Chihiro Onitsuka - She's not Twinkle Princess

If reports around the net are to be believed then she may well be about as potty as a large, rabbit-like creature in the third month of the year, but it has been my belief for a fair few years now that perhaps the greatest singer-songwriter on the planet is the little-known-outside-her-native-country Japanese singer Chihiro Onitsuka.

In typical Japanese style, she is a bit of a star in the Land of the Rising Sun and relatively unknown elsewhere, but internet searches will soon reveal pockets of dedicated fandom all round the free world. And deservedly so too, even if she has lost some of her vocal prowess in recent years following the dreaded throat surgery. So, for those who are interested, I give you... Chihiro Onitsuka.

Infection by Chihiro Onitsuka complete with dazzling 80s style computer effect.

Aaaah! Chihiro! Marvellous! If only I knew what the hell she was singing about.

Oh, what the heck. Here's another one.
