This became an international hit in 1963 for Kyu Sakamoto

It became so popular, it spawned several foreign langugage versions
one in French by Lucille Starr of the rockabilly duo The Canadian Swethearts

..and one in German by the Dutch-Indonesian duo, the Blue Diamonds

one in Spanish by the group Charm..

..and the English version by both A Taste Of Honey and 4 P.M.

What a fantastic assortment of versions of this Pop Classic. Thanx so very much for the research & work to have all these posted. We enjoyed it a lot. I have a version of Bob Dylan doing a tribute to Kyo while he was performing in concert in Japan, shortly after Kyo's passing. It's audio only, but a fond rendition, nonetheless.
