージに合わせて楽曲を制作しました。
タイトルは、『幸先坂』(さいさきざか)。映画とともに、ぜひ楽曲もお楽しみいただければと思います。6月22日(土)に公開です。

Maybe Ringo considers Yoko Maki the Shiina Ringo of Japanese film industry.

Yoko Maki has a voice that reminds me of Kyoko Togawa. In other words, nothing special but gets the job done without obvious force and reasonably pleasant.

Hahaha, I really enjoy the subject chosen for this thread. We are so negative.

Movie's called "Sayonara Keikoku" (Valley of Goodbye), song's called 幸先坂 "Saisaki-zaka" - Good Omen Hill.

TJ's latest song's called Bon Voyage "bon voi-ahzh" - Good Journey. It doesn't reflect the quality of the song.

And what's there to be so positive about when I predict more pansy music like Carnation on the way. I'd probably be excited if the song title's Reincarnation or something.

I'd take more Carnation over more Jiyuu e Michidzure though.

Breathlessly anticipating the sequel song "Differentiate".

Was this a motivational video at the annual conference of Japanese Cisco Systems employees?

YouTube video of Maki Yoko was Shiseido brand "INTEGRATE" CM in 2008.
This CM song was dubbed by Natsuki Mari who acted later years of protagonist in drama Carnation.
The song referred "The Hit Parade", theme song of music show in 60s.
