Since her debut in 1976 with the album "Japanese Girl", she has released many great albums and is still active on the front line. This is a 7-inch single released in 1986 by composer/singer/pianist Akiko Yano. Both sides were released only as single, and both were co-arranged by Ryuichi Sakamoto. the A side is a very colorful and bright pop song. The B-side is noteworthy for its 80s New York electronic thunder that is directly related to Ryuichi Sakamoto's “Mirai-ha Yarou” and "Neo Geo" images. The combination of Akiko Yano's melodic sense and the backing track is a perfect match.
