Japanese covers of English songs in English

Posted by shanoah on June 15, 2008

Thanks for the good word, Sean. Though I’ve posted quite a few songs on here that I don’t own, or hadn’t heard of before I found and posted them.

One of these two songs was going to go in another post, but I think it works better here. The other was pointed out to me by my brother (thanks, Alex).

Boulevard of Broken Dreams – Utada Hikaru

Yes, this is Boulevard of Broken Dreams, by Green Day, being covered by Utada Hikaru, who you may remember as having done the theme songs for Kingdom Hearts.

And she does a very good job of the cover, too.

Windflowers – Wynners & New Topnotes

I love the Seals & Crofts song “Windflowers”. And this is a very unique cover of it. It works well, I think.
