I had already referred to this Kenjiro Sakiya's（崎谷健次郎）ballad in an article for another song of his, "ROOMS", last year but admittedly, I merely threw it out so I'm providing something more proper today. And deservedly so, since I think this is a wonderful love song by the singer-songwriter. Sakiya composed it with Yasushi Akimoto（秋元康）providing the lyrics.
"Mou Ichido Yoru wo Tomete" (Stop The Night Once More) is Sakiya's 3rd single from October 1987. It's imbued with some so much warmth and soul for a crisp autumn night that I wonder if Sing Like Talking had ever covered it. Actually, according to the J-Wiki article for the song, it was covered by another band, Skoop on Somebody, but it certainly has had its exposure through other avenues. It was not only used for a Citizen watch commercial back then, but it has also been used in a few TV dramas and at least one motion picture, one of which was Fuji-TV's "Tokyo Love Story" (not included on the soundtrack though)! I'm gonna have to check my copy of that, but I am not surprised that it would be included.
The song has been included on his 2nd album, "Realism" from March 1988, and is also on his "KENJIRO SAKIYA COMPLETE BEST Love Ballads" from March 2003. As for the single itself, it went as high as No. 25 on Oricon.
