Japan - I Second The Emotion


On this date in 1980, Japan released their seventh single, "I Second That Emotion". It was backed by "Quiet Life". The B side appeared on their third album, Quiet Life. The A side was a non-LP track though it appeared on an early compilation called Assemblage. The single reached the #9 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London new wave disbanded in 1982 after five studio albums. Their last live performance was, ironically enough, in Japan.
