70s-80s JPOP anon 02/05/2022 (Sat) 08:26:48 No. 219
Let's talk about our favorite artists, albums and songs from these years. So, what's your favorite Japanese singer over 50?

>>219 Yasuha. I know, i know youtube city pop meme; but she made things besides flyday that are really good, case in point her album from '86 "Yahoo!!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fk8GM_NiAE
2nd for City Pop isn't a real genre
Take that back! City pop is real and fun and your dumb!
Akina Nakamori is probably my favourite Japanese artist from the 80s. She was an idol singer whose career became increasingly more experimental, culminating in an album where she was barely visible on the cover and all the vocals were mixed to the back. On the whole, City Pop is really cool. I do think we end up hearing about many of the same songs due to internet algorithm shenanigans, but there are a lot of hidden gems to discover. Especially the funkier stuff.
>>221 100% agree with this. Its just 80s jpop. I fucking hate the word prior to the youtube garbage it was just called 80s jpop
i love hanatarash
>>221 >>224 You guys are stupid. Citypop is more akin to jazz, funk and rock than it is to pop music.
>>226 I would still say it's predominately pop-oriented but the urban influences give out those interesting harmonies
Maybe it’s because I just recently rewatched the Sasori movies but I can’t stop listening to Meiko Kajis Music https://youtu.be/THaY9fVsjoM Other favorites might be Keiko Fuji https://youtu.be/K8nqAc3qglM Or Hako Yamasaki https://youtu.be/KLfmOHMVs48
