The theme for "Uta Kon"（うたコン）back on Tuesday night was the world of the late songwriter Kuranosuke Hamaguchi（浜口庫之助）. Of course, a lot of his works are famous songs in the kayo kyoku sphere of influence which include the tender and folksy "Bara ga Saita"（バラが咲いた）by Mike Maki（マイク眞木）, the Group Sounds classic "Yuuhi ga Naiteiru"（夕陽が泣いている）by The Spiders and the Mood Kayo "Koukotsu no Blues"（恍惚のブルース）by husky-voiced Mina Aoe（青江三奈）.
One insight that I got about Hamaguchi from the broadcast was that he often picked musical influences from all over the world. Looking at my own list in "Kayo Kyoku Plus", I realized that he could come up with songs for singers all throughout the kayo spectrum.
One of the songs that was featured in the tribute was "Boku wa Naichicchi" (I am C-C-Crying), a kayo that had been written and composed by Hamaguchi for singer Hiroshi Kamiya（守屋浩）in 1959. According to the J-Wiki article for the songwriter, "Boku wa Naichicchi" may have been the first creation of his to get recorded.
It's a light and slightly melancholy enka about a man who's lamenting the loss of his girlfriend to the bright lights and big city of Tokyo. I could imagine the big lug trying to keep a brave face on the platform as she waves goodbye from the train, only for him to start crumbling into a pool of brine. There were quite a number of these exodus enka back in the day to reflect the mass migration of young people to the metropolis to find work and a new life.
Not sure how well "Boku wa Naichicchi" did but it was popular enough that Moriya got his invitation to the 1960 Kohaku Utagassen to perform it.
