City Pop Radio
I posted a City Pop collection by Van Paugam a while back. If you liked it, he’s now got a streaming YouTube channel, City Pop Radio, described as –
Streaming City Pop classics 24/7! Come with us on an endless drive through the streets of Japan while listening to over 30 hours worth of the best City Pop records from the 80s. Travel back in time through the haze of memories that aren’t your own, and melodies frozen in a particular place in history.
It’s been running for almost 2 weeks now. There’s a live chat on the sidebar, if you want to discuss City Pop music or ask questions about it. The playlist is randomized and updated weekly. There’s also a donate link, if you like what you hear. The driving video is kind of neat to watch (no, not the cheeky pic in the thumbnail, a real vid), I’m not sure how long it runs before looping back to the start.

More blasts from the bubble era past!
You may have seen this one by Capsule (Yasutaka Nakata, a Brian Eno figure, who also does the music of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Perfume). A few camera tricks turns the urban expressway driving into a Blade Runner type electo-rhapsody. I kind of like it. Hypnotic.
