Urusei Yatsura :
The album / song is so obscure that I can't even find a video on YT for the song, just the album.
The link will start at the right song.

(Also, the version of Umbada I'd recommend is the version from the Festival da Cancao, but the version you included is fine as well)

Since this website is the reason I found this singer - I figure that's as good a reason to nominate for this game.

Yeah, it’s silly, but I enjoy it. Not everybody sees it as just a joke.

Hey Spiritualized, I like the AM rank that you added. Just one more step in the process for you that adds time, (I'm sure), but it's really cool to ponder the worldwide critics' collective placements against tracks that didn't place as high, (or not at all), and wonder why. Nice job!

A pleasure to see you approve :) I always try to improve things to keep them fresh and interesting. This change seemed pertinent.
