It's been a while since I covered a Yoshimi Iwasaki（岩崎良美）song so I'm happy to select a track from her June 1982 5th album "Cecile".
The catchphrase for the album was "Here's the fragrance of Europe just for you!", and judging from Track 2 "Aishite Mon Amour" (Love Me, Mon Amour), it looks like there was some truth-in-advertising here. The song was also Yoshimi's 8th single released in January 1982.
Written and composed by the husband-and-wife team of Kazumi Yasui and Kazuhiko Kato（安井かずみ・加藤和彦）, "Aishite Mon Amour" sounds like a very early Anri（杏里）song, and sure enough, there is also that feeling of European elegance as advertised imbued into the melody arranged by Nobuyuki Shimizu（清水信之）. The album has been categorized as both aidoru and New Music (even going into the 1980s), and from both this song and another single that was put onto "Cecile", "Vacance", although there is that happy boppiness of aidoru, Shimizu's arrangement seems to kick things up a notch from the usual teenybopper tunes, thanks to that elegance I just mentioned. Moreover, it's also nice to hear EPO with her backing chorus.
