Akina’s most well-known 2 songs

from my "interviews" with the Japanese 大学生 that I meet in school…about 5 of them…, I asked them the following qns:

 1. Do you know who is 中森明菜?

2. If yes, name me 2 songs that you know of hers.

and the result is that all 5 of them know who is 中森明菜…some said idol..some said she won the Record Taisho before..others said that she sings beautifully!

and interestingly, all 5 of them could only name the following 2 songs of hers:

1. Desire


2. 飾りじゃないのよ涙は


This clearly shows (together with last year’s 好き唄 that these 2 songs remains to be the best-known songs of Akina by any japanese..even @ the age of 20-26…all 5 of them could hum the tunes and lyrics for me…which I think is not bad!

They often sing these songs in カラオケ.

Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

One thought on “Akina’s most well-known 2 songs

  1. Ha! Ha! Good to see that you have already starting the prowl. Grrr …!!

    And were they surprised that you know so much about Akina or Japanese entertainment, or are you keeping your cards close to your heart?

    I can so imagine you asking those questions and then fishing out RR and Best Finger and said "Look! New Stuff. Wanna Listen?" Great work!

    Can’t wait to hear more …
