Music – Sukiyaki

Here's another very distinctive musical item from the days of my youth (early teens when it came out, I seem to recall) by the Japanese fellow Kyu Sakamoto. Sukiyaki wasn't its real title but was easier for us Westerners to say than its proper title Ue O Muite Arakou, which means "I look up as I walk".

This video includes English subtitles, so we can all now appreciate what Sakamoto-san was singing about, all those years ago...
