Karaoke Practice: ii hi tabidachi
When I moved from Saga to Saitama, a reader told me about this song. It's perfect for people that are about to go off on a big trip. The song is pretty easy to memorize and impress your elders with.
Kinda Scary Girl version (her website is here).
English, slightly disco version by The Nolans.
It seems like there have been quite a few foreigners to break into the enka world over the years (the most recent and famous being Jero of course); I may make a post about foreign singers next time we have Karaoke Practice.
