Now Playing Tracks

Yellow Magic Orchestra (1979)

This is the best dance music ever from some of the best musicians to come from Japan.

You are not even capable of being in a bad mood when you throw this on. I love YMO and I love anything remotely attached to them. There was even a long period where “Firecracker” was my ringtone.

Haruomi Hosono, Yukihiro Takahashi, and Ryuichi Sakamoto were making some of the best and most innovative well organized pop music of all time when they created this album. Even today you can listen to this and convince someone it’s recent if they have never heard it before.

Who does not love Ryuichi Sakamoto and his outstanding career? He’s an amazing composer and a wonderful actor. Everything that man does is gold.
