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.

  1. Answers to questions:

    q1: debuted in the top 20, if i’m not wrong.

    q2: akai tori negata fly away.

    q3: i was introduced to akina nakamori by default, back in 1983. a classmate of mine has a yoshie kashiwabara album, and i loved it. went to the local record store to buy a tape for myself, and they were out of stock. the lady suggested i buy this akina nakamori album instead, prologue. liked the cover, so i bought it. i fell in love ever since. i took japanese language classes (never amount to anything because i was too young and ignorant) because i love japanese songs so much, triggered by akina’s music. i moved to new york beginning of 2000, and when i was poor and down after sep 11, her songs pulled me through, especially the 1st utahime album. after more than 20 years of her music, i can truly say, her voice touches me the most, still. i may not know what she’s singing about all the time, but the feelings injected in her voice is enough to send me to a place i’m familiar with, not so alone.

  2. Yes, Q2 is indeed a give-away. Ha! Ha! Have fun and Happy Belated Birthday to Akina on this board, though we did celebrate by singing mostly your songs in our Karaoke session yesterday!

  3. hi pat,

    your answer to qn 1 is not wrong, but vague…your answer to qn 2 is incorrect…

    however, thanks for sharing with us about your experience of getting to know Akina =)

  4. Hey Eugin,

    I think I know the answer to Q2 – I’ll email you that. As for Q1, I will need to do some research. I know its peak position but I will need to double-check the debut position.
