Despite the New Wave appearance Kenji Sawada（沢田研二） had on the cover of his 40th single, "Kimeteyaru Konya"(I'll Show You Tonight), when I first heard this song via sources such as "Sounds of Japan" and the video tapes of ranking shows, I thought this was a pretty normal pop song for him. After all, getting those impressions of him as a Japanese David Bowie through the 1981 and 1982 Kohaku Utagassen specials, I thought I would always see him as a New Romantic Dandy with the songs to match.
But "Kimeteyaru Konya" is just a fun and happy song about a guy determined to get that girl, a song that would have been easily covered by Checkers. There's a bit of rock and techno in there, genres that dominated "Stripper" and "Rokuban-me no Yuutsu" respectively, but with this song, I gather that Sawada was going for that 50s-ish sound that was so popular back in the early-to-mid 1980s. And I think he pulls it off well with that Sawada swagger in his delivery.
