MOMOE YAMAGUCHI

Momoe Yamaguchi was a Japanese idol from the 70s. She started her career with this song at the tender age of 13. At 21, she married her husband, and retired from singing. She hasn't made an official public appearance since. Nonetheless, Yamaguchi remains one of the most popular idols of all time. This song of mine is my particular favourite - I always have a soft spot for debut singles.
