Sakai Izumi~ “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”~♪♪

I originally didn't include this with my recent "~ZARD forever~" post here….but with a question from Denadel about this song I've created just a little add on post which is also now linked in the original writing~.

Sakai Izumi collaborated with Konishi Yasuharu to record the most beloved song♥ "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" and while there are numerous cover versions by many different artists of this song…here it takes on a distinct French flavor~ making it a bit unique beside other American artist versions.

Sakai Izumi sings in English completely for the entire recording~ which I imagine was already most difficult with pronunciations in English having no counterpart sounds in Japanese….and her Japanese accent is still quite strong here but I think it's such a cute and lively performance and along with the French instrumentation there's also an adorable chorus of children heard during the song's interludes~.  This 3" CD single was included with the first pressings of ZARD's album "Eien" which was released on February 17th, 1999 ^ ^。
