Hey guys, I found the "Oldskool Japanese Music Thread" and thought this might be the right place to ask

I am searching for this song - its used in an old Anime (Slam Dunk)
As far as I know its an old Japanese love song!



Also "Ebichu"  kinda karaokes that song


Any ideas appreciated - thanks  ;)
bye,
sal

森高千里 「私の夏」
« Reply #31 on: August 16, 2011, 10:43:18 AM »
I was grooving to an old Moritaka Chisato concert (OK they're ALL "old").  I then hit You Tube to see if my fave song from "Lucky 7 Live" was there.  Well it WAS but damn it was a three-year-old upload that looked all worn out compared with the other HD stuff to the side.

So I decided to make my own:



"Third Party Content" copyright claims be damned!  This is "Watashi no Natsu" and it's #2 on my all-time fave Chisato song list.  Enjoy!

Saburo san, Chisato is absolutely lovely. And what is freaking me out is I am pretty sure I met her in April when I attended the Up-Front group charity event in Yokohama. I didn't put two and two together until watching your post. But I remember a really pretty and gracious woman who was about 40, and I knew she had to have been a performer, but her career predates when I started following J-pop, so I did not recognize her. I do remember she was very gracious when I thanked her (during the handshake event) and all of the other Up-Front team who came out on that rainy day to raise funds, and she very sincerely thanked me for coming. What a lady!!

That was a great read...Marty is a serious J-Music fan. I have really liked everything he has done in Japan, and he is a great spokesman for Japanese popular music.

A quick google search gave me their official blog: http://ameblo.jp/officecute/ and official twitter: https://twitter.com/officecute  XD

Never heard of them though  :nervous

THE LAND OF IDOLS
« Reply #39 on: June 06, 2015, 03:13:12 AM »
A friend just sent this link about a project looking for funding: a documentary on J-idols.

Color me skeptical, but I wouldn't spend a dime on this. Everyone thinks they'll "get it right." Ahh, I doubt it but good luck to them anyway.
