Shonen Knife

I’m not a big one for japan­ese pop music, or even japan­ese-amer­i­can pop music, or even pop music. but i’ll make an excep­tion for this song by Shon­en Knife. It is called Jaka­lope. I find no end of inter­est in the fact that a some mid­dle-aged japan­ese women were so fas­ci­nat­ed with an ani­mal that lives in the mythol­o­gy of red­necked tooth-defi­cient out­doorsy igno­ra­mus­es from the plain states and big sky coun­try that they wrote a song about it.
