Where you, dear reader, come in to my plan is that I would love to receive suggestions. I'm open to all kinds of genres, time periods, artists, etc. In fact, I'd be happy to put up stuff from Japan, Taiwan, the US, etc. So email me suggestions (or leave them in the comments section).
I'm going to start with "Lemon Tree" by 박혜경 (Park Hyegyŏng or Hyegyeong or Hyekyung or...), which I found by... well, I'm not sure how I found it. I like this song because the original, by Fool's Garden, reminds me of happy times with my ex-fiancée (if you've heard the original, I know that sounds a bit odd, but it was a favorite song of hers).
Ms Park's cover is a completely different direction from the last bit of music I put up on my blog, "Jump Around" by House of Pain, nice Irish fellows from a pleasant neighborhood in Boston.
