I just heard Can't Get Enough Of Your Love, Babe by Barry White. Once it gets going, it sounds a whole bunch like "Eyes To Me". :shock:

Barry White's got a nice voice, and he's apparently another of Masa's influences. I'll have to listen to some more, 'cos I quite liked this one.

Sorry to bump this thread but I found a youtube video with another possible song inspiration compare the song raindrops keep falling on my head by BJ Thomas with the song haretara ii ne the style and some small parts are similiar.

look up a video called 雨に濡れても~晴れたらいいね・Let's Groove~決戦は金曜日
by a user called UMEO TAKEMATSU on a popular video streaming website.

Sorry for double post I found a possible inspiration for the English version of Love Love Love. I was on YouTube looking for a cover of it by artist Eric Martin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySEkksZmhxM.

Somebody said in the comments it sounds like the start of a song called For the Peace of All Mankind by Albert Hammond if you listen around 17 seconds onwards it kinda sounds like that song :https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw7OGcBnD40

It was released in 1973 on this album :https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Free_ ... 28album%29 isn't Masa a fan of 70s music or more funky stuff I dunno.

Also unrelated Eric Martin does a cover of Winter Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-AbHkDwui0
and Boyz II Men lol : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hamjVvr13Mo

They sure do sound alike.

Hammond was very popular and prolific in the 70's (and beyond), so I wouldn't be surprised if Masa was familiar with him. My Hammond favorite would have to be 'The Free Electric Band;' friends of mine loved 'I'm A Train' (also pretty cool).

Masa's very much a 70s music fan and you can hear it in their music, especially the earlier tracks...
He's a big huge Earth, Wind & Fire fan too :)

It's also interesting in reading his blog whenever he shows off some of his favorite music....saw a pic with a bunch of Stevie Wonder's albums recently. :) There's even a horns tribute in "Kessen wa Kin'youbi" to Cheryl Lynn's 1978 "Got to be Real" :)

Thanks for the heads up on Boys II Men! I knew they had worked with Japanese artists, but I didn't realize they had put out a cover album of Japanese music. (Came across Debbie Gibson's Japanese cover album recently...I should be more on the lookout for them...)

I found some more possible possible inspirations for certain songs from this link the only new information is songs that could of inspired sweet sweet sweet.
http://hvymetal.com/143987.html

Here are some songs with similar style kinda to sweet sweet sweet with the string piano rim shot sound not sure about the heart band song though.

The Stylistics - You make me feel brand new : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJm51jsRoo0
Donny Hathaway - Someday We'll All Be Free : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv1B0ejhFVE
Heart - All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAfxs0IDeMs

I can see some possible inspirations in the first two songs.

according to a google translate english translation of the web page.

SWEET SWEET SWEET / The Swinging Star

Stylistics-The intro is very similar to You make me feel brand new.
Also, the
chorus is too similar to someday we'll all be free by Donny Hathaway .

The chorus is
a refrain for Heart's All i want to do make love to you .
masa and miwa and taka too
