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 ?"
