R&B was the most competitive category. So there are several pretty good runners-up, beginning with this...

Lunatique,

Thank you for posting this. I understand what you're talking about now. And have heard songs with a similar vibe on some older anime and Japanese TV shows, though I did not know the name of the genre.

It's not really disco. The style is similar, but not precisely identical to alot of adult contemporary music played in the US around the same time. Or what some might derisively call "elevator music", which was sort of a mix of soft R&B, smooth jazz/fusion, and "smoothed out" covers of pop tunes. 80's AC stations would often play artists like Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Sting, Barry Manilow, Whitney Houston, Sade, and other folks of that general ilk.

I like the vibe on several of your city pop tracks, and hope you'll post some more when you have a chance.
