A favourite, ever since this song lodged itself in my head:

This "Surabaya Johnny" from The Threepenny Opera is also rather splendid:

two brilliant songs, sung brilliantly, in one post. Hats off to Kari, thanks! Acnalbasac Noom (the whole album) is a mighty wondrous recording

Thanks, Chris. I found that Slap Happy song as a teenager on Virgin Record's compilation "Dead On Arrival" (with the piglet in red gumboots on the cover. I know, strange.).

And now that I have gotten around to check it, there is indeed two different versions of Casablanca Moon: one on the Acnasalbac Noom album, the other rearranged and released in the UK by Virgin (as Slapp Happy). The latter is on that Piglet album I mentioned above...

But if Dagmar Krause has recorded and performed songs created for theatre, what will you say about this:

I will say that I have seen it before. I think when the words get mangled it kinda loses its point, much more than somewhat. She can partially enunciate english language about as badly as I could, just maybe, partially enuciate Japanese language if I put significant work into it. There are many Japanese with a better grip of singing in english fortunately for us and them, and of course there are some brits who can sing and make themselves understood (and understand the words they are singing) in Japanese. Probably not that many though
