Anyway,this thread was started to give a little perspective to both Toilet And Bowels and Glice as to why they can afford to love japanese music so much.

Ah, the old age card. I'm going to guess the Flying Lizards. Do I win?

I don't know the name of the band or the song, but I'm guessing at the one that's used in the final episode of The Prisoner. It features a Japanese-y female voice singing the line I, I, I, I, I, I like you very much.

edit: a little research tells me it was Carman Miranda's I, Yi, Yi, Yi, (I Like You Very Much), and that the song is originally from 1941. So maybe I'm wrong about the Japanese thing, although it always sounds that way to me.

What record made Japanese vocals cool into British pop music song?

I don't know, but I'm guessing porkmarras may possibly (although, it seems unlikely too) be referring to "It's No Game #1," the lead track from David Bowie's marvelous Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps). There's a Japanese female vocalist on it and the prodigious Robert Fripp plays guitar too on the track from the 1980 album.

If there's another recording that's pre'-80 and fits the criteria described in the question, then I'm not aware of it at the moment.

Of course, Yoko was before then, but hey, I would hardly describe any pre-'80 Ono/Lennon as being "brit pop." Although, Double Fantasy came out in 1980 as well and has a number of good Yoko tracks that are in a pop vein like "Kiss Kiss Kiss" and "I'm Moving On."

My other guesses are Sachiko Kaneobu or the female Japanese band Guernica, but I wouldn't say either used "brit pop" melodies, so those are probably not right either.

---
I wiki'ed and it says the name of the Japanese, yes, she is Japanese, singer on "It's No Game No. 1" is Michi Hirota.
