Mini Mini Girl: Kanai Katsuko

Kanai Katsuko released a number of popular singles during the seventies including “Tanin No Kankei” [Love With A Stranger; 1973) and “Ningen Morou” (Human Condition; 1974). Kanai was born in the Japanese Occupied Territory of Tien Tzin in 1945. Joined the “Nishino Ballet Dan” Talent Agency in 1953. Got her big break as a regular on the NHK variety program “Uta No Grand Show” (The Grand Singing Show; 1964). It was there that she would meet the rest of the singers and dancers that would eventually form the “Nishino Bellet Dan Go Nin Musume”. After “Zero Zero Kunoichi”, Kanai went on to star in various Musicals and Stage Plays and also released a couple more singles.

That is a great song. I'd first heard it on one of the compilations of pop/loungey Japanese artists from the Sixties and Seventies that K.Yasuharu of Pizzicato five had made. Fab!
Everytime I hear this song, it makes me want to jump up onto a table and do the Monkey. :-)
