My Life's Soundtrack Part 9 - Ue O Mui Te Aruko (Sukiyaki) by Kyu Sakamoto

This is another of my all-time favorite oldies. Ue O Mui Te Aruko... I look up while I walk so my tears won't fall... (Stupidly renamed Sukiyaki for release in the USA.) This is an absolutely beautiful and timeless song.


Kyu's life story is very interesting. He died in a commercial airplane crash. If you read the wikipedia article, be sure to drill down and read about that crash. The story is fascinating.
