Another cool City Pop tune from actor/singer Akira Terao（寺尾聡）. Not surprisingly, it's from his No. 1 album of 1981, "Reflections". "Shukkou-Sasurai"(Leaving Port -- Wandering) was actually released in August 1980, some months before the release of the album. It starts off with a somewhat boozy intro as if the protagonist may have awakened anywhere else but in his bed on a ship. After that, Terao leads the song as if he were still bumbling around with a bottle in his hand and trying to conduct a waltz while walking on the deck. Nope, perhaps not a City Pop song per se but heck, cruise liners tend to stick close to the Japanese shore near Tokyo or Yokohama anyways.
