We Love Cyndi and Kate

I think by now you should know that I am obsessed with Asian covers of western songs, so imagine my delight when I head about this.

God bless Japan for giving the world "We Love Cyndi: Tribute to Cyndi Lauper", an album full of fabulous yet heavily accented covers, and, most importantly, what seems to be the first new recording from tommy february6 in 3 years! Of course I do love tommy heavenly6 and the brilliant green and I have spent lots of money on cds from them, but there is a special place in my heart for february6. tommy covers "All Through The Night".

I also made a wonderful music store find a few weeks ago when I found an imported copy of Kate Ryan's "Free" at Borders at the Time Warner Center, for $9 (after coupon). Some europop sympathizer/fan must have been in charge of purchasing, so many thanks to this mystery staff person.
