Emi Ito

I don't like writing these sort of things. Emi Ito, one half of "The Peanuts" with her twin sister Yumi Ito, passed away on June 15 at the age of 71. The Peanuts were the original twin fairies of Mothra, and will always be the best. But they had an impressive career apart from those monster movies. They even made it onto Ed Sullivan's show!

Here they are, singing in English(!):

And here's their rendition of "Mothra's Song":

Farewell, Emi Ito.

    Grew up with you films, only recently acknowledged your music career with sister Yumi as THE PEANUTS.
    Only wish I knew of you sooner.
    RIP -
    You will be missed all around the world
