With her increasing popularity, Yamaguchi gained more control over her career and was able to select her own songwriters. One of her choices was Ryudo Uzaki. She chose him because she liked his song “Secret Love”, recorded by the Down Town Boogie Woogie Band. Their first collaboration resulted in the single “Yokosuka Story” in 1976, written by Uzaki with lyrics by his wife, Yoko Aki. Aki was inspired to write the song because both she and Yamaguchi, whom she had never met when the song was originally ordered, had both lived in Yokosuka. “Yokosuka Story” was Yamaguchi’s biggest hit, selling more than 600,000 copies, and peaked at number one on the charts. This was the beginning of a collaboration with the husband and wife songwriting team which only ended with Yamaguchi’s retirement. Songs were also written for her by writers such as Masashi Sada, who wrote one of her most popular hits, “Cosmos”.
