Momen no Handkerchief

Pretty much ALL J-Pop songs go in and out my brain with mostly the melody to sustain it.  The more engaging the hook, the better it’ll stick.

Because of this I always considered Momen no Handkerchief the best J-Pop (or Kayoukyoku) song of my 1970s youth.  Couldn’t think of anything more unique.

I also assumed the lyrics focused on girly platitudes or something. Well a great website called Natsumelo just blew my assumptions to kingdom come.

Check out the lyric page along with an TV performance (with a few of the middle verses truncated): http://www.natsumelo.com/2011/09/hiromi-ota-momen-no-handkerchief-1975/

Is there a more heartbreaking narrative in such a poppy song?  I can’t think of one at the moment, being as it’s becoming rather dusty in the room right now…
