Trying to solve a few mysteries here in the time remaining :

Kyu Sakamoto did the original.

A Taste of Honey introduced it, then the original became very popular.

I could swear there was an almost concurrent version in Japanese done by a female singer. Not Utada Hikari (j/k) she's new and that's way overproduced anyhow. It's kind of like Jackson Browne does Girl from Ipanema ... I would think me brain was failing but a few other people in the soshul medium have mentioned the same thing.

So who ?

When we solve this, I want to work on "Why did Liston throw that fight ?"
he looked at me and said, "Kid, we don't like your kind, and we're gonna send your fingerprints off to Washington " ...
