"Sukiyaki" in the Western World, originally "Ue o Muite Arukō" in Japan.  Performed but not written by Kyu Sakamoto in the early 60's.  Kyu died in a plane crash in 1985.  If the title does not sound familiar you will instantly recognize the tune as it has been covered ad nauseam.  The original lyrics are devastating and beautiful.  Also, do yourself a favor and listen to the version by Tsukumoto Isao who also absolutely kills Daydream Believer

Kyu Sakamoto - Sukiyaki (Stereo Music Video)  I've always loved this song! Used to request it every Saturday on my oldies radio station. Yep, I was a nerd in high school.
