Sunday 70’s J-POP (Japanese Pops) – Tokai (都会)/A City by Takeko Ohnuki ( 大貫妙子)

This is all I have for you

The Sunday J-pop time again! September has arrived. I feel an autumn wind touching my face already. The night begins at earlier than before. The night is getting longer and longer. I though I should introduce some a chilling song for relaxation. Today’s song I introduce is called “Tokai/a city in 1977. The song written and sang by herself. While I am listening this song I am writing this blog at Sunday night. And I feel very relax and happy.

Hope you feel same way too.

The below video is the one from live 40th Anniversary. It would be interesting to compare. Which arrangement would you like? Her voice is actually better as she get older.

Tokai (都会)

Song by Taeko Ohnuki

Lyrics

night city that never sleeps
眠らない夜の街

A flood of murmuring light
ざわめく光の洪水

street-colored woman
通り色(いろ)どる女

Dress up and play with your heart
着飾る心と遊ぶ

not worth it
値打ちもない

wrapped in splendor
華やかさに包まれ

until dawn
夜明けまで

say you’re dating
付き合うと言うの

keep growing like bubbles
泡のように増え続け

A flood of aimless people
あてもない人(ひと)の洪水

mysterious back world
不思議な裏の世界

i say goodbye
私はさよならする

not worth it
値打ちもない

wrapped in splendor
華やかさに包まれ

until dawn
夜明けまで

say you’re dating
付き合うと言うの

Stop living from day to day
その日暮らしは止め(やめ)て

Let’s go home together
家(うち)へ帰ろう ー緒に

Stop living from day to day
その日暮らしは止め(やめ)て

Let’s go home together
家(うち)へ帰ろう ー緒に

Stop living from day to day
その日暮らしは止め(やめ)て

Let’s go home together
家(うち)へ帰ろう ー緒に

Stop living from day to day
その日暮らしは止め(やめ)て

Let’s go home together
家(うち)へ帰ろう ー緒に

Stop living from day to day
その日暮らしは止め(やめ)て

Let’s go home together
家(うち)へ帰ろう ー緒に

Stop living from day to day…
その日暮らしは止め(やめ)て…
