Takeuchi Mariya

So I was in Shibuya at a Yakiniku joint with Mizuho getting bent off the brew when this song came on. I stopped & gigged for a minute & was like Mimi Chan who sings this song? "Takeuchi Mariya", she replied.

I was like damn man we gotta stop by HMV on the way to the station I gotta pick this cd up.
When we got to HMV we looked & looked but Mizuho was like, I forgot the name of the song & what album it was on. It's old I think my sister has an old MD with that song on it.
Disappointed we left & I was too drunk to walk down to Tower Records in the rain.
I was looking forward to a nice warm futon & a nap.

So the day before I left Tokyo I stopped by Tower & I just picked up a few random Takeuchi Mariya cds thinking, I know one of these goddamn cds has that tune on it! about NO

So if any of you out there can help a brother out with the name of this song & the album it's on HOOK IT UP. Needless to say I never got an MD in the mail from Mizuho... =(

And I tried my best to listen carefully to the video but my ears only hear Takeuchi Mariya San no blah rhapsody blah blah.


Jun'ai Rhapsody from the Impressions album

until I found the vid of Yoshizawa Hitomi singing the song I really didn't know what to look for, I heard it in a busy restaurant while I was eating & drinking playing in the background, halfway drunk...awesome

it's kinda cool seeing Yoshizawa Hitomi sing this tune, although the Mariya version is way better

Cool. How long have you lived in Japan? Love your description of the local area. I think I want to go there.
