Elmo sings enka, I'm already liking him more than Jero


I really don't like Jero. We heard about him all the time when I went to Kansai Gaidai, from the teachers, local media and everyone else. Many of us students developed an irrational hate for the man, just because you'd hear about him non-stop. So, I'm glad to see that Elmo is getting in on the enka action and will hopefully upstage the man.

Here, Elmo is reciting the song "Tsugaru Kaikyo Fuyu-geshiki," of which we've got the original, and not-so-Elmo-y version waiting for you after the jump. The song was one of the big hits of the 70s in the enka scene -- big enough to have a monument dedicated to it.

I'm sure this video will be such a life-changer for you that you're instantly going to jump into the enka scene, and maybe even take a shot at recording your own enka CD. I know you guys.
