Nice Saturday out there! Finished up two-thirds of a rare weekend translation assignment so now taking it easy in the afternoon.
Found another one of those singers from the bottom 9/10ths of my music iceberg that I've analogized about over the years. Pretty much zero in terms of information about Miki Sato（佐藤美樹）aside from the fact that, according to this site, she released only two albums in 1994.
Still, I like this pop song from her 2nd album "Private Colors" from November of that year. "Egao kara Hajimemashou" (Let's Start from a Smiling Face) has that bubbliness which would almost land the song in the aidoru area. Still, I hear a bit more sophistication in the arrangements so I'm reminded of some of the other chanteuses from around that time such as Eri Hiramatsu（平松愛理）and Miki Imai（今井美樹）. Sato and Anju Mana（真名杏樹）wrote the lyrics while Hitoshi Haba（羽場仁志）took care of the melody.
Keep chipping away underwater. You never know what you'll find.
