1980 was definitely the year of YMO with their 2nd, 3rd and 4th albums all in the Top 10, but Folk/New Music singer Chiharu Matsuyama had the top album of the year, "Kishou Tenketsu" album of his best hits....and his follow-up album, "Roman". And at No. 8, new aidoru singer Seiko Matsuda would have her first album, "Squall" containing her debut single, "Hadashi no Kisetsu" and her first big hit in "Aoi Sangosho".
