Shrink to fit

Tomorrow I have a counselling session. The last time I went for counselling was in 2006, and it was not a great experience at the time. I only hope I will be a slight more receptive now than I was back then.

Here are a couple of audio oddities for you to consider. There is a Japanese band called Box who perform music in the style of the Beatles. Their 2008 album Box Pops is a delight, featuring songs such as Life Is Like a Cornflake - which demonstrates the difficulty that Japanese people have with the English language. Note that panning vocal singing: "Cornfrake! Cornfrake!"

Radio presenter Iain Lee introduced us to this album when he presented on Absolute Radio, and the song he plugged the most was this one entitled Temptation Girl. a slew of Japanese lyrics with the occasional English word or phrase sticking out like a sore thumb!
