Martin Denny Lives!
Christmas record of the Day: Last Christmas (link for a limited time only)by Japanese comedian-singer-ukelelist Takagi Boo. Compare and contrast with version by Inner Voices/La Voix posted here a few days ago. Talk amongst yourselves.
Along with Tatsuro Yamashita's Christmas Eve, (link for a limited time only) the George Michael/Wham recording of Last Christmas has been a staple on the Japanese seasonal record sales charts ever since it was released, one year after the Yamashita, in 1984.
Answer to yesterday's riddle:
Q. How is Brokeback Mountain different from any movie western that's come before?
A. The good guy gets it in the end.
