Ogenki Desuka? (How Are You?)

  Without minimizing the devestation of Japan from the tsunami, I thought it would be a nice change to talk about something positive.
  In 1963, the hit song Sukiyaki came out by Kyu Sakamoto.  It was the only Japanese language song that ever made the charts in the US.  I liked it because it had a great sound even though I didn't know what was being said.  However, an English version of it came out in 1981 by A Taste Of Honey.  Click here and see if it sounds familiar!
