on this page, you'll find sound samples, pictures, and
any other keen stuff I can find about Takako...  If you
have any contributions, please email me with details.

please be patient while this page loads. if you hit "stop"
too quickly, it won't look right.  Oh yeah, and it only
looks right if your screen is in 800 x 600 mode, with the
window maximized.

beikoku ongaku images are, well, I dunno the
official copywrite name, but they are property
of beikoku ongaku.

Sorry, I used to have a bunch of links to sound samples of Takako's music, but I decided to take them off here, as to avoid possible copyright quibbles....   If you want to hear the master herself, you can go to CDnow to get some great samples.  Also, be sure to go to Takako's Polystar page to hear Realaudio samples of Takako's music that you can't find at CDnow. 


This section is not yet totally complete, but there's enough to keep you busy for now. As for the songs in Japanese, I'm romanizing them myself, so if you see a (?), then it means I wasn't able to understand that part of the song.
