HELLO, TONS OF CALORIES!
I promise...Eggs Benedict with Hash Browns, Corned Beef Hash and a few vegetables is just a very rare indulgence, and that is because this sumptuous repast was on our family's Harmony of the Seas cruise back in 2017. I don't get that much of an opportunity to have Eggs Bennie since poaching those eggs and making that Hollandaise Sauce is a project that I think is best left to the gastronomical professionals.
In any case, going for that Sunday brunch twofer today that I started with Chikuzen Sato's（佐藤竹善）jazzy "Sunny Sunday Morning '09", I will finish this particular "Kayo Kyoku Plus" mini-project with the appropriately-titled "Brunch" by City Pop/AOR master Toshiki Kadomatsu（角松敏生）.
Along with the previous Kadomatsu song that I covered, "Office Lady", that I profiled, "Brunch" is from his 1982 album "Weekend Fly to the Sun". Unlike the high-energy "Office Lady", though, "Brunch" is one mellow musical respite as those traveling office ladies are now safely and securely ensconced in their overseas tropical hotel by the ocean having a leisurely mid-morning meal after a mad dash to the airport the night before. Of course, Kadomatsu wrote and composed the song but I couldn't help but hear a bit of Al Jarreau's "Breakin' Away" peeking through in parts. Some lovely horns and keyboards are joined by glistening strings (synth or real?...the liner notes shown on the J-Wiki article didn't mention any string groups in recording) which provide some refreshing breeze on the patio there.
