Utada Hikaru: Blue

My current J-Pop obsession is the song "Blue," by Utada Hikaru, a freakishly gifted pop singer, fluent in English and Japanese, and capable of not only accurately hitting soaring high notes, but also writing and arranging her own music.

This video isn't the official "Blue" video at all, but it does give you some nice shots of Hikki, as she is known to her fans, moodily singing through her atmospheric music. Beware the strange interruptions: other pop-stars and film snippets show up. Despite all that, you can be sure to enjoy the song. Here are the lyrics and Japanese/romaji, and the translation, for anyone interested.

That is a really pretty song!
