I love the Japanese. There TV is awesome, utterly bizzare. Their music is an amazing blend of western and japanese traditional culture.

I particularly like Morning Musume, and pop band that cointains up to 15  japanese girls. There a nation wide TV competition every year, where they retire a couple of girls and recruit a couple of new ones. This is ‘Sakura Mankia’ (The Cherry Blossom is in full bloom)

and my other favorite Morning Musume track, a lovely traditional song sung by Ai Kago and Nozomi Tzsugi

Lyrics:

The white color of the petals is the color of my lover
The nostalgic white lily is the color of my lover
That person of my hometown,  it blooms by his feet, the white lily’s
The white color of the petals are the color of my lover

The clear color of the blue sky is the color of my first love
Beautiful everywhere, the color of my first love
The person of my hometown backs against each other, we saw that time…
The clear color of the blue sky is the color of my first love

The red color of the sunset is the color of my memories
Wavering in my tears the color of my tears
The color of my memories that person of my hometown
Reflecting in his moist eyes…

The red color of the sunset is the color of my memories
The color of my memories the color of my memories

Of course it doesnt make sense, its translated from the Japanese.

George Shearing, inventor of Locked Hands style, playing his version of his composition, ‘September in the Rain’

and playing ‘The Shadow of your Smile’

Awesome.
