As someone commented on Youtube: "Intro wa kakkoii...."（イントロはかっこい...The intro is cool）.
Well, a lot of Yuming's（ユーミン）songs are darn cool in their entirety, including the one that the commenter was referring to, "Yaketa Aidoru" (Burned-out Idol).
The second track on Yumi Matsutoya's（松任谷由実）10th original album "Surf & Snow", I'm a little surprised that there wasn't anything written up about this sad story of a male aidoru whose star faded below the horizon long ago and even he has since disappeared somewhere into oblivion. Perhaps even by December 1980, which was when "Surf & Snow" was released, there was most likely a street lined with the careers of once-promising or never-were aidoru. In a way, the song seems to be a tonal relative to Barry Manilow's "Copacabana".
