I gotta admit that if it weren't for Chikuzen Sato's（佐藤竹善）smooth vocals, I would have thought that this song came straight from one of my American AOR compilations. "Try and Try Again" was the title track from Sing Like Talking's debut album which came out in November 1988, and Sato with fellow member and keyboardist Chiaki Fujita（藤田千章）were responsible for whipping this one up.
The song had actually been first performed at the Young Jump Song Contest in December 1986 which won the newly-named Sing Like Talking the Grand Prize. However, it would be almost another 2 years before it finally got officially recorded for release. City Pop may have been waning a bit in the latter half of the 80s but happily this band was still holding the torch. The album also has a lovely ballad, "Raining Blues".
