Sunday J-POP (Japanese Pop) – ALL OR NOTHING By A Phantom Singer Takako Mamiya

Another Sunday J-pop time! It has been moody weather. Rain and Sunny have been competing each other to take a position of the weather. Today I introduce a phantom singer, Takako Mamiya. The song is one of a track on an album called [love Trip].

The album [Love Trip]

This album was released in 1982. It became the ONLY one album. After this album Takako Mamiya disappeared from a music world forever. Her voice give us an impression of coolness and collaboration with big musicians at the time made this album as an unforgettable piece of fine work which is still loved by many listeners.

My thought

Sometime we came across a situation that we are not sure if this love is true or not. We do not know our true feeling. Get confused. The best way to find out is that not think of that person for a while and that distance and that space of not being contacted make us realize our true feeling. If it is true feeling, then you want to keep in touch that person, want to talk, want to see dearly.

Hope you like it and enjoy it! Thank you for watching!!!
