    Jpop Recommend #307 Watashi wa piano by Mizue Takada

    Jpop Recommend #307 Watashi wa piano by Mizue Takada


     私はピアノ Watashi wa piano


    Released in March 1980, this song was released as part of the album, “Tiny Bubbles” by Southern All Stars.  This song was then covered in July 1980 by Mizue Takada as her 12th single.  Her calm voice and sad tune matched well and it became a big hit.  Considering the fact that this song was made almost 40 years ago amazes me.  It doesn’t sound old at all.

    Later she got married to a Sumo wrestler, Wakashimazu (now retired and runs a sumo training quarter) and retired as a singer.  

    This song matches well in Latin arrangement and I also like another cover version by Orchesta de la Luz.
    Back then in 1980
