Kazumasa Oda

The former leader of Japanese folk-rock powerhouse Off Course, Kazumasa Oda (born September 20, 1947) began his solo career in 1985. He released a number of hit singles, including "Love Story wa Totsuzen Ni" ("Love Stories Are Sudden"), the theme song to the 1991 TV drama Tokyo Love Story, which was a multi-million seller, becoming the eighth best-selling single in Japanese history. His albums were just as popular; the first, K. Oda, was released in 1986, and over the years he released many more. As of 2016 he had released nine original studio albums, two cover albums, and five compilations, including 2002's hugely successful Jiko Best ("Personal Best"), which sold over two million copies. Of his studio albums, four went to number one; the best selling was 1992's Sometime Somewhere. He continued to chart well into the 2010s, with his 2014 studio album Oda Biyori ("Oda Weather") going to number three and his 2016 compilation Ano Hi Ano Toki ("That Day, That Time") to number one. ~ Chris True
