I’m very sure that you will begin to reminisce about how lovely Paris used to be as you enjoy this pleasant song. The original melody「パリの街角で」— “Pari no machikado de” in Japanese — was composed and performed by Pianist Nobuyuki Mizuoka and it is the fourth track of his 2005 solo album Home-bound.

Mizuoka-san has a bottomless creative capability that may very well catapult him to great heights as an international-caliber composer-arranger. And how wonderful it would be for that to happen in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!!
