Sushi Schalger

Is it just me, or is it more than a coincidence that the two most successful Japanese-language singles of all time here in Sweden both have had food-related titles?

Kyu Sakamoto - Sukiyaki (1963)

Tegomass - Miso Soup (2006)

I guess there's an interesting post here about the relative success of food globalisation compared to all other kinds (or is it really?). And another one about the strange European J-Pop subculture. But those will have to wait for another time.
