Naoko Kawai’s performances are always a joy to watch. this was her 1985 Kouhaku performance. notice how Koji’s guitar caught fire (yes it did!) and startled the ever-so-sweet Naoko. she retreated with grace (smile still hanging on her face), and then re-emerged to take the stage when the commotion was over. just like a pro.
note to Ranbi: hey, can’t recall if you’ve sent me this song before? i want and can’t find on iTunes!
