By listening to the funky music, brought to you by Yukihiko Ito (伊藤雪彦) makes you envision our protagonist under the dimness of the streetlights out at the port in the middle of the night staring at the ships forlornly as they stream by. Ocean wind blowing her hair back as she yearns for her special one to come back to her. I think I've been watching too much Enka music videos. But seriously, at some points of the song, you can feel the loneliness from Yashiro's voice as she sings. Before I forget, the lyrics were done by 二条冬詩夫 (I apologize, I have no idea how to pronounce his name).
Anyway, other than being her 19th single released in 1977, 'Onna Minato Machi' is also under Yashiro's long repertoire of hits, peaking at 13th position on the Oricon charts. It also allowed her to receive the special prize at the 10th Zen Nihon yusen hoso Awards (全日本有線放送大賞). However, she only sang the song once at the 28th Kohaku on her 5th appearance in 1977.
