Written by Alan O’Day & Tatsuro Yamashita

The 1980 album “Miss M” from Japanese icon Mariya Takeuchi included the song “Every Night.” This soulful composition was co-written in the late seventies by deceased singer/songwriter Alan O’Day with Tatsuro Yamashita, a Japanese pop music icon and gifted songwriter/producer. Yamashita was married to pop singer Takeuchi who was a celebrity in her home country. Around 1980, Takeuchi recorded “Every Night” in Los Angeles with David Foster and Jay Graydon in the control room.
