This was EPO’s first single, released on March 21, 1980. Originally by Sugar Babe, a band active in the mid-1970s, the song, sung by EPO, became a big hit when it was used as the ending theme for the popular Saturday night comedy variety show “Ore-tachi Hyokinzoku” that aired in the 1980s.

Lyrics (translated)

Seven-colored twilight descends
The wind is somewhat tinny
Saturday night is lively
The streets are always a whirlwind
Still cheerful,
this town is always dressed up


Even my gloomy mood
Soon it’s all clear
Everybody’s so merry


Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!


Fade away like soap bubbles
Love for tonight only, that’s fun
Night is just around the corner


Even the darkest of feelings
Soon I’ll be fine
Everybody’s so happy


Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!


Even the darkest of moods
Soon I’ll be fine
Everybody’s on tenterhooks


Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!


Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!


Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!
Let’s go downtown!
