First sung by husky-voiced Yasuko Naito（内藤やす子）in October 1984, another version has an old-style (perhaps 50s) R&B style with the saxophone as Naito kicks it up a notch (the video at the very top). The song also reminds me a bit of the more brassier examples of nightclub enka. To be honest, though, I enjoy the more languid and contemporary version here.
The video above though has the organ sounding a bit too much like something from "Monster Chiller Horror Theatre"which undercuts the overall performance. If you can, find the original Kurahashi version.
(October 27 2012: Looks like the powers-that-be have taken down the video. I've tried looking elsewhere for a link but to no avail. I'll keep on searching.)
