Kyu Sakamoto was a Japanese singer and actor, best known outside of Japan for his international hit song “Sukiyaki”, which was sung in Japanese and sold over 13 million copies.
To be accesible, the song was renamed “Sukiyaki”. The new title was intended to sound both catchy and distinctively Japanese, but had no actual connection to the song.
“Ue o muite arukō” (“I look up when I walk”) remains the only Japanese song to reach number one on the Billboard pop charts in the United States, a position it maintained for three weeks in 1963.
On August 12, 1985, Kyu Sakamoto died in the crash of Japan Airlines Flight 123, the deadliest single-aircraft accident in history, and the third deadliest plane crash in history in terms of fatalities behind the September 11, 2001, attacks and the Tenerife airport disaster.
