Japanese Boy

Japanese Boy by Aneka was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, August 29, 1981 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This song is a plea by Aneka for her absent lover to return home. This combined a mix of styles, including new wave, disco and Asian. This was a hit on the European continent as well and it was the first #1 in Britain by a British artist for the German company Hansa. It was not a hit in Japan as it was rejected by Hansa's Japanese record label for sounding too Chinese.
