You guys know who Josh Groban is, right? He's a very talented multi-platinum selling 'easy listening' vocalist that has 'raised up' so many weddings with his music that I get teary just thinking about his voice. So, again, super-talented, and I mean no disrespect, but...
I could not stop giggling while listening to this new clip of Josh singing in Japanese. Warner Music Japan posted this full version of "Konosaki no Michi," the title song to the postwar-era NHK J-drama Makete, Katsu. I'm not so much making fun as I am just kind of enjoying the odd feeling of hearing his almost operatic voice float over these Japanese lyrics. And I'm not busting his balls over his really wide, vowel-y, super-white pronunciation either. God knows my Japanese isn't stellar. It's just so...funny! I've been mock singing it all morning!
All that said, the song is freakin' beautiful, and his voice is outstanding. Don't hate me, Groban.
Now, if you watch the drama (don't, it's painfully boring), you'll hear that Josh performs the song in the ending credits with no lyrics, and only la la laaahs. That's even funnier!
