Singer-actor Satoshi Kishida（岸田智史）from Okayama Prefecture, first debuted in 1976 with "Aoi Tabi"(蒼い旅....Blue Journey). Three years later, he came up with his biggest hit, "Kimi no Asa"(Your Morning), a very comforting ballad that's less the drinking of coffee of Zaitsu's "Wake Up" and more the slow wafting of said coffee from the kitchen into the bedroom as it's brewing away. Whenever I'm reminded of it, the chorus of "Morning, morning...." rings in my ears.
Composed by Kishida itself and written by Osami Okamoto（岡本おさみ）, "Kimi no Asa" was the theme song for a TBS drama "Ai to Kassai to"（愛と喝采と....Love And Acclamation), a show that Kishida also starred in. The single was released in March 1979, and it hit No. 1 for 5 weeks straight in July and it sold over 600,000 copies before becoming the 15th-ranked song of the year. It is also the first track on his 4th album, appropriately titled "Morning" which also hit the top spot and became the 4th-ranked album of the year.
