Shipbuilding by Naomi Araki- the most sublime cover version

well, i ask you

Unquestionably the most beautiful cover version of the Costello/Wyatt classic.

Shipbuilding / Naomi Araki 感傷 荒木尚美

I was loving this beautiful song from 80 ‘s.
But I was too nervous to sing that words.

Millennium Day ,16 years ago.
I sang by a club at the moment when the 21st century has started.
”I’d like to sing this song on this special day.”
To think so and clear a problem of words.
I wrote quite private words with Japanese for the day.
So these Japanese words are not translation of original words.

This song is really beautiful song.
I felt like singing this song in 16 years after.
I pay my respects to Clive Langer, Elvis Costello and Robert Wyatt.
