Junko Yagami - "Boxer"
After last week's Japanese folk song about boxing we're in deep again this week with a Japanese pop song from 1986. This is "Boxer" by Junko Yagami, who released to track on her album Yagamania, and it placed at #33 on the Oricon charts in Japan.
Although never released as a single Yagami herself appears to have made this available to all on her youtube channel and it's a rather catchy track, with somewhat dark lyrics. Nothing too original, but it does feel very much a product of it's time, with an almost disco like feel to the track musically.
Relatively painless to listen too, but maybe not the sort of thing many of us would actively be listening too now, almost 4 decades on.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
