Anyways, what Jim was asking about was Noguchi's 20th single from June 1976, "Kirameki" (Sparkle). It is very appropriately sparkly in tone and message as he sings about a couple having their dream date in town...things are looking really good for them. All sunshine all the time and all that. I gather that it's a nice kayo to have around you as you and your significant other are traipsing through the shopping streets.
Lyricist Michio Yamagami（山上路夫）and composer Kyohei Tsutsumi（筒美京平）were behind the very relaxing and optimistic "Kirameki". It hit No. 2 on the Oricon weeklies and ended up as the 33rd-ranked single of 1976.
