Shohjo-tai: Super Vario

This CD arrived from Amazon Japan.  It’s condition was listed as “acceptable” although it was in surprisingly good shape.  No tears on the artwork.  This was a rental and the obi was taped to the cover.  There’s a sticker on the artwork that I’m afraid to remove because it might damage the artwork.  The CD itself is in excellent condition–it’s hard to believe this was a rental.

I bought this CD for “Kimi no Hitomi ni Koishiteru” (Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You).  It’s Shohjo-tai’s 1986 rendition of the Frankie Valli song.  There’s also a 1987 version of this song on their P-CAN album which sounds more 80s dance.

My Tenso package arrived today.

Grandmaster Melle Mel with Shojotai?

There’s a rapper on Shojotai’s “Can’t take my eyes off of you” that sounds a lot like the rapper on “I feel for you.”  Shojotai recorded their song in 1987.  “I feel for you” was recorded in 1984.  I’d have to get my hands on Shojotai’s CD to know for sure.
