Yamaguchi Momoe
loveandcoffee wrote in kayoukyoku
As promised, I bring you some Momoe :D
I don't think she needs any introduction, but just in case, Yamaguchi Momoe was a singer who debuted in 1972 at the age of 13 after passing an audition for the legendary talent tv show "Star tanjou", and retired in 1980 at just 22 when she married actor Miura Tomokazu (to whom she's still married).
Although she was only active for 8 years, she is considered one of the most important and unforgettable singers of the Seventies because of her "daring" (for the time) image and peculiar husky voice.
She is a great singer and, especially in her later career, she performed really amazing songs so I'd suggest you to give her a try.

First off, the compulsory best album.

Thanks, I used to have some of her stuffs but lost during repairs..



I have quite a few Momoe albums, but I do NOT have Moebius game or Cosmos! OMG!!!!

Thank you thank you thank yuuuuu~~~ ^_____^

I have just found, sorted and retagged her whole discography! When life stops being a bitch I'll do another massive discog post :D

not taking since i already own her albums, but!! her cosmos was 2nd in the top 50 songs (showa era), voted on tv a few days ago! <333

Thanks a lot for sharing, i appreciate so much.

Thank you ever so much!

Thank you for sharing these! I had Moebius Game and Golden Best but my PC crashed a few months ago, so it was a relief I found them again. (:

i hope this community is still alive. its just recently that i've discovered these japanese music of the past decades

Thank you for sharing these!
I have a question though, you wouldn't happen to have the instrumental for "Cosmos" would you??
Please let me know!!! ^^

Cosmos instrumental/karaoke

I'm trying to get the hang of this, so here goes:

You may find the Cosmos instrumental at:

You'll find many more Momoe there,including her first album with the naughty songs.

There is actually much more there than you would think by putting Momoe Yamaguchi in the search box. And persevere with getting her name spelt correctly, the site does that strange Apple thing with accents.

Try putting in actual song or album titles and see what comes up.

I found I had to alternate between getting Google to translate from Vietnamese to English and Japanese to English to get the Romaji and English titles. Even then some stubbornly remained untranslated.

After listening to a lot of her LPs from this site, I'd put Momoe above the Candies but I still reckon Pink Lady are the tops.

If that link doesn't work, I found the site by Googling "Momoe Yamaguchi discography" (I think) and it was about 6 pages in. Just look for a link in Vietnamese - it's about the only one.

There you go. Good luck.



do you have the instrumental to cosmos? let me know :)

Thank you so much for sharing these! Definitely going to listen to these. ^__^

Thank you お姉さん ;~;
