I couple of interesting songs have gotten the big *push* as they say here in Japan. On of them is by an artist named Faye Wong. She's Chinese, singing in English and Japanese in an Irish style in her current hit which you can check out here by clicking on the RealAudio icon.
The other interesting one is this is the song Swing Time in Honolulu. Unfortunately the boneheads in charge of all the music website in Japan rarely put samples up and even if they do they usually only put up one song. So, in this case they didn't put up a sample of the hit. Still, here's Blue Hawaii sung by a Japanese women in Brazillian Portuguese to a Bossa Nova beat.
The World is getting smaller and smaller 😉
