I Left My Heart Where?


Of course, when you drink too much beer in Japan, you inevitably end up singing karaoke with total strangers. The Japanese man between me and Eric worked for NTT, and the song we sang was I refuto mai haato in San Furanshisuko ("I Left My Heart in San Francisco"). It was one of three English songs on the playlist. The others were Hei Jiyudo ("Hey, Jude") and Raabu Mi Tendaa ("Love Me Tender"). Tony, Paul, and Elvis were still the top English karaoke hits in 1991 in Shizuoka.

Am I terrible, to be ROFLMAO at this? (lol)

"Of course, when you drink too much beer in Japan, you inevitably end up singing karaoke with total strangers" sounds like a great line that might've got left on the editing floor after American Fuji got published!

I didn't think either Gaby or Alex would sing.
