We Love Japan – The Song Edition (No Turn Unstoned #146)

The 2nd of 4 special sets for Japan. This one features my favorite songs by artists of Japanese descent. They have provided me with so much listening pleasure over the span of my lifetime that the very least I can do is acknowledge their musical impact. Please repay their artistry by supporting the Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Relief fund: http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/japan-earthquake-tsunami-relief/
