Nightporter by Japan

“Another jam featuring David Sylvian, this time as the singer for the New Romantic group Japan. This song is one of the more tender moments on Gentlemen Take Polaroids, drawing inspiration from Erik Satie’s Gymnopedes to create something entirely new. This is one song to dance beneath the stars to.”

Released as a single in November 1982 during the band's farewell tour. Critics compared this to Trois Gymnopédies by Erik Satie, a tad unfairly.   7

Many years ago I rang up David Sylvian at the bookstore where I worked. Wanted to get all fangirl, but managed to remain professional. Sigh.   1
