It is a travesty that the image of Akina is usually linked with sadness because the media prefers to to focus on her “dramas”, ignoring the fact that she can actually be a very fun person.
She is one of the few singers I know (besides 河合奈保子) that can be seen happily singing along to songs of her peers while watching or dancing in the background. I chanced upon these two videos yesterday on Youtube and I just couldn’t wait to share it with all of you because she is having so much fun! I felt so happy watching her singing, dancing and executing some “so bad it’s good” moves with some of my favourite 80’s pop idols.
These days will never resurface again … sadly … but thankfully, we have these memories to exhibit the “recklessness” and fun of youth. Hope you have as much fun watching as I did. This is definitely one of the most fun I have seen Akina had. Those old glory days … Oh! And I forgot to add that she looks so beautiful too.
