And The Angels Sing—Japanese Style!

Something tells me the lovely and enthusiastic Japanese singer here has learned her lyrics phonetically--and I'm not sure they emerge as English.

Original Glenn Miller version included for purposes of comparison.

She's doing a pretty good job, really. At least she's more understandable than the person at the drive-thru. And certainly better than the Bulgarian version of Ken Lee.

She was pure awful (both lyrics and skill), but the band was actually pretty good (for a modern band). Most "jazz bands" today can't play jazz to save their lives, but this band actually sounds ok.

i'm not sure she even knew what the words meant. the cadences were all wrong. sam you're right, the band is better than the singer.
