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.
