In the 1980s, Japan found its regional answer to synth pop and disco in the form of city pop. This once mostly unknown genre is currently attracting a global interest thanks to reissuse labels like Music From Memory, mix series like Sanpo Disco and DJs like Osaka’s Mori-Ra, whose Japanese Breeze mix series works as a kind of introduction to the genre. City pop is a genre of Japanese popular music that was popular in the 1980s and featured a cosmopolitan image that appealed to those who benefited from the so-called post-war economic miracle, an economic boom that took place in Japan between the end of World War II and the Cold War.

Cash said, Gospel music is so ingrained into my bones; I can’t do a concert without singing a gospel song. Aretha Franklin was just 14 when she recorded the 1956 album Songs Of Faith at the New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was the reverend.
