Yellow Magic Orchestra Discography

Japan's answer to Kraftwerk. Oh, were you waiting for more? Um, okay... YMO was a pioneer. Yeah, that's it, a pioneer in, uh, electronic music. Sure, everybody listened to YMO. They had this huge hit back in 1980 called "Computer Game" that sounded like the Space Invaders game. It was great. And YMO is the band where Riuichi (later Ryuichi) Sakamoto cut his teeth. Yup, that Ryuichi Sakamoto. Of course, I don't really remember them that well. No one played their music on the radio that I remember (even the late-night alternative stations) and you couldn't find their albums in record stores, but they were big. In the underground. Not the underground that I listened to, but that other underground that was parallel and a little deeper. I guess. Anyway, enough fooling around. I'll add singles to this discography when I get around to it. After all, there must be hundreds of YMO discographies on the 'net anyway because they were, you know, so huge.
