More of the Sweetest Song

Japan's "Sukiyaki song" stamp

If you like the Sukiyaki song (Ue o Muite Aruko) as much as I do, check out this playlist from WMBR in Cambridge, the MIT radio station.

On his Subject to Change program, Patrick Bryant goes deep with multiple versions of one song. As readers of this site know, Sukiyaki has been covered dozens of times by artists all over the world since its 1961 release in Japan.

Bryant tracked down a swell selection for his July 28, 2019, show and it’s worth a listen if you see this during the two weeks the audio remains available. Alternatively, you can check out my Sukiyaki playlist on Youtube.
