Japanese singer in track two is obviously Akiko Yano (and not "Yono" as it is misprinted inside booklet but not on back of booklet), Ryuichi Sakamoto's ex-wife. She blinded me with science is sort of a "tribute" to her. In that song you can clearly hear a guy saying at one point "Good heavens, Miss Sakamoto, you're beautiful !!"…
