Loved that song back when it came out and still do. Play it often.
Let me guess, it was a hit before the Beatles arrived in the U.S.?
Because he sang it in Japanese! Di. A. Boli. Cal.
Plus it was sold as a pop love song.
You mean...???!!! It's NOT about beef stew?!
I'm more of a shabu-shabu guy.
Nope, that was a firs . And I'm old
Sukiyaki was on the US charts about the same time as this:
Sad ending. The "Singing Nun" committed suicide.
Like Chunkocaster, I readily recognized the melody.....if it was on the radio around the same time as the Singing Nun, I might have heard it, but it didn't register very strongly. Popular music just wasn't very significant to me until the Great Folk Music Scare of the early sixties, and then, of course 1963 (just BEFORE Ed Sullivan) when I first heard The Beatles. So I could've heard Sukiyaki on the radio, in a film score, or in a TV commercial. NEVER knew the story, of course.
Not much of a surprise. Fujiyama Mama was popular in Japan, too.
And of course I know the song. The 4 P.M. version isn't bad either.
Re-done by A Taste Of Honey into a huge hit (they also did Boogie Oogie Oogie)
Nuns making pop hits,
ah yes, I remember it well,,,
Just listen to that beautiful bass of his.
Yes, nice little pop song.
I remember it well!
Great melody, and memory!
Boom chick boom chick boom chick etc!
I was talking about his beautiful warm muted bass tone that he was perfectly dynamically consistent on.
Yes boom chick too.
I remember that song well but haven't thought of it for decades. It sure does bring back some feelings from that time.
